The State of the Union Address stands to be the most-watched speech Joe Biden will deliver all year. SOTU provides the sitting president with an opportunity to sway the electorate, something that's traditionally done with a rundown of the administration's major accomplishments and vision of the future. However, the overwhelming topic of interest at this edition is Biden's mental faculties.

CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, ABC, NBC and CBS are showing the 2024 State of the Union Address live. CNN, Fox News and MSNBC will also provide in-depth analysis — and viewers abroad can watch their preferred coverage from anywhere with a VPN.

A series of high-profile blunders have raised serious doubts about the proficiency of a man who will turn 82 shortly after the 2024 presidential election for a further four years in office. His likely opponent in said election, Donald Trump, will be 78 in June and has made numerous gaffes himself, but it's Biden who's under the microscope on Thursday.

The state of the economy, reproductive rights and the war between Ukraine and Russia are expected to form the backbone of his speech, though the administration had been banking on Biden reining in Israel’s military operations in Gaza, where more than 30,000 civilians have died. That has not materialized.

He excelled at last year's State of the Union Address by taking on his Republican hecklers, but given the context, it's a high-wire act that could backfire spectacularly if it went wrong.
