Yes.  Three of our five CBS shows are already working in 1080p/24.  The
other two will join them as soon as the facility they're using has the
capability (perhaps for the back nine).  Today, "Becker" became the first
of our shows to deliver to CBS by downconversion to 60i from 24p.  It's
not perfect (what is), but it's working right now.  In future seasons, as
other customers order HDTV, those shows will be made by downconversion to
whatever they want from 1080p/24 common sides.
