TBS has extended Conan O’Brien’s contract through April 2014, the network announced today. Conan only pulls in about a million viewers on average — 700,000 in the 18 to 49 demo — which puts him at the back of the pack for late night, behind Letterman and Leno, Fallon and Ferguson, and even Stewart and Colbert. (TBS told us in August that they “couldn’t be happier” with the Great Conando’s numbers.) Perhaps a radical increase in the number of Puppy Conan segments could solve this ratings issue! Just a suggestion/wish.
