Tonight's TV Conundrum: Presidential Debate or Giants Game?

KTVU was forced to choose between the two programs and opted for the Giants instead of the third and final Obama-Romney debate. Which will you be watching?

Monday evening's television schedule pits presidential politics against Giants baseball. Both are competitions where only one team can win, and both will be fighting for eyeballs. Which will you be watching?

It's a tough choice. The third debate between President Barack Obama and challenger Mitt Romney focuses on foreign policy, and is the last chance for voters to see the two battle it out before the Nov. 6 election. The debate starts at 6 p.m. and goes until 7:30 p.m.

But the final meeting between the San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals decides who will go through to the World Series. The game starts at 5:07 p.m.

Local TV stations are having to make a choice too — and in the Bay Area, the Giants are winning out. KTVU Program Manager Eric Casella says channel 2 will air the Giants game in its entirety. As a Fox station, KTVU had originally planned to show the debate. But when the never-say-die Giants forced a Game 7 the decision was immediately made to show the Giants.

For whichever one you choose to skip, there are repeats, of course, plus options like using the DVR or watching online later.
