Also: The debate itself!
TV and streaming. All times Eastern.
PICK OF THE WEEKEND
The Late Show With Stephen Colbert
CBS, 11:35 p.m.
After a successful run of live episodes during the Republican and Democratic conventions, Stephen Colbert will do it all again after the upcoming presidential debate — starting with tonight’s big Trump vs. Clinton showdown (see below). Be sure to check out our interview with Colbert here to find out more about the live special — as well as his thoughts on who might win the debate itself.
Various networks, 9 p.m.
Of course, you should also watch the debate itself! Lester Holt moderates as Clinton and Trump discuss the important issues and not emails or hand size…right? Right?

But as an appetizer (see what I did there?) to the debates, be sure to tune in as the show’s young contestants shop for ingredients and whip up their final entrée. Meanwhile, I, a grown adult, will probably watch this while eating microwaved Hot Pockets.
