The third and final presidential debate between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump will commence on Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2016, at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas.

The two prior debates saw often vicious fighting between Trump and Clinton, with round one ending in a such a rout even Trump's surrogates admitted he clearly lost and round two ending in something more closely approximating a draw.

In the meantime, Trump has steadily lost ground amid a burgeoning series of scandals including the release of a 2005 videotape in which he bragged about groping and kissing women without their consent, investigations into his tax payments and compliance with laws regulating charities, and a growing rebellion in the rest of the GOP against his candidacy.

Where to watch the debate live and online

The debate goes live at 9:00 p.m. Eastern on Wednesday, Oct. 19.

Networks and others streaming the debate include Twitter and Facebook live streams on ABC News, Fox News, C-SPAN, the New York Times, CNBC BuzzFeed and Telemundo, reported the Associated Press. Other organizations will conduct YouTube streams including NBC News, the Washington Post, Telemundo, and Fox News. Moreover, traditional TV outlets including ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, CNN, Fox News, C-SPAN and MSNBC will be airing the debates live on television.

Finally, as the AP noted, Snapchat will be covering the debate as a live event, while CBS will be running integrated Instagram stories on CBSN, its streaming app.
