Tonight the Powerball jackpot is reaching at least $455 million. More and more people are participating, and with the jackpot getting this big, you’ll likely want to watch the drawing live as it happens. But what time is the drawing going to happen and how can you watch it on TV tonight? We have all the details below that you’ll need on the Powerball time, what TV stations to watch, when the drawing will take place, and more. Please note that sometimes, TV channels that are supposed to show a live broadcast of the drawing decide not to broadcast it after all. If your channel did not broadcast the live drawing, you might want to keep a window open on your computer so you can watch the livestream.

The Powerball drawing is every Wednesday and Saturday night at 10:50 p.m. Eastern (9:59 p.m. Central.) The drawing is going to be broadcast on different networks depending on where you live. Different stations, like ABC, CBS, and FOX are broadcasting the drawing depending on your region. These channels may be updated, so please see Powerball.com for the latest information. Not all cities are showing it live and Powerball doesn’t have listings for every state, so we added additional information as we were able to find it. If your city doesn’t have a live broadcast, you can still livestream it online. To find your city, just look for your state in the alphabetical list below and see if your city is listed beneath. As the jackpot gets larger, more and more local TV stations will be showing the drawing live.
