So they are in Times Square but the background is a newswall with a view of Times Square?

Great to see CBS upping its game so much this year.

When it comes to election night sets, they've made the least effort out of the three main networks for every past election I can remember - the old Evening News studio for many years (which, to be fair, looked ok) and the CBS This Morning studio more recently.

This one looks fantastic.

I don't know whether ABC's production will look that grand this year, but they will have to keep an eye out on the CBS News branding opposite them:


ABC's election night coverage is rumoured to be coming from their refurbished TV3 studio (which they used for Super Tuesday) this year, rather than Times Square.

I hope it doesn't - I much prefer what they've done in Times Square in the past.


They will be based in TV3. But I imagine there will be elements such as AR outside in Times Square.

I’m sure all but the ABC facade were AR.

To be fair, using a video wall background of Times Square rather than a real one isn't as odd as it sounds. ABC did that in 2012 and 2016.

They used to do that with GMA.

Really. Because it was present in the backround of the BBC's 2016 Coverage.

In the past, ABC has indeed taken over a lot of electronic billboards in Times Square.

Not sure if this was definitely the case in 2016 - but this 360-degree live stream from the time suggests that it was.

Fox News is set up for their version of fake election coverage. The set is nice and bright and modern and clean looking.

Fox News will unveil brand new election technology across its linear and digital platforms during 2020 presidential race coverage on Election Night.

Broadcasting from FNC’s flagship Studio F, Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum will use new immersive 3D graphics and enhanced studio technology for live updates, providing viewers access to the election process and comprehensive insight into the evening’s developments.

Real-time 3D graphics and visual effects of a digitally-constructed White House will serve as a backdrop to showcase the status of various races and guide viewers through the developments across both FNC’s and FBN’s live coverage.

Constructed to visually breakdown the path to victory in the House and Senate, graphics will feature “Balance of Power” and “Net Gain” indicators to illustrate turnovers of Democrat and Republican held seats as the results are reported. The network’s Presidential Race Scoreboard, National Popular Vote and Electoral Vote count will be highlighted visually through virtual set and special effects technology in Studio F.

The studio’s signature video chandelier, featuring 528-square-feet of high-resolution graphics around its 14-foot diameter, will function in tandem with the space’s video floor directly beneath it, displaying the latest generation of digital effects.

Fox News Predictability Meters, designed to calculate how a race in progress is yielding a predicted winner, will be expanded beyond the national level to also analyze potential outcomes of state-by-state races. The “Meters” will provide insight into which candidates hold the winning advantage at any moment in time based upon statistical models, while voting precincts report in and critical votes are being tabulated.

Bill Hemmer’s signature “Bill-board” will also return to provide viewers an interactive presentation platform with new technical capabilities for the 2020 election. Based on real-time data technology, Hemmer’s “Bill-board” will enable a more dynamic view into all election data, census data, and historical data, to drill down state-by-state, county-by-county and illustrate scenarios that can lead the different candidates to the path to victory.

Lastly, a real time ticker of results will also run at the bottom of the screen that will mirror what is seen on the linear channel.
I'm here to give you something to talk about! You're Welcome.
