->''"Welcome to ''Red Eye''. It's like ''ReturnOfTheJedi'', if by 'Jedi', you mean 'a mysterious rash shaped like an avocado'."'' ''Red Eye With Greg Gutfeld'' is FoxNewsChannel's successful comedy offering, a panel discussion show hosted by former Maxim UK Editor Greg Gutfeld, along with his "repulsive {{sidekick}}" Bill Schulz, and ombudsman "[[MysteryScienceTheater3000 TV's]]" Andy Levy. It airs at 3:00 am ET Tuesday through Saturday. The show hovers between NewsParody and FauxNews, and it's like ''TheView'', if ''The View'' had a decidedly pro-Camp Gay bias. {{Dissimile}} and absurdist tangents abound. RefugeInVulgarity and GettingCrapPastTheRadar is sprinkled here and there, especially when [[http://youtu.be/Y78OpYdEzRQ introductions]] are given. The show features panelists and guests discussing the latest news in politics, pop culture, entertainment, business, sports, and religion. Guests on the show are primarily composed of political pundits, stand-up comedians, musicians, authors, and attractive women, virtually every episode containing one of each (and every single episode having an attractive female panelist sitting in the chair to the far right side of the table, affectionately referred to as the Leg Chair"). Political opinions often vary amongst the guests, with the show's main trio consisting of an oddly perfect balance: Greg's a conservative, Bill's a liberal, and Andy's a Libertarian who hates conservatives and liberals. The show often takes pot-shots at everyone and everything under the sun, [[BitingTheHandHumor including Fox News itself]]. Despite its middle-of-the-night timeslot, the show has beaten most ''primetime'' cable news shows in the ratings, and developed a loyal [[{{CultClassic}} cult following]], making it arguably the only news program that can currently claim this status. ---- !!!This show provides examples of: * BaseballEpisode: ''Red Eye'' was challenged to a softball match by a ''strip club''. Greg, Bill, Andy, Courtney Friel and Professor Marc Lamont Hill of Columbia University and the strippers divided up and faced off. As one might expect with Red Eye, the game was riddled with oddness and stupidity, from Bill's pathetic headfirst slide/stumble into home plate, Andy's observation that most of the strippers are from "Russia, which I think is somewhere in Africa", and Greg's "stripper injury". * ButtMonkey: Bill is the most obvious, but all 3 of the ''Red Eye'' trio gets a turn. Bill is a Butt Monkey to Greg, who is often a Butt Monkey to Andy, who is in turn the target of jokes from both Greg AND Bill. ** Frequent guest Paul Mecurio takes the cake, however. When he's on, Greg and Andy can be just plain ''mean'' to the guy. * CallBack: During a Halloween episode, a zombie from Blood Manor named Rachel would silently stand right next to people as they spoke. When asked how he stayed so calm, Andy Levy responded "She was only the second scariest Rachel I ever met," a callback to former panelist Rachel Marsden. * {{Catchphrase}}: Greg has "And if you disagree with me, [[{{GodwinsLaw}} you sir, are worse than Hitler.]]" ** More recently, he's been using, "If you disagree with me, then you're a racist/homophobe." ** Andy Levy often says, "I apologize for nothing," while Gutfeld "apologizes for everything." ** Greg often opened the Mail Time with "You write, I read..." often followed by something involving blood or awesomeness, such as "You write, I read, then I run you over in a dune buggy made of FIRE!" * CloudCuckooLander: Greg Gutfeld, full stop. He's obsessed with unicorns, has a bizarre and twisted sense of humor, and is responsible for the majority of strange fake backstories for everyone. Even when appearing on other Fox News shows, he's just as bizarre as he is on ''Red Eye''. Although he only acts like this for satirical purposes on both shows and not in real life. * ComedicSociopath: '''Greg Gutfeld.''' According to his jokes about ''himself'', he is a globetrotting serial killer and molester with a cadre of captured, underaged boy slaves (who may or may not be sexual in nature) he calls "House Boys" he keeps locked in his basement, until he lets them up briefly to amuse him. That's when he's not forcing them to engage in disturbing "games" for their freedom. Also implied that they're all captured immigrants, none of them able to speak English. * ComicallyMissingThePoint: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o3DFuX1hOag Andy's question to Ann Coulter]] -->'''Andy:''' "Ann, you got in a little hot water for something you said about Jews on 'The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch'. As a Jew, I would remiss if I didn't ask: [[TakeThat What the HELL were you doing on CNBC?]]"\\ '''Ann:''' "Yes, many have asked."\\ '''Andy:''' "Yeah, don't do that again."\\ '''Ann:''' "Don't worry."\\ '''Greg:''' [[SelfDeprecatingHumor "After this show you won't be on anything."]] * DeadpanSnarker: Andy Levy is the '''Lord God Almighty''' of the Deadpan Snarkers. No one is safe (Democrats, Republicans, celebrities, The Black-Eyed Peas, etc.), and his snarking can be [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ndBWf0lZUJM absolutely]] ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TOjUKwoHUyw vicious]]''. His Twitter feed is almost nothing but snark. * {{Dissimile}}: Often used during the into of the show, starting with "Welcome to ''Red Eye''. It's like..." ** '[[WheresWaldo Where's Waldo?]]' if by 'Waldo' you mean 'Greg Gutfeld' and the answer is '[[SelfDeprecation who cares]]?' ** 'Literature/HowTheGrinchStoleChristmas', if by 'Grinch' you mean 'Bill' and 'Christmas' you mean 'my 8-ball.'(No, not [[Magic8Ball that 8-ball]]) ** '[[TheNeverendingStory The Neverending Story]]', if by 'Story', you mean 'Itch.' ** '[[SoYouThinkYouCanDance So You Think You Can Dance]]', if by 'dance', you mean 'escape from my basement.' * DoubleEntendre: Greg's guest intros are these. ** "If hilarity were a bowling alley, I'd roll my balls up and down him." ** Often crosses over into {{Refuge in Vulgarity}}; one introduction even made Greg Proops (host of the [[ToiletHumor Proops Poops]] segment) recoil. * EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Early episodes of the series were quite strange and felt completely unscripted, and the panelists themselves were rather odd as well. During an anniversary episode's flashback to a very early episode, Greg noted his "fat face", Andrew Breitbart's appearance, and Andy Levy's hairstyle and how he "looked like he belonged in an OingoBoingo tribute band" as well as Bill Hemmer referring to past-Andy as "Mrs. Andy Levy". * FreezeFrameBonus: A running gag on the show, where either an image of Pinch making a goofy expression, or images of one of the main trio wearing a creepy metal