8H is also used for Carson Daily's show, so expect to see him in HD as well.

Oh boy, more contradictory statistics:

Quote:
It is estimated that of the 105 million TV homes in the U.S., little more than 6 million have HDTV sets. But that number is expected to grow to around 16.2 million by 2008, according to the Consumer Electronics Association, an industry trade group.
Yet, we have this from hugh's series:

Quote:
Estimates about the number of HDTVís in the US and Canada vary widely, but typically most estimates suggest that approximately 40% of North American households will have HD capable sets in their home by the end of 2007.
Maybe the former meant a little more than 6 million people are watching HDTV in the US?

Too bad. According to this site, HD will probably be dead long before October :P So none of us will ever see SNL in HD. Too bad they wasted all that money on all those new cameras.

I wonder what Rogers is going to do with all those soon-to-be-useless HD boxes?

Will Ferrell was the only reason to watch SNL in the past 10 years.. I don't know how a show could be so consistently unfunny for so long and still be on the air. Let's hope that the move to HD improves the writing, too!

Was a repeat tonight, Will Ferrell was actually hosting. No HD.

It'll be interesting to see the detail or lack there off of the sets they slap together.

Well, it was in HD. Both on NBC and Global.

Still wasn't very funny though ... they've been struggling for a quarter-century now! :-)

Where are you getting Global HD? Not OTA I am guessing

I thought the only funny part was Steve Carrel's opening song & dance number
