I like The Unit.I also think CSI Miami looks fantastic, although I'm not a big fan of CSI. The color they use in that show is incredibly.

heroes and csi:miami are the bestlooking show in HD by far. nbc is definately the best network for hd. abc and epsn are the worst.

after those two shows, id say next comes house, 24,my name is earl and the office, in that order.

Las Vegas. Do I need to explain why?

There are so many great looking shows it's really hard to choose. Everything looks so much better in HD, even My Network TV is more entertaining. I do enjoy sports, and not just football. Forget a highlighted puck, the detail in a hockey game helped me enjoy watching the sport on TV more than I have in years.

Also it's subjective, but much like illegalprelude, kalel1974, bigsef3 seem to be pointing out, I do think I prefer 1080i channels (CBS + NBC) to 720p channels (FOX, ABC, etc.)

One other thing I do notice is that I like the look of shows with impressive scenery. I don't enjoy Men in Trees the way my girlfriend does, but have to admit the Alaskan background looks fantastic in HD.

I do have to give a special nod to PBS as a network. Not only do they give us stellar programming (both in look and content) but unlike most channels, the programming on 13 HD (NJ/NY) is all HD all the time.

I also agree, the Grammys did look VERY VERY nice. I was shocked.

Ive never seen Las Vegas so I cant comment on it

I love seeing Heroes in HD. Also Firefly looks really good in HD, but everything I've seen on Discovery HD Theater looks better than anything I've seen in HD broadcast.

Smallville on The CW generally looks pretty decent, and has some of the best SFX on a Broadcast show. CSI looks great with all they're helicopter shots of Vegas, not to mention the heightened range of colors. Most of the time my box is gonna be left on HBO in HD though... just finished Final Destination and while I can't say much for the movie other than it's ridiculously overblown deaths it certainly did look great in HD.
