Let’s face it: Tonight’s probably going to be a far less exciting debate than the one we saw last week with Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Neither Mike Pence nor Tim Kaine is considered a huge personality on the same level as those two, and for the most part they’ve been largely under-the-radar in the Vice-Presidential race.
Yet, if you are heavily basing your vote in the elections on running mates — or just want to watch people scream at each other for more than an hour — it feels like this is the debate for you. This event will start at 9:00 p.m. Eastern time, and the majority of the major television networks out there will have coverage, especially when it comes to across broadcast TV. Of course, multiple cable news networks like CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC will also have some coverage. Elaine Quijano of CBS News is the moderator, hence the use of CBS in the photo above.
If you prefer to check out the debate online via a stream, why not check out Twitter? Given how much time people have spent this season fighting with each other and ignoring facts on one side or the other this election season, it only makes sense that they would give you streaming video. You can watch the debate in full live over at the link here; coverage should begin at around 8:30 p.m. Eastern.
For those wondering when the next main event is going to take place in the Debate cycle, it’s coming on Sunday night. We anticipate the ratings there once again being huge, and we’ll have some more coverage of that as we get closer to the weekend being there.
We’ll have more news on the debate tonight if anything big happens from a TV point of view — we’re not a political site, so we prefer to not discuss anything of that particular nature.
