With the final Democrat debate of the year scheduled on the Saturday before the holidays, several have noted that the schedule drives down viewership and shields Hillary Clinton from scrutiny.
Here's what a not so amused audience of reporters had to say about the DNC's snoozefest.
This may be the first presidential debate geared solely for an audience of shut-ins. Who do not have remote controls.— Karen Tumulty (@ktumulty) December 20, 2015
The Democratic debate is going to be so boring that @ananavarro is breaking down the Cruz-Rubio immigration spat on ABC.— Reid J. Epstein (@reidepstein) December 20, 2015
Because Clinton's DNC couldn't schedule it on the 8th day of the week. https://t.co/GMMLadB4QO— Ron Fournier (@ron_fournier) December 19, 2015

Mrs Fix just left for a holiday party. I stayed here. For a debate.— Chris Cillizza (@TheFix) December 20, 2015
If the DNC is this intent on burying the debates, why even tell people when they are? Just have them at, say, 3AM, and tell the press after.— Matt O'Brien (@ObsoleteDogma) December 20, 2015
What’s on ABC right before the debate? Some dumb local holiday preview, because ABC knows that no one is watching TV right now.— Philip Bump (@pbump) December 20, 2015
