Do television shows still do clip shows? I don't think I've ever seen any clip show episodes in the era of high definition television.

Though it seems more common now for shows to start with a recap of previous episodes, showing clips from many past episodes to show things that the next episode has to do with (I guess to refamiliarize people with things from the past and to inform late arrival viewers), not just to reflect what happened in the last episode. Shows with narration also tend to show clips when some past character or thing comes up. I wouldn't count these as clip shows.