mask, with [[SubliminalSeduction subliminal messages]] such as "OBEY HIM" or "FEED IT" written below them, will flash on-screen for a second at random points in the show. * FreudianTrio: Gutfeld is TheKirk, Schulz is TheMcCoy, and Levy is TheSpock. * IgnoranceIsBliss: Played straight and often exaggerated. ** Greg believes Obama was not born in America, but in Hawaii, a "lovely little island nation." ** Greg is utterly clueless about sports. ** He has also boasted that the show is "built on ignorance." * {{Malaproper}}: Greg discussing the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbSzNnbr8ss joy of circus penis]]. [[HilarityEnsues Hilarity Ensues]] as the entire studio breaks down in laughter. * {{Muppet}}: Another "regular panelist" is Pinch, a puppet that serves as the show's "New York Times Correspondent." It is a copy of the NYT with cardboard eyes and a string attached, performed by Schulz. ** Recent episodes have a smaller version of Pinch called Porch, made from a smaller newspaper. ** Both have been absent in many more recent episodes, much to Andy's delight. * MetalDetectorCheckpoint: Apparently averted during a Christmas Mail Time, when a ''meat cleaver'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUQVFeWFLj4 was brought in]]. {{Lampshaded}} by Greg asking "How did this get into FOX?!" -->'''Greg:''' "Seriously, someone could have sent this as a murder weapon. Like, all this stuff could have been used at a crime."\\ '''Bill:''' "Your DNA is all over it."\\ '''Greg:''' "Haha, or it will be." * MundaneMadeAwesome: ''Government regulation... ''''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4MlX1YUhObg IS AWESOME!]]'' *frog explodes* * NamesTheSame: In one 2012 segment, co-panelists included wrestler Mick Foley along with Chris Barron, the head of GOPROUD (an organization of LGBT Republicans). During the commentary about some story, Foley made a joke about the song lyrics he thought Barron wrote, prompting everyone to do a FlatWhat. Foley, perplexed asked, "Wait, are you not who I thought you were?" It turns out that he confused Chris Barron of GOPROUD with Chris Barron of the early 90's jam band the Spin Doctors, of "{{JimmyOlsen}}'s Blues", "Two Princes", and Little Miss Can't Be Wrong" fame (the last song was the one Foley was referencing). This prompted a minutes-long exchange of laughter and Spin Doctors-based jokes, and everyone kept referencing the mix-up throughout the show. During the laughter, Foley paused and then asked "Being completely respectful and not joking at all here: so who ARE you?" prompting even more laughter, including from Barron himself. The whole thing ended up being one big CrowningMomentOfFunny, and everyone seemed to have fun with it. * NightmareFace: Frequent guest Andrew W.K. pulls off [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EqOTU89cgC4 an amazing one]]. * NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: Whenever Greg appears as British actor Victor Roberts (his alter ego), he uses his regular speaking voice, American accent and all. * OneOfUs: Andy Levy is an unabashed comic book and sci-fi geek, often appearing on the show with his [[Series/DoctorWho Sonic Screwdriver]]. * OffTheRails: It is exceedingly common for the Halftime Report to devolve into extended, bizarre exchanges between the panelists that are far removed from the topic, much to Andy's chagrin. This exchange that somehow stemmed from a story about the John Edwards affair: -->'''Greg:''' Bill, why are you dressed like a runaway?\\ '''Bill:''' It's cold in here! I feel bundled up.\\ '''Greg:''' He needs a long stick with a little tied-up bandana on the end.\\ '''Andy:''' It's called a bindle.\\ '''Jim Norton:''' He's like OliverTwist, if Oliver Twist did poppers.\\ ''Andy attempts to resume.''\\ '''Bill:''' He would have if they existed. Call me Dickens.\\ ''Andy attempts to resume again.''\\ '''Greg:''' That was so stupid, you're an idiot.\\ * PunnyName: Several of Greg's deceased houseboys, including "Dat Ho", "Tu Hung" and "Phen Wei Park". * StrawmanPolitical: Stereotypical liberalism and conservatism is often lampooned by Greg and Bill, respectively, painting certain news figures (and often each other) as this. When they actually do lapse into stereotypical partisan politics, Andy will call them on it during the Halftime Report. * TakeThat: All the time. Though Andy Levy is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z0S6CWieeLk especially]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o3DFuX1hOag brutal]]. ** Occasionally done by Greg to viewers that insult him in their fan mail. --> '''Greg:''' "Also, while I have your attention, I'm doing a survey: what's it like to be lonely?" * TimeTravel: A frequent way of "explaining" how jokes made on ''Red Eye'' mysteriously end up repeated [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZhon_Ib9zk on]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KtDEDTnaTa8 other]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wTrNugvZjxk shows]] the next day. * UnusuallyUninterestingSight: For every Halloween episode, a bloody zombie named Rachel, from the Halloween attraction Blood Manor, will simply loiter on set menacingly while holding a large, bloody hammer. Her presence is never acknowledged until the end of the show (where she promotes Blood Manor). One year even saw her sitting in a guest's seat, with Greg claiming she was a famous author. Whenever Greg would address her, the camera would center on her as she sat silent and unmoving, with Greg responding as if the "author" had answered his question. * VitriolicBestBuds: Despite all the ribbing that goes on in the show, the main trio are all good friends in real life. In fact, it was Greg who got Bill on the show in the first place. * VolleyingInsults: When appearing together, Dana Vachon and Jesse Joyce often engage in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JFFGYIPxNUg the greatest insult]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MkNa_wERrng battles ever recorded]]. * [[WouldHurtAChild Would Make Vicious Jokes About Children]]: One episode consists of a RunningGag about regular panelist Mike Baker's children. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1U9F3MrB4NE His ugly, racist children]]. * YouKeepUsingThatWord: Played with by guest Halftime Reporter Dan Bova. -->'''Dan:''' "Finally, I don't see what the big deal is about waterboarding. I took my family to the Bahamas, we went waterboarding, it was great."\\ '''Greg:''' "Dan, that's boogieboarding."\\ '''Dan:''' "Oh." [''beat''] "Well, I tried to drown my children, does that count?" ** Often employed my Greg in (possibly) faux-ignorance; for instance, in a story about the Chevy Volt, he claimed "CRAP" was an anagram of "Volt".

