He's locked in for another four years...
TBS loves their relationship with Conan O'Brien, enough that they have locked his late-night show in for a few more years. TV Line reports that Conan has received a four-year renewal deal from the network, keeping him on TBS through 2018.
The four-year-old show does well in the ratings, averaging 862,000 viewers in Live + 7 stats for 2014 so far and topping 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 among 18 - 34 year-olds.
Said TBS programming president Michael Wright, "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. 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."
