Conan O'Brien's talk show 'Conan' to air on TBS through 2022
UPI News Service, 05/19/2017
Conan Brien has signed a new, four-year deal that will keep his late-night talk show "Conan" on TBS through 2022.
"Conan continues to prove his vibrancy night after night and his incredible command of the digital and social space has only built on his young, connected audience," Kevin Reilly -- president of TNT and TBS and chief creative officer of Turner Entertainment -- said in a statement Wednesday.
"This next chapter will provide support for Conan and [executive producer] Jeff [Ross] to expand the boundaries from a 'talk show' to a range of personality-based, cross-platform experiences."
"The TV landscape has changed dramatically since I inherited the traditional talk show format in 1993," O'Brien added.
"In the past few years, I've stumbled across many new and exciting ways of connecting with my audience, and I'm eager to evolve my show into something leaner, more agile, and more unpredictable. I also want a pony."
