What Time Is the Presidential Debate?

The final debate between President Barack Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney is Oct. 22 at 9 p.m. Find out where to see it on TV and where to watch online.

Tonight's the night: President Barack Obama and former Gov. Mitt Romney will meet up for their third and final presidential debate tonight, Oct. 22 at 9 p.m. 

From the first debate that saw a huge boost for Romney's campaign to the second that brought out the fiestiness in both candidates, voters have had two chances to see the candidates go head-to-head.

Tonight's debate, moderated by Face the Nation's Bob Schieffer, returns to the format of the first—candidates fielding questions from Schieffer, this time on foreign policy. It's a good bet that the attacks against the American consulate in Libya will be front and center, and also look for Obama to bring up Osama bin Laden's death.

Here are the details of the third presidential debate:

TV Channels Broadcasting Live: ABC, CBS, CNN, CSPAN, FOX, MSNBC, NBC, PBS

Time: 9 p.m. EST

Location: Lynn University in Boca Raton, FL
