I'm watching the U.S. election returns tonight. What network will have the best anchor, most informative commentators, and accurate calls?

The most accurate calls won't be on TV, but rather Decision Desk HQ. For anchors, I like MSNBC because of Rachel Maddow (and Chris Matthews is amusingly bonkers). Ringing in the 2012 vote with Maddow was a good time. But YMMV.

Skip back and forth between channels, especially in between poll closing times. Then keep browser tabs with each channel's website open on your computer.

Seconding MSNBC for Rachel Maddow, who is the smartest, most level-headed person in cable politics and funny to boot.

BBC World News America has full-time coverage starting at 1 p.m. PST. Katty Kay is in D.C. anchoring.

For straight raw numbers, Politico's Presidential Election Results Web page is the best I've found.
