Did Jay Leno Steal Raiders Joke From 'Red Eye'?

by Alex Moaba, posted May 31st 2011 5:15PM
The hosts of the late night Fox News political comedy show 'Red Eye' are accusing 'Tonight Show' host Jay Leno and his writing staff of joke-stealing. The joke in question both riffed on a Supreme Court ruling that will force California to release tens of thousands of convicted felons due to prison overcrowding.

'Red Eye's' joke, which Andy Levy told May 24th after reading news of the impending prisoner release, read as follows: "This may actually help the Raiders start selling out their home games again."

Leno's joke, which he told two nights later on May 26th, reacted to the same news with, "But the good news? Looks like the Oakland Raiders will have more season ticket holders." Pretty similar.

Check out the video of both after the jump and tell us if you think Leno ripped off 'Red Eye,' or if they were both just going for obvious punchline and 'Red Eye' got there first.

Penn Teller And Greg Gutfeld Own Up To Bullying Behavior As Kids (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Nov 9th 2010 4:50PM
Due to several high-profile and tragic incidents, bullying has recently taken a prominent place in the national discussion. On 'Red Eye' (weekdays, 3 AM ET on Fox News) Greg Gutfeld argued that when people reflect upon their childhoods they tend to think of themselves as having been bullied, there may be more to the story. Gutfeld himself was both both the victim and the perpetrator of bullying.

"If we were all bullied," Gutfeld wondered, "then where are the bullies? The answer: we're both."

Penn Teller agreed with Gutfeld's theory:

"The thing you said . .. that we're all bullies, and although I never hit anybody . . . I was always very aggressive verbally. And when I Iook back on it, I never saw the bullying as anything verbal . . . and everything I said was absolutely OK."

"I look back on the incredibly cruel things I said, and when I was thinking about this bullying stuff, it was all 'you know, I was beat up a lot . . ."

The bottom line is that most children and adolescents can be pretty horrible to each other at times. This shouldn't excuse bullying, but it's part of what makes it such a complicated problem.

'Red Eye' Discovers Jimmy McMillan Blames High Rent on "The Jews" (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Oct 20th 2010 2:16PM
Like a lot of folks, the 'Red Eye' (weekdays, 3 AM ET on Fox News) gang has been smitten by Jimmy McMillan, the suddenly ubiquitous The Rent is Too Damn High Party candidate for New York governor, who impressed the world with his facial hair and rhythmic speaking style during a televised gubernatorial debate.

Unfortunately, Red Eye's ombudsman Andy Levy rained on the praise parade, by delivering some disturbing news about everybody's new favorite fringe candidate.

"Guess who (McMillan) blames for the fact the rent is too damn high?" Levy asked the panel.

"Oh jeez, I'm scared," said Greg Gutfeld, before correctly guessing "The Jews."

"I was hoping CIA," Bill Schultz quipped, as the panel groaned in disappointment over Levy's revelation.

Levy then explained that material on McMillan's website links Jewish interests to the 9/11 attacks.

Of course, McMillan possibly being an anti-Semite prone to believing wacky conspiracy theories doesn't change the fact that the rent is too damn high.

'Red Eye' Debates Krystal Ball And Double Standards For Attractive Female Politicians (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Oct 18th 2010 3:48PM
Krystal Ball, a long-shot Democratic candidate running for U.S. Congress in Virgina's First District, gained national notoriety after six-year-old pictures of her at a Halloween party simulating fellatio on a sex toy attached to her then-boyfriend's nose surfaced on the Internet.

Over the past week, Ball has been on television addressing the controversy, and arguing that since the nude photo shoot Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown did for Cosmo magazine when he was younger didn't end up hurting his candidacy, in a fair world, her racy photos shouldn't hurt hers.

Picking up on this, the 'Red Eye' (weeknights, 3 AM on Fox News) gang discussed whether attractive female politicians like Ball are held to a higher standard than men or frumpier women politicians.

"I think this helps her . . . " said Monica Crowley. "Of course the issues are important, blah blah blah . . . but seeing this woman scantily-clad doing the little nasty on the sex toy . . . it garners her national attention, she was all over Fox News today, and she is adorable, she looks like Demi Moore."

"I think she's whining," opined Greg Gutfeld. "Attraction cuts both ways, it gets you to places, maybe people think of you less like as an intellectual; You get more out of it than you lose."

Attraction does seem to cut both ways for women (and probably men) in politics, so it's hard to quantify whether it hurts or helps. But there is little doubt that if your parents give you a name like 'Krystal Ball,' you may well have problems getting taken seriously later in life, regardless of what profession you chose to pursue.

Rob Zombie Dishes on David Caruso's Acting Limitations (VIDEO)

Appearing on 'Red Eye' (Weekdays 3 AM ET on Fox News) rocker and auteur Rob Zombie spilled the beans on directing David Caruso in an episode of 'CSI: Miami,' which Zombie called "the longest three weeks of my life."

