    My 'guide' tells me that the comedy channel is in HD but my well cailbrated eyes say other wise. Both Jon Stewart and Colbert were not in HD last night even though the side of the screen and guide listing had the 'HD' symbol....what gives???!?!? The formating stayed in 4:3 the entire time on my Vizio 16:9.:nono2:

    At least they're not giving us stretch-o-vision.

    Krod Mandoon and the Larry the Cable Guy Roast were both in HD. So CC does has some HD (just like most of the other HD channels).

    For some strange reason, when scrubs was on NBC, those episodes were not in HD. Since moving to ABC they have. I am thinking the shows on Comedy central were the older ones thus no HD.

    When Comedy Central launched their HD version, they announced that the studio changes for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report wouldn't be ready until next year. So until then we get pillar boxed lads, but full strength SD instead of watered down. Looks much better. :)

    Cheers,
    Tom

    Interestingly, Daily Show shows the regular bug and Colbert Report shows the HD bug. (At least on DIRECTV, I have no reason to think Dish is any different.)

    South park is also in hd, and some unknown comedian was on in hd the other night.
    They do have hd , unlike bet-hd which has NO hd.

    I think that's Colbert's (persona) EGO. :)

    I know my Luddite streak is showing but could someone quickly explain the benefits of being able to see Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert in HD?:grin:

    I've seen quite a bit of HD so far, and there's no stretch-o-vision to boot!

    I feel like you are arguing for the sake of arguing, but personally I think EVERYTHING is better in HD. :)

    Scrubs was produced in SD until this season, when it was moved to ABC. ABC insisted on an HD production, against the wishes of the show's production staff, who would have preferred to finish the show's run in SD for consistancy. I'm personally happy that it's in HD this season, but don't count on seeing any of the old NBC shows in HD.

    As others mentioned, The Daily Show and Colbert Report are still being produced in SD until their new HD studios will be ready sometime in 2010.

    "Good answer... Good answer.... I like the way you think. I'm gonna be watching you." (Name the movie.) :)

    Seeing "them" in HD isn't perhaps as much fun as seeing many scantily clad women in HD, but the wider screen could make some fun (when they start using it). :)

    Cheers,
    Tom
