Red Eye: Replacing Fox Report Repeat

By Brian 

A couple notes about FNC’s new late-night show Red Eye:

It represents “one of two recent initiatives that appear to be attempts to broaden the definition of a news channel. FNC committed to two pilot episodes of ‘The Half-Hour News Hour,’ a right-leaning satiric take on the news, produced by ’24’ writer-producer Joel Surnow,” Variety says.

The show will replace a repeat of The Fox Report with Shepard Smith
