Skavlan is a Norwegian-Swedish television talk show hosted by Norwegian journalist Fredrik Skavlan. It premiered in Sweden on Sveriges Television (SVT) in January 2009,[1] and the first guests to appear on the show were former Prime Minister of Sweden Göran Persson and his wife Anitra Steen.[2] On 8 May 2009, it was announced that Skavlan had been renewed for a second season. It was also announced that the show would no longer only be produced by SVT in Sweden; Skavlan would now be partly produced in Norway by the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK). The first twelve episodes of Skavlan's second season were produced by SVT in Sweden, and the remaining twelve by NRK in Norway.[3]

Criticism[edit]

The show has received criticism from leading intellectuals and some of their female guests, accusing Fredrik Skavlan of being sexist and asking impertinent questions and flirting with his female guests. Carolina Gynning told Swedish media that she found his questions 'demeaning'.[5] Fredrik Skavlan retaliated in an interview with Swedish newspaper Expressen in which he said that the accusations were 'absurd' and that he considered himself to be a 'feminist'.[6]

Skavlan encountered some criticism from Norwegian viewers for his tough interview with former Icelandic prime minister Geir Haarde.[7]
