WASHINGTON, November 6, 2012 — Keep the coffee pot going or break out the beer keg, whatever will get you through the night, because if the political pundits are right, tonight is going to be a very long night.

And just know that no matter what your poison is, by 4 a.m. you will feel like you have a hangover whoever wins the 2012 election, President Obama or Governor Romney.

So where to watch? Almost everywhere.

Starting a 7 p.m. EST, the Election Coverage will be underway at the following stations (look for your local listings):

ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC

But not to be missed is the Jon Stewart’s “The Daily Show” and Stephen Colbert’s “The Colbert Report,” broadcasting live at 11 p.m. and 11:30 p.m., EST respectively.

Comedy Central’s ready for the election

The election results will not start coming in until the polls close on the West Coast and Hawaii at 11 p.m. EST, which is when Stewart and Colbert go on the air to analyze the returns and the results.

Stewart has dubbed his show “Election Night 2012: This Ends Now,” with his comedic team tackling the analysis. Colbert has given a long, rambling moniker to his show: ““Election 2012: A Nation Votes, Ohio Decides; The Re-Presidenting of America: Who Will Replace Obama? ‘012!” His guest will be political pundit Andrew Sullivan.

Both shows will be simulcast on MTV’s Times Square JumboTron and streamed live on comedy central.com.

And keep in mind to win the election, either President Obama or Governor Romney must get 270 electoral votes. Talk about The Race to the Top.
