On September 8, 2008, a year after my visit to Entertainment Tonight, at Stage 28, at Paramount Pictures. Entertainment Tonight began to air in high definition with the move of the program from its longtime home at Stage 28 on the Paramount Pictures studio lot to Stage 4 at CBS Studio Center.

Dr. Phil’s stage was next to the Entertainment Tonight stage, until September 2008, when CBS relocated it for high-definition broadcast.
