HDTV Listings for February 22, 2006

Kevin C. Tofel

What we're watching: It's time for the 12 guys on "American Idol" to show their stuff at 8 p.m. Last night, Randy Jackson thought that a male Idol would be crowned; after watching the women last night, we're not so sure: there seems to be more girls with talent than guys with talent in the final two dozen. Tune in to Fox for Idol in 720p. If the first hour doesn't grab you, you can still get sucked into the "Lost" phenomenon at 9 p.m. on ABC. The two-hour pilot episode is airing (again) tonight in 720p; be prepared to invest an hour of your life every week going forward if you dare.

Our traditional high-def listings continue below.
