If you want to watch the first night of the democratic debate you can stream live here:



So there are five moderators however only three will be on stage at a time - Lester Holt will be on for both hours. For the first hour Savannah Guthrie and José Díaz-Balart while the second hour will feature Chuck Todd and Rachel Maddow.

NBC have come up with a nice set design. I know some networks can get a bit too carried away with stars and stripes. They still feature here, but it looks modern and kept quite clean. I think the podiums look great.

If you caught the end they have an extension piece that added two more seats. It looked nice.

There was a power cut at 30 Rock this evening the midst of Nightly News. Kate Snow had to decamp to a generator-powered set, at some points not appearing in vision to do links.

Studio 3A appeared to remain fully active as they were on air. The only difference were accent lights going down (the backlit walls) and the TV monitors on the newsroom half were on but showing no source.

MSNBC has relocated across the Hudson to NJ to the CNBC HQ in FT Lee.



They’re still live from 30 Rock but I imagine he will be there for a while as a contingency. 30 Rock has been running on generator power for the past 3.5 hours.

Apparently this is coming to an end.




I would imagine if this was in any other major city, LA or Chicago, the networks would have ....maybe...maybe given it an top of the hour update but stuck with recorded programming. Mind you there was a destructive storm hitting the gulf affecting way more people. But because the networks are all located in NYC they feel its a big enough story for everyone to care about. Another reason why CNN was better broadcasting out of Atlanta.
I'm here to give you something to talk about!

The power came on for the sixth area mainly the area around Rockefeller Center at around 10:59AM. Of all the broadcasters I’d imagine NBC and Fox were the last to come back online.

I didn’t see this when I mentioned it came back online.

I think other major cities would get coverage. Tropical Storm Barry was been downgraded from a hurricane and is relatively inland and isn’t causing the damage people thought. MSNBC gave about 10 minutes every hour to Barry.

This blackout affected reportedly 91,000 ConEd connections some of which could cover hundreds or thousands of people. It was a decent chunk of Manhattan without power.

The major cable networks were likely going to go to recorded programming or other programming. Morgan Redford posted she was going to anchor on msnbc for the CBP raids that are starting up. During storms most people turn to The Weather Channel anyway. Those in the affected areas remain local.

NBC have uploaded the West Coast edition of Nightly News.

The pre-blackout parts remain before 8:40, then Kate Snow is in the studio pictured above with the single screen talking about the blackout. It includes a clip of herself in darkness.

The rest of broadcast continues from that single screen.

Interesting @ 11:44 they are in the studio again in the alcove. On the west coast feeds they typically cut out elements and insert new ones. That segment was actually aired right around when the blackout hit - 6:47pm.

Looks like they dropped a tribute to a MLB player, Tyler Skaggs of the Los Angeles Angels, who died unexpectedly while at an away game. At the first home game his mother threw out the first pitch, the players all wearing his jersey, they won 13 and 0 and the teammates put his jersey on the pitchers mound.

It was interesting that they had scenic views of the western half of the country in the closing instead of the standard NYC skyline.
