With Sunday debate, DNC places NFL, ‘Downton Abbey’ fans in tough spot

Once again, a Democratic debate is being held on the weekend, and this one could have a slimmer audience than usual — coming on the same day as two NFL playoff games, not to mention “Downton Abbey.”

The Sunday night debate in South Carolina, hosted by NBC News, is the latest in a series of weekend Democratic bouts. The timing has fueled allegations from Hillary Clinton’s rivals that party leaders are working behind the scenes to minimize her exposure.

This Sunday’s debate is in a particularly rough slot — forcing NFL fans and period drama lovers to choose between politics and pastimes.
