Joel McHale is making a show about the wonderful world of Internet comments

For over 10 years, Joel McHale has used his position as the host of E!’s The Soup to make fun of the stupid things that famous people do. Us normal people, however, were spared from the pain of his biting sarcasm and dry wit. Unfortunately, those days are over. Joel MicHale is now producing a new series for E! that will take non-famous people down a peg, and he’s specifically targeting the worst members of society: Internet commenters.

Wait, did we say worst? We mean best! People who leave comments on the Internet are literally the best people in the world. The vast majority of them are just as incredibly intelligent as they are hilarious, and we suspect many of them are pretty good looking, too. The series—which is the first fruit of McHale’s new production development deal with the network—is titled Comments Section, and it will be hosted by comedian Michael Kosta. According to Deadline, the show will be based on Kosta “deconstructing the often snarky comments on popular websites,” but it neglects to mention which popular websites will see their comments deconstructed.

Luckily, here at The A.V. Club, we know our own comments sections are devoid of the “snark” that other websites might find themselves inundated with, so surely our commenters will be free from the vicious deconstruction of this Michael Kosta fellow. No, but seriously, our commenters can out-snark the snarkiest commenter in the snarkiest comments section on the snarkiest day of their life, even if they have an automatic snarking machine. So, this is it, commenters. This is your opportunity to make the greatest and most profoundly snarky comment of your commenting career and get on TV because of it. Don’t waste it on “FIRSTIES,” or a Dawes joke, or a bunch of hilarious puns, because Joel McHale and the E! network are now watching you. Make us proud!
