Debuting in national syndication on October 31, 2005 as a replacement for A Current Affair, the show had been on Fox News Channel in a slightly different format since July 6, 2002 as the program, At Large with Geraldo Rivera.

Rivera has emphasized that the show would be about "people." The program is seen by Rivera as a test for a potential evening newscast produced by the Fox News Channel. The program aired in the time slot normally designated for national news programs in many markets. However, the program is more similar to the show that it replaced, A Current Affair, in its focus on tabloid-type stories.
