Jimmy Kimmel dives face first into HD - VIDEO

talk show host Jimmy KimmelDoes the thought of this face in 720 lines of crystal clear resolution make the soup you had for lunch a week ago rise in your gullet?

If so (you extremely shallow human being who will spend life alone until you die), then you'll be pleasantly surprised to learn that Jimmy Kimmel's first foray into high definition television was quite an improvement.

He even showed his viewers just how beautiful the difference was by making the switch live on the air during Tuesday night's episode.

It might be a little hard to see on a computer screen compared to your HD TV, but it's clear enough on television that all of its HD goodness shines through on even the dingiest computer screen. Even your grandfather's analog TV with the turnstyle dial that requires the grip of a vulture's talons to change the channel can pick up the difference.

It's actually scary how good it looks, especially for a late night show. If Conan O'Brien picks up on this when his new show premieres in the summer, his Sahara-strength paleness could give me a cataract.

I think Conan was one of the first ones to make the switch to HD, at least he was the only one with the widescreen format for standard definiton.

"It's actually scary how good it looks, especially for a late night show." Jeez, Danny, oversell much ?!

Leno and Letterman having been doing HD forever, and Jimmy Fallon started off with it so it's about time that Kimmel got with the program, instead you praise it like he's the first out with it, wtf ?!

That's great that Jimmy Kimmel is now in HD. I think more people will watch! Now if CBS would spend the money to have Craig Ferguson and the Late Late Show in HD I'd be really happy.
