Hahaha, British news anchors are a completely different breed from the US. It's so refreshing to see. Very Happy

I think they must pump coffee into Dimblbey's blood stream every hour.

I'm curious though Eldo, what strikes your American eye as most noticably different (or odd) about our news compared to yours.

Your guys actually ask meaningful questions and seem to care about reporting facts instead of ratings and spectacle.

ABC calling West Virginia. No surprises there.

They mentioned North Carolina but I think that's still too close to call.

I prefer UK news Carly, I watch US news mainly as entertainment.
The amazing thing is that many people complain the BBC has dumbed down over the years and become to American in style.

South Carolina called for Romney! Seems in UK terms a 'safe seat' however.

South Carolina has historically been the quintessential conservative Southern state. It's about as safe as they come.

Another reason I like BBC more than US cable news: no advertisements and more importantly no corporate sponsors within the programs.

Next to the electoral college scores should be a bar showing Dimbleby's energy levels as the night progresses

I'm watching BBC and ABC simultaneously so I'm going by what I've seen so far tonight. I don't have the opportunity to watch the Beeb very much but every time I've seen them they've been less corporate than US cable networks.

Ton of states closing in just a minute, including Maryland. We'll probably get called right off the bat since the Democrats almost always win Maryland.

Well its the BBC- they like to make sure they are right first, then report it.

Updated the OP to reflect this. Some places are calling New Hampshire but that still seems too close. I went ahead and put Illinois in Obama's column though, it's safe and some places are reporting it.

Something of a fluke in a heavily Democratic state and he's not favorably remembered by a lot people.
