HDTV Listings for September 17, 2006


What we're watching: Tonight we finally say goodbye forever to UPN and The WB from our HDTV listings. With MyNetworkTV already broadcasting in many areas and The CW launching on the 20th, the time has come. We expect to add The CW when they begin broadcasting while we'll need to think about MyNetworkTV, right now they only have two shows (Desire & Fashion House) which are both horrifically bad. Our need to list high definition programming vs. our need to ignore these two shows like the plague has left us very conflicted. Tonight however, we have no such issues, NBC Sunday Night Football continues with Dallas at Washington while Fox brings a new episode of The War at Home. The Red Sox and the Yankees continue their grudge match on ESPN-HD and HDNet contributes a double shot of Ice-T, on Sound Off with Matt Pinfield and later in concert with group Sex, Money & Guns.

Our traditional high-def listings continue below.
