The fourth Republican debate will air at 9 pm Eastern tonight on the Fox Business Network. But don’t worry, if you don’t have cable, you can still tune in — Fox Business will generously post an online livestream for all at FoxBusiness.com. This is in contrast to recent debate hosts CNN and CNBC, who restricted their livestreams to people with cable accounts.

Tonight’s event will be the least crowded GOP debate yet — there will only be eight candidates on the primetime stage. Donald Trump and Ben Carson are neck and neck for the poll lead, so they’ll be center stage. Then, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, who got poll bounces after being declared the winners of the last debate, are currently in third and fourth. Jeb Bush, whose campaign has not been going well lately, is down in the fifth place spot. And rounding out the lineup are Carly Fiorina (who’s lost most of the poll bounce she got from previous debate performances), John Kasich, and Rand Paul.

Meanwhile, the earlier undercard debate, with candidates who aren’t polling as well, will begin at 7 pm Eastern. The recent undercard debates have generally been unmemorable, but this one has a different lineup: Mike Huckabee, Chris Christie, Bobby Jindal, and Rick Santorum. Huckabee and Christie will be in the undercard for the first time after failing to meet the polling cutoff for the primetime event. And usual undercard participants Lindsey Graham and George Pataki have been dropped for failing to reach 1 percent in any of the four most recent national polls — they’ll join Jim Gilmore in no-man’s-land.

At the main event, definitely expect some fireworks. Donald Trump clearly seems quite nervous about Ben Carson’s recent polling strength — each has been leading a few recent polls — and has been getting very nasty on Twitter about Carson. But a face to face confrontation against Carson, who’s extremely well-liked among the Republican electorate, could be risky, as Jeb Bush found out when he tried to take on Rubio during the last debate two weeks ago. Bush’s campaign has been in very bad shape since, and another bad performance tonight risks exacerbating the recent movement of establishment support to Rubio.

If you should happen to miss this one, the next Republican debate won’t happen for nearly a month — until December 15, which will be just a month and a half before the Iowa caucuses. However, you could also tune in for the next Democratic debate this Saturday, November 14.
