Los Angeles, March 22, 2013 - Two of television's cleverest series "The Soup" and "Chelsea Lately" present even more laughs and more surprises, when Joel McHale and Chelsea Handler bring their signature no-holds-barred brands of comedy to present hour-long special episodes filled with pop culture milestones and unpredictable moments.

Now that award season is over, funnyman Joel McHale is finally ready to honor the truly greatest (funniest), most inspirational (jaw-dropping), and memorable (outrageous) moments in recent television history with the prestigious Soup Award. In this special one-hour episode, McHale is joined by some of television's most buzzed about personalities to commemorate the top disastrous and irreverent TV events over the past year. Currently scheduled to appear on the show are RuPaul ("RuPaul's Drag Race"), Jim Rash ("Community"), Rich Sommer ("Mad Men"), Kate Flannery ("The Office"), Seth Green ("Family Guy"), Brace ("Gigolos"), Art Mann ("Art Mann Presents..."), and numerous other surprise appearances. Join Joel and his assembly of celebrity misfits to give accolades out to "Best Supporting Actor (non-human)," "What is a Dumbass, Alex Award," and the prestigious "The Award for the Person We Were Most Afraid of Inviting To Accept Their Award So We Didn't Award" plus many more. This is one award show you won't want to miss.

Following "The Soup Awards," join late-night's queen of comedy Chelsea Handler as she celebrates "Chelsea Lately's" milestone 1081st episode with a full hour of laughs and pop culture commentary that includes a rotating roundtable, surprise celebrity guests and a special musical performance and interview by country sensation Blake Shelton. As if that weren't enough, the celebration kicks off with a cannot-miss hilarious skit that will be hot topic social buzz for weeks to come. Join Chelsea, her sidekick little nugget Chuy Bravo, her revolving roundtable of moronic comedians (including: Sarah Colonna, Jen Kirkman, Heather McDonald, Fortune Feimster, Jiffy Wild, Chris Franjola, Brad Wollack, Loni Love and Ross Mathews), the incredibly talented Blake Shelton and some very special surprise guests to celebrate "Chelsea Lately's" hour-long 1081st episode. And why celebrate 1081 episodes you ask? Because we can!
