NBC’s “Late Night With Conan O’Brien” will start broadcasting in high definition starting Tuesday, April 26, when the show returns from hiatus.

“I’m really looking forward to the extra hour in the makeup chair,” Mr. O’Brien joked in the announcement.

A spokesman for the show said the animation at the top of the show is being tweaked, but the change that will be most noticeable to all viewers will be the wide-screen letterbox presentation on the TV screen.

“The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” made the conversion in April 1999.
