Topics and Guests for September 12

Watch "The Big Story" weekdays at 5 p.m. ET

Though 50 percent of New Orleans remains flooded and teams are still working to recover the dead, progress is being made two weeks after Hurricane Katrina ravaged the Crescent City. Team FOX is live with the latest.

Then, hundreds of thousands of evacuees might never return to New Orleans and may make Republican states, like Texas, their permanent home. Could Hurricane Katrina shift our political landscape? We'll get a fair and balanced debate from Democratic consultant Julian Epstein and Republican strategist Terry Holt.

Senate confirmation hearings for Judge John Roberts are under way. The hearings are expected to last four to five days and most on Capitol Hill expect Roberts will win confirmation to be the nation's 17th chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. We'll get the latest from FOX News congressional correspondent Brian Wilson.

A tape delivered to ABC News in Pakistan over the weekend features a masked man making terrorist threats against Los Angeles and Australia. How credible are these threats? We'll get insight from Peter Lance, author of "Cover Up."

And, the Carolinas are keeping a close eye on Tropical Storm Ophelia. So what precautions are people in the possible path of the storm taking? We'll ask John Legare, spokesperson for the South Carolina Office of Emergency Management.

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