TBS Renews 'Conan' Through 2018


It seems everyone is still crazy for Coco.

TBS announced earlier today that it has decided to grant Conan O'Brien's popular late night talk show 'Conan' with a big renewal, officially extending the show through 2018. That adds another three years onto O’Brien’s previous deal with the cable network, proving that they love this red-haired comedian just as much as we do.

"Over the past four years, we have built a terrific relationship with Conan O’Brien and are thrilled to be extending his series for another three years," Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TBS, said in a statement. "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."

Wright continued: "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."

'Conan,' which premiered in November 2010, averages roughly 862,000 viewers. And, according to the network, the show draws a larger audience in the Adults 18-34 demo than some of its bigger competitors, including the likes of 'The Late Show with David Letterman,' 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,' 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!,' 'The Arsenio Hall Show,' 'Chelsea Lately,' and 'Watch What Happens: Live.'

So, really, it's no wonder why they want him to stick around. 'Conan' airs Monday-Thursday at 11/10c on TBS.
