TBS has renewed late-night talker Conan through
November 2015, the network announced Monday.

A year ago, TBS
renewed the series through April 2014
; this extends the cabler's
relationship with Conan O'Brien for another year and a half.

Since premiering in November 2010, Conan has averaged
about 900,000 viewers at 11 p.m., putting it on par with cable entries like
Comedy Central's The Daily Show. In its announcement, TBS touted the
series' online engagement as well as the fact that it has a younger median age
than any other late-night talk show.

On Monday night, Conan begins a week of
shows in Atlanta tied to Turner's coverage of the 2013 NCAA Men's Final Four.
