TBS Extends "Conan" through April 2014

TBS has extended the popular late-night series CONAN through April 2014, demonstrating the network's solid commitment to the Emmy(R)-nominated show and its host, Conan O'Brien.

Since premiering in November 2010, CONAN has been a hit with TBS's core audience of young adults. The show recently charted its third consecutive month of audience growth. 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. In the past year, CONAN has conducted special events throughout the country, including a week of shows from the Beacon Theater in New York and fan art exhibits in New York City and San Diego. In June 2012, CONAN will travel again, this time for a week of shows in Chicago.

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

Conan O'Brien added, "I am excited to continue my run with TBS because they have been fantastic partners. This means I'll be taping episodes of CONAN well into the Ron Paul presidency."

CONAN has enjoyed three consecutive months of audience growth. In January 2012, the show was up 27% in total viewers compared to October 2011, while adults 18-34 were up 18% and adults 18-49 up 21%. Already in February, CONAN is showing an additional 12% growth among adults 18-34, 11% among adults 18-49 and 8% among total viewers. In 2012, CONAN has averaged 1.1 million viewers, with 407,000 adults 18-34 and 702,000 adults 18-49.

Conan O'Brien is a true powerhouse when it comes to online activity and engagement. He has amassed 5,020,000 followers on Twitter, more than any other late-night host. Video clips from CONAN presented through TeamCoco.com, viral players and YouTube attracted more than 83 million video views in 2011. And the Team Coco Facebook page has drawn more than 1.8 million fans, nearly doubling the page's January 2011 figures.

In its first year on TBS, CONAN earned three Emmy nominations, including one for Outstanding Variety Music or Comedy Series and another for the show's outstanding team of comedy writers. In addition, Conan O'Brien won the People's Choice Award for Favorite Talk Show Host. Meanwhile, the Team Coco website has garnered a wide array of industry recognition, including a 2011 Emmy nomination for Outstanding Creative Achievement in Interactive Media and a 2011 Webby Award for Best Fan Site.

Produced by Conaco LLC, the Emmy-nominated CONANairs Monday-Thursday at 11 p.m. (ET/PT) on TBS. Jeff Ross serves as executive producer of CONAN. The show originates from Stage 15 at Warner Bros. Studios.
