Anybody know what the deal is why NBC broadcasts this show in "semi-widescreen" (surrounded by black bars on all four sides) on its high-def channels (e.g. KNTV)? It's clearly done in 16:9 but not broadcast as such! Sort of puts all your hard-earned money you spent for a HDTV set to shame...

This is not unique to KNTV. WB wants NBC to pay extra for HD broadcast of West Wing. NBC hasn't paid (or hasn't found a sponsor who would foot the bill) so we are stuck with this ridiculous presentation.
