Set your timers, the 2014 State of the Union is tonight, Tuesday, Jan. 28 at 9:00 p.m. EST.
The address will be broadcasted live on ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, PBS, CNN, CNBC, MSNBC and FOX News as well as streamed on various websites (including PolicyMic) and the White House's Facebook, YouTube and Google+ pages. If history is any guide, you can probably expect the speech to last about one hour.
