Conan O'Brien Celebrates as TBS Extends "Conan" Through 2018
Proving that his hilarious antics are still appreciated by many, Conan O’Brien snagged four more years at TBS.
On Wednesday (May 14), the network announced that it's extending "Conan" through 2018, making the message clear that the host is there to stay.
According to Deadline, "Conan" earns an average of 862,000 viewers in Live + 7 with a strong presence of younger viewers, topping a number of late-night competitors among adults 18-34.
O'Brien's TBS stint started in November 2010 after an attempt at the "Tonight Show" on NBC.
“Conan has not only brought an incredibly young audience to TBS but has also created a digital presence that draws millions of fans to his unique brand of comedy,” Michael Wrighthead of programming said in a statement.
“In addition, Conan has taken his show on the road for memorable weeks in New York, Atlanta and last month in Dallas, and will be breaking new ground next year when Conan becomes the first late-night show to tape at Comic-Con.”
