Mark Knoller, CBS Newsâ€™ unofficialÂ numbers guy, canâ€™t seem to get enough of CNNâ€™s on-screen countdown clocks. Our favorite: When Knoller thanked CNN for its essential asteroid flyby countdown clock, which dutifully ticked awayÂ the seconds while earthlings helplessly watched an asteroid pass within 3.6 million miles of our fragile planet.
Weâ€™re not sure when CNN started its countdown to the Democrat presidential debate, but we do know the channel gave its viewers more than 24 hours to ready themselves.
Honey â€“ can you check the debate countdown clock? Otherwise how will we know when it's 830pm/ET Tuesday. If only we had personal timepieces.

@markknoller I have an invention I've been holding onto since 1987 that would solve that problem. Getting it out of my head is the problem.

No worries: CNN has you covered.
With a full day to go, weâ€™d like to suggest that this countdown clock would be best of all time if CNN would just makeÂ this the alarm:
