Plans for The Granite State

By SteveK 

The networks are gearing up for another long night of political coverage tomorrow, and each has announced their programming schedule for the New Hampshire primary.

CNN will begin special programming at 8pmET, lead by Wolf Blitzer. As with Iowa, Larry King Live will air a special live edition at 12:00amET. Expect the CNN Election Center to be crowded once again.

FNC’s schedule for tomorrow has changed quite a bit. From 2-4pmET, Shepard Smith will anchor Studio B, with Chris Wallace stepping in to anchor the following two hours. Brit Hume and Smith will be back as regularly scheduled at 6pmET and 7pmET. The special coverage will remain the same as in Iowa, with Hume anchoring from 8-10pmET, Hannity and Colmes airing at 10pmET and Smith and Greta Van Susteran anchoring at 11pmET.

MSNBC will use the team of Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann to anchor election coverage, beginning at 6pmET. Matthews will host a special edition of Hardball at 5pmET. Joining the duo for analysis will be Nightly News anchor Brian Williams, Meet the Press host Tim Russert and Special Correspondent Tom Brokaw, among others.
