Any word on if or when "Family Feud" and "Judge Judy" will go HD in the near future? It's now three years since the switchover and those shows are still in SD.

That would involve investing money in those shows, and people who watch this crap don't care enough about HD to warrant the investment in new cameras.

Family Feud is crap? Have you seen it with Steve Harvey? He's freakin' hilarious.

A recent demographics study of the viewers of Judge Judy indicated that 81.7% didn't have access to HD displays; 62.4% had diminished vision; and 41.6% had early or advanced alzheimer's. Therefore, HD was deemed unnecessary.

In other words, I'm one of the youngest viewers.

I only wish he didn't relocate the show to Atlanta. I would have preferred he keep it in L.A.

Maybe you don't remember that you're actually old.

To each his own. When ever I see a promo or flip by the show I find Steve Harvey cringe induing, to me he is so annoying. Not a chance i hell I'd watch his version of the show. Over the years the hosts have been spotty, some good, some not so good, SH is bottom of the barrel for me.

But back of topic at this point there is no excuse for any newly produced show not to be in HD.

I didn't know I liked Steve Harvey either until I ACTUALLY WATCHED THE SHOW AND DIDN'T JUST JUDGE BEFORE EVEN TRYING HIM ON FOR SIZE. I think he's awesome and the show is also a lot pervier now too. Steve Harvey is bottom of the barrel? They actually had Al Borland hosting for a while. He was so bad. Zero personality. And before that I think it was Louie Anderson. Wow. You like those two people better than Steve Harvey. I have no words for that.

I will now step off of my Steve Harvey soap box.

I might start watching it again if they could somehow lure Richard Dawson out of retirement.

Add Hometime (on PBS) to the list. Although with the number of sub-channels our local PBS has it doesn't really matter.

"Year-over-year, the long-running game show, now hosted by Steve Harvey, is up 40 percent in its key women 25-54 demographic and has posted a 35 percent household gain compared with 2010."

Somebody must be watching since she makes approximately $30,000,000 per year.

CBS Morning News just did a segment on her a few weeks ago. Her salary was said to be closer to 45 million. There is certainly no room for HD cameras with so little money to work with.

he came back in the 1994-1995 and it was a disater. I doubt at the age of 79 he'd be very good.

I saw a YouTube interview of him recorded just this past year and he is definitely way past hosting "Family Feud" again. Doesn't look anything like he did in 1994-95.

Whatever. I'll just say that I upgraded to HD months before the switchover, I don't have diminished vision and I don't have Alzheimer's. On top of that, unlike the people in your demographic, I upgrade to the latest releases on my iMac (Mac OS, Office for Mac, Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composer etc.).

My parents still use Tiger on their iMac.
