"Everybody" loves you in HD

CBS Television Distribution’s Everybody Loves Raymond will soon get an upgrade to high-definition.

Beginning March 17, all 210 episodes of Raymond will be available to air in high-definition. The program started shooting in high definition in 1999, so the series first three seasons are being converted to HD, with series creator Phillip Rosenthal supervising the process.

The move is timed with the series start of its’ second syndication cycle, which also begins on March 17. On this same date, Raymond is shifting to Fox-owned WPWR-TV, where it will air weeknights at 6 p.m. Raymond now airs at 12:30 a.m., 1 a.m., and now 4 a.m. on WGN-TV (this gets worse, doesn’t it?)
