TBS has extended the popular late-night series “Conan” through April 2014, demonstrating the network’s solid commitment to the Emmy-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.

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.

“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).

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.”
