Election Night 2016 (ABC, NBC, CBS, 7:00 p.m.) – It’s that time. After what feels like years of having to listen to Republicans and Democrats go at it in the midst of one of the most insane election cycles we’ve ever had, the choice comes down to a flaming Cheeto and a woman who’s spent her entire career in politics. At this point, as long as we don’t have to hear the words “emails,” “hombres,” “nasty woman” and “yuuuge,” we’ll be happy no matter who wins. (Just kidding, there’s a clear better choice here people. Make it.)

Fox News Election Special (Fox, 8:00 p.m.) – Fox News is airing the same election coverage as everyone else, but the reason it’s getting its own slot on this list is because it starts an hour later than every other network’s coverage. Not sure why, but hey, we’re not complaining.

WWE SmackDown (USA, 8:00 p.m.) – Dean Ambrose has claimed the top spot. Now it’s time for AJ Styles to answer.

Channel Zero: Candle Cove (Syfy, 9:00 p.m.) – Mike and Amy hunt for the creator of Candle Cove but their search ends with shocking results.

Ink Master (Spike, 10:00 p.m.) – We take a look back at season eight’s most memorable moments and put a spotlight on the remaining six artists.

Tosh.O (Comedy Central, 10:00 p.m.) – In which Tosh gives us his spin on this year’s elections (and calls the results early).

Aftermath (Syfy, 10:00 p.m.) – A mysterious figure shows up to warn the family that their only way to survive is back on the deadly mountain.

Drunk History (Comedy Central, 10:30 p.m.) – Drunk History also gives us an election-themed episode (as if we weren’t already burnt out on this crap). In case the current election seems like an outlier, here’s a refresher on how crazy things got between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson back in the day.

The Daily Show With Trevor Noah: Election Special (Comedy Central, MTV, VH1, Spike, 11:00 p.m.) – Trevor Noah is airing a special live edition of The Daily Show tonight to commentate on election results and probably bash Donald Trump some more. The show’s hit its stride in the past couple of months skewering the Republican nominee and anyone who supports him so expect much of the same tonight.

Stephen Colbert’s Live Election Night Democracy’s Series Finale: Who’s Going to Clean Up This Sh*t? (Showtime, 11:00 p.m.) – Colbert is taking his talents to CBS’ sister network for a live late night special too. Along with a a star-studded list of guests, the show will enjoy the freedom of cable TV – meaning swearing and possibly full frontal nudity.
