Tuesday’s debate will be divided into nine 10-minute segments. Each segment will begin with an opening question from Quijano, to which each candidate will be given two minutes to respond. The remaining six minutes are reserved for elaborations and rebuttals.
Though most of the pressure will remain on the candidates, Quijano is also likely to face a good deal of scrutiny from viewers. Following last week’s presidential debate, moderator Lester Holt received an “F” from 42 percent of TVLine readers; less than 20 percent graded him above a “C.” Among their grievances, our readers felt that Holt failed to enforce time limits and allowed himself to be interrupted too often.
