These Channels Will Broadcast The Final Debate

If the first two are any good indicator, the last presidential debate will have people talking for days. It will be Donald Trump's last chance to persuade those in the GOP who haven't already abandoned the Trump Train to stick with him through November, and Hillary Clinton, well, will just have to be herself. It will definitely be a showdown you won't want to miss — so what channel is the last presidential debate on? As always, there's no reason to skip out on what will surely be an entertaining night.

The final debate will take place on Wednesday, Oct. 19 at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas, and will run the usual (often excruciating) 90 minutes from 9 to 10:30 p.m. EST. The format will be identical to the first debate, where the candidates are speaking to each other and a moderator, as opposed to a town hall of voters. It is is being moderated by Fox News' Chris Wallace, so viewers could turn to the network to watch.

For those keeping track, Wallace helped Megyn Kelly moderate that now-infamous debate in which Trump accused Kelly of having blood come "out of her wherever." Wallace's debate performance was generally seen as even-handed if a little hard on Trump (in days when many in the media were still lobbing him softball questions). Recently, however, Wallace said that his role as moderator was not to be a "truth squad" against candidates' inaccuracies on the debate stage. We'll see how that plays out next week.


In addition to Fox News, you can catch the debate live on CNN and MSNBC, as well as C-SPAN, ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC, among others.

For those who already cut the cord for the television, you can stream the debate online through a variety of methods. Twitter and Facebook will both offer a live stream of the debate, with rolling commentary at the bottom or side of the screen from its users (in case you felt like getting your coworkers' opinions in real time, as well as those of millions of strangers).

While the topics for the third debate have not been announced yet, it really seems to be anyone's guess as this point. Who knew a year ago that the candidates would be up on stage discussing the Republican nominee's fondness for sexual assault. In any case, this third — and thankfully final — round will be available to watch on multiple channels.
