Skip to comments.Howard Stern Says Greg Gutfeld Great Replacement for Departing David Letterman
Posted on 04/08/2014 8:25:18 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Howard Stern has made no secret of his affection for Greg Gutfeld.
Stern proclaimed Gutfeld's The Five to be his favorite show earlier this year. Now, the self-proclaimed King of All Media is going a step further with his praise for the Breitbart News contributor and author.
Stern told his listeners earlier today that Gutfeld would make a fine replacement for the departing David Letterman.
That praise doesn't come lightly.
Stern has made his animosity toward fellow late night talker Jay Leno well known...

I like it but it isn’t going to happen.
Gutfeld would never take the job, even if offered. He’s not a comedian....more in the likeness of Will Rogers (simply observing life and its pitfalls).
Greg Gutfeld is way to Conservative for CBS or any of the alphabet networds. Ain’t going to happen.
Gutfeld would deliver massive ratings. However, there’s no way he would allow himself to be fettered and there’s no way the liberal network execs would allow him to have the show unless he was on a very tight leash.
Plus, I would really miss him if he left The Five.
It would be a brilliant move. But it will never happen merely because Gutfeld works for FOXNews. The left would sh*t. I would love to see MSNBC’s reaction.
there is no way... he won’t even be considered...
There’ll be weeping and gnashing of teeth when Gov. Palin becomes the “Oprah” of the right someday.
Ditto! His intelligence and wit is head and shoulders above the Blob...oops...Bob and also Eric.
“It would be a brilliant move. But it will never happen merely because Gutfeld works for FOXNews. The left would sh*t. I would love to see MSNBCs reaction.”
Time for Rupert Murdoch to buy SEEBS, and commence the process of driving all the SP’s out of the media.
Eric is Sean Hannity in a business suit.
The Five is good TV.
Red Eye, OTOH, is stupid and boring.
Eric is Hannity with brains.
It used to be funnier than hell most nights. It’s gone downhill, I’ll agree with you.
That’s what I meant.
Redeye really went to crap lately. I got sick of Andy levy pretending to be a “Libertarian”, when he’s just another knee-jerk (Accent on the “jerk”) leftist. I don’t miss Bill Whatsis, but Andy needs to go.
I like it too... what a great idea.
Hey, a pile of dog turds would make a fine replacement for David Letterman and nobody would even notice Dave’s missing.
I like Andy.
Eric is Hannity with Situational Awareness and zero ego.
I couldn’t stand Andy from day one.
God has much bigger things in store for Governor Sarah Palin. Although I don't pretend to know His Will, it's indeed quite plausible that Palin will serve as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court after she completes her two terms as President.
Mustn’t one be a lawyer to serve in that capacity?
I like them both but sometimes I squirm in my seat watching their ineptitude, not aware of so many facts, and poor responses to liberal taking points.
Governor Palin has something that far too many lawyers lack: wisdom. Plus, the SCOTUS is in desperate need of Constitutional common sense.
He is one of the few military veterans that I’m aware of on television.
I’d rather see Red Eye get the nightly 11PM slot on Fox News Channel.
I agree with all that, but the Senate isn’t going to confirm a non-attorney for that position. The days of clerking and then becoming a lawyer are long since gone.
Nope. While SCOTUS justices have traditionally had law degrees, there is no such requirement in the constitution
I think they would have to change it to the Red Eye format. And I’m talking about the old Red Eye format before they moved Andy Levy to the panel and gave Bill Schulz the boot. If they brought Greg in as host, TV’s Andy Levy as the ombudsman, and brought back Bill Schulz as the sidekick, that would be awesome!
Eric is Hannity with brains.
...AND with intellectual honesty and integrity. He digs down to the essence of problems.
Yup, Redeye has been rolling downhill. Heck I even miss Bill Shultz. I wonder what happened there...
I’ve known a few local TV people. When your personal ratings go down even a bit, you’re gone.
