Your daily guide to the most interesting stuff happening on TV and streaming. All times Eastern.


Stephen Colbert’s Live Election Night Democracy’s Series Finale: Who’s Going to Clean Up This S—?

Showtime, 11 p.m.

Yes, that’s right, the Late Show host is going to be reporting on (slash making fun of!) tonight’s election results live for an hour on premium cable, where he’ll be able to do and say pretty much anything he wants. Should be a good time!


The Daily Show With Trevor Noah

Comedy Central, 10 p.m.

Trevor Noah will get his first taste of American-style elections tonight when the Daily Show also goes live for an hourlong special. “He’s so entertained by all this that it’s amazingly refreshing to watch him watch this election,” EP Jen Flanz told EW of the South African-born host’s attitude towards the campaign. But Noah won’t be alone, of course: Expect on-the-fly comedy from the full team of correspondents.
