Red Eye w/Greg Gutfeld is an American late-night/early-morning satirical talk show on the Fox News Channel, airing at 3:00 am ET Tuesday through Saturday, 11:00 pm Saturday, and 2:00 am Sunday.[4] The show features panelists and guests discussing the latest news in politics, pop culture, entertainment, business, sports, and religion.[5] The show is hosted by Greg Gutfeld, a self-described libertarian,[6] who is a former Maxim UK editor.

In 2007, VH1 contributor Michelle Collins described watching Red Eye w/Greg Gutfeld as: "You almost feel like you're going out and not going out. It's like being at a bar with your friends and hearing all their opinions—while laying in bed eating Snackwell cookies."[7]


Assembling the panel[edit]

Andrew Levy discovered Gutfeld's writings on the Huffington Post and began leaving comments on Gutfeld's posts. As Levy's comments grew to include responses to other commenters, Levy "half-thought" the more outrageous comments were by Gutfeld himself. After discovering a post on Levy's blog on this theory, Gutfeld e-mailed Levy he did not write them, which began a correspondence between them. Gutfeld would eventually notify Levy about upcoming posts or ask him to look at his writing. Levy was also asked to join Gutfeld's new blog "The Daily Gut." Later Levy was asked by Gutfeld to join him in a new Fox News program.[8]

Bill Schulz was an assistant editor at Stuff Magazine when Gutfeld was hired as Editor in Chief.[9] Toronto Sun columnist Rachel Marsden was added later. Gutfeld remarked, "I think they just thought she would be a good kind of lightning rod."[10]

Show's name[edit]

Red Eye w/Greg Gutfeld was originally named Wasteland in its early testing stages. At one time, a series of video clips of this early version were available on the Fox News website.[11] The original name, Wasteland, was selected because the show was about "a land of waste" and meaninglessness. The show was later renamed Red Eye because the original name was thought to be too negative and would repel viewers.[12] The phrase "Red Eye" was chosen because the term was likely to resonate with viewers because it somehow captured the essence of the program.[13] John Moody, Executive Vice President of News Editorial for Fox News, stated, "We want a word... that evokes what the show is." Shelly Stevenson, senior producer at Fox News said, "we wanted to come up with something that tipped its hat to the people we are serving."[13] According to Moody, one of the producers, among the original target audiences were "slackers and losers," the "depressed, the dissatisfied, the depraved," "bloggers, and those "age 18–40"[14] According to columnist Donald Lambro, in the age of hyper-political-correctness, Red Eye has become "the go-to show for the rigid and the joyless – those poor wonks at watchdog blogs whose only way of income is creating a universe of make-believe offensiveness."[15]

Legal issues[edit]

Following the first weeks of the program, the Chicago Tribune filed suit against News Corporation, the company which owns Fox News Channel, alleging that the show's title could be confused with the Tribune's free commuter daily, RedEye, launched in 2002.[16] Senior Vice President of Fox News John Moody proposed to U.S. District Judge Elaine Bucklo that Red Eye be blacked out from Chicago area viewers to prevent confusion with the Tribune's RedEye. In the event Fox News lost the case, Moody proposed cancelling Red Eye and reinstating reruns of Fox Report w/ Shepard Smith.[12]

On April 4, Judge Bucklo denied the Tribune Co. injunction request. Bucklo stated that while the trademarks may be similar aurally, but not visually, Fox did not show intent to "pass off" Red Eye as a collaboration with the Tribune. Bucklo also noted a dissimilarity in content which "appear[ed] to include anything that strikes Gutfeld's interest." Discussion "rarely appear to last longer than a minute" and the format was "intended to be outrageous and funny." Bucklo also writes, "Animals and sexual topics dominate the discussions." [17] Bucklo stated that "the only similarities between the products are the fact that both involve a media used to deliver news."[18][19][20]

Rachel Marsden's departure[edit]

On May 30, 2007, regular Red Eye panelist Rachel Marsden was removed from the show and escorted out of the Red Eye offices by security guards, which Marsden alleged is standard procedure when a Fox employee is fired.[21][22] On her blog, Marsden, said, "I will no longer be appearing on the show, as I have been told that it is heading in a 'different direction' from its inception and I am the 'first casualty'. As a political and news commentator, being a panelist on what had become a totally off-the-wall-and-into-orbit show was an interesting experience. It was also the first time that I was ever considered the 'sane one' on any program, so I am grateful for that unique opportunity and wish the boys the very best of luck.'"[23] Her last appearance on the show was on May 30, 2007, after talking through the laughter of a Jeffrey Ross punchline.

