    Anybody see Dave? Tonight, the second in HD, they had the "High Definition Celebrity Walk On" They had Regis come out and stand right in the very left of the frame so he could only be seen on the HD broadcast. Perfect!

    Yes, I happened to catch it while channel surfing. It was clever.

    I sure hope that they quickly get up to speed on their graphics in HD for this show. Letterman kept kidding about how great everything looked in HD. Too bad that a lot of the jokes were on him when what he was talking about (like the "Top Ten List" animation) actually wasn't HD at all.

    I'm glad that Letterman is finally in HD. The Top 10 animation can catch up later.

    Hmm. It looks like my local CBS station forgot to flip the HD switch - they showed it last night in SD. Monday was in HD.

    Well the first night they had a skit that was not HD and the top ten list was in 4:3. Last night i did miss the opening of the top ten list so I don't know about that, but the actual list was 16:9 unlike the first night. And the little skit with Biff was HD. So things did improve from night one to night two.

    I don't like some of the new graphics they've started using. The Top ten list font just looks wrong, visually unappealing, and the opening credit lists of the guests aren't that great either.

    Here in NZ, we don't have HD broadcasts, so I was watching the SD version, and I have to say I think "HD Celebrity Walk-On" was probably a funnier joke in SD than HD.
