Of all the cable news networks, CNN is the most anxious to reach for the countdown clock, whether it’s the number of seconds until a government shutdown or the time left until an asteroid grazes the earth by 3.6 million miles.

It’s a bit of a surprise, then, that CNN has passed on a countdown clock until the State of the Union address, leaving that honor to MSNBC. Maybe they picked it up at CNN’s garage sale.

We know the MSNBC anchors are tingling with anticipation, but the clock does have its uses.

CBS News’ Mark Knoller has all the countdown clock you need.
