TBS has renewed Conan O’Brien‘s late-night talk show Conan through 2018.
The show, which premiered in November 2010, is averaging 862,000 viewers in Live + 7 delivery for the year to date, according to TBS, with the network adding that Conan draws a larger audience in the Adults 18-34 demo than 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.
“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,” said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies (TCM), in a release. “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 airs Monday-Thursday at 11/10c on TBS.
