Plus, hear the story of six young girls who were barred from performing at a California holiday festival because they were wearing shirts emblazoned with a silver cross and the words "Jesus Christ" on the front. The "Jesus Christ Dancers," a group of 8-to-12-year-old self-described Christian hip-hop dancers, were told not to dance because organizers did not want to convey a religious message in the show. Is this another attack against Christianity? The group's dance instructor, Lita Ramirez, will be here.

About the Show

Fast-paced and hard-hitting, "Hannity & Colmes" brings viewers a heated discussion in a nightly face-off. Relishing in controversial topics, personalities and social issues, conservative radio commentator Sean Hannity and liberal radio personality Alan Colmes offer their points-of-view in an often animated, always compelling debate.

But, unlike similar debate shows — which often appear scripted — "Hannity & Colmes" conducts a live, spur of the moment deliberation on politics and social topics. Also, differentiating the show is its dedication to "move away from the Beltway," bringing audiences an alternative discussion program without the "in" comments.

Adding fuel to the fire, several high-profile guests have joined the program on a wide-range of topics.

"With guests who are 'in the middle of the fight,' we're able to hear their point-of-view on the topics, as well as advance our own feelings," said Hannity.

"Believe it or not, I agree with that statement," quipped Colmes.
