'The Soup': Kathie Lee Gifford And Hoda Kotb Show Up Looking For Revenge (VIDEO)

Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb have been the target of Joel McHale and "The Soup" (Wed., 10 p.m. ET on E!) for years, so it was about time they returned the favor. They've talked about him a bit during their show on "Today" from time to time, but when "The Soup" came to New York, they realized they had a chance to take their revenge to the source.

The pair showed up throughout the show, with wine glasses in hand, sharing plenty of barbs against the host and his show. But McHale held his own, keeping the jokes coming about their constant drinking -- with them playing along with that image as well.

It was clearly a mutual love-fest and a lot of fun to watch, but did Gifford and Kotb really get the upper hand in their long-standing back and forth with McHale? Likely not, but at least they proved themselves good sports about the whole thing.

Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb can be seen every morning during the fourth hour of "Today," while Joel McHale and "The Soup" are on Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on E!
