Tonight on The Independents: Confessions of an FCC Commissioner, Woman Forced to Live on the Grid, Appreciation of Harold Ramis, Plus Alec Baldwin, Army Shrinkage, Jason Collins, Taco Waffles, El Chapo, Racism Penalties, and After-Show


The Olympics are over, kids (so is would-be 9 o'clock rival Piers Morgan, shhhh!!!), so it's time to get serious about your viewing, commenting, sharing, and recommending of The Independents on Fox Business Network.

Tonight's live at 9 pm ET, 6 pm PT (with repeats three hours later), features indie filmmaker and all-around hooligan Gavin McInnes teaming up with comedian Sherrod Small to provide panelisty goodness on the following topics: Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel proposing to shrink the Army down to pre-1941 levels, journeyman center Jason Collins becoming the first openly gay athlete to play in one of America's four major professional sports, the advent of the three-way embryo, the arrest of Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán, the public implosion of Alec Baldwin, and the NFL's proposed 15-yard penalty for using the N-word on the playing field.

Former Federal Communications Commissioner Robert McDowell will be on to talk about the FCC's now-cancelled newsroom study, and hopefully also the latest goings on with Netflix. We will also talk to freedom fighter Robin Speronis, who has been told by Cape Coral, Florida authorities that she has one month to plug into the grid, or else face consequences. The Topical Storm segment may or may not include the dreaded taco waffle, the Royal Family's secret veto power, and milk propaganda.

Send your tweets to @IndependentsFBN throughout, hashtag 'em #indFBN, and remember to stay tuned for the sexy online-only after show, streamed on the show website a tick or two after 10 pm.
