Variety is reporting that James Gandofini (Tony Soprano) has dropped is lawsuit against HBO after a brief but very ugly and very public battle over per episode money for the hit mob drama The Sopranos on HBO. Gandolfini was reportedly making $400,000 per episode and wanted, according to some sources, as much as $2,000,000 per episode. That would have made him the most well paid actor on TV. Dollar figures were not disclosed in the report but it is save to assume that Gandolfini’s per-episode fees landed somewhere between the $600,000 HBO offered for Season Five and the astronomically high $2,000,000 fee Gandolfini was reportedly demanding.

For the first time, the standard analog and HDTV productions of the 2003 Masters Tournament will be unified and will provide 18-hole coverage in HDTV's highest definition format. In the largest HDTV production ever, CBS Sports will use 42 high definition cameras and 10 hand-held 16x9 standard definition cameras. The unified productions will be produced in HDTV's highest definition format, 1080i, and downconverted for the CBS Television Network's analog broadcast. This production technique also produces a better quality analog picture. Whether watching in widescreen HD or traditional 4x3 analog, viewers hear the same golf announcers and see the same camera angles, replays and graphics. The 2000 Masters was the first golf tournament presented live in HDTV on network television, and it is still the only major tournament broadcast in high definition.
