Haha, I am sure it's a big job to take it apart, build a temp set in the newsroom, and build a new set. Although it will look great I am sure when you all build one. Thankfully Centerpointe hasn't been build yet, would of had to change out the backdrop on the set, so you all are safe for a few more years haha.

Cool! I look forward to some HD on MeTV.

Looks great! I noticed that a few days ago.

I wish the remaining local SD channels would at a minimum deliver 16x9 SD. In particular, 56.2 and 56.3 - on 2 different tv's they look like old anamorphic DVDs (squished in from the sides) - and one of them is a recent 32" Sceptre (cheapo from walmart). 46.2 & 46.3 would also work better as 16x9SD - most everything I notice on 46.2 looks wide screen anyway so not sure why they don't just deliver it as 16x9.

Nice! Not in HD I guess? 18.2 looks good though.

It's the trifecta:

18.1: 1080
18.2: 720
18.3: SD
