NEW YORK (AP) - 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.
