Start the 3D TV Revolution Without Me

3D_TV_watching_glassesTechnology is a marvelous thing, right? No, no, this is not a story about the Apple iPad coming out this weekend or the wonders it promises to bring -- just ask Phil Dunphy. He called it the first day of the rest of your life.

But no, the technology that has me scratching my head is 3D television. That's right, the state-of-the-art, mind-blowing idea that you will be able to watch television in a way you never have before. Bigger than a big screen. Better than high definition. More powerful that a home theater sensurround experience.

Next weekend, if you have invested in a first generation 3D TV for about $2,500, you'll be able to watch the Masters Golf Tournament in 3D. And you had better spend on the glasses, too, because not all sets are sold with the spectacles that make the 3D possible in the first place. Funny, you would think that the glasses were included, but apparently not. It's like some computers that ship without a power cord. Are you kidding me?

NFL to try 3D football broadcast live on Sunday

3-D_viewing_50s_glassesImagine if you will that you have a ticket to the amazing new monolithic football megaplex, Cowboys Stadium, this Sunday to watch the Dallas Cowboys play the San Diego Chargers. It's two probable playoff teams. It's a potential offensive showcase with two strong-armed quarterbacks. It's got everything to recommend it and you have a ticket.

Now, how excited are to learn that you can watch the game in 3D? That's right, when you enter the venue, you'll be handed 3D glasses. The Cowboy-Charger game will then be broadcast on the huge HD screen in 3D. That's the big screen that hangs over the field. Every play will immediately be converted from HD to 3D with some exciting new technology created in Edison, New Jersey. If you're at home, you won't see 3D, but if you're there, you can wear glasses just like these folks in the picture.

Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip: 4am Miracle

by Jay Black, posted Feb 20th 2007 7:02AM
Is this the last review? Check back on a date TBD...(S01E16) I knew all week that this might be the last Studio 60 we'd ever see on NBC, so I had two really clever opening lines prepared. If this week's episode was terrible, I'd open up with: "Not with a bang, but with a whimper." If it was really good, I was going to open with, "Not with a whimper, but with a bang!"

I think it's obvious why I get paid the big blogging bucks.

So which line did I decide to go with? The answer after the jump...

Ashleigh Banfield signs on to host Hollywood Heat

Ashleigh BanfieldIt's amazing how people's careers can develop. Think about it: did anyone who saw Meredith Vieira on 60 Minutes seventeen years ago think she was going to end up hosting Today and Millionaire? Exactly. So, post-9/11, when men were drooling over NBC's Ashleigh Banfield and her glasses as she paraded around Afghanistan, did anyone think she'd be hosting a show discussing the cross between celebrity and the justice system?

Probably not. But that's what's happening, as she has signed up to host CourtTV's Hollywood Heat, taking over for Lynne White. She joined the network in July 2005, after her profile at NBC was reduced during 2003 and 2004. She will still co-host Banfield & Ford: Courtside with Jack Ford. But, don't worry, librarian-lovers: she'll still be wearing those signature horn-rimmed frames. That alone might get me to watch.
