Conan and TBS Agree to Two-Year Deal
By Breeanna Hare, CNN
After the great late night wars of 2010, it looks like Conan O’Brien has made himself at home at TBS – and the feeling’s mutual.
The network, which is owned by the same parent company as CNN, announced Wednesday that they’re extending “Conan” for another two years, meaning we’ll have O’Brien’s particular brand of humor through at least April, 2014.
The late night host is “excited” to be sticking with TBS, saying in a statement from the network, “This means I’ll be taping episodes of ‘Conan’ well into the Ron Paul presidency.”
The statement adds that “Conan” has recently seen three consecutive months of audience growth, and has been well-received by the lucrative demographic of young adults.
