DON'T MISS: The presidential debate - They've been throwing long-distance verbal jabs at one another for months. On Monday the candidates - Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump - finally come face to face on the same stage at New York's Hofstra University in the first of three scheduled debates. Judging from the spiteful tone of the campaign, this could get ugly. NBC anchor Lester Holt will be the referee, er, moderator. 9 p.m. Eastern, on all the broadcast networks and cable news channels.
