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.


Presidential Debate

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?

Food Network Star Kids

Food, 8 p.m.

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.
