The Definition of Fake News
When the Daily Show and Colbert Report started broadcasting in HD on Jan. 4, Canadian viewers were left holding the SD bag.
We knew the Comedy Network – which airs the shows at the same time as Comedy Central in the US – isn’t HD. But what about CTV, which airs the shows an hour later, and broadcasts everything in HD?
Had I held my breath, I may still be alive, because Monday night’s shows both appeared in glorious HD on CTV affiliates. While I’ll find it hard to get out of the habit of watching the early editions, I gotta say, it looks pretty slick after midnight. Particularly Colbert, with the new set and vivid lighting, is worth waiting for – especially with the current bloodshed elsewhere at 11:35 to keep you occupied.
