Wednesday on Utah TV: It's Obama vs. Romney

At long last, it's this year's first presidential debate (7 p.m., Channels 2, 4, 5, 7, 13, CNBC, CNN, C-SPAN, FNC, FBN, MSNBC). President Barack Obama and former Gov. Mitt Romney face off at the University of Denver.

It's not that I've been all that anxious to see the debate. But I am extraordinarily tired of the unending, mind-numbing "analysis" of the upcoming event that has been all over television news.
