‘Red Eye’ Celebrates Seventh Anniversary

By Merrill Knox Comment

red eye“Red Eye,” Fox News’ late-night show with Greg Gutfeld and Andy Levy, is celebrating its seventh anniversary today. Gutfeld — who is also one of the co-hosts of “The Five” — talks to Parade about the milestone:

Because Red Eye airs at 3 a.m., Gutfeld and company have to approach stories differently because, by that hour, they’ve already been done to death. “We usually add a surreal, absurd edge to it, and then we try to find stories that are tangential to the main story that no one covered,” says Gutfeld. For example, while most shows have taken a serious look at the Olympics, Red Eye covered a photo of one of the strange communal restrooms some people will encounter in Sochi.

Gutfeld describes the show as “a friendly, absurd take on news and pop culture by your average, but somewhat irreverent, group of jackasses.”

Gutfeld announced the show’s anniversary on last night’s show. “Yes, this train wreck has been going on for seven damn years,” he joked. Watch after the jump.
