Conan O'Brien


For showing a significant growth in rating and widely reaching out to online and mobile viewing, 'Conan' has been blessed with two more years.

Conan O'Brien is on TBS to stay. The talk show host has just signed a two-year deal with the cable network that will keep his show "Conan" on air until April 2014. "I am excited to continue my run with TBS because they have been fantastic partners," O'Brien said in a statement. "This means Iíll be taping episodes of 'Conan' well into the Ron Paul presidency."

"Conan", which was conceived after his ugly exit from NBC's "The Tonight Show", has shown a steady growth in rating over the past months. The show has received 1.1 million viewers in average with 407,000 adults 18-34 and 702,000 adults 18-49, Nielsen said. "The success of Conan also extends well beyond the show's TBS telecasts to include widespread DVR, online and mobile viewing, interaction through Twitter, Facebook and TeamCoco.com," the network said.

Michael Wright, executive vice president and head of programming for TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies, said, "We are proud to be in business with Conan O'Brien for the long run. 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."
