Here's what is on tap for Thursday:

"FOX & Friends First"
Starts at 6 a.m. ET

Abu Farraj al-Libbi, believed to be Usama bin Laden's No. 3 man, was arrested for, among other things, his involvement in potential attacks against U.S. interests. So, what does his capture mean? We'll ask Ed Turzanski, national security expert and senior fellow at the Foreign Policy Research Institute.

Then, in 1995 firefighter Donald Herbert (search) suffered brain damage after a burning roof collapsed on top of him. This past weekend, 10 years later, he "woke up" and requested to speak with his wife. Is he expected to make a full recovery? Ret. Lt. Patrick Coghlan (search), Donald's lieutenant at the time of the accident, weighs in.

And, Thursday is National Day of Prayer. Joanne Redmond, author of "Say a Little Prayer," tells us how we can improve our connection with our Creator.

"FOX & Friends"

ABC aired its "explosive expose" on "American Idol" Wednesday night. So, will it impact "Idol's" ratings? Nigel Hawthorne, executive producer of "American Idol," speaks out.

Then, Tom O'Neil, senior editor of In Touch Weekly, weighs in on the controversial ABC special.

Next, there's more controversy surrounding the runaway bride story. Could someone have wired Jennifer Wilbanks (search) money to help in her cross-country sprint? Lydia Sartain, Wilbanks' attorney, responds.

And, Texas House approved a bill banning "sexually suggestive" cheerleading. But, is this a state issue? Democratic Rep. Al Edwards, the man behind the bill, weighs in.

Plus, do unattractive kids get less attention from their parents? That's what a new study suggests! We'll get the lowdown from Dr. Andrew Harrell, lead researcher of the study conducted at The University of Alberta in Canada.

Real journalism: fair and balanced. That's why we're No. 1 — FOX News Channel.
