A Google search got me to youdecide.org with the following info provided:

Each debate will begin at 9pm eastern, 6pm pacific time and last for 90 minutes. They will be aired on every major broadcast network such as CBS, NBC, ABC, and FOX. They will also be aired on cable outlets such as Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, and many others.
And from spreadit.org:

All four debates will begin at 9pm ET, and last for 90 minutes and will be broadcast on CBS, NBC, ABC, and FOX, CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, and C-SPAN.
As said, if you can get any of those in HD, you're covered.

I would think that the major networks wont have a crawl and that Fox and CNN will have their usual "busy" screen they think we still like...

Don't need to worry about that; the World Fishing Network isn't planning on carrying the debate (although they're not on DirecTV anyway).

I agree with jhollan2 -- the broadcast networks will probably just have a graphic at the bottom reading, for example, "NBC News Live Coverage/The Presidential Debate."

Carried in HD? Who cares? How would having a broadcast in HD add value? It is about what they say not what they look like that matters.

Actually, it is about what they can really do and not what they say, even. Most people have no clue about what very little the president can do. Read up on your Constitution. It is Congress that that does things. The president's real power in the use of the "Bully Pulpit" that comes with the presidency.

PBS was fantastic during the DNC and RNC... nothing on the screen at all! (insert political joke here)

Really, it was great not to see all the tickers and junk all over the place. Hopefully they show all the debates like that too.

I have been saying this for years!

I'm not really concerned if it is in HD... but I would love to see each candidate hooked up to a BS Meter for the entire debate... of course we would then be unable to hear anything they said....

I typically watch debates with the volume muted. This way I am not disappointed when they break all their promises.

I agree with your statment %100. It's the verbal content that matters. HD is just the icing on the cake.
