Since nobody will watch this debate other than some dorks on here, it will not be likely to change the narrative and thusly we can count it as an automatic Gingrich win. Congrats, Mr. Newt!

The CBS Saturday debate did about as well as the weekday debates on the cable networks:

The fact that it's on a Saturday night is nearly made up for by the fact that it's on a broadcast network rather than a cable network.

Considering that the audience for these things is probably old people, I'm sure they have nothing better to do on a Saturday night.

I wonder if we'll see a different dynamic with only six candidates on stage. Will some viewers  assume that Huntsman's absence means he's withdrawn from the race?

Even Pelley was more tolerable. Only John King was worse.