Red Eye host Greg Gutfeld egged Zombie on, saying he had heard that in terms of taking direction, Caruso can't do two things at once. Zombie paused for a moment, contemplating whether or not to dish on Caruso. But that moment passed quickly, and Zombie proceeded to tell a hilarious story about Caruso's acting limitations:

A.J. Daulerio Explains Why He's Pretty Sure It's Brett Favre's Penis in the Jenn Sterger Texts (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Oct 8th 2010 6:04PM
The sports world is abuzz with allegations that Brett Favre sexually propositioned former New York Jets sideline reporter Jenn Sterger in 2008, sending her voicemails and text messages featuring a photo of his phallus.

A.J. Daulerio, editor-in-chief of the sports blog Deadspin.com broke the sordid tale. He appeared on 'Red Eye' (weekdays, 3 AM ET on Fox News) and explained why he thinks the voicemails and sexts from Favre to Sterger that he posted are the real deal.

"The biggest thing for us was the voicemail messages," Daulerio explained. The area code was a 601 area code, he's from Mississippi, that's a Mississippi area code. It seems like for someone to impersonate him that's a large step to take to get after Jenn Sterger."

Daulerio also pointed out the watch in the penis-pic is very similar to a watch Favre wore during his Green Bay Packer's retirement ceremony.

Seek more information on this story at your own risk, but we can report that both the voice message and photo will make a fellow feel better about what he might have to offer the ladies.

Obama Slams Fox News and 'Red Eye's' Greg Gutfeld Slams Him Back (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Sep 29th 2010 8:30PM
In the latest issue of 'Rolling Stone,' President Barack Obama attacked Fox News, claiming the cable network 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."

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld struck back on 'Red Eye' (weekdays, 3AM ET on Fox News).

"Okay. So, you're the president of the United States, with both houses under your control," Gutfeld explained. "You also have the most fawning press of any president in the history of the universe. And yet you let FNC get under your skin?"

"Obama is like a sports team who owns the ref, the fans and the field," he continued. "But refuses to play until the kid in the 10th row stops chewing gum."

Then Gutfeld advanced the theory that Obama was attacking Fox News as a proxy for the American people, who Obama can't get away with attacking:

"And this is why the Whiner-in-Chief needs us. It provides cover, so Obama can criticize Americans without ever saying 'America.' 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.

Greg Gutfeld Derides Rally to Restore Sanity: 'Appropriate Hipster Response' to the Tea Party (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Sep 22nd 2010 5:13PM
They might both be late-night political satirists who enjoy a grand stunt, but Greg Gutfeld is not on board with Jon Stewart's 'Rally To Restore Sanity,' which Stewart proposed in response to Glenn Beck's 'Rally to Restore Honor.'

Gutfeld made this view clear on his show 'Red Eye' (weekdays, 3 AM ET on Fox News.)

"It's an appropriate hipster response to the tea parties and Glenn Beck's thing," was how Gutfeld characterized the 'Rally to Restore Sanity.'

"Which raises an interesting question: Would Stewart have announced his event if those other events had a decidedly liberal tilt?"

"Short answer: no," was how Gutfeld answered his own question.

Gutfeld then went on to criticize Stewart for mocking people -- like the Tea Party types -- who stand up to political leaders, saying it is proof Stewart is part of the "establishment," and doesn't really speak truth to power.

Porn Watching at The National Science Foundation Gets A Thumbs Up From 'Red Eye'(VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Sep 20th 2010 9:40AM
The gang on 'Red Eye' (weekdays, 3 AM ET on Fox News) tackled a report that Congress is concerned federal employees at the National Science Foundation have been watching porn on the tax payers' dime.

"In one case a former exec who spent at least 331 days looking at illicit websites tried to explain that his online chats with nude lasses helped provide a living to impoverished women overseas," Greg Gufteld explained.

The panel seemed to agree that was at least an interesting excuse for porn-watching, and expressed mostly sympathy for National Science Foundation workers who feel the need to turn to cyber-flesh during work hours.

"Can you blame these guys, science was the most boring subject in high school," quipped comedian Nick Di Paulo.

Then writer John Devore got sort of poetic while making a small government argument:

"Bureaucrats who are watching porn are bureaucrats who can do no harm."

YouTube Sensation Phil Davison Follows Up Unhinged Speech With Unhinged 'Red Eye' Appearance (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Sep 15th 2010 4:28PM
Phil Davison, an Ohio politician whose unhinged, 'Braveheart'-style, plea to be treasurer of Stark County made him a viral sensation, was at it again during an interview on 'Red Eye' (Weekdays, 3 AM ET on Fox News.)

Greg Gutfeld asked Davison if he had a girlfriend, and Davison took this seemingly innocent question in a wacky, somewhat deranged direction.

It turns out Davison's girlfriend wants Davison to become the radical "he always wanted to be." And how is he supposed to do that?

