HDTV Listings for March 2, 2006

Kevin C. Tofel

What we're watching: Every once in while do you get the urge to watch a marginal program just because it looks good in high-def? Until everything is available in 1080p, we still will too, and tonight is one of those nights. Was "The Chronicles of Riddick" a 2004 box-office smash? No. Was it another comic-book-y sci-fi wanna be? Yes. Do we expect it to look good in 1080i tonight at 7 p.m. on HBO-HD? You betcha, and that's why we'll be watching Vin Diesel tonight.

Our traditional high-def listings continue below.
