TBS Renews ‘Conan’ Through November 2015

Network Adds Another Year and a Half to O’Brien’s Contract 4/01/2013 1:21 PM Eastern

TBS has renewed late night talker Conan through November 2015, the network announced Monday.

 A year ago, TBS renewed the series through April 2014; this extends the cabler’s relationship with Conan O’Brien for another year and a half.

Since its premiere in November 2010, Conan has averaged about 900,000 viewers at 11 p.m., putting it on par with cable entries such as Comedy Central’s The Daily Show With Jon Stewart. In its announcement, TBS touted the series’ online engagement as well as the fact that it has a younger median age than any other late-night talk show.

On Monday night, Conan begins a week of shows in Atlanta tied to Turner and CBS Sports’ joint coverage of the 2013 NCAA men’s basketball Final Four.
