Palo Alto University professor Christine Blasey Ford goes before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday to discuss her sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Here are answers to some questions on how the hearing is expected to unfold, and how the television networks are planning coverage.

What time does it start?

The hearing before the 21 members of the Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m.

Where can I watch it?

All of the cable news networks, as well as some of the national networks, are expected to cover the hearing. The hearing will also be shown on C-SPAN 3. All networks will use the same pool video feed from the Judiciary Committee hearing room. 

Who will anchor the coverage on the various networks?

Fox News' coverage will be anchored by Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum. CNN will have anchors Jake Tapper and Wolf Blitzer. ABC News will rely on morning anchor George Stephanopoulos, based in studio in New York, and evening news anchor David Muir, who will be on location in Washington, D.C. Other networks were finalizing their plans Wednesday morning.

What's the format for the hearing?

Blasey Ford and Kavanaugh will face the committee separately. Both will give opening statements and then undergo questioning that could last hours. Each of the 21 senators on the committee will be given five minutes to ask questions, but Republicans are bringing in Arizona prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, who will use the GOP time allocated for questioning for both Blasey Ford and Kavanaugh. Each of the 10 Democratic senators on the committee is expected to ask his or her own questions of Blasey Ford and Kavanaugh. 

What about the allegations from Deborah Ramirez?

Ramirez, who told The New Yorker magazine that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party when both were Yale freshmen, has not been called to testify at this hearing. Whether her allegations will be discussed by any of the senators during the hearing remains to be seen.
