"Talk Soup" is a song by "Weird Al" Yankovic. The song's title is a reference to the cable show Talk Soup, which appeared on E!

The lyrics describe a man who is desperate to appear on Geraldo, Sally Jessy Raphael, or any other daytime talk show and talk about his bizarre relationships, uncommon family relations, and his unusual opinions.

Originally, E! approached Al and asked him if he would write a song for their cable show "Talk Soup." Al supposedly wrote the lyrics, "which they approved," recorded the song, "which they said they loved." E!, however never used it.[1] The song ends with the same "E!" clip used at the end of the show of the same name.
