    Default Anyone Seen This New Primetime Show on Fox Business Channel?

    https://www.facebook.com/#!/IndependentsFBN

    "The Independents" airs at 9pm EST on Fox Business (not to be confused with Fox News).

    Really like their slogan, "No political party, no problem".

    With over 73% of the population dissatisfied with both political parties, I'd say a show like this is long overdue.

    Independents will become, "The New Normal".

    I have and I like it. The like the co-hosts and Kennedy is quirky but growing on me. I have seen 4 or 5, and recently started recording it. I like I better than Stossel, whose arguments are too simplistic at times and his delivery is a bit whiney. We'll see if it lasts.

    The Independents are on every night except Thursdays in Stossel's time slot. I understand your feeling about his show but don't forget that he broke a lot of ground for Libertarians and was kind of a voice in the wilderness prior to the popularity of his show. We wouldn't have The Independents had it not been for Stossel's show demonstrating the need for other voices.

    So Franco, I'm watching Fox Business as I type this. Is there really a difference from Fox News? They both seem whiney and complainey to an offensive degree.

    Really, Ice storms caused the delay of X-mas deliverlies......Imagine that? JD

    Huge difference between the two. Fox is not trying to split an audience among the two as much as cater to two different audiences.

    Fox News caters to the far right. Fox Business at night caters more to Libertarians and Independents.

    Maybe you should watch more before judging and all major news sources today covered the delays in shipping in their News segments. The hosted talk shows are as different as day from night.

    News Segments, this is where they cover the day's News.
    Talk segemnts, this is where host cover topics of interest.

    Have you even watched, "The Independents"?

    I didn't think so.

    No, I was critizing Fox and I have watched both FN and FB. I'll watch the show next time it airs. Which if the website schedule is correct would be 7PM MST tonight.

    Well, I hope you enjoy it.

    BTW, I don't waste my time on Fox News.

    Hey Booty, I just watched your favorite news show. What can I say....?

    1. A fox is a fox is a fox. They may all suffer from Chastek.

    2. What makes a good show is the degree to which it reflects what we want to hear.

    3. If I am tempted to watch again, please come and remove the icepick....!!!!

    4. The girl with squeaky voice in the polka dot dress and the bangle earings was a challenge, but I watched the whole thing.

    5. I think I should eat some dinner and kill some ducks in the AM...jknow...???
