Super Tuesday- Showdown: Coast to Coast  @ 8pm

They say that politics is show business for ugly people, but given the impressive ratings that presidential debates have racked up on the news channels lately (and given the strike-depleted larder of original programming), Barack, Hillary, John, Mike, Mitt and Ron must be looking prettier and prettier to harried network programmers.

Witness ABC clearing its prime-time decks - during sweeps, no less - to cover today's primaries and caucuses in 24 states. Real reality TV, all evening. CNN, MSNBC, the Fox News Channel and C-Span will also be on the story, all night; many PBS stations will have two hours of coverage, starting at 10 pm/ET; CBS also plans on two hours, starting at 9 pm/ET; and NBC currently has an hour slotted at 10 pm/ET.

Oh and don't forget to go out and vote today!!!!
