Second presidential debate: What time, what channel, live stream

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton will meet in St Louis Sunday for the second presidential debate.

Before Friday, some had speculated that interest in the debate would not top the record-setting first debate which saw 84 million viewers tune in.

That’s probably not a safe bet anymore.

A video tape from more than a decade ago was released Friday, and in it Trump is heard using vulgar language about the way he could treat women because he was a “star.”

The GOP candidate heard from all corners of the party after the video went public, with some calling  for him to leave the race.

Trump insisted Saturday he would not drop out of the race. Trump’s running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, canceled an appearance set for Saturday in Wisconsin.

The AP reported the video was obtained and released Friday by The Washington Post and NBC News. In the video, Trump, who was married to his current wife at the time, is heard describing attempts to have sex with a married woman. He also brags about women letting him kiss them and grab their genitals because he is famous.

There is no doubt Trump will be asked Sunday about his comments in the video, the only question is how early in the debate that will happen.

Here’s a quick look at the logistics for Sunday’s event.

What time does it start?

The debate begins at 9 p.m. It will be 90 minutes long, without commercial interruption.

Where can I see it?

The debate will be broadcast live on cable news networks, the three major networks and other media outlets including social media.

Where is it?

The debate is being held at Washington University in St. Louis, Mo.

What is the structure for the debate?

According to the Commission on Presidential Debates, the second debate will be a town-hall format. Moderators will posed half the questions, members of the audience the other half. The town meeting participants will be uncommitted voters selected by the Gallup Organization, the commission said.

Who will moderate the debate?

CNN’s Anderson Cooper and ABC’s Martha Raddatz will moderate the debate.

Will anyone else be on the debate stage?

No, the Libertarian candidate, Gary Johnson, and the Green Party candidate, Jill Stein, failed to qualify for a spot on the debate stage.
