A collection of the most insane, intense, surprising and emotional moments from the TV coverage of Election Day 2016


2:42 a.m. ET

CNN reports that Hillary Clinton has called Donald Trump to concede the race.

2:40 a.m. ET

Fox News declares Donald Trump the president-elect.

2:18 a.m. ET

MSNBC has put together an animated GIF of how the electoral map has shaken out Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning.

12:35 a.m. ET

The battle continues with NBC calling Nevada for Clinton. To say the country is polarized, at this point, would be a massive understatement.

12:30 a.m. ET

With the possibility of Donald Trump becoming president nearing more of a reality, the Canadian Immigration website server has crashed.

11:50 p.m. ET

That’s Georgia for Trump. Currently, he leads 244 to 209 in the race to the White House. Things are not looking good for Clinton. It’s coming down to Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan. Who’d have thought?

11:45 p.m. ET

Presented, without context.

11:45 p.m. ET

That’s a biggie, right there. Winning Florida gives Trump a big advantage. Now eyes are on Wisconsin and Michigan. And to think, Florida just made marijuana legal. Coincidence? Probably.

11:40 p.m. ET

And now, a little bit of levity amid the election madness…

11:40 p.m. ET

And now, a glimpse into Trump HQ…

11:35 p.m. ET

If ever there was a tight race, this would be it.

11:10 p.m. ET

Sometimes, getting your moment on camera requires a bruise or two. Shout out to NBC to giving this Arkansas man in shorts his time in the spotlight.

10:45 p.m. ET

While the race remains to be a tight anxiety attack that seemingly has no end in sight, we can’t help but acknowledge the large drop in Dow Jones futures. At the height of the dip, the stock predictions were down 750 points. As we await our own future, the stock market isn’t feeling so great.

8:25 p.m. ET

Florida just can’t seem to make up its mind. With 29 electoral votes hanging in the balance the vote is essentially tied between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Wolf Blitzer is practically beside himself with excitement as the numbers go back and forth.

7:01 p.m. ET

It’s going to be a very long night. The first projections are in and there’s still millions of votes left to count! At least they’ve got electoral numbers on the board, though.

6:30 p.m. ET

Brian Williams

There’s really not much to report on yet as the polls have just started to close around the country. That leads to possibly the most accurate thing you’ll hear on a news report tonight, care of MSNBC’s Brian Williams. “We have some real numbers,” he says. “They aren’t predictive and they don’t mean anything.”

6:00 p.m. ET

Due to a small typo, it seems Donald Trump is convinced CNN has reported widespread voting machine malfunctioning around the country. Luckily, they can clear up that little bit of misinformation.

4:36 p.m. ET

Donald Trump has apparently ordered a bust of some kind for his party in NYC tonight. It’s unclear what it is made out of — paper mache? Painted marble? Marzipan and fondant covering a funfetti center? The suspense is killing us.

4:22 p.m. ET

People are flocking to Susan B. Anthony’s grave to place their “I voted” stickers on the memorial to the woman who fought for all women’s right to vote.

4:08 p.m. ET

Chapstick-gate became a whole big thing on Fox News for a few minutes. Ya gotta fill that air time somehow.

3:55 p.m. ET

Hillary Clinton fans are wearing pantsuits Tuesday to show their support.

1:24 p.m. ET

Donald Trump can’t his eyes on his own paper and apparently neither can his son. Gotta keep a sharp eye on those wives.

11:00 a.m. ET

Fox News unveils a new studio for its election coverage, which includes 34 monitors and an 80-inch touch screen.

Fox News Election Headquarters producer Valeria Riccioli tells FoxNews.com, “Our biggest task has been to make sure we don’t get lost in the technology and make sure it functions editorially. The possibilities in this studio are endless.”

Take that, CNN’s Magic Map wall!
