The first GOP primary debate airs tonight at 9 p.m -- and lands on the same night as Jon Stewart’s special 50-minute airing of his last night hosting the Daily Show.

It's like a political junkie's Super Bowl and NBA draft rolled into one night of appointment viewing.

Not surprisingly, this must-watch lineup of politically charged cable television has prompted a number of viewing parties throughout Washington D.C. And many feature food and drink specials!
