It’s hardly fair of CNN to tease us for more than a day with a ticking countdown clock to the first Democrat presidential debate and then pull a switcheroo when there are just “moments left.”
So wait — the debate countdown clock got us to an ad. Then a flashy open (that focused on 2 candidates) then Sheryl Crow then another ad?

@BretBaier CNN doesn't pull in that prime demo you do Bret. They need to squeeze and shake that money maker as much as possible.

It's 8:45 and the 8:30 #DemDebate hasn't started yet.

CNN: shameless money making. Advertises debate at 830. Shows commercials instead. Then anthem. Then more commercial. Now 8:44.

@BretBaier 27 minutes in and all I've heard is a wounded crow

@BretBaier the commercial is to give us time to morn the killing of our national anthem….

Someone explain to me all the movie ads. Why?

I watch the debates for the movie trailers

Not a total loss. Got a look at the new Bond film commercial.

@BretBaier at least the 007 movie looks good!
— Mike Piorkowski (@MikePiorkowski) October 14, 2015
@BretBaier yes, but the ads are better, would rather watch 007 SPECTRE!

Spectre gonna be so good

Hillary Clinton managed to get in the first word.
Good start CNN! I think Hillary's mic was hot as they went to a commercial.

Hillary just asked on hot mic — "Are we supposed to go stand in our places?" Oh, this could be a fun night
