The Soup/August 21 guide trickery

If you suddenly get excited that The Soup is expanding to an hour starting this week...don't. E! is pulling the new bait-and-switch trick where the first show is actually just a half-hour (here, The Soup), leading into another new half-hour show in order to drive 'wait until the recording ends without knowing how long it is' viewership; here it's The Comments Section, a dreadful show about stupid Internet comments that judging from its first two weeks on the air, has no buzz and is quickly being tuned off, so E! is playing with their guide listings for desperate viewership.

It's being done next week too, so plan/punish accordingly.
