I liked that they are framing for 16:9.
I think they are still feeling out how to direct in widescreen, however.
Too many quick cut 2 shots, reaction shots and closeups, when this show would benefit from more 4 shots (5 when the Rolling Stone guy was out there).
I think that way you could watch the reactions of the entire panel.
I'm not saying stay on one wide shot the entire time, but I think they could utilize the screen real estate a little better and do less cuts.
I realize it was the first show in widescreen, and it's live, and they've been away for awhile, so I don't mean to sound overly critical. I think they'll grow into it.
I've been hoping they would go HD for some time now, and I'm glad they finally did.
