A few years back, whilst visiting my brother in Dallas....who had the exact same Pioneer TV as me at the time, I saw what CBS, 1080i football really looked like. It was really sharp. None of the 1080i broadcasters here in Knockville can even touch that station. Well, maybe channel 7 did before the dark lord, RTV, eliminated any chance of good looking programing actually airing. All of our affiliates are 2nd rate for one reason or another, IMO. I can't point to an outstanding one.
It's been tough for 8 to maintain their dominance of the bottom rung but their performance of late has firmly cemented their position as a backwoods, who gives a flush, crappers.
It's hard to be worst in this market but 8 has what it takes, the wrong stuff!
