Greg Gutfeld’s Plan for ‘The Five': Unicorns


By Alex Weprin Comment

Today Fox News Channel debuts its Summer replacement show at 5 PM, “The Five.” One of the regular panelists on the program will be “Red Eye” host Greg Gutfeld, who, if this interview with Zap2It is any indication, is relishing the chance to be on TV when there is light outside:

“It’s almost like saying you’re at the kiddie table, and now you’re coming to the grown-up table. I feel like I can pretty much do any hour, it’s just whether or not they trust me to do it, which I think they do. I’m excited about it.

“At least, a lot of my friends can actually see me on TV now, because they just couldn’t be bothered to stay awake until 3 a.m.”

He was also asked if any of his favorite bits from “Red Eye” will make the transition to daytime. The answer is yes:

“I, actually, will be working unicorns into the show,” says Gutfeld. “So, by the end of the year, it will be 90 percent unicorns, 10 percent news.”