I’m so glad to see Letterman leaving. CBS usually has the better 10:00 shows, and I’d let it run through the local news until I hear some disgusting, dishonest insult of Sarah Palin or another honorable conservative. Then switch to Leno, still liberal, but more balanced and less insulting. Among the Jimmys, I think I prefer Kimmel to Fallon. At least Kimmel is not followed by Seth Myers.
I’d welcome Gutfeld or even a toned-down Howard Stern in the Letterman spot. But hey, how about Dennis Miller? He’s got TV and talk-show interview experience.
As long as he could still shoot animals he might do it.
"Red Eye" is one of the very few shows on my "MUST WATCH!" list! (I DVR it every night to watch while I'm getting dressed before work, or when I get home from work - I do sort of miss Bill Shulz even though JoNo ROCKS!).
NAh.. the commies KNOW who the other commies are...
AND are Not..
How can you get rid of “TV’s Andy Levy?”
I do have to say I liked him better as the “ombundsman,” rather than a full time panelist.
I really used to enjoy S.E. Cupp (I guess once she signed a contract with msnbc she became persona non-grata at Fox), and Mike Baker is always a hoot. But I really LOVE Gavin McIness, he’s hilarious!
But you can’t get rid of Andy Levy!
I really liked Letterman when he first stated his show. He was really funny, and pretty darned inventive.
But that was 25 or 30 years ago, I think... He grew long in the tooth, then all his teeth fell out. He hasn't been funny since long before he moved to CBS.
“...will CBS give a conservative that big a megaphone?”
They’d sooner resurrect that way over the hill Rosie O’Donnell before they’d put a conservative who’s actually funny, like Gutfeld, on their network.
Couldn’t stand Bill Schultz. JoNo is a huge improvement.
Still watch Redeye. Like it more now.
Indeed there aren't very many. The only ones that come to mind are Montel Williams, Charles Osgood, Steve Kroft and Bob Schieffer. Unfortunately, all of them are leftists but most were desk jockeys and REMFs (like Al Gore). I'm sure there are good Conservative radio and television commentators that were in the service. Even so, Patriots such as Rush Limbaugh, Ted Nugent and Mark Levin have done so much for our Brave Troops and America.
...just thought of one as I was ready to hit post: Oliver North, a solid Conservative with a fine documentary, "War Stories".
Levy is an alumnus of Smithtown High School East in Smithtown, New York, the same high school Soledad O’Brien attended. He also graduated from Columbia University with a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science. He is a veteran of the U.S. Army (he served as a 31K Combat Signaler); his first permanent duty station was on the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) in Korea in the 5th Battalion, 20th Infantry Regiment, part of the 2nd Infantry Division. He also served in the 4th Battalion, 7th Air Defense Artillery Regiment at Fort Bliss, Texas.
Just thought of a few others — some are not currently active on television but were not too long ago: Chuck Norris, Drew Carey, Rob Riggle (Daily Show), Dennis Franz (NYPD Blue and Goodbye Earl video) and Tom Selleck. There are more Conservatives in that list than in the initial post.
Eric is Hannity with some brains.
come on Eric has the exact same sized ego. The only difference is Eric doesn’t have his own football like Hannity does.
heck no that show is just idiotic. I’d rather watch a Greta rerun than that redeye crap.
Notice I said I wanted Redeye in the 11PM slot.
That knocks out O’Reilly reruns which will improve Fox News Channel immensely.
Actually you could replace O’Reilly live and reruns with Sham-Wow Infomercials and it would still be a benefit to mankind.
if I had to pick between Gutfeld and O’Reily I’d still pick O’Reily. Gutfeld is just too goofy and is never serious. RedEye is just a Fox version of Colbert Report or the Daily Show and I just don’t find those types of shows funny or entertaining. It seems those shows are geared for teens/early 20somethings with the sophomoric/immature humor.
Hell, Gutfeld doesn't even take himself seriously half the time. He'd probably be fun to have a beer with.
O'Reilly, on the other hand, is a self-consumed no-it-all who must be a pain in the butt to be around for any length of time.
If I was picking a next door neighbor from those two, it would be Gutfeld hands down.
