How to Watch the Third and Final Presidential Debate — on TV and Online

There's no shortage of options

Liz Raftery

Presidential nominees Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will square off Wednesday night in the third presidential debate debate in Las Vegas. This will be the final head-to-head meeting between the candidates before Election Day, Nov. 8.

As with the previous two, the third debate will get underway at 9 p.m. ET and last for 90 minutes. It will be moderated by Fox News' Chris Wallace, who will pose questions to both candidates related to the following six topics: immigration, entitlements and debt, the Supreme Court, the economy, foreign policy, and each candidate's fitness to serve as president.

There are a number of options to watch the debate either on TV or online. (Regular Wednesday night programming, including Criminal Minds, Modern Family, Black-ish and Chicago P.D.will be pre-empted.)
