Fox Business Network is live until 10 p.m. tonight. The network will air a special two-hour edition of “Lou Dobbs Tonight” from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.; that program will be bookended by “Cavuto” (anchored tonight by Charles Payne) at 6 p.m. and “America’s Nightly Scoreboard” with David Asman at 9 p.m. FBN will also be live at 5 a.m. tomorrow morning for an hour-long market special anchored by Ashley Webster and simulcast on Fox News Channel.

Bloomberg TV’s Adam Johnson and Lisa Murphy will co-host a special report at 8 p.m. called “Crisis of Confidence,” which will focus on the Fed’s actions this week and their impact on the global markets.
