Just the usual annual heads up again.

The show was held yesterday, and will be aired on CBSHD Tuesday Dec 4 at 10PM. According to this article, it was VERY good.

And from that article with its slide show, we have a wonderful tease from Candice.

Looks very very colorful.

Good part about this show is we dont have to suffer thru seeing more fat chix on tv even though the chubbychasers will give you that "these girls need a sandwich" line as usual.

I wonder if this year's show has been optimized to minimize compressibility and maximize MPEG artifacts like previous years? This coupled with the general trend of OTA stations degrading their broadcast bitrates is likely to make it a mess.

Just a reminder:

Big name talent perform along side the angels: Rihanna, Justin Bieber, and Bruno Mars. The angels are going to tower over Justin. lol

Don't know if any of you saw this, but on Twitter and other mediums as well, CBS' "The NFL Today" got raked over the coals for doing what appeared to be a 'normal' program, in light of the KC Chiefs player murder/suicide that occurred on Saturday. They opened with normal graphics and music, a silly little Garmin GPS promo on set, and having one of the Victoria's Secret models working with the guys doing the picks segment. They didn't delve into the subject for five full minutes at the top of the show.

Fox and ESPN (and other pre-game shows) on Sunday did away with their usual silly bits to concentrate on this story.

Actually I'd rather see that than Justin Bieber, Bruno Marrs and Rhianna ... CBS has jumped the shark with this "entertainment" .

Bruno is pretty tiny too; the Biebster's probably taller than him. Rihanna might actually be the tallest of the three of 'em.

Most of that issue can be alleviated by substitution of the program audio. I can think of some titles for an appropriate playlist.

How can you tell the bit rate prior to buring to Blu-Ray? And I take it that the 17-18Mbps is a composite since the Mbps varies during the show. Tx.

Examine the recorded file with software on your computer, or get real-time statistics from a TV-tuner card.

Is it true that people only watch this kind of show for the crashes?
