John Henson does it all. Well, we're not sure he does windows, but he is an actor, writer, host and producer of over 1,400 hours of television. You probably know him best from his years as former host of the Emmy Award-winning Talk Soup on E! Entertainment Television. Prior to his stint at Talk Soup, you may have seen John during his years touring the country as a stand-up comedian, or even on many of his multiple television appearances. During his four and a half years as host and executive producer at E! Entertainment Television, he received three Emmy nominations and four Cable Ace nominations. After his time at Talk Soup, he hosted the live GQ Awards pre-show, created his own hour long weekly series,The John Henson Project at Spike TV and served as host, writer and executive producer for TV Guide Network's longest-running series Watch This. He also hosted the Creative Arts Technical Emmys opposite Meredith Vieira. He recently had a recurring guest star role on the hit NBC series My Name Is Earl, and served as celebrity guest host on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. As a writer, John has contributed to US Weekly and TV Guide Magazine and is also a regular pop culture analyst for CNN and MSNBC. Never slowing down, John recently expanded his production company, Skunk Boy Inc., and is set to produce the film Making Jack Falcone which is based on the New York Times best-selling book. John is back to sum up the spills and splashes on the next season of Wipeout!
