    Nice to see @GregGutfeld finally getting some credit! Amy owes alot to Greg and “Red Eye”.

    She was nothing after Last Comic Standing. She didn’t stand out on the
    show. The other 3 who beat her about, pretty much nobody in the US have
    heard of. It’s also not like the show was doing bang up ratings. 4
    1/2M average.

    Pathetic, Amy wouldn’t even go on Greg’s new “Greg Gutfeld
    Show” after its debut. It’s not like “Inside Amy Shumer” was doing
    anything in the ratings. Her last show before the premiere of “Greg Gutfeld Show” did 680,000 viewers. Obviously, she was far too big of a star to appear on #GUTFELD with those numbers.

    I don’t even remember if she even came on #RedEye to promote Season 1 or Season 2.

    If they wanted to mention her other “big break”, it would have been the guy she was having sex with. Anthony Jeselnik. She’s dating him. He’d been on the dais of the Comedy Central Roasts. She ends up on there during Charlie Sheen Roast. Seth McFarland didn’t even have any clue who she is….

    Still don’t understand all the good reviews for “Trainwreck”. When I finally saw it, I was disappointed big time. Hardly laughed at all. Apatow’s best work by far was on “The Larry Sanders Show”. His movies are hit & miss.

      Why is it important to bring up someone’s sex life? It is crude and beneath what we usually expect here. This isn’t Newsbusters, after all.

      • I can’t imagine her ever returning to Red Eye, appearing on The Greg Gutfeld Show, or showing up on any FNC or FBN show ever again. The same goes for her cousin, who will probably be Senate Majority Leader a year from now, and who she’s aligned with politically (i.e. gun control).

        • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

          I don’t agree with her politics, but, boy is she cute.

          • I agree. The same can be said about Whitney Cummings, Jen Kirkman, and several other left-leaning comediennes whose names escape me.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            Unless their politics get really odious or creeps into their routines, I tend to ignore it.

          • Kirkman’s Netflix special had a few political positions thrown in, but was otherwise fine. Cummings has bashed FNC (in a roast) and called Pat Sajak a racist (on [at]Midnight).

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            To be honest, I never heard of Kirkman or Cummings. I had to look them up, they still don’t ring a bell. I guess that I am really showing my age.

            I must be too. Never heard of either.

    • Larry Kelly

      A great hero of America children besmirched? Who besides Arab propagandists or Washngton Post semi-commies who strive to believe.

    • Michael T

      My impression as well Mike. Or at a minimum, he’s skeptical (as are many others) of Peyton’s denial.

      I watched a lot of coverage yesterday — mostly ESPN, but also The Five, who I thought did a decent segment looking at both sides of the controversy.

      Some of the narratives throughout the media were:
      • Peyton’s long history of integrity makes it difficult for many to believe that he used HGH.
      • Many other athlete’s with firm denials (e.g., Barry Bonds and Lance Armstrong) were later found to be lying and this affected the ability of some to not be skeptical about Peyton’ strong denial.
      • Some — including Brian Kilmeade – joked that Charles Sly’s video recanting everything he said made him look like he was in a coerced Middle Eastern hostage video.
      • Many — including Kirsten Powers — were curious why Peyton won’t say more about the meds that were reported as being mailed to his wife. For example, if it was not HGH, why not say so? OTOH, if it was HGH, was it for one one of the handful of conditions for which HGH can be legally prescribed?
      • I think it was Katherine Timpf who mentioned that Manning was getting soft treatment on ESPN ‘all day long’ and complained (paraphrasing), “Why wasn’t Tom Brady treated this well when his scandal first broke?”
      • Finally, perhaps the most discussion was about the owner of the clinic saying Charles Sly did not intern there in 2011 — yet when Al Jazeera spoke to someone in HR, she was told (on a recording) that Charles Sly was there in 2011. smh

      The saga continues…with more questions raised than answered about a beloved athlete and person by all accounts.

      • Steve Somers of WFAN also seems to believe the accusations, based on the tone of his monologue.

  • Gregg Jarrett did three hours yesterday and assuming he subs for Shep will be doing three hours today as well. He looks to me like he’s back on his game which is a good thing. Like Megyn Kelly he can double as a legal analyst and he’s A-1 in that respect as well.

      • Are you mocking a news anchor on tv? How dare you! In the future please confine your mocking to Megyn Kelly and Harris Faulkner (with bonus points if you simultaneously pretend to be a defender of women). [/sarcasm]

          Being a moral lightweight always causes folks to be an intellectual one too.

          • Larry Kelly

            With a preverted pun, no less.

        relapse is part of recovery.

        • Cecelia

          gc, I have a favorite pitcher I know little about and haven’t gotten around to finding out.

          I’m going to tweet a pic and if you can tell me anything about it, please do.

          • gc

            i rarely use twitter so tell me here when you do. if it is glass i will know what it is. without saying anything i would guess eapg (early american pattern glass)molded 30’s to 50’s. because that is when your mom got presents and your grandparents put stuff away.

          • Cecelia

            It’s there. Two pics.

          • Cecelia

            No, it’s not. Tweet info if you know, so Johnny won’t lose patience.

          • I won’t. I’m not Dr Kevorkian you know.

          • Cecelia

            That’s not what we’ve heard…

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            Ah, Jack the Dripper.

          • gc

            is it glass or ceramic? i need the bottom. looks asian porcelain which i know nothing about. if it is Asian and porcelain google that with the a description of the deco. add reeded thorn handle.

          • Cecelia

            It’s porcelain, but not thin. Fairly heavy in wt.

          • gc

            well in 15 mins of perusal i was able to find out what it is not. first the list of what she has above is all 20th century so we assume same. besides the mark on the bottom it is not Royal Worcester or Haviland as they were light to the point of being brittle, however they are known for the type of handle you have. i did not google Japan, i did Chinese and Asian both of which came blank for that mold. the 20th century saw lots of knock off imported good. asian, japan, would make a worcester like pitcher and sell them in the USA for example. the molds are expensive, so when looking do not pay attention to the deco, look for the shape.

          • Cecelia

            Ok, thanks. If you’re finished I’ll delete pics.

          • gc

            i am googling wait.

          • Cecelia

            Me too. Not a thing like it. It was my mother’s.

            It’s a beaut.

          • gc

            she got it somewhere which means it can be IDed. patience greasshopper

          • Cecelia

            She had a lot of majolica, some with Asian-esque references. Limoges, French Haviland, and American pottery such as McCoy and Hull.

          • Cecelia

            My husband is starving and wants to go out. I’ll leave pics up.
            Thanks for your time.

          • gc

            with the asian letter on the bottom you would think chinese. how handles are made is often a clue to who made it as that tends to be part of their branding.

            painted and fired, not decals as i see no wear.
            even if i know nothing about the genre i know how to search