"(I need to) get other radicals into the fold," Davison explained, passion swelling. "Get Roland Martin, Rachel Maddow, Harvey from TMZ, go get Rich Sanchez or Anderson Cooper -- he keeps it real!" Davison screamed, head bobbing all over the place. "James Carville, the raggin' Cajun, come join me, let's have a political revolution!"

Japanese Resort Caters to Men and Their Virtual Girlfriends (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Sep 2nd 2010 6:01PM
In Japan, there is a real brick and mortar resort which caters to men and their virtual girlfriends. The gang at 'Red Eye' (weekdays, 3 AM ET on FOX News) discussed this perplexing development.

"The hotel staff there are actually checking the man and his fictitious flame in as couples," explained host Greg Gutfeld. "And of course there is an iPhone app that allows peoples to take photos of themselves on their vacation and super-impose their 'girlfriends' into their picture".

"I think this story lends the itself to the best T-shirt slogan ever: 'My Girlfriend sits on my hard drive," quipped Brooke Goldstein. "But seriously though, if you can measure your soul-mate in megabytes, what does that say about your soul?"

"This just furthers the fact that I don't understand the Japanese at all," was comedian Jesse Joyce's wise take.

'Red Eye' Declares Jenna Jameson The Key To Peace In The Middle East (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Aug 27th 2010 3:53PM
"Red Eye" (Weeknights, 3 AM ET Fox News) took on an report which suggests the proliferation of pornography in Iraq is a good sign for the future of the embattled nation.

"Apparently porn, in this theory, reflects how security has improved," host Greg Gutfeld explained. "When there's more porn, the world is safer -- I believe that Benjamin Franklin said that." (Ed note: he didn't.)

Singer Andrew WK had a sophisticated take on the theory: "I think that an oppressed and repressed society is going to go through a natural explosion of interest in things that they didn't have access to, and sexuality is an important phase for any culture to move through...We've got to embrace it."

But don't worry, comedian Paul Mecurio kept things lowbrow:

"Who knew that Jenna Jamison would be the key to Middle East peace," he declared. "Isn't this what we fought for, for them to have the freedom so we could objectify women and make money from them the way that true Americans do?"

Dennis Miller Casts Doubt on President Obama's Wizard-Like Intelligence (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Aug 25th 2010 3:28PM
On last night's 'Red Eye' (Weeknights 3 AM ET, on Fox News) host Greg Gutfeld and the gang got to debating just how smart President Obama really is.

"We have the most tone deaf president ever," Gutfeld complained. "He's smart, but he doesn't see that everyone is sick and tired..."

"You're still (using) the precursor 'he's smart,'" right-leaning comedian Dennis Miller injected. "Because I'm starting to wonder. Everybody does that, it's almost reflexive, it's like when they hit your knee with the rubber hammer -- 'He's smart but...'"

"I can't do the reflexive he's a wizard thing anymore" Miller continued. "We're starting to see some really stupid stuff, where if anyone else did this, they'd be Palinized."

Gutfeld agreed that he should probably stop qualifying his criticism of the president with a "he's smart but..."

He then offered an awkward compromise: "I should say he's hot but..."

'Red Eye' Disputes Study That Modern Superheroes Are Bad Role Models (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Aug 17th 2010 3:35PM
Responding to a new study that declared the superheroes of today -- like Iron Man -- encourage boys to be overly-aggressive sexist louts, the gang at 'Red Eye' (Weeknights, 3 AM ET on Fox News) emphatically stood up for the behavior of our current crop of men in tights.

"Their job isn't to be role models but to provide escapist entertainment for teenage boys," host Greg Gutfeld explained. "They are supposed to be tough and crazy and mean and sexist."

Then panelist Lauren Sivan endeared herself to macho-minded guys everywhere with this observation:

"I think more teenage boys should be a little more aggressive" she opined. "I really worry about raising a lot boys to just talk about their feelings -- and they're not going to get dates later in life because girls don't want a guy to come over and braid their hair and watch 'Eat, Pray, Love' They want some that they know can kick some butt when needed."

Something tells us 'Eat, Pray, Love' is going to be the go-to example of a hopeless chick flick for a long, long time.

Greg Gutfeld and Friends Bid Sarcastic Adieu to Comic Strip 'Cathy' (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Aug 14th 2010 2:20PM
In October, the comic strip 'Cathy' will be going dark after almost 34 years. The folks on 'Red Eye' (weeknight, 3 AM ET on Fox News) are more then happy to see it go.

Host Greg Gufteld called Cathy "a constantly depressed character" and "a hopeless harlot."

Then panelist John Moody disclosed that he "would not date a comic book character with only three fingers."

Most cruelly, Gutfeld blasted the two-dimensional spinster for sucking the sexy out of the entire comic strip experience.

"Remember Beetle Baily, the girls were sexy," Gutfeld explained. "Then Cathy came in, and all the sudden they were not sexy."

Kind of makes you want to give old Beetle Baily another look, doesn't it?
