I don't watch either show. I got behind on DH and the Thanksgiving that the A-holes decided at the last minute to extend the episode by 10 minutes, resulting in my missing the last ten minutes. I then told ABC to f**koff (politely in e-mail) that I was not going to watch the series anymore because of that stupid stunt. I wasn't home, so I couldn't do anything about it. You don't pull that crap when people are away and doing Thanksgiving, not watching GA, but instead DVR/PVRingit for later viewing.
In any event, I can capture some of this week's finale and compare the 35Mbps video with my local affiliate video, who in the parent company's wisdom, now has TWO damn sub-channels. While it won't be the same as what ABC is doing to their O&Os, it will have the same feel.
