Times Square is going to be crazy on election night. Not to be outdone by ABC's "Outdoor Global Viewing Event," Comedy Central will also have an outdoor viewing event. FNC's Times Square News Astrovision screen will also run the election results. From the press release:

"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 44½ JumboTron in the heart of Times Square on Broadway between West 44th Street and West 45th Street."

The MTV Jumbotron was last used in Nick Cannon's marriage proposal to Selita Ebanks.
