Halfway Mark: The Best TV Episodes of 2014 (So Far), Part 2

Girls, “Two Plane Rides”

Written by Lena Dunham

Directed by Lena Dunham

Aired March 23rd, 2014

Do you remember how last season’s Girls run ended? Well this season things culminated in an entirely different tone. This time, there were no grand gestures or fireworks. Season three isn’t quite as dark as season two, but man is the finale rough. If the season two finale frustrated fans because it suggested that Hannah might be too dependent on the man in her life, the season three finale seems intent on underlining that Hannah’s ready to move on, with or without Adam. And she isn’t the only one moving on, but she seems to be the only one moving in the right direction: Hannah gets into the country’s best grad school, Adam gives a truly “bad” performance in his Broadway debut, Marnie finds herself in another destructive relationship, Shosh »

Welcome to Sweden: Season One Ratings

11 July 2014 3:57 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Amy Poehler's Parks and Recreation series has managed to stay on NBC for seven seasons. How will her brother's show, Welcome to Sweden, do in the ratings? Will it have a long run or will it be cancelled like so many other shows? We'll have to wait and see.

On Welcome to Sweden, a successful New Yorker (Greg Poehler) agrees to follow his girlfriend (Josephine Bornebusch) as she returns to her hometown of Stockholm. Others in the cast are Lena Olin, Claes Månsson, Christopher Wagelin, Per Svensson, Patrick Duffy, and Illeana Douglas.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see »

Emmy bait: Watch nominees in 25 of the year's best TV scenes

11 July 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

While much of the talk surrounding the announcement of the 2014 Emmy nominations focused on bigger-picture issues (snubs both critical and fan-enraging, the historical impact of a Simpsons omission, and so on), the year leading up to Thursday’s roll call was actually made up of many smaller flashes of brilliance on the small screen.

EW launched its 50 Best TV Scenes of the Past Year three weeks ago in an effort to highlight some of those moments—the most powerful, funny, touching, lusty, or sometimes just plain awkward moments over the 2013–14 season. It’s no surprise, then, that many of the »

‘Big Brother’ Rises, Tops Thursday; Ok Start for ‘Welcome to Sweden’

11 July 2014 9:18 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS reality veteran “Big Brother” bounced back from its low of last week to rule Thursday night’s ratings race, while other shows joined it in improving upon their scores from the pre-holiday night. It was an Ok start, meanwhile, for NBC comedy “Welcome to Sweden,” starring Amy Poehler’s brother Greg.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, CBS followed repeats of comedies “The Big Bang Theory” (1.7 rating/7 share in adults 18-49, 7.9 million viewers overall) and “The Millers” (1.3/5 in 18-49, 5.8 million viewers overall) with “Big Brother” (2.0/7 in 18-49, 6.2 million viewers overall), which grew 25% (0.4) from last week to stand as the night’s top show in young adults. The rise was not unexpected given that last Thursday was the eve of Independence Day; also, the conclusion of Wednesday’s episode portended some explosive happenings in the house that were recapped early on in Thursday’s hour. CBS, which won the »

‘Welcome to Sweden’ Series Premiere Review

11 July 2014 6:32 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

[This is a review of Welcome to Sweden season 1, episode 1. There will be Spoilers.]

-

Without the summer “burn-off” season we might not have had the chance to see Greg Poehler’s charming new comedy series, Welcome to Sweden. A risky proposition for NBC due to Poehler’s relative low profile and the show’s reliance on subtitles and subtlety, Welcome to Sweden mines laughs from mildly uncomfortable situations and awkwardness in a way that no NBC show has since the good old days of the Steve Carell-lead Office - with Poehler’s Bruce Evans coming of as a more relatable and well-meaning every-man than Carell’s buffoonish character did.

The brother of Parks and Recreation star Amy Poehler (who is co-producing the series and pops ...

Is 'True Detective' worthy? 'Modern Family,' again? The critics react to 2014's Emmy nods

10 July 2014 4:18 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Melissa Maerz: Jeff,

When the Emmy nominations were announced this morning, I was sitting at my desk, shouting, “Hodor! Hodor! Hodor!” Game of Thrones dominated with 19 nominations! Hot pie for everyone! I’d quibble with the fact that Noah Hawley’s fantastic update of Fargo didn’t get a best drama nod, especially since it was the runner-up with 18 nominations, and The Good Wife was unjustly ignored in that category, coming off its best season ever—it might be the only network drama that I truly loved—but the rest of the list was pretty solid. Among the smartest choices »

Greg Poehler (Amy's brother) discusses his new comedy 'Welcome to Sweden'

10 July 2014 12:49 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Tonight at 9 p.m., NBC will debut a comedy series starring a Poehler. Not A. Poehler as in Amy, but Greg Poehler, as in her younger brother. A former lawyer whose only Hollywood experience is that blood relation, Greg is the creator/writer/producer/star of Welcome to Sweden, a somewhat-autobiographical tale about a New York accountant named Bruce Evans who meets the Swede of his dreams (played by Josephine Bornebusch) and decides to give it all up for love and move to Scandinavia with her. (The single-camera comedy, which is also executive-produced by Amy, has already aired its first »

