Vice Presidential Debate: When and Where to Watch Joe Biden vs. Paul Ryan

Vice President Joe Biden locks horns with Republican challenger Paul Ryan Thursday night in the sole debate between the two presidential sidekicks.

The major networks and cable news channels will broadcast the debate -- which lasts from 6-7:30 p.m. PST -- from Centre College in Danville, Kentucky.

Moderated by ABC News' chief foreign correspondent Martha Raddatz, the candidates will spar over domestic and foreign policy.

NPR will broadcast live coverage of the showdown, too.

Online, the debates will be streamed on Ustream, YouTube, Facebook Live and various news sites including the BuzzFeed and the New York Times.

Cable television will no doubt reap the rewards of the vice presidential parley, the second in a series of four debates between the two opposing presidential tickets. The other three are between President Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney.

At the last debate on Oct. 3, Fox News Channel bested CNN and MSNBC, with 10.4 million total views, according to Nielsen Media Research. CNN drew 6 million total viewers, while MSNBC tailed behind with 4.7 million.
