With just under a month to go before Election Day, nominees Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump square off tonight in the second Presidential debate from Washington University in St. Louis. Moderated by CNN’s Anderson Cooper and ABC’s Martha Raddatz, the second standoff between Trump and Clinton will take the form of a town hall. The debate will be divided into six 15 minute segment. Topics on the agenda include immigration, national security, health care and more.

Once again, Hollywood is expected to be out in full force. Both the first Presidential debate and the Vice Presidential debate drew some priceless commentary from the likes of Patton Oswalt, Shonda Rhimes, Lena Dunham and more, and there’s no reason to think tonight will buck the trend. After a week full of tabloid headlines — Trump and those lewd comments, Hillary and those Wikileaks documents — tonight’s debate seems like it’s going to be even more dramatic than last time.

Check out a roundup of Hollywood reactions below.
