>Here's where and when to catch all the excitement as the Democrats gather in Atlanta to pick a Vice President:

THE NETWORKS From Monday, July 18 through Thursday, July 21, the convention will preempt prime time from 9-11 p.m. and generate the usual evening-news and morning-show overkill.

CNN The all-news net provides hourly reports from 6 a.m. to 1:30 a.m., with full coverage whenever the convention is in session.

PBS MacNeil-Lehrer Newshour gives you depth each evening and Washington Week in Review gives you gab at 11 p.m.

C-SPAN The no-frills net provides wall-to-wall, gavel-to-gavel coverage plus call-in shows from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. each day.