Bill Schulz' departure[edit]

Schulz's final appearance on Red Eye was on November 7, 2013, and his departure (for undisclosed reasons) was officially announced on November 22.


On March 29, 2011, the first episode of the Red Eye podcast debuted. Usually, a new podcast episode was available every day. Most installments featured Gutfeld, Levy and Schulz. In the event of an absence, Tom O'Connor, a Red Eye producer, filled in. Usual topics of discussion include what the cast does in the course of the day or weekend, news events, preparation for the show, and guests on that day's show. The podcast is currently offered in the YouTube video and MP3 audio format. With the start of The Five, the podcast was eventually discontinued, ending on August 22, 2011. A modified version which would become titled "Not LIVE! w/Lauren and Bill" debuted on April 4, 2012. Schulz and O'Connor were joined by Red Eye regular Lauren Sivan who appeared via remote from Los Angeles. After the departure of Schulz from Red Eye, the podcast was discontinued. The last episode was on October 17, 2013.

Joanne Nosuchinsky[edit]

On February 4, 2014, Miss New York USA 2013 Joanne Nosuchinsky was announced as the new permanent panelist. She had been a frequent guest on the show since her first appearance on September 18, 2013.


While the show airs at 3:00 am ET, it is actually taped at around 8:00 pm ET the previous night. Gutfeld joked, "We wouldn't be able to survive after three months because we'd all become raging alcoholics if we had to stay up until 3 am!"[24]

Episode structure[edit]

Host Greg Gutfeld (2014)

The show features a round table of panelists, as well as guests linked by satellite. Greg Gutfeld, with advisory from ombudsman Andy Levy, writes the daily content. The show begins with Gutfeld's introduction of his guests, which include flattering, exaggerated comparisons about each of them. These guest introductions are sometimes submitted by fans on Twitter. Other non-traditional characteristics of the show include the use of offbeat imagery, often obscure viral videos featuring animals, especially cats, during certain segments. Andy Levy, referred to as "TV's Andy Levy" or "TV's Very Own Andy Levy", acts as the show's ombudsman, appearing in the "Pregame Report", "Halftime Report w/ Andy Levy" and "Postgame Wrap-Up'" segments. Immediately after the 'Postgame Wrap-Up', Greg Gutfeld thanks his guests, offering each a short compliment; for example, "A pleasure," or "Always a delight." Eventually, the halftime report was merged with the post game wrap up and became "The Post Game Report". The "Report" segments were later dropped all together when Andy became a regular on the panel.

Show's segments[edit]

Daily segments[edit]

Recurring (but infrequent) segments[edit]

Media Matters is frequently lampooned using "Robot Theater".[33][34][35] After the Washington Post reported in March 2011 on a planned "On-camera Media Training Seminar" for Media Matters employees, Red Eye Robot Theater's criticism of Media Matters was expressed in the desperate plea of a Media Matters robot-employee:

I have no other skills. My job is to obsessively watch Fox News. If you take that away, I have nothing: no friends, no family, no life. I am a shell of a human, deluded into thinking I have purpose, when all I really am is a conduit for my boss's simmering jealousy over past slights. Fox News is evil and wrong. Fox News is evil and wrong. Fox News is evil and wrong.[34][36]

On June 8, 2011, "Red Eye Robot Theater" featured a female robot for the first time, representing the female involved in the Weinergate sexting scandal.[37][38] This sketch was an re-enactment of an actual Facebook sexting communication between a Las Vegas female Blackjack dealer and Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY).[39][40][41] The June 8, 2011, 'Red Eye Robot Theater' transcript follows:[42]
WEINER ROBOT: Off to the shower. This thing is bopping up and down.
FEMALE ROBOT: Ahh, wish I was in the shower with you to help.
WEINER ROBOT: You give good [bleep]?
FEMALE ROBOT: I have been told really good and I love doing it.
WEINER ROBOT: Wow. A Jewish girl who sucks [bleep]. This thing is ready to do damage.
FEMALE ROBOT: And [bleep] every drop. How the [bleep] do I get you here to help [bleep] me?
WEINER ROBOT: Thinking about [bleeping] your hot mouth with my [bleep].
FEMALE ROBOT: The anticipation of [bleeping] you is driving me crazy. Come to Vegas so I can suck your [bleep] for an hour. You must be in the shower. I am getting a very nice visual for bed. I will probably have some filthy dreams about you, again.

