Two of Comedy Central's signature shows are finally making the jump to high definition. The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report will flip the HD switch Monday, Jan. 4 2010.
Since announcing the channel would be going HD last January, Comedy had said it would be up-converting The Daily Show and Colbert Report until they could go fully native.
The holdup was the long process of updating the control rooms, while continuing to put on a program four times a week.
I don't know what this "up-converting" thing is, but I'm really glad that they switch to HD / widescreen.
