Below are two videos. The first one is the full prime time Republican debate and the second one is the full lower tier debate.
The next Republican debate happens on January 14, 2016. It will be hosted by the Fox Business Network. There will be a prime time debate and a undercard debate. The prime time debate will be at 9:00 pm eastern time and the undercard debate will be at 6:00 pm eastern time. The moderators for the prime time debate will be Neil Cavuto and Marie Bartiromo. The moderators for the under card debate will be Trish Regan and Sandra Smith.
The following are the requirements a candidate must meet to be on the debate stage in either debate.
The debates will factor in both national polls, as well as those based in Iowa and New Hampshire conducted and released prior to Monday, January 11 at 6 p.m. ET. The primetime debate will feature candidates that place in the top six nationally, and place within the top five in Iowa or New Hampshire, while the remaining candidates will be invited to the early debate.
The month of January will feature two Republican Presidential Debates.
The first Republican debate will be held on January 14, 2016. The debate will be showed on Fox Business Network. The sponsors for the debate are the Fox Business Network and The Wall Street Journal. The location of the debate will be in North Charleston, South Carolina. As of right now the moderators have not been announced. The candidates that will be participating in this debate have also not been announced yet but the criteria for the debate has been released. The prime time debate will include the top six candidates based on the average of the five most recent national polls. You can also qualify for the prime time debate by being in the top five in Iowa or New Hampshire.
The second Republican debate in January will be held on January 28, 2016. The debate will be showed on the Fox News Channel. The sponsor of the debate is Fox News. The moderators for this debate will be Bret Baier, Megyn Kelly and Chris Wallace. They also moderated the first 2016 Republican debate back in August. The location of the debate is in Iowa. The criteria for the debate has yet to be announced. Whats special about this debate is its the last debate before the Iowa Caucus which will be held on February 1, 2016.
Based on the debate criteria released by Fox Business for the upcoming debate on January 14, 2016, Rand Paul would be excluded from the main stage because he does not meet the requirements. Rand Paul says the only debate he would want to participate in is the main debate not the undercard debate. Senator Paul said, “It’s the kids’ table, and at that table you’re not considered to be a competitor, not considered to be having a chance."
The following was taken from Politico:
Paul maintained he could make the big stage. He's just 0.3 points below the criteria, he said, and it would be illogical to exclude someone who's within the margin of error. “But, frankly, if we beat Chris Christie by 0.3 and he’s excluded, as much as I disagree with him politically I think that’s a mistake,” Paul said. “The same way with Fiorina. There’s no reason why people should be told that they have no chance with three weeks to go.”
Fox Business released the criteria their Charleston Republican debate that will be held on January 14, 2016. There are three possible ways for a candidate to make the main debate stage. A candidate must meet one of the three requirements.
To be on the main debate stage a candidate can be in top six nationally in an average of the five most recent live telephone polls, or be in the top five in Iowa or the top five in New Hampshire in an average of the five most recent live telephone polls from those states.
As of today, the following six candidates would be on the main debate stage:
Those six candidates are the top six polling candidates nationally. Also the top five candidates in Iowa and New Hampshire are made of these candidates as well. John Kasich could possible make this debate if his polls a little higher in New Hampshire to gain the fifth place spot in the state which is currently being held by Jeb Bush. It seems at most the main debate stage will have seven candidates.
There also will be a undercard debate. To qualify for this debate candidates must poll at least 1% in the five most recent national polls.
There are three ways to qualify for the prime time debate being held on December 15.
This is the first time that polls from Iowa and New Hampshire will be used to determine if a candidate is in the debate.
The polls that have been released between October 29 - December 13 will be used by CNN to determine the candidates that will be in the debate. If a poll is released on December 13, it must be released by 5 pm.
There will also be an under card debate. If a candidate fails to make the prime time debate they could be in the under card debate as long as the candidate reaches at least 1% in four separate Iowa, New Hampshire or national polls.
Below are the videos of the prime time 2016 Republican primary Fox Business Debate. The debate is split up in seven parts.

Good news for the Carly Fiorina fans, because of the rule changes for the upcoming debate, Carly will most likely be in the debate.
The original rules of the debate were unfair. That original rules put in place by CNN would use an average of national polling from July 16 - September 10 to determine who the top ten candidates on the debate stage would be. This would make it impossible for candidates who surged after the Cleveland debate, such Carly Fiorina to make it to the main debate. Polls taken prior to the first debate should have never been considered in the first place for candidate placement in the upcoming CNN debate.
The new CNN debate rules are: The top ten for the debate will still be determined by an average of polls taken from July 16 - September 10. CNN will also look at the average of polls taken after the Cleveland debate, if any candidates make the top ten in the post debate average polls who did not make it in the average of July 16 - September 10 poll average, they will also be added to the debate stage.
So based on the two averages, the following candidates are expected as of now to make the debate, the list could potentially change as more polls are released over the next few days: (Please also be aware that the list of candidate below is in no particular order, CNN has not yet released the order for the candidate on the Debate stage)
The second 2016 Republican Presidential primary debate will be held in the Reagan Presidential Library. Nancy Reagan sent invitations out to 16 of the 17 Republican candidates for the debate. The only candidate that was not invited was former Virginia Governor Jim Gilmore, this is because one of the debate requirements is you must be polling at least 1%. As of right now Gilmore is below 1%. For the debate, the candidates that will be participating will be split up into two debates. One debate will have the top 10 candidates based on an average of recent polls. The debate will include the candidates who meet the minimum polling requirement of 1%.
As of right now the candidates who will be participating in each debate is exactly the same as the Fox News debate with the exception of Jim Gilmore. As of right now Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Chris Christie, Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, John Kasich, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Donald Trump, and Scott Walker will all be in the prime time GOP debate. In the other debate, Carly Fiorina, Lindsey Graham, Bobby Jindal, George Pataki, Rick Perry, and Rick Santorum will all be participating. Of course the candidates who participate in each debate can change because CNN will be using the average of polls from July 16 - September 10. From now until September 10, some candidates may rise up and some may fall and loose their position in the prime time debate. One example of this is many believe Carly Fiorina will make it into the prime time debate because of her strong performance in the Fox News debate and recent polling shows her gaining ground.
