The fight is on as the Senate takes up the fight over President Bush's judicial nominees (search). Could today's debate in the Senate lead to a vote on the so-called nuclear option? We'll ask Kay Bailey Hutchison (search), Republican senator from Texas and Byron Dorgan (search), Democratic senator from North Dakota.

Newsweek retracts that story that caused deadly protests in the Muslim world, but lots of critics are saying the damage is done. We'll talk to four-time presidential advisor David Gergen about what can be done next.

And a desperate search for two children, who are missing from their home in Idaho where police found three people brutally murdered. Robert Roy Lutner (search) is a person of interest in the case, but who is he? And can he lead them to the children? We’ll investigate.

Plus, President Bush swears in the new intelligence czar (search). We’ll tell you about this important position and how it might change the way the War on Terror is fought.

And then, a FOX first — we’ll put together a panel of people all fired from "The Apprentice" to share their predictions for the season finale. You won’t want to miss it!
