By Swanni

Washington, D.C. (June 30, 2009) -- High-Definition TVs are now in more than 30 million U.S. homes and there are scores of high-def programming choices.

But which shows should you watch? And why?

Every day here at TVPredictions.com, I scan the HD programming aisles and serve up 10 programs so good -- so hot! -- that you can't miss them. Sports, movies, primetime comedies and drama -- they're all there and in beautiful high-def.

We call this list, "The Hottest Shows in HDTV!" And here they are for Tuesday, June 30, 2009: (All times Eastern -- and don't forget the link below to today's 'HD Hottie -- in fact, today there are 5 of them!

2. Legally Blonde
Reese Witherspoon stars as a prissy sorority Queen who enrolls in Harvard to impress her former boyfriend. Of course, it doesn't take long for Reese to discover that true love can be found elsewhere on campus in the person of Luke Wilson. The predictable plot, though, is lifted by strong performances from both Witherspoon and Wilson. Salma Blair also delivers the funny as a stuck-up student, the role she was born to play.
