Al Gore and George W. Bush agreed last week to square off three times in October (Oct. 3, Oct. 11 and Oct. 17), adopting the schedule proposed by the Commission on Presidential Debates. The VP candidates will debate Oct. 5. All will be 9-11 p.m. NBC executives said the schedule will not affect their fall lineups. CBS and ABC will have to make adjustments.
