NEW YORK, Oct. 29 -- For the first time ever, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert will co-anchor from the same desk when "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" and "The Colbert Report" present "Indecision 2008: America's Choice," a LIVE Election Night primetime special, airing from 10:00 p.m. - 11:00 p.m. ET (7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. PT). "Indecision 2008: America's Choice" will originate from "The Daily Show's" New York-based studio which will be transformed for the momentous night into COMEDY CENTRAL's Election Center with a specially designed set for the primetime special. In addition, "Indecision 2008: America's Choice" will also be simulcast on MTV's 44-1/2 JumboTron in the heart of Times Square on Broadway between West 44th Street and West 45th Street.

"Indecision 2008: America's Choice" will feature the combined forces of the Emmy(R) and Peabody(R) Award-winning series, "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report." Hosted by Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert along with "The Best F*&#ing News Team Ever!" (correspondents Samantha Bee, Wyatt Cenac, Jason Jones, Aasif Mandvi, John Oliver, Rob Riggle and contributor Larry Wilmore), the LIVE special will bring viewers political coverage of the historic election with reports and analysis from the field and candidate headquarters.
