I really like the brushed black & white font used during the intro to HBO's 24/7 series. Any guesses as to what it might be?

EDIT:

In response to Phil's answer, 'Impact' isn't quite it. Notice the 'C' and 'S' characters, how the Impact curves are squared off, whereas the 24 7 font curves are more rounded:

Could you add an image or link so we know what you're referring to? –  MikeNGarrett Jan 22 '11 at 0:33

In addition, a dedicated font identification service will probably do better than here: new.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont –  Yi Jiang Jan 22 '11 at 11:08
    
@Yi - The auto tool doesn't really work but that forum's a great resource- Thanks, trying there too. new.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/forum/case/349559 –  Yarin Jan 23 '11 at 14:11

Looks like Titling Gothic, black.

@Jin- Think you nailed it. (Though the 'R' in 'Road' has a straight leg, unlike the 'R' in Pittsburgh and unlike Titling Gothic, so that tag line might be a diff font). Anyway thanks- great font! –  Yarin Jan 24 '11 at 13:25

I'd say Impact Bold Narrow or at least something just like it. Their version of it next to the specimens I see looks like it's a little lighter in weight, but still in the Bold range, and definitely Narrow.

@Phil- It's close, but see the edit to my question above- not quite it. –  Yarin Jan 23 '11 at 14:21
