I wonder if he will go to work for the O regime?
I sincerely doubt it. Bill is a comedian who played the role of presenting the left's view. He is no kool-aid drinker, and enjoyed mocking the left just as much as he enjoyed mocking the right. Red Eye has had a significant drop off with him gone these last few weeks. Actually, it started when Greg moved Andy Levy (who is never funny and needs to lose his annoying habit of constantly staring at the camera) on to the table. He seems like a nice guy but he is hurting the show. If someone involved with the show reads the thread I need to be honest and say that I have loved Red Eye since 2002 but I probably won't watch as much unless you work very hard at finding a good replacement for Bill. And I know it won't be easy. I know this is a tough call since Andy was the one who discovered Greg, but, Andy, you are not the talent and you are hurting the show.
I never got that Bill was "playing" a lefty. I always knew he was only playing along with Greg's jokes about being homeless, or smelling bad, or being a hermaphrodite; but that when he started on the lib talking points I assumed that was really him.
“I know this is a tough call since Andy was the one who discovered Greg, but, Andy, you are not the talent and you are hurting the show.”
I don’t share your feelings about Andy being detrimental in
any way to the show. He too has a good sense of humor and is very quick; his humor is just of a different sort than Bill’s is, and I’m not sure it’s fair to make a comparison between the two. They bring different viewpoints to the show. Andy is basically a Libertarian, whereas as Bill was more of a leftist. Andy is a deeper thinker on issues and therefore is a bit darker in commentary; Bill was more flight of fantasy and a free thinker, quick on the draw with the witticisms.
Andy, I might add, was in the military, and that makes me automatically fond of him. I think Andy will do just fine over time, as he acclimates himself to his new position on the show. I wonder if the show will now hire someone to replace Andy’s old job doing the halftime show, etc. And I wonder if we will ever find out the real story as to why Bill left the show.
