Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are about to go head-to-head for the second time. The presidential debate will take place on October 9th at Washington University in St. Louis. What’s the format this time around?
The second debate’s format will be drastically different both from the first debate and from the vice presidential debate, as this one will take the form of a town hall, according to the Commission on Presidential Debates. This means that Clinton and Trump will be surrounded by uncommitted voters who have the opportunity to ask the candidates questions. Both nominees will have two minutes to respond to the question posed, and an additional minute will be devoted to followups from the moderator or to any other additional conversation.
Those undecided voters’ questions will make up about half of the debate. The other half will consist of questions posed by the two moderators, CNN’s Anderson Cooper and ABC’s Martha Raddatz. The questions are written by Cooper and Raddatz alone, with the Commission on Presidential Debates not seeing them beforehand. Once again, candidates have two minutes to respond, and there will be another minute for Cooper and Raddatz to follow up.

I don't imagine a lot of children are trying to convince their parent to let them watch a political debates. So we should be safe on that front. I'd be more concerned about the people on site at the debate. If Trump spots "a 10" in the crowd, there's no telling what he would do.
