Joel McHale's new Netflix talk show will avoid Trump and politics
The Joel McHale Show With Joel McHale will focus on what McHale knows best: pop-culture. "On The Soup, we were never a political show," he says. "We were always about covering the coverage. So, if there was something going on in the news, and everyone was talking about it, we would always say, 'This was how this was presented' and we make a joke about it. But me, I'm not smart enough to give a searing political indictment." ALSO: Watch McHale reunite with Community's Jim Rash and Alison Brie.
