"The Daily Show" plans to continue its tradition of broadcasting live as results come in on election night.

The one-hour Nov. 3 special episode, dubbed "Votegasm 2020: What Could go Wrong? (Again)," will air live on both coasts and will stream on social media channels, Comedy Central said Thursday.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the show will "broadcast from its election fallout shelter" in New York, according to a tongue-in-cheek statement from the cable network.
