I think NBC’s best asset is owning Rockefeller Center, it’s iconic and the AR graphics on the tower and plaza were very well executed. MSNBC utilized it well too, they were using the plaza as their backdrop unlike NBC.

Not that those were necessary as AR graphics, but the stark clean graphics did show up well overlayed on the surfaces.

Here's NBC's coverage from last night (the network coverage starts an hour in, after an online warm-up show):



ABC (network coverage from 3 hours 30 minutes, after online-only stuff):



CBS (network coverage after 5 hours 35 minutes of CBSN):



Here's MSNBC calling the House for the Democrats, with some shots of their studio towards the end:



And it never gets much attention, but PBS's coverage is available here:

They own a little more than half of the tower. They also rent out space in the Today Show building (10 Rockefeller) and I believe 45 Rockefeller. I think they have a total of 1.4 million sq ft in the center that’s leased or owned.

I think they closed the rink Tuesday but on Sunday and Monday you could occasionally see hands on the rails of the ice rink while the person was keyed out.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

As for Spanish language networks Telemundo appeared to be the only network to stream via YouTube:



My Spanish is rusty but appears they held a watch party/results show in their atrium.

The title sequence for the Midterms programme on BBC News now is gorgeous, and fits well with the music. Shame they have to stick that awful hexagonal logo they're using on the end though.

It looked a little tacky and cheap to me. Not just the logo popping on screen, but the clockworks and cheap looking CGI capitol hill building

Also note the subtle Game of Thrones influence in the music, as well as the concept itself
