There must be a primary somewhere that I didn't hear about, 'cuz ER isn't in HD.

The Not Broadcasted Correctly network strikes (out)... AGAIN!

Ken H, could you please use your contacts in the network engineering stratosphere to get an NBC engineer in here to explain why his network constantly flubs HD?

If I had to guess, I bet its because of the last minute edit to remove the scene talked about in other threads.

I was thinking the same thing, but with all the people and resources they have, they couldn't have edited the HD copy??

Ah - you answered my question! I was beginning to wonder if the severe weather alerts were causing the sd feed on the local DTV OTA feed. I was beginning to get a little worried about not getting the Daytona 500 in HDTV...

This is emblematic of NBC's complete lack of commitment to HD. It is also symbolic of the USA's fear of breasts.
Which one is sicker I don't know?

I know I probably haven't really noticed because I can't get ABC or CBS in HD but seems like all the posts about problems in this forum revolve around NBC programming. How come CBS and ABC can get it together, yet if the wind is blowing NBC seems to not be able to deliver HDTV programming without major problems at times?

I received official word from NBC in Milwaukee.

It is indeed due to the last minute 'Nipplegate' edit.

Thanks, Janet.

Yeh, but in this case, they were 80-year old ones. :eek:

Did anyone watch Friends tonight? How can NBC decide that 20 jokes about Danny DeVito's manhood are appropriate at 8pm, but a one second shot of an 80 year-old breast (shown in the context of a freaking medical procedure) is inappropriate after 10:45pm (which is when the scene was to have aired)?

Honestly, I don't get it. NBC is pathetic for their judgment and pathetic for their complete lack of commitment to HDTV.

As of 10:30EST, still No HD via WLWT-DT Cincinnati or WKEF-DT Dayton .. Obviously ...

Couldn't they at least have removed the "Available in Hi-Defintion banner at beginning of show?

Let me guess, the last minute re-edit of one of the scenes in tonight's show caused the HD master to have to be scrapped!

Boy, a half second blurred out, and because of that, no HD. If they couldn't make the change to both versions, why not just air the unedited one in HD? I mean, the way they treat their HD viewers, they already must think there aren't very many, so what difference would it make to them?

I can honestly say that (the cover-up) was pathetic. I think at 10:41PM on a school night if you are letting your young kids watch ER, your not a responsible parent.

As I have argued in the past NBC has the resources to produce the Tonight Show with Jay Leno in HD on a daily basis and then turn it around for air in only hours.

There are no excuses for NBC except they are poor problem solvers and poor planners. They talked about this for a week. In a whole week they could have remastered the single program segment in HD which they planned to air. If there is a letterbox version on the air then the HD master has already been re-edited by WB for NBC. NBC simply couldn't be bothered to do it right. HD is just too much trouble for them!

I think it's just another lazy excuse by NBC to not pass HD. Here in Denver my NBC affiliate claims that they are the leader in HDTV. What a joke.

I just e-mailed NBC at ER@nbc.com to complain about this. They could have at least just shown that segment in SD, rather than neuter the whole show to appease the puritanical sheep that apparently make up the American viewing public these days.

This country is so confused and hyprocritcal it makes me sick.

We got to see Romano's arm severed in full HD glory, but 3 seconds of nipples on a dying patient laying on the table, oh my, it is just *TOO MUCH* for the american public.

Why does NYPD Blue get to show a bare ass four to five times per season at the same time slot and not have to sensor it? What about National Geographic shows where they'll be *studying* some indigenous, non-white peoples with nothing covering their breasts for an hour?

What exactly is it that is so feared by the female mammary glands in this country. Is it horny 15 year old boys? What, they can't find pornographic material on the Internet in like 5 seconds?

Most other countries have no problem showing breasts on TV, but yet they edit US shows for violence. With good reason. We'd much rather expose our children to killling and death at 8 years old, but they see a nipple and they are going straight to hell I guess.

"The U.S. teenage birth rate is the highest in the developed world: twice as high as England’s, three times as high as Australia’s, four times as high as Germany’s, six times as high as France’s, eight times as high as the Netherlands’, and 15 times as high as Japan’s (Annie E. Casey Foundation, 1998; Berne & Huberman, 1999)."

And that was *without* children ever being exposed to a bare breast for 1 second on the Superbowl half-time show. Oh no, I bet that rate is going TRIPLE now!!

I'm not saying we *should* have nudity on TV, of course not. Then again, at 10pm ET, what difference is a 2 seconds of a nipple compared to 2 seconds of an ass shot? What difference does any of this make? It is all so stupid.

Oh, and for all our US *public morals*, we rank 9th in rapes per capita:

1. South Africa 1.21 per 1000 people
2. Montserrat 0.83 per 1000 people
3. Australia 0.8 per 1000 people
4. Seychelles 0.8 per 1000 people
5. Canada 0.75 per 1000 people
6. Zimbabwe 0.49 per 1000 people
7. Jamaica 0.49 per 1000 people
8. Dominica 0.34 per 1000 people
9. United States 0.32 per 1000 people

Again, how has shielding the TV watching public from mammaries done for us so far?

If there is anyone from the FCC reading this, I'm sure you are totally confused, so please visit this web site:
mammary.nih.gov


Sorry, I apologize for the long post, but this all really has pushed me over the edge. :confused:
