RedEye with Greg Gutfeld…….

Today for a moment or two I want to talk about the Fox News Channels “Redeye with Greg Gutfeld” (http://www.foxsnews.com/redeye).  If you have never heard of it shame on you.  It is on at 3 a.m. (but hey that’s what DVR’s are for!) and is one of the funniest shows on television.  The diminutive host Greg Gutfeld and his guest discuss various issues of the day, some sublime and some ridiculous, and do it in such a way as to make other shows jealous.  The “cast” is comprised of the host Gutfeld (a former magazine editor), his grotesque sidekick (their words not mine) and token liberal Bill Schultz, an ombudsman Andy Levy (known as TV’s Andy Levy) and the a talking copy of the New York Times simply know as “Pinch”.   The remaining guests are a combination of various comedian’s, B-list and below celebrities, bloggers, musicians and various FNC anchors, who if female occupy the “leg chair”.  The leg chair is the one most visible to the camera.  Frequent occupants of the “leg chair” include FNC anchors Patti Ann Brown aka “The Notorious PAB” and Juliet Huddy. As well as columnists S.E. Cupp (http://www.redsecupp.com), Ann Coulter (http://www.anncoulter.com) and generally more amazingly gorgeous women than you can shake a stick at.  

 The show first aired on February 5, 2007.  It has since gained a remarkable cult following and regularly beats the offerings of CNN and MSNBC in the ratings (http://www.mediaite.com/tv/red-eye-at-3amet-beat-cnn-and-msnbc-in-every-non-prime-time-hour-tuesday).  In that time is has also seen the stature of its guest increase as well.  Michigan Congressman Thaddeus McCotter is a frequent guest as well many running for office. 

 The shows take on events is decidedly offbeat and more than often a bit off color.  The politics of the show slant right but the “debates” are generally very well balanced as there are many liberal guests.  I mentioned that Bill Schultz is the token liberal.  Gutfeld while a Republican is decidedly libertarian in his positions, particularly on social issues.  While the ombudsman Andy Levy is a self-professed Libertarian. 

 This is a show I never miss.  If you have not yet seen it you simply must.  I insist. 

 And if you disagree with me then you are a racist, homophobe (watch it and you will see what I mean)!
