Tonight ... "The O'Reilly Factor" is on...

More than 22,000 people are reported dead around southern Asia and as far away as Somalia (search) on Africa's eastern coast, most killed by massive waves that smashed coastlines after a magnitude 9.0 earthquake off Indonesia's coast on Sunday, followed by aftershocks in the region.

Could an early alert system have saved lives in the region?

Also, with millions now homeless and a lack of electricity and running water how will the world handle a massive humanitarian crisis?

Plus, what caused the terrible waves that left thousands dead and millions homeless in an instant? And, could anything like this happen here? We'll speak with an expert.

Then, as "The Factor" moves along... we'll examine the woes of weary holiday travelers in this country who are still facing lost luggage and lost plans for a Christmas getaway after winter storms in the Midwest, a "sick out" by workers for USAirways and a massive computer problem at ComAir. What can passengers expect from the travel industry? Anything?

These stories and much more tonight on "The O'Reilly Factor!"

About the Show

"Other interview news shows are guest-driven," says Emmy award-winning broadcast journalist Bill O'Reilly. "'The O'Reilly Factor' is driven by me. I will not stand for 'spin.' I look for guests who will stand up and verbally battle for what they believe in."

"The O'Reilly Factor" uncovers news items from the established wisdom and goes against the grain of the more traditional interview-style programs. O'Reilly's signature "No Spin Zone" cuts through the rhetoric as he interviews the players who make the story newsworthy.

Pushing beyond just the headlines, "The O'Reilly Factor" also features issues from local markets that do not find the national spotlight on other newscasts. According to O'Reilly, "Just because a story originates from somewhere the networks typically avoid, doesn't mean it contains less challenging issues, or compelling ideas."
