How Welcome to Sweden Went from a Pipe Dream to Your New Favorite Show

Greg Poehler

Following in an older sibling's footsteps can be daunting, but thank God Greg Poehler had the balls to try or else we never would have gotten to see the refreshing and hilarious new comedy Welcome to Sweden.

The semi-autobiographical series, which premieres on Thursday at 9/8c on NBC and is already a hit (and renewed!) in Sweden, is based on Poehler's experiences leaving his high-powered job in New York and moving to Stockholm to be with the love of his life.

Review: Extant and New NBC Summer Comedies

Greg Poehler

In space, no one can see you conceive. That appears to be the weird but intriguing premise of CBS's high-profile summer fantasy drama Extant, a show put into play after last year's successful summer run of the network's increasingly absurd Under the Dome. While Wednesday's pilot episode (9/8c) of Extant (all that was available for review) lacks the sort of unforgettable "wow" moment provided by the severed cow in Dome's opener, the new series also seems less likely to lapse irrevocably into silly hysteria.

Wednesday TV: Don Rickles Tribute, NBC's Snowden Scoop

Robert De Niro, Don Rickles

Insults never sounded sweeter than when Don Rickles was hurling hilarious barbs at his targets, whether innocent ringside onlookers or the rich and famous on a celebrity roast dais. At 88, though stooped and using a cane, he still gives as good as he gets, a fact brought home with delightful wit and genuine lump-in-the-throat sentiment in Spike TV's One Night Only: An All-Star Tribute to Don Rickles (Wednesday, 9/8c).

Parks and Recreation Boss on the Show's Big Time Jump

Chris Pratt, Adam Scott, Amy Poehler

[WARNING: This story contains major spoilers from Thursday's season finale of Parks and Recreation. Read at your own risk!]

Parks and Recreation has become very adept at surprise storytelling. Case in point: Thursday's season finale jumped ahead three years to find Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) working in the National Parks office, which had moved to Pawnee City Hall's vacant and refurbished third floor.

Get the hot scoop on 39 must-watch season finales

The final minute of the finale disoriented viewers — and not just because Leslie Knope had bangs. Our small-town bureaucrat had turned into a fast-paced boss dealing with some sort of media lockdown, canceling a trip to South Dakota and firing an employee named Ed (Mad Men's Jon Hamm) who was even more inept than Jerry Terry (Jim O'Heir). Leslie also had a group of people waiting for her downstairs in Ben's (Adam Scott) office to discuss something so important that the parents of three were willing to be late to Ben's big night — all mysteries which were set up for the upcoming seventh and likely final season of the NBC comedy.

What does this all mean for the show? TVGuide.com caught up with executive producer Mike Schur to get the scoop: read more
