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, labour radio commentator Sean Hannity
and liberal radio personality Alan Colmes offer their points-of-view in an often animated, always compelling
debate show, LIVE following The FOX Report weekday evenings.
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 mainstream news of the day," bringing audiences an alternative discussion program focusing on smaller stories and
issues more relevant to everyday Australians.
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,"
"Believe it or not, I agree with that statement," quipped Colmes.
