    Forget the 24 hour biased left wing news media, the best fake news show in the world will provide you with all the news you can handle. The Daily Show is a comedic view of recent news headlines and political figures through a series of satirical monologues by Jon Stewart along with segments by "correspondents" and finally interviews with guest celebrities and political figures. Craig Kilborn (SportsCenter) was the original host until the fourth season when Jon Stewart (The Jon Stewart Show) came in to take over after Kilborn left for CBS. The Daily Show has won multiple Emmy's and other prestigious awards such as the Peabody Award. It airs Mondays-Thursdays at 11pm ET on Comedy Central.

    On January 14 1952, The Today Show, a long running morning news program on NBC, went on the air. It aired at 7:00 A.M. (Eastern Time) as a 2-hour news and information show. For many years it was a 2-hour program from 7:00 to 9:00 ET, until NBC expanded it to 3 hours (7-10 A.M. Eastern Time) on October 2, 2000. On September 10, 2007 a fourth hour was added to the show. Today was the first of its genre when it first signed on with host Dave Garroway. The show successfully blends national news headlines, in-depth interviews with newsmakers, lifestyle features, other light news and gimmicks (including the presence of the chimpanzee J. Fred Muggs as the show's mascot during the early years), and local news updates. It has spawned several other shows of a similar type, including ABC's Good Morning America, CBS's The Early Show, and the Canadian series, Canada AM. The show is filmed and produced at studio 1A in Rockefeller Center, New York, just across the street from NBC headquarters at the GE Building. The studio is located right next to the street and many times the hosts do the weather or other events from outside. Today was the brainchild of Pat Weaver, who was then vice-president of NBC. Later, he became president of the company from 1953 to 1955, and then served as chairman of the board for another year. The show is currently hosted by Meredith Viera and Matt Lauer. Al Roker does weather updates and Ann Curry reads news headlines. Gene Shalit is the entertainment critic. Previous hosts have included Bryant Gumbel, Jane Pauley, Deborah Norville, Tom Brokaw, Barbara Walters, Hugh Downs, and Flyod Kalber. Popular former weathercaster Willard Scott still appears on the show daily doing the 100th birthday announcements he first became famous for in the 1980s.moreless

    Welcome to the Good Morning America program. For ABC, this was a much more successful morning news series than A.M. America, which had lasted the first ten months of 1975. ABC looked at one of its affiliates, WEWS in Cleveland, and admired the station's very successful news/talk series called The Morning Exchange (1972-1999). Network programming president Fred Silverman oversaw ABC's using The Morning Exchange as a model for their new program. Today the show is anchored by Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos. Ginger Zee gives weather reports throughout the morning, Amy Robach does the news, and Lara Spencer does the lifestyle reports. The show is usally in a battle for #1 with rival morning news show "Today" START YOUR DAY GOOD TO GO!moreless

    Among the most recognized and revered television newsmagazines, 20/20 was ABC's answer to CBS's 60 Minutes. Though some stories were humorous, light-hearted and sometimes frivolous features, the meat of "20/20's" programming was investigative reporting many times exposing corporate, medical, educational and governmental wrongdoing, incompetence and criminal negligence and reports on news events of the week from (often) different angles than was seen on the nightly news. Though most of the reports proved to be factual, some were heralded as sensationalist; others led to allegations of libel while at least one story later proved to be an embarrassing hoax. The show's current co-anchors are John Stossel and Elizabeth Vargas.moreless

    Follow
    FOX News Channel
    The New York Times said of "Red Eye" that, "Dark Humor Meets the Camera Lights." The show is officially titled "Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld" and is set up as a discussion group akin to "The McLaughlin Group." The similarity ends there. On this late night show, the outrageous and outspoken gather with Greg Gutfeld to discuss the news and the hottest topics of the day. Among the regular panelists are recurring guests Bill Shultz, Kevin Godlington, Will Durst, and Rachel Marsden. Greg Gutfeld's mother 82 year-old serves as "Senior Correspondent" and phones in her reviews from California with the senior citizen perspective. Andrew Levy serves as Ombudsman and Futurist. In the former role, Levy critiques the reviewers at the half hour; in the latter role, he predicts tomorrow's big stories.

    Fox News Channel host choice, Greg Gutfeld, was a veteran of Dennis Publishing, edited the U.K. edition of Maxim from 2004-2006, and edited Stuff magazine before hosting "Red Eye." Gutfeld has been a blogger on the Huffington Post, and has his own blog, "The Daily Gut," which he runs with former Dennis Publishing editorial director, Andy Clerkson. The New York Times described Greg as "a compact but enormously animated man ... 'a drugged-up turtle' ... known for injecting his dark, absurdest humor into a series of magazines he edited. ..." and "... stood out like a drunk who crashes a cocktail party." He leads a full-time staff of eight. There are no writers on a this show stated to be not "incredibly well financed."

    In addition to his role as host, Gutfeld adds a bizarre sense of humor with his drawings of unicorns and a cat that represent the days stories. The drawings are forwarded to the viewer with the best comment for the episode.

    Rachel Marsden is a columnist for The Toronto Sun.

    Fox News contributor Bill Schulz is a friend of Mr. Gutfeld's from their days at Stuff Magazine.

    Andrew Levy is former publicist for the Directors Guild of America.

    As for the cast, John Moody, an executive vice president at Fox News, said, "It's sort of like making a sandwich late at night. You just grab what's in the fridge and put it all together."

    Fox stated early on that "Red Eye" will "react to the news of the moment with lively discussion in an unscripted fashion." It has. "Red Eye" was one of two recent initiatives "to broaden the definition of a news channel." "24" writer-producer, Joel Surnow's, "The Half-Hour News Hour" was the other. Both were picked up after successful initial pilot runs. In March 2007, "Red Eye" averaged 309,000 viewers for the time slot. These numbers beat MSNBC's crime programing and CNN's reruns of "Anderson Cooper 360" in that time slot. Thus "Red Eye" successfully replaced a repeat of "The Fox Report" with Shepard Smith.

    The show was envisioned in the summer of 2006 by Mr. Moody and Roger Ailes, the chairman of Fox News. It was designed "to fill that unexploited time slot with something aimed at 20- and 30-somethings. Scott Norvell, the network's London bureau chief, suggested Greg Gutfeld, who was living in London at the time and working on a book, as a possible host."

    "Red Eye" gives a wacky view of the news that "Slate," the on-line magazine, "called it the most bizarre hour of programming on any major news channel."moreless
