TBS has renewed Conan O'Brien's late night show Conan through November 2015, the network announced Monday.
"When we invited Conan O'Brien to come to TBS, we knew he would bring with him a passionately loyal following of young adults," TBS President Michael Wright said in a statement. "We are proud to extend our relationship with Conan as he continues to forge the future of late night. I just wish we didn't decide to tell him on April Fools' Day."
Crack open a bottle wine because it's time to celebrate: Cougar Town has been renewed for a 13-episode fifth season.

"I'm the oldest cougar in town," says former Partridge Family mom Shirley Jones, who guest stars as Jules' new neighbor on the March 26 episode of TBS's Cougar Town. "My character and her husband decide to move to an area where they can play and try some new things out."
