I really wish they would have included the major three affiliates along with the three major cable news channels as opposed to including BBC, Bloomberg and Comedy Central - that way you could see local results as well as national. But this is still a great feature heading into Tuesday night.
 

AZ.

Comedy Central? Yeah, that's where I go for news. Although, sadly, so many younger people do.

Well seeing that most of what a politician does and says is a joke it becomes more relevant as time goes by!
I think the mix is a great idea.....Now if we had a guide that was somewhere close to 2016, just imagine if YOU had your own way of putting groups of channels on that could be customized!!!...Sports, movies, news, ect......

Lol, let's be careful this doesn't get political.

We do have the pit if that's what anyone is into. ;)

will they keep the 4-channel mix up if there is a tie or some other issue that makes for no winner on the 9th? or even the 6 channel one so they can show more then the 4 channels?
