2016 Presidential Debate Schedules and Coverage

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - The organised page where you can easily access all of our debate coverage.

KoopaTV wants to make sure you achieve your goals of civic duty that you may have not even been aware of. To this end, we want to give you total coverage of both sides of the 2016 White House race for president of the United States of America. Because this is, of course, totally related to our overall site topic of the videogame industry in ways we won't try to explain right now. 

All times are in Eastern.

Debate Night 6: January 14, 2016 on Fox Business at 6 PM and 9 PM


There will be two debates. There are very strict rules on who can come in the higher debate this time. Jim Gilmore wasn't invited, while Lindsey Graham and George Pataki dropped out. Rand Paul is boycotting the debate because he wasn't invited to the winners' debate, so he said screw the whole thing.

That leaves seven folks in the primetime debate, and three in the lower one!

Lower has Carly Fiorina, Mike Huckabee, and Rick Santorum.

Better one has Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Ben Carson, Chris Christie, Jeb Bush, and John Kasich.

Debate Night 7: January 28, 2016 on Fox News at 7 PM and 9 PM


Again, two debates. This time, participating in the undercard debate will be Carly Fiorina, Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum... and Jim Gilmore! Remember him from Debate Night 1? He's back!

Invited to the primetime debate is Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Ben Carson, Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, John Kasich, and Rand Paul! Yes, Rand is returning as well. Unfortunately, Donald Trump has proclaimed that HE will now boycott the debate because he dislikes Fox News host Megyn Kelly.

You can watch the debates in a playlist here.
