    Does anyone know if there is a list that shows the dates when specific shows will begin broadcasting in HD in the future?

    Not sure what you are asking? Do you have specific shows in mind?

    The Biggest Loser in specific, but primetime shows in general.

    I doubt anyone has made a list, but sources like IMDB.com and Wikipedia often have information about when a show might transition to HD and/or 16x9.

    The only prime time shows on the networks that may not have converted yet are so called "reality shows" and some (or portions of) the news shows. Everything else in prime time on the networks is in HD.

    Survivor just went HD. The issue is cost for remote HD equipment. The purpose of the reality shows is to supply the network with an extremely cheap hour of prime time programming... so it is a cost issue. Eventually they will all be in HD.

    My suggestion is to create your own guide at TitanTV.com - choose your provider, customize your lineup, and then filter by HD. It will then only show HD programming and you can easily filter out non-HD items.

    FutonCritic.com also has on their front page each day a list of new programming in primetime, but it doesn't indicate whether it's HD or not, but you'd at least have something to check against TitanTV or your own provider's grid guide.
