Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld is, in my refined and sophisticated opinion, one of the best and most underrated programs on television. The in-jokes, ironically formulaic production, and all-over surreal quality are simply perfect at 3 a.m., plus the Gregalogue is consistently profound yet snarky. They’ve even had some really good guests lately, like John Bolton, Thaddeus McCotter, and Oderus Urungus from GWAR via satellite from space (of course).
David Shuster, on the other hand, is an annoying little troll. He constantly talks over his guests to the extent that nothing gets said (or heard) and Bill O’Reilly is a fantastic interviewer by contrast. Hearing his voice also feels like what I imagine it would feel like being mildly tasered. It’s painful in a dull, but sickening way. There is something truly, deeply wrong with any network which gives that voice an hour five days a week. That’s Mitch Albom’s old time slot. Sure, his show was also awful, but at least he had a soothing voice.
So I’m quite objective.
Anyway, Shuster appeared on Red Eye Robot Theater (my favorite, which I often think about posting here but then decide it’s just too weird and creepy). Then he wrote in to thank Red Eye for featuring him, so showed up in Red Eye Robot Theater again.
I love Red Eye Robot Shuster and it turns out that real-life David Shuster isn’t annoying at all in written thank you notes. Way to go, Red Eye. I never thought would be a Shuster fan, but I guess I sort of am now.
