Conan demands: You must air my show in Finland!

Kari's trivial & useless news, part 11,735:

Conan O'Brien is very popular in my native Finland. His older shows, Late Night with Conan O'Brien and Tonight Show were always aired there a day later than in USA.

Some years ago Conan realized he looks "exactly" as the President of Finland, Mrs. Tarja Halonen:

As Conan says, his personal support and popularity in Finland was the decicive factor behind Mrs. Halonen's re-election for a second 6 year term in 2006.

Now Conan has heard his new show on TBS is not aired in Finland. Let's see if the situation changes now, after he made a hilarious petition on his show:

Conan is a frootloop like most of those "late night" hosts

[personal BIAS ON]
The only shows worth watching in that genre are Jon Steward and Steve Colbert (former Steward co-host)

Kari, I would say something very profound about your statement, but I like you to much. . .

I like Jimmy Kimmel and Conan. For reasons unknown to me, their sence of humor really hits home.

When I saw the thread title, I had a mental image of a young Arnold Schwarzenegger demanding that Finland show reruns of his Conan movie. Needless to say I was extremely confused and intrigued as to what could have possibly brought this on...

Trucidation, nice pic of the "Gov." Forgot how strong he looked back in the day. Have to admit that I never saw the movie. . .busy building and running some very beautiful and very deadly naval vessel back in those days. Maybe we should have named one "The Conan" just for Kari.