Retired segments[edit]

Recurring elements[edit]


"Pinch",[47] a caricature of the liberal elite media named after Times publisher Arthur "Pinch" Sulzberger, was a puppet made from a folded New York Times newspaper and was intended to represent The New York Times itself, not simply a single correspondent or columnist. The puppet was voiced by series-regular Bill Schulz, who also operated the mouth movements by pulling a string atop the puppet. Pinch had appeared in nearly every episode since his debut, except for episodes where Schulz was absent. However, on April 8, 2011, Dana Vachon was the first person to voice and operate Pinch other than Schulz, who was absent at the time.

Pinch debuted on March 21, 2009 and was originally known as the New York Times Correspondent. After previous attempts by Gutfeld to call him "Timsey", on the March 26 show, the New York Times Correspondent said that "Pinch" would be an acceptable name because "you save a pinch when reading me." Pinch was often heard coughing excessively and, after July 15, 2009, Bill Schulz occasionally changed Pinch's healthy-looking cardboard eyes to sick-looking blood-shot cardboard eyes. As a reference to the national epidemic of newspapers slimming down by reducing content and cutting staff, Pinch was also drastically reduced over time to merely one thin section of newsprint. On March 31, 2011, Pinch disingenuously explained his "weight loss" by proclaiming, "Today's columnist talks about why he is joining the hunger strike with congressional budget cuts for the poor and hungry. To repeat, my weight loss is directly related to this movement and has nothing to do with the drop in advertising and/or circulation."[48]

Pinch was introduced alongside the rest of the panel at the beginning of the show, usually speaking after Gutfeld prompted him with, "Good to see you again, Pinch", sometimes adding, "you piece of trash." Schulz then responded in character as Pinch with a rhyme; often, the rhyme was a satiric plug for a column or article that referenced a New York Times columnist or reporter by name.[49]

The March 12, 2011 episode marked the debut of "Porch", Pinch's intern. He was a miniature version of Pinch taken from a Bill Schulz bobblehead figure.[50] Both Porch and Pinch have since been discontinued.

The leg chair[edit]

Another recurring element of the show is the "leg chair," the seat on the right-most side of the table.[51] Repeatedly referred to by this name by Gutfeld, Levy and others, this chair is reserved almost exclusively for female guests of the show, providing an unobscured view of their legs in wide shots of the set.[52][53] Female guests seem willing to play along; however, some have expressed varied feelings toward the leg chair. For example, during the April 15, 2010 episode, Gutfeld and Imogen Lloyd Webber had the following exchange:

Lloyd Webber: "Next thing [Cambridge will] have girls on Red Eye in the leg chair." (referring jokingly to herself)[54]
Gutfeld: "How dare you... you are obsessed with the leg chair."
Lloyd Webber: "I am, yes."

Outrage glasses[edit]

When Bill Schulz became exceptionally upset about a topic, he would often put on a pair of Buddy Holly-style large, black glasses known as the "outrage glasses". He would then speak in a farcical, hyper-angry voice. This was often considered to have originated as a playful response to frequent recurring conservative guest S.E. Cupp, who normally wore similar glasses and often expressed her outrage.[55] The first time Schulz donned glasses, he was seated next to Cupp.

In a March 2011 Twitter post, Schulz claimed to have discovered the glasses behind a set of his father's vintage toy trucks in his house.[56]

Semi-subliminal messages as running gag[edit]

Starting in May 2011, a split-second image with a short message has been infrequently flashed over close-up shots of Greg Gutfeld, Bill Schulz, Andy Levy, or sometimes over one of the guests during panel discussion. These semi-subliminal messages always involve either Gutfeld, Schulz or Levy wearing a silver-metallic mask with short messages printed underneath in large capital letters. The short message under Greg Gutfeld's image has been "REDEEM HIM",[57] "PUNISH HIM"[58] (flashed March 6, 2011), "FEED IT"[59][60] (flashed 6-22-2011), or "RETURN HIM"[61] (flashed 8-25-2011). The short message under Bill Schulz's image was "AVOID HIM", "AVENGE HIM"[62][63] (both flashed several times each during May 2011), or "RELISH HIM"[64] (flashed 7-08-11). The message under Andy Levy's image has been either "SAVE HIM" (flashed late-May 2011) or "OBEY HIM"[65][66] (flashed October 6, 2011).

Andy Levy's running gag[edit]

Andy Levy often mocks Gutfeld by saying, "I apologize for nothing."[67] This is in reference to the 2009 controversy where Gutfeld had to apologize to the Canadian military for comments made on Red Eye which lampooned their announced need for a "synchronized break" during wartime in Afghanistan. Gutfeld has responded to Levy's mocking statement with, "I apologize for everything."


