The first presidential debate of 2016 is upon us. On Monday night, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and Republican candidate Donald Trump will take the stage at Hofstra University in New York to duke it out on some of the major issues on Americans' minds. 

When can you tune in to watch the showdown in real time? The debate will air at 9 p.m. Eastern and is currently scheduled to last about 90 minutes, per CNN.

The debate will be moderated by NBC's Lester Holt who, as CNN reported, announced the three specific debate topics ahead of time: "America's direction," "achieving prosperity" and "securing America."
