HDTV Listings for January 18, 2006

Kevin C. Tofel

What we're watching: Ouch! Our ears are still hurting from the American Idol wannabe's from last night. I don't think we can take the second day of auditions, so we'll pass on that. Instead, we're gearing up early for March Madness with a top-notch tip-off at 7 p.m. on ESPN-HD. Number 14 North Carolina State takes on top-ranked Duke in 720p. This ACC match up is likely a preview of what we'll see in March. If you're wondering what "March Madness" is all about, then we're recommending "Million Dollar Baby" for you. Tune in to HBO-HD for this 4-time Oscar winner in 1080i at 7:45 p.m.

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