Political proxy vs. destructive force[edit]

In a September 28, 2010, Rolling Stone article, President Barack Obama stated that Greg Gutfeld's network, Fox News Channel, has a "point of view that I think is ultimately destructive for the long-term growth of a country that has a vibrant middle-class."[68][69] Red Eye host Greg Gutfeld responded to Obama's political comments with his following September 29, 2010 Greg-alogue:[70][71]

Okay. So, you're the President of the United States, with both houses under your control. You also have the most fawning press of any president in the history of the Universe. And yet you let Fox News Channel get under your skin, because it's the only network that doesn't have a "thrill up its leg"?[note 1] Obama is like a sports team who owns the Ref, the fans and the field, but refuses to play ball until the kid in the 10th row stops chewing gum.

Then Gutfeld advanced the theory that President Obama uses Fox News as a proxy for those Americans who do disagree with his policies:[71]

"And this is why the Crybaby-in-Chief needs us. It provides cover, so Obama can criticize Americans without ever saying 'those Americans.' He can just say Fox News instead. One thing is for sure: If you go after a collection of talking-heads, you're going to get an earful back. And if you disagree with me, you're a racist, homophobic, taurophobe."

Canadian military lampooned – demands apology[edit]

In a five-minute segment broadcast on Tuesday, March 17, 2009, Gutfeld and his panel discussed Canadian Lieutenant General Andrew Leslie's statement that the Canadian military may require a one year "synchronized break" once Canada's mission in Afghanistan ends in 2011.[72] "Meaning, the Canadian military wants to take a breather to do some yoga, paint landscapes, run on the beach in gorgeous white Capri pants," Gutfeld said.[72] "I didn't even know they were in the war", comedian panelist Doug Benson added, then continued, "I thought that's where you go if you don't want to fight. Go chill in Canada."[73] Gutfeld also said: "Isn't this the perfect time to invade this ridiculous country? They have no army!"[72] Schulz made comments about the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and their ceremonial red uniforms, and concluded by saying "This is not a smart culture!"[74]

The segment drew wide attention and outrage in Canada after being posted on YouTube for Canadians to view and after the reported deaths just three days later (Friday, March 20, 2009) of four Canadian soldiers in Afghanistan.[75][76][77] On CBC News, Gutfeld described his show as "a satirical take on the news, in which all topics are addressed in a lighthearted, humorous and ridiculous manner."[78]

Doug Benson was scheduled to appear in Canada at Edmonton's The Comic Strip April 3–5, 2009, but the shows were canceled after the owner received threats of "bodily injury" toward the American comic. "Some were saying he wouldn't make it from the airport to the club. For everyone's safety, we decided it was best to avoid the scenario altogether," manager Rick Bronson said.[79]

Canadian Defence Minister Peter MacKay called on Fox to apologize for the satirical comments, describing the remarks as "despicable, hurtful and ignorant." Hours after the March 17 comments, Gutfeld maintained the show is satirical and irreverent[80] but offered the following apology: "The March 17 episode of Red Eye included a segment discussing Canada's plan for a 'synchronized break,' which was in no way an attempt to make light of troop efforts. However, I realize that my words may have been misunderstood. It was not my intent to disrespect the brave men, women and families of the Canadian military, and for that I apologize."[78]

Park51: located at the crossroads of "Sensibility" & "Sensitivity"[edit]

On August 10, 2010, it was reported that Gutfeld planned on constructing the city's first Islamic-friendly gay bar next to the unfinished Park51 Islamic community center, known at the time as Cordoba House and often referred to as the "Ground Zero mosque" in the media.[81][82][83][84] As Gutfeld stated in his August 9, 2010 Greg-alogue,[85] which was featured and discussed on Red Eye w/Greg Gutfeld: "As an American, I believe they have every right to build the mosque. Which is why, in the spirit of outreach...I'm announcing tonight, that I am planning to open the first gay bar that caters not only to the west, but also Islamic gay men. I hope the mosque owners will be as open to the bar, as I am to the new mosque. After all, the belief driving them to open their center near Ground Zero is no different than mine...understanding and tolerance." He also stated an entire floor will only serve non-alcoholic (virgin) drinks, in keeping with its Muslim-friendly atmosphere.[85]

Gutfeld later e-mailed and tweeted the developers at Cordoba House seeking a response to his idea. They tweeted back: "You're free to open whatever you like. If you won't consider the sensibilities of Muslims, you're not going to build dialog."[86] After that tweet, Gutfeld announced he wanted to build and name his gay bar Dialogue. Other names for the proposed gay bar were sent into the Red Eye host (via Twitter and Internet) by fans, such as: al Gayda, Grind Zero, and Jihard. Gutfeld asked the developers to appear on his show to talk about the reason they rejected New York Gov. David Paterson's offer of New York State property farther from Ground Zero. Gutfeld noted the irony when they declined his invitation to talk by their reasoning he wouldn't engage in "dialogue". Gutfeld has stated he supports the constitutional right to build a mosque on that site; however, it is not a matter of freedom of religion but a question of sensitivity toward New Yorkers and Americans, who were the targets and victims on 9-11, that should be considered first and foremost.[86][87][88]

