FILE - In this April 5, 2011 file photo, Republican Vice Presidential candidate, current House Budget Committee Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., introduces his controversial "Path to Prosperity" budget recommendations, on Capitol Hill in Washington. Paul Ryan traveled a perilous route to political stardom. While other lawmakers nervously whistled past trillion-dollar deficits, fearing to cut popular programs, he waded in with a machete and a smile. Ryan wants to slice away at Medicare, Social Security, food stamps and virtually every other government program but the military. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)
Wednesday on Utah TV: It's Paul Ryan's night at the GOP convention

The big draw for tonight's GOP infomercial known as the Republican National Convention is vice presidential hopeful Paul Ryan's acceptance speech (8-9 p.m., Channels 2, 4, 5, 7, CNBC, CNN, C-SPAN, Current FBN, FNC, MSNBC)

It will pretty much only be news if he declines the nomination.
