Letterman's Pet Tricks To Go HD



By Ken Kerschbaumer -- Broadcasting & Cable, 8/11/2005 1:26:00 PM


High-definition broadcasts of The Late Show with David Letterman will begin on Monday, Aug. 29, according to a show spokesman.



The show will be on a summer vacation from Aug. 15-29, giving technical crews two weeks to make sure the new technical facilities (which include a Sony HD production switcher) are up and working properly.



The Tonight Show with Jay Leno has been available in HD since 1999 and Late Night with Conan O’Brien joined the HD club last spring. Saturday Night Live and Last Call With Carson Daly make the switch this fall.

This is great news. They actually succeeded expectations that said this would happen in mid to late September.

I can stop watching Leno once and for all. :D


I hope it is true 16x9 just like Conan.

It better be, I mean just think of all the time they had to plan this out.

No, because we're not watching him.

I doubt it, I've heard Moonves hates letterbox.

Now we just need Craig Ferguson, Carson Daily, and Jimmy Kimmel in HD...

Thanks goodness. At least now I can choose between Letterman and Leno, and not just watch Leno, because it looks so much better.

This is great news indeed. I am ashamed to say that I have been watching Leno occasionally because he was in HD. Well, no more lame late night comedy for me. I will be front and center come Aug 29th to see Dave in his HD debut. :)

That will give me just enough time to watch all the shows I saved but never bothered to watch so I can wipe them out and make space for Dave.
