2.8 Election Night-Part 1 **1/2
9 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What could possibly be more important on a presidential election night than reporting the votes as they are tabulated. Yet, this episode deals with other things that are going on and that is what makes this story so inane.

In the midst of squabbling, McAvoy and Mac bring up their affair from 6 years back. There are also accounts of previous episodes dealing with the lying story of chemical weapons being used.

Now, they're on to the new story of Gen. Petraeus and his alleged mistress.

You begin to wonder when they'll be reporting more substantive news from the Obama-Romney fight for the presidency in the 2012 election.
