Tonight, Greece’s parliament will undertake a no confidence vote in prime minister George Papandreou and his government. If the parliament votes no, then Papandreou’s government will fall, and the country may be forced to go back to the public and vote in an entirely new parliament.The vote is expected for around midnight Athens time or 5PM ET.

As of right now, it is expected Papandreou will win, and markets are apparently rallying in anticipation.

While it is likely CNBC and Bloomberg will cover the vote live on television, if you want a more on the ground look in, you can watch live Greek TV here:
