The second presidential debate will take the form of a town meeting, in which half of the questions will be posed directly by citizen participants and the other half will be posed by the moderator based on topics of broad public interest as reflected in social media and other sources. The candidates will have two minutes to respond and there will be an additional minute for the moderator to facilitate further discussion. The town meeting participants will be uncommitted voters selected by the Gallup Organization.
All debates, including tonights, will run from 9:00-10:30 p.m. Eastern Time without commercial breaks.
Here's how to watch it:
Unlike the primary season debates, all three presidential debates will be simulcast across the major networks and cable channels — CBS, NBC, ABC, Fox, PBS, Univision, CNBC, CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, C-SPAN.
All of the networks and major cable outlets have an online presence, so of course they are streaming the debates along with digital-first outlets like Buzzfeed News, Huffington Post, Politico, and Yahoo. Telemundo, the Wall Street Journal, Hulu, ABC News is using Facebook Live, and is also live-streaming on NBC News' YouTube page and on Twitter in partnership with Bloomberg.
