    Looks like some new twists this year.

    Also, it appears that they have finally upgraded their equipment to HD. The HD tag in the guide seems to confirm this.

    I hope so. Now we just need TVGN in HD so we can watch after hours.

    BBAD is probably the reason we still watch the show. Timers set.

    I sometimes fall asleep watching After Hours on Showtime 2 but they play that loud station ID thing loud as hell and it wakes me up. haha

    But it's usually pretty boring. They just whisper the hole time and cut away when something good is going down.

    Also it almost seems is they used a modeling agency to cast the girls this year. They are pretty much all stunners IMO.

    I record all episodes for my wife. She watches every minute of them the next day. In addition she has me print out the minute-by-minute log of everything said and unsaid over the previous 24 hours. It's become a summer tradition here and one that requires preparation (timers, paper, ink, staples, website access, etc.). The only thing she doesn't want are the Live Feeds.

    Sweet it will finally be in HD. Looks like they moved after dark to a different channel which is a bummer. Really only watched it if something was stirring up the house. Hoping the new twists are good. This show really depends on the cast though if they get good drama this show is always great. Loved the Shima russell blow up a few years ago and the Americas player twist was great also. Can't wait to watch tomorrow night :)

    Not in HD here in Atlanta, though the guide has an HD tag.

    Thinking back to last season and I think the same thing happened :( Oh well, can't say that I blame them, that would be pretty expensive to replace EVERY camera

    Yet they can spend millions on the NFL. HD cameras aren't that expensive nowadays. Ridiculous.

    I watched last night's season opener ... it really hasn't changed much from previous seasons. This year's twist will be fun to follow.

    I have the first episode of BBAD in the can, but I'm afraid to watch it. Scuttlebutt has it that they are censoring the show. If that's the case, then I'll stick with the broadcast eps and ignore BBAD. I'm also hearing that the Live Feeds are (a) censored, and ( b ) not so Live.

    Season 15 may be their last, unless they fix it soon.

    This is the most popular show in its time slot CBS can afford to replace the cameras. HD cams are cheap now compaired to years ago. Surprised they never replaced the cameras. thinking they may not want that levil of Detail haha. Who are peoples favorites this season?? Routing for Andy (he is from my town) and the pizza guy is classic should be a great season.

    The fact that this show is still in SD is just absolutely ridiculous. What a disappointment.

    Also the after hours on TVGN is worthless. The SD and editing for language have rendered it completely un-watchable.
