HDTV Listings for April 17th, 2006


What we're watching:What About Brian gives it another go, with tonight's oddly labeled "premiere" thats actually the second episode. I agree with TV Squad that it is trying to be another Grey's Anatomy but I don't know if viewers will find it as interesting. Hot mid-20's doctors vs.some average looking married guys confused about their lifestyle, you make the choice. We're ok with it as long as it doesn't come on at the same time as 24, because Jack Bauer would kill that Brian guy and then ask his friend's fiancee out for drinks (as long as she's not a terrorist).

Since we still don't have an HD-DVD or Blu-ray player yet, we'll probably be watching The Rock at 9 p.m. on HBO