During the commentary about some story, Foley made a joke about the song lyrics he thought Barron wrote, prompting everyone to do a FlatWhat. Foley, perplexed asked, "Wait, are you not who I thought you were?" It turns out that he confused Chris Barron of GOPROUD with Chris Barron of the early 90's jam band the Spin Doctors, of "{{JimmyOlsen}}'s Blues", "Two Princes", and Little Miss Can't Be Wrong" fame (the last song was the one Foley was referencing). This prompted a minutes-long exchange of laughter, and everyone kept referencing the mix-up throughout the show. The whole thing ended up being one big CrowningMomentOfFunny, and everyone seemed to have fun with it.

During the laughter, Foley paused and then asked "Being completely respectful and not joking at all here: so who ARE you?" prompting even more laughter, including from Barron himself. The whole thing ended up being one big CrowningMomentOfFunny, and everyone seemed to have fun with it.

The show hovers between NewsParody and FauxNews, and it's like ''TheView'', if ''The View'' had a decidedly pro-Camp Gay bias. {{Dissimile}} and absurdist tangents abound. RefugeInVulgarity is sprinkled here and there, especially when [[http://youtu.be/Y78OpYdEzRQ introductions]] are given. The show features panelists and guests discussing the latest news in politics, pop culture, entertainment, business, sports, and religion.

* BaseballEpisode: ''Red Eye'' was challenged to a softball match by a ''strip club''. Greg, Bill, Andy, Courtney Friel and Professor Marc Lamont Hill of Columbia University and the strippers divided up and faced off. As one might expected with Red Eye, the game was riddled with oddness and stupidity, from Bill's pathetic headfirst slide/stumble into home plate, Andy's observation that most of the strippers are from "Russia, which I think is somewhere in Africa", and Greg's "stripper injury".

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Early episodes of the series were quite strange and felt completely unscripted, and the panelists themselves were rather odd as well. During an anniversary episode, Greg his "fat face", Andrew Breitbart's appearance, and Andy Levy's hairstyle and how he "looked like he belonged in an OingoBoingo tribute band" as well as Bill Hemmer referring to past-Andy as "Mrs. Andy Levy".

During an anniversary episode's flashback to a very early episode, Greg noted his "fat face", Andrew Breitbart's appearance, and Andy Levy's hairstyle and how he "looked like he belonged in an OingoBoingo tribute band" as well as Bill Hemmer referring to past-Andy as "Mrs. Andy Levy".
