I was watching Wheel on Tuesday and while distracted by the kids, Pat Sajak said something about high definition. My daughter said he said it was "coming soon". Did anyone else hear this?

Yeah I saw that. I had to laugh because it was about 1 minute of the 6 total minutes I've seen of that show in my life. I had just turned to that channel because the ABC HD begins right after it. But anyway Pat was having a conversation at the end with a cameraman but you could only hear Pat. He said something like " Hey, are those new cameras..Oh High Definition... Are we braodcasting in HD now?... Oh, in the future.... ok"

If it is in HD then the local channel here in L.A. will quit streching the 4x3 image and Vanna will not look so fat.

I don't watch Wheel of Fortune but I rarely miss its sister show, Jeopary! . However, I can't see how either of these could benefit in the least by being in HD. Don't get me wrong, I love HD and still find myself sometime watching something that I normally wouldn't because of it. However, there are a few shows where it's not really going to add a thing, and these are two of those shows.

Actually, there were small snippets of both shows shown in true HD in an episode of "King of Queens" some time ago. Doug had a dream that he was on both shows. The HD quality was GREAT.
