Yep - pretty much the same thing in the relatively jazz-friendly city 
of Seattle.  KCTS is running it at 1 am on Sunday morning, but with 
multiple showings on HD TV.

TV is no friend of jazz.  You have to wonder why anyone would want to 
produce jazz tv shows if you have such trouble getting them aired - 
even on public tv!
