Red Eye - Last Show

Ten years ago, Red Eye brightened the late, late night TV landscape.

It ended on Friday. The show's cancellation was incredibly abrupt. In an era of year-long retirement goodbyes (Jay Leno, David Letterman, Jon Stewart) and endlessly hyped final seasons of long-running shows, this was a sort of cruel move by FOX News. It's as if they didn't want to deal with the response from Red Eye fans.

I guess it's fitting. The show came out of nowhere and it leaves the same way.

Nothing can replace Red Eye.
