Let me get my calendar...
Stephen will be sharing his take after the debates on June 26 and 27 live at 11:35 PM ET (delayed PT) on CBS and CBS All Access, and he'll get a little help from both sides of the aisle.

Start naming names.

Who else has a spot on the couch?
Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie joins on Thursday, June 27, as will founders of theSkimm Carly Zakin and Danielle Weisberg.
