It'll be PBS for me.

Who's covering this for MSNBC? If it's not Olberman, I'll be watching WTTW PBS.

CNN is so in the tank!

CNN? Bah! PBS in HD FTW!

Is there anywhere to watch the debate online? I don't have tv, just internet.

I'll be listening to far more interesting commmentary from Britt Hume, Karl Rove and others on Fox.

Big buzz on CNN right now is Cafferty slamming Palin really hard about the Couric interview. I tried to find the video but it's not posted yet.

BTW - Saw a Spike Lee bit on CNN - boy did they try to bait him into saying something but he repeated many of the same talking points that Chris Rock did the night before. That can't be a coincidence.

I suspect once the morning of November 5th dawn the 'gag order' will be lifted - should be quite entertaining.

I suspect Obama will be playing it real safe tonight - seems to be the current strategy - let McCain & Palin drive the narative right off a cliff.

I only watch TV in HD... Comcast has no CNN in HD. But McCain looks scary in HD. What do I do?

PBS maybe. They had the RNC live; I don't see why they wouldn't have the debate. You should check it out ahead of time, they might require that you download additional plug-ins.

OK, for anyone else with no tv wanting video, CNN streams their channel live here (and you do need to install a plugin):

I checked PBS and didn't find any info about livestreaming (bummer). And I think CSPAN will livestream it, but the quality didn't seem to great.
