TBS announced that its late-night talk show “Conan” posted double-digit gains in key demographics during the first quarter, continuing six consecutive months of growth.

The Conan O’Brien-hosted show’s audience grew 25% in Q1 2012 from the year-ago period, according to final Live + 7 data, with a 19% gain in adults 18-49 and 12% growth in adults 18-34, the company said. Year-to-date the show has averaged 1.1 million total viewers, including 736,000 adults 18-49 and 433,000 adults 18-34.

The show posted six consecutive months of growth in adults 18-49, adding up to a 32% increase in the demo from the end of September 2011 to the end of March 2012, TBS reported.

  2. You must be over 35. Young men get his juvenile humor.
