Dave answers:
Good for WB56, however the time slot they are putting the debate into guarantees there will be no other live TV coverage of the debate with the possible exceptions of channels 2 and 38 but I seriously doubt they will carry it live...hopefully I'll be proven wrong.  Of course by beginning it at 10pm WB56 doesn't give up any programming time either.