Public response by media, like Media Matters, and others to Gutfeld's gay-bar proposal was that he was an "Islamophobic bigot". Gutfeld called his critics "the humorless left" and "ignorant cowards" who were afraid to "condemn real homophobia in the world". Gutfeld said: "Their accusations of Islamophobia are meant to hide their cowardice concerning gay rights" conflicting with Islamic teachings.[89] "After all, Islam despises homosexuality - and this muslim-friendly gay bar would help mend fences", Gutfeld said.[90] Gutfeld insisted he was serious about building this gay-bar. He said he solicited some investors and received "countless inquiries regarding investments."[81][90] [91]

In popular culture[edit]

Red Eye is used on the show Louie in the episode titled "Come On, God," Gutfeld hosts a debate between Louis C.K. & Ellen Farber. Ellen is the spokeswoman for an organization called Christians Against Masturbation, while Louie is the only person they could find to defend masturbation.

Red Eye also appeared in three of Taiwan's Next Media Animations. The first was Is Islamophobia sweeping the US?[92] which showed Gutfeld's gay bar next to the Park51 complex. The second video was Bedbugs Take Over USA.[93] The final scene shows Gutfeld, Levy, and Schulz being attacked and eaten by giant bedbugs on the Red Eye set. The third video, Glenn Beck leaving Fox. Who will replace him?, proposed Red Eye as the best replacement for Glenn Beck because 5:00 pm is "when people are actually awake" while Gutfeld spars with a giant bedbug.[94]

Clips from Red Eye have been on Russell Howard's Good News.

Information about Red Eye '​s Nielsen ratings is sparse. In March 2007, when the show was still airing at 2:00 am ET, Red Eye averaged 309,000 viewers in its time slot, down about 9 percent from March 2006 when another show aired in that same time slot. In the age 25–54 demographic, however, the show was up 15 percent from the prior year. In March 2006, the 2:00–3:00 am time slot averaged 134,000 demo viewers; in March 2007, it was 154,000. In the 18–34 demo, the time slot was up 27 percent, from 33,000 to 42,000.[96]

After the show moved to its current 3:00 am ET time slot in October 2007, Red Eye '​s ratings decreased. As of the show's one-year anniversary, average viewership dipped 15 percent, to 285,000. The 25–54 demo was down 24 percent, to 123,000.[97] The show's second anniversary episode on February 5, 2009, however, showed significant improvement: Red Eye averaged 390,000 viewers, with 166,000 in the 25–54 demo.[98] Nielsen also found that in March 2008, 6.1 percent of Red Eye's total viewership came from those who recorded the show, as opposed to watching it when it aired.[99]

In July 2009, Red Eye averaged 335,000 viewers, with 135,000 in the demo.[100] In September 2009, Red Eye averaged 433,000 viewers, with 203,000 in the demo.[101] In 2009, Red Eye was the 40th-highest rated cable news program, in terms of average total viewers. It averaged 365,000 viewers, with 163,000 in the demo.[102] From February 1–5, 2010, the week of the show's third anniversary, Red Eye again averaged 433,000 viewers, with 180,000 in the demo.[103]

By its 1,000th show, Red Eye averaged 365,000 viewers, with 185,000 in the 25–54 demographic, up 17 percent over 2010 in total viewers and up 13 percent in the demo.[104] In October 2011, the show averaged the largest audience in its history. In the key 25 to 54 age demographic, it beat CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight, Erin Burnett Outfront, John King, USA; MSNBC's Morning Joe and Hardball With Chris Matthews; and HLN's Nancy Grace.[105]

On August 17, 2013, Red Eye celebrated its 1,500th episode. That month, the show averaged 434,000 viewers, with 158,000 in the demo. Despite its 3:00 am ET timeslot, it beat all but two of MSNBC's shows in the demo, and its overall viewership was just behind All In with Chris Hayes and Piers Morgan Live, which air on MSNBC at 8:00 pm and on CNN at 9:00 pm, respectively.[106]

For the month of January 2014, Red Eye averaged 488,000 total viewers a night and 195,000 viewers in the key 25 to 54 viewing demographic.[107]

My, I felt this thrill going up my leg. I mean, I don't have that too often."