President Obama and Zach Galifianakis Nab Emmy Nomination for ‘Between Two Ferns’

10 July 2014 12:19 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

President Barack Obama was nominated for an Emmy on Thursday for his work with Zach Galifianakis on “Between Two Ferns.” The hilarious, fern-filled interview they made for Funny Or Die back in March was recognized in the Outstanding Short-Format Live-Action Entertainment Program category. Galifianakis’ purposefully awkward show was also nominated last year, but it didn't win. President Obama becomes the first sitting President to earn an Emmy nomination, but Ronald Reagan won a Golden Globe in 1957 and George W. Bush won two Razzie Awards for his appearance in “Fahrenheit 9/11.” See video: Zach Galifianakis, Owen Wilson and Amy Poehler Help Matthew Weiner Do Comedy in ‘Are. »

Amy Poehler Scores Emmy Props from Madeleine Albright

10 July 2014 12:05 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Maybe an Emmy nomination isn't the greatest honor a TV actor can receive. Maybe the highest props of all is a shout-out from a former Secretary of State. We'll have to ask Amy Poehler which is better, because she has both. Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright reached out to the "Parks and Recreation" Emmy nominee to give her congratulations on Twitter. It's pretty unbelievable. Congrats Amy Poehler on your #EmmysNoms! Can you get this to our mutual friend at @parksandrecnbc? pic.twitter.com/JFAqRgGHs2 — Madeleine Albright (@madeleine) July 10, 2014 Does it get any better than that? Can someone please check to see if the Twitter account for the estate of Geraldine Ferraro has reached out to Julia Louis-Dreyfus yet? »

Greg Poehler Talks Welcome To Sweden, Using Subtitles to His Advantage, the Show’s Success in Sweden, His 3-Year Plan for the Show, and More

10 July 2014 8:28 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

On the new NBC comedy series Welcome to Sweden, New York resident Bruce Evans (Greg Poehler, who also serves as executive producer, head writer and showrunner) and Swedish import Emma Wiik (Josephine Bornebusch) seem to be the perfect couple.  But when she makes the life-changing decision to move back to her native Stockholm to accept a prestigious job after being with Bruce for a year, she is surprised and thrilled that he agrees to move with her to begin a new life together.  Only once there, he faces many unique challenges and culture clashes, not the least of which is winning over her eccentric and very Swedish family.  The show also stars Lena Olin, Claes Månsson, Christopher Wagelin, Patrick Duffy and Illeana Douglas, with guest appearances by Amy Poehler, Aubrey Plaza, Will Ferrell and Gene Simmons.

66th Annual Emmy Nominations Announced

10 July 2014 8:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The nominations for the 66th Emmy Awards were released this morning, and I’m surprisingly satisfied with the results. Though there were an overabundance of nominations for the so-so Netflix series House of Cards and not nearly enough (read: any) for BBC America’s criminally-underrated Orphan Black, including for lead actress Tatiana Maslany, the categories shook out in a mostly predictable, if fair way.

Of course, heavyweights Breaking Bad and True Detective will be duking it out in the Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series categories (the latter of which saw both Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson swipe nominations). Other shows which scored big include American Horror Story: Coven, dominating the Miniseries categories, Game of Thrones, which has the most nominations at 19, and Fargo, trailing just behind with 18.

I’m particularly pleased to see Idris Elba squeak into Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie »

2014 Emmy Nominations Announced; True Detective, Fargo, The Normal Heart, and More Score Multiple Nods

10 July 2014 7:22 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The 2014 Emmy Nominations were announced this morning, and they were about as surprising/disappointing as I expected.  We're in the Golden Age of Television™, but no one seems to tell the Emmys.  Yes, True Detective and Fargo got some love, but so did the awful awards-bait The Normal Heart, which picked up four out of six nominations for Best Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or Movie.  Then there are the usual suspects: Breaking Bad, Mad Men, The Big Bang Theory, Modern Family, etc.  Among tge acting nominations, I would say I'm pleasantly surprised about Andre Braugher getting attention for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy for Brooklyn Nine-Nine and shocked that Kate Mara picked up an Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series nomination when really her CGI stunt double deserves all the credit. Hit the jump to check out the full list of the major Emmy nominations.  The Emmy »

2014 Emmy Award Nominations Announced

10 July 2014 7:21 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The 2014 Emmy Award nominations were announced today and led by HBO's "Game of Thrones" with 19 total nominations. New show "Fargo" scored 18, followed by "American Horror Story", "Breaking Bad", The Normal Heart and not too far down the line "True Detective" with 12. The one show I love and continue to watch, "Hannibal" received zero nominations, but then again, I have never paid too much attention to the Emmys, primarily because people have to nominate themselves, something I've never understood. "Game of Thrones" 19 "Fargo" 18 "American Horror Story: Coven" 17 "Breaking Bad" 16 "The Normal Heart" 16 "Saturday Night Live" 14 "House of Cards" 13 "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey" 12 "Downton Abbey" 12 "Orange Is the New Black" 12 From a network perspective, leading the pack was HBO, coming in just one nomination shy of a 100 and it wasn't even a close race with CBS coming in second with 47. HBO 99 CBS 47 NBC 46 FX Networks 45 ABC 37 The top shelf nominations are listed »
