Lion in jungleWhat we're watching: No more "American Idol", please! We're leaving "Idol" behind tonight and traveling far away (for us) to Africa at 8 p.m. instead. One of the oft-overlooked VOOM channels is EquatorHD, so it's our destination tonight. "Great Africa" is a 1080i, two-hour show that brings us stunning footage of large inhabitants from the jungles and deserts. More importantly, we'll see how lions and tigers and bears elephants (oh my!) are becoming driven from their natural habitat due to human expansion in Africa.

After the jump is our traditional listing of HD programs throughout the night.
