To make sure it's not just my TV, I've checked it out on each of the HDTVs I own, from DLP LED to plasma, and on each one, the CBS 1080i broadcasts are just so much sharper, detailed, even brighter. I asked my old man and brother the same thing, and they all agree. It's not even close, IMHO. In fact, FOX's 720p broadcasts look borderline awful for an HD picture. The detail, sharpness, and crispness are just bad. I often think I'm watching an upconverted SD picture, if that.
Does FOX do something to their 720p broadcasts? I ask because I've seen ESPN's or some other sports broadcasts in 720p, and I could swear they're far better than FOX's.
I'm thankful my Steelers are in the AFC, so this means most of the time when they're broadcast on Sundays, it's on CBS. Sucks that tomorrow they'll be on FOX. BTW, I can stomach the pregame show in 720p, because SD, HD, 720p, or 1080i, FOX's NFL guys are the best!
BTW, I'm not including NBC (Sunday Night Football) or ESPN (Monday Night Football) here because those are single events, even though I believe NBC's broadcast is nice!
