Oh boy, more contradictory statistics:

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:

Estimates about the number of HDTV’s 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

Freaking NBC Seattle. The 1 show I want to see this week in HD, and they can't get it right. A pox on all their houses.

Roger cable. I don't know what Global does OTA ... don't care really, I don't think I've watched much of anything OTA in Ontario since sometime in the mid 1970's!

For me the only funny part was Mike Myers, when Kanye West bumped into him in the back hallways. I remember how confused Myers was when Kanye West went on his "Bush hates black people" rant during the Hurrican Katrina telethon.

Myers said something about his American citizenship being revoked after that episode.

I'll admit it looked funny ... if I had the slightest clue what they were talking about, it might well have beeen funny!
