The Circus: Episode 16 (S7EP16 Showtime Sunday November 13, 2022)



Episode 16

The Circus: Inside The Greatest Political Show on Earth this Sunday has a special one-hour episode exploring the historic midterm elections in which Democrats defied expectations by fending off a Republican red wave. The episode will wrap up the show’s seventh season.

Errin Haines, editor-at-large for The 19th, and Tim Miller, writer-at-large for The Bulwark, join hosts John Heilemann, Mark McKinnon, and Jennifer Palmieri to discuss a whirlwind election week.

The programme travelled across the country to capture the closing arguments from both sides and an election night that shocked the country.
