I live in Wichita, Kansas and the KoQ is being shown in HD on our CW affiliate (KSCW). It started back in March. Another syndicated show being shown in HD is Boston Legal, and that is on our CBS affiliate (KWCH) on the weekends. And from what I heard, Bones, The Office, Grey's Anatomy (all will start syndication this fall) will be shown in HD as well.
