confused by coverage of the US elections

Could someone enlighten me why the BBC1, ITV, BBC news 24 and Sky news are transmitting the US election results from 10pm this evening, i.e. 6/11/2012.

Surely at 10pm, it is 5pm Washington time and 3pm on the west coast ( I think). Now don't they have around a further 6 hours of voting time before the polls shut.

Do they, the news channels, have hours and hours of speculation, are the votes already cast released to give indications or would it be more feasible for them to broadcast at 10am the following morning.

I know the United States Presidential election is important to us and I am looking forward to the outcome but I will not be watching all night for what seems a lot of waffle.
