NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Conan O’Brien’s got his desk job for at least two more years.
TBS said Wednesday that its late-night host, who premiered with “Conan” in November 2010, has won an extension through April 2014.
O’Brien says, “I’ll be taping episodes of ‘Conan’ well into the Ron Paul presidency.”
He originally signed with TBS after a brief, tumultuous promotion to be host of NBC’s “Tonight” show.
TBS says “Conan” has recently charted a third consecutive month of audience growth. During 2012, it is averaging 1.1 million viewers.
The Los Angeles-based “Conan” airs Monday through Thursday at 11 p.m. Eastern time.
