People say Veronica Mars was in HD (I also read somewhere that Kevin Hill will probably be HD too, would make sense).

I guess I'm not even a litttle surprised that CSI:NY beat Long in the Tooth and Order.

There is no difference in HDMI cables. If you can see the picture without visible dropouts or sparklies, the cable is working at 100%. No other cable will display a better version of that picture. You're simply wrong if you think there is a better digital cable than one that is already working.

It'll probably get worse when The West Wing returns as the L&O lead in next month, and with Hawaii apparently dying quickly, NBC could be in real trouble on Wednesdays

I find it interesting that both LAX and Hawaii were *heavily* promoted during the 2004 Olympics HD telecast.

Thanks fred this is still my fave thread on the board at the moment.

Why the heck is FOX waiting so long to roll out its sunday line-up?

And what is up with the Simpsons? How can you have a "new episode" on the 7th but a season premiere on the 14th? And will there not be a Halloween episode this year?

My sincere thanks to everyone who makes AVSforum such an awesome resource.

EXPLOSIVE TWO-HOUR SEASON PREMIERE OF '24' STARTS THE CLOCK ON A NEW DAY JAN. 3 ON FOX
Released by FOX

Series Moves to Monday Nights for 24 Episodes in a Row

FOX's award-winning series 24 returns for a fourth season of clock-stopping suspense beginning with an explosive season premiere of back-to-back episodes Monday, Jan. 3 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. The time period premiere will be Monday, Jan. 10 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

Kiefer Sutherland returns as Jack Bauer as the series shifts to Monday nights in 2005. The intense drama will unfold on a weekly basis without repeats or preemptions, from the pulse-pounding premiere to the heart-stopping season finale.

In season three of 24, Jack, who was in charge of a special field operations unit of the Counter Terrorist Unit, fought to stop a viral terrorism threat before it could kill millions of people.

Season four begins 18 months later with the episode "Day 4: 7:00 am – 8:00 am." CTU is now headed by Erin Driscoll (Alberta Watson, "La Femme Nikita"), a steely government agent who made firing Jack one of her first priorities upon taking over. After the explosion of a commuter train, Jack, who is now working for Secretary of Defense James Heller (William Devane, "Knots Landing") and also is romantically involved with his married daughter, Audrey (Kim Raver, "Third Watch"), suddenly finds himself heading back to CTU for a meeting with Driscoll on Heller's behalf.

Sheesh. When I read the thread last week about the 24 premiere on "Monday Jan 3rd at 8:00, moving to it's regular time slot at 9:00 the following week" it totally went over my head that the move to Monday nights was permanent. I misread that as meaning it would move back to Tues at 9:00 the following week . That's a drag. There is really nothing else on Tues nights that I look forward to.

Plus, now it conflicts with Everybody Loves Raymond and Two and a Half Men, IMO two of the best sit-coms on TV.

Is FX still going to show an encore the following night?

CBS.com says the premiere for 60 Minutes (formerly 60 Minutes II) was on 9/22, but current wording on CBSNews.com and a promo in TV Guide say it is this week on 9/29.

I think NBC has decided to show drama repeats instead of a Saturday Night Movie.

Also, thefutoncritic.com says the premieres of The King of Queens and Center of the Universe have been moved to October 20th.

During Sunday's "60 Minutes", they ran a promo of the Wednesday show, calling it "60 Minutes Wednesday". (Also of note, the featured heavyweight correspondent was Mike Wallace, not you-know-who).

NBC will apparently usually run drama repeats Saturday, but will sometimes air movies.

It's either called 60 Minutes Wednesday or 60 Minutes (Weeknight Edition).

More news from 24, this time from the New York Post Tuesday Sept 27th:

http://www.nypost.com/entertainment/30975.htm

TONY '24' BACK By COELI CARR, New York Post
September 28, 2004 -- THE last time viewers saw turncoat-agent Tony Almeida on "24," he was facing serious jail time for treason.
His reasons for siding with terrorists against the U.S. may have been understandable to save his kidnapped wife but fans of the Fox suspense show ended the season with the reasonable assurance that Tony was gone.
Turns out now that he's not forgotten. Tony Almeida's coming back this season.
The word several months ago was that many of the program's most pivotal characters would not be returning for the new season, which debuts January 3.
"I was always told there were going to be changes, but that I was always going to be coming back," actor Carlos Bernard told The Post, as he prepares to start production on the fourth season of "24" next week. "We had discussions about how the Almeida character was going to be brought back. I wanted to do another season, if the character was put in a new place."
Prison was the most likely place given his double dealing .
But this week Bernard is more focused on the story yet to be mined from Almeida's past.
"It's not so much about what you didn't find out about the character, it's more about the possibilities with the character," he said.
Bernard's mum on the fate of Almeida's wife, Michelle (Reiko Aylesworth), or even what episode he makes his entrance, saying that kind of advance information migth spoil things for viewers.
"My first impression from the script was 'I love it,' " Bernard said. "You can see change in the character over the third and fourth season, which is always fun to play. You have to fill in the holes of what happened. The way they introduced the character was very cool, in a way I didn't necessarily expect."
The show's producers, aware of the huge popularity some of the show's characters had with viewers, do want to bring those actors back in some capacity for the new season, said Fox spokesperson Chris Alexander, who was quick to add that the program, eager to not repeat itself with key characters whose story lines had run their course, didn't "want to be handcuffed to use the same group of actors."
The show had added some celebs, firing some sparks of their own to the cast, including Oscar-nominated actress Shohreh Aghdashloo, "Third Watch" Kim Raver as Kiefer Sutherland's love interest, and veteran actor William Devane as secretary of defense.

Well, 'Michelle' just did a one-shot on CSI, which I thought was strange... I couldn't tell if she was a real replacement or just a temp until the end!

Oh yeah I remember now. First FOX took to the bizarre tradition of showing halloween specials well after halloween, then they air the Simpson's Halloween first, then the "season premiere". What a screwy setup.

What is this "conflict" thing people keep tallking about?
