Thumbs up Conan O’Brien’s TBS Late-Night Talk Show Renewed Through April 2014

Three years after it first signed former NBC late-night talk show host Conan O’Brien, TBS has extended his late-night series Conan through April 2014. “I am excited to continue my run with TBS because they have been fantastic partners,” O’Brien said. “This means I’ll be taping episodes of Conan well into the Ron Paul presidency.” After a huge ratings start, Conan settled into a modest ratings territory, keeping its appeal to younger viewers. In announcing the show’s renewal, TBS touts a recent streak of 3 consecutive months of audience growth. Year-to-date, Conan has averaged 1.1 million viewers, with 407,000 adults 18-34 and 702,000 adults 18-49. “We are proud to be in business with Conan O’Brien for the long run,” said TNT and TBS’ head of programming Michael Wright. “Night after night, Conan and his team have put together terrific shows that draw a young and fiercely loyal audience. As if that weren’t enough, they have also built a dynamic online presence that keeps fans engaged like no other show in late night.” O’Brien has 5 million followers on Twitter, while video clips from Conan logged more than 83 million views in 2011. Last year, the show traveled to New York. In June 2012, Conan will do a week of shows in Chicago. TBS’ relationship goes beyond the talk show. O’Brien’s Warner Bros. TV-based company Conaco recently produced a comedy pilot for the network. Produced by Conaco, Conan is executive produced by Jeff Ross.

Default I'm partucularly pleased...

...that Conan's production company, Conaco, has a better deal (and more patient executives) than he had at NBC. Seems like every time he produced a series for them {i.e. "ANDY BARKER, P.I."**, it just...disappeared.

Excellent news! I was kind of worried that Conan might be on the chopping block after the cancellation of Lopez Tonight.

I wonder if TBS will dip their toes back into the 12 pm slot and create another companion show for Conan. Maybe a production option for Conan/Conaco, much like Johnny Carson had with Late Night with David Letterman.

Good, he was always more suited for CABLE instead of NETWORK TV

Explain how Late Night with Conan O'Brien had a successful 16 1/2-year run, then.

David Letterman aired after midnight for 11 years, but he has enjoyed a successful run at 11:35 for almost 20 years.

Very true because his risque humor did not suit the Tonight Show. I love his humor because it is more on the silly side and slapstick. He has grown into a great performer. Him and Andy are great together.
