Here are the HDTV programs showing on some selected networks today, along with "what we're watching and why." All times are Eastern:

ABC: 8 Simple Rules (8 p.m.), Hope & Faith (8:30 p.m.), Less Than Perfect (9:30 p.m.)

CBS: JAG (9 p.m.), Numbers (10 p.m.)

NBC: Cross Jordan (10 p.m.),  The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (11:35 p.m.)

Fox: Arrested Development (8, 8:30, 9, 9:30 p.m.)

WB: What I Like About You (8 p.m.), Reba (9 p.m.)

ESPN-HD: Baseball Tonight (9:30 p.m.), SportsCenter (11 p.m.)

What we're watching
and why: This should be What we're not watching. How can 8 Simple Rules, a sitcom we all knew was destined for cancellation after its star died, be shown in HDTV when the Indy 500 was not? Shame, shame.
