Personally, I’d rather watch Andrew Neil’s US election coverage than anyone else’s, so I’m glad they’re not wasting the opportunity to use him for a final big event.

Surely both parties are just seeing out the agreement they made with regards the coverage, I don’t see why he shouldn’t be allowed to have one last hurrah.

BBC have confirmed Andrew Neil to present election night, then he will leave the BBC


"the US election coverage will be his last BBC presentation work" does not automatically imply he will host the election night coverage, only that he will be involved in the presentation of the entire cycle of programming around the event.

It's likely to be carried I think it's unlikely they will do bulletins overnight and some times they can be a bit slow updating schedules online at the moment. But the VP debate is in schedule for 8th October?

I haven't seen anything about Sky showing the debate. If I remember well, they showed all three debates in 2016 with Adam Boulton from the UK and Kay Burley out in America.
Does Graham Norton have Norton Security installed on his computer?

They've been running a promo today saying they're showing the first debate on Wednesday at 2am.
Out of interest, Sky hope to have Burley out in the US for the election week, barring any visa difficulties.

Anyone know who the man presenting live from the debate site on Sky News is?

EDIT: Oh it’s Greg Milam.

I got up to watch the debate on BBC NC. I'm finding the sideboard information panels quite useful to explain some of the smaller issues that a non-US viewer may not understand.

I don't think the absence of an audience has made much difference.

At first I thought that Chris Wallace appeared to have lost control of the participants, although he did seem to pull it back slightly in later rounds. However, dealing with two squabbling geriatrics is probably no easier than trying to nail jelly to a wall. Shocked

Ah, interesting. Nice touch, I didn't watch the BBC coverage but I've gone back to look and agree that's a useful device to explain things:

Big desks and multiple studios in use with the US networks to comply with social distancing, an example below:

CNN's Dana Bash gave her verdict: "It was a sh!tshow".
