(AP) NEW YORK–TBS says it’s extending Conan O’Brien’s late-night show through November 2015. O’Brien premiered “Conan” on TBS in November 2010, some months after his departure from a short-lived stint as host of NBC’s “Tonight” show. He left NBC when Jay Leno was returned as “Tonight” host.
Although “Conan” averages just 900,000 viewers nightly, TBS says it leads the late-night pack in social media engagement and online activity.
“Conan,” hosted by O’Brien with Andy Richter as announcer, airs Monday through Thursday at 11 p.m. Eastern time.
