Additional information

Skavlan is a Norwegian-Swedish television talk show hosted by Norwegian journalist Fredrik Skavlan. It premièred in Sweden on Sveriges Television (SVT) in January 2009 and the first guests to appear on the show were former Prime Minister of Sweden Göran Persson and his wife Anitra Steen. 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.

All four ABBA members have been guests on the show (individually!).


Fredrik Skavlan's first programme of a new series had Benny and his son Ludvig as guests where they talked about their alcohol addictions (Benny gave up ten years ago) and Ludvig's new group.

According to Musikindustrien, 1.8 million people in Sweden alone watched this episode of the programme.
