Third Presidential Debate time, live stream, TV channel: How to watch Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump debate

(Reuters/Mike Segar)Republican U.S. presidential nominee Donald Trump shakes hands with Democratic U.S. presidential nominee Hillary Clinton at the start of their first presidential debate at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y.

After the first two debates — first on Sept. 26 and the second on Oct. 4 — plus a series of controversies plaguing both candidates, the third and final debate leading up to the 2016 presidential elections is finally happening tonight, Oct. 19, at 9 p.m. ET.

The start of October saw a huge shift in poll results in what analysts call the "October surprise." This is due to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's recent controversy regarding a past record of him engaged in what was called "locker room talk," in which he talked about how he can use his fame to get away with grabbing a woman's private part.

It did not also help that Trump is already embroiled in different other controversies in the past, which already involves sexist and racist remarks even before the debates happened.

Democrat presidential nominee Hilary Clinton, is still mum about her reported WikiLeaks controversy. Clinton was under fire ever since her candidacy due to undisclosed email conversations that she used under private servers despite performing government functions. Said emails are now labeled as highly classified by the state.
