Looking at the clips on the shows website they look 16:9.
Is the show taped in HD?

I wonder if the the reason show is not being broadcast in HD on WNBC-DT is because of the same issue The Ellen Show has with WB Studios distribution?

I was told by someone who works at a station that carries this show that is being made in available in 16x9 SD, but not HD.

It looks widescreen SD to me, and I have no doubt this show will be cancelled, because frankly she makes a lousy talk show host.

Hum well we don't get Bonnie Hunt in 16:9 SD or Ellen in HD yet on WNBC-DT.

Watching this show is like watching paint dry. She's almost as bad a talk show host as Chevy Chase (if such a thing is possible).

I don't know what it is, but I've been a Bonnie fan for years. I always loved her on Letterman and in movies. So I have been dvr'ing her daytime show since it started on NBC OTA. It has been 4x3 since it started. Well, today I turn it on and it's 16x9... So all this time my local NBC has been clueless???

EDIT: Well, I guess they did it on accident or something because it's back to 4x3

Last time I checked, it was 4x3 on WEWS in Cleveland. Which is odd, since this channel shows every syndicated HD show they carry in HDTV.

First time watching today and it is 16:9, but PQ is not exactly stellar. Also, most of the accompanying commercials are s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d to fill the screen; what gives?

The commercials are probably stretched because the show is presented in squeezed 16:9. I've seen it on WEWS once or twice where it was 4:3, but the people look tall and skinny. Stretching it corrects the squeezed widescreen but the 4:3 commercials get the TNT effect.
