PostSubject: Utopia   January 23rd 2014, 7:45 pm

I didn't want to make a new topic for this, but didn't know where else to put it.

http://www.realityblurred.com/realitytv/archives/utopia/2014_Jan_23_fox-order

The new Fox series that combines Big Brother and Survivor

The brand-new reality series that strands 15 people for a year and broadcasts live feeds of their interaction is coming to Fox. Utopia debuted to strong ratings just a few weeks ago in the Netherlands and was created by John de Mol, who’s behind the original Big Brother format.

The show is like Big Brother meets Survivor, with both a survival and a competition element, plus live feeds. Fox will keep those but air the show only once a week; the Dutch network SBS 6 airs it five nights a week.

There’s a competition element that also keeps adding new participants: those on the show nominate each other for eviction, but someone from the bottom three is evicted by one of two newcomers (the other newcomer is also sent home).

Fox’s new reality executive, Simon Andreae, said in a press release that the show “will be the largest, most ambitious social experiment on television” and called it “an irresistible and truly forward-thinking television format.”

There isn’t a timeline yet for when it might air, though in the press release, John de Mol cited the network’s “speed and passion for the project,” suggesting it will air sooner than later. THR reports that “Casting and location scouting for the U.S. series will begin almost immediately.”

well based on the live feed updates this is something else...naked swimming, an actual physical altercation and this is the first night lol.

Evidently you can get 2 live feeds for free.  $4.99/month gets you additional feeds and a 360 feed.

It airs on Sunday from 8 to 10. Then again on Tuesday and Friday from 8 to 9. That's the first week. Who knows after that.

I watched the first 30 minutes and it was bad. Does it get better? I'm not sure I will keep watching.

 It is drama filled, lots of personalities.  I liked it.  Not sure if it gets better catty, depending I guess what you like.  I can see it jumping the shark if it gets too out of control.

Thanks Lori. I think I have a problem with the narrator/narration.

I went to the site tonight, I was going to watch Ep. 2 but forgot I didn't watch BB Australia yet (priorities you know lol). I saw pics of all different people. Do they leave and others come in? That's going to suck, it always takes me weeks to remember their names.

Yes they leave and new ones come in.  I'm several episodes behind and have yet to turn on the feeds so I don't know all the ins and outs.

Figures, just when I was starting to get into it. Hope the ratings go up enough to keep it on the air.

Utopia 2014: Viewers Continue To Decline

This might not be the best news for our fellow Utopia fans because if these numbers continue, it can only lead to the inevitable cancelation of the show. Most networks wouldn’t hesitate to cut a show doing this bad, so we’re lucky they haven’t canceled it yet.

Despite the declining numbers, a FOX executive said they’re going to have patience with the ratings and viewers as they believe that people might not be quite ready for a new fall show. However, you can only be patient for so long before you’re losing too much money to continue.

Utopia on FOX viewership -

Episode 1: 4.63 Million viewers
Episode 2: 2.48 Million viewers
Episode 3: 1.99 Million viewers
Episode 4: 2.42 Million viewers
Episode 5: 1.54 Million viewers

FOX made a $50 million dollar gamble on Utopia, hence why they’re being “patient”. If the show is to be canceled, It’ll happen in late October when there is baseball to take it’s prime time spot. That leaves us with about a month to see the numbers increase before the inevitable finally catches up with us.

Utopia Cancelled at Fox, Effective Immediately

For the 15 residents of Utopia, it’s the end of the world as they know it.

Fox on Sunday cancelled its big-budget “social experiment,” effective immediately (meaning last Friday’s episode was the series finale).

Utopia‘s live-streaming feeds will fade to black later today. A Fox insider tells TVLine that it’s “likely” viewers will get to see the show’s participants react to the cancellation before the plug is pulled.

UPDATE: It looks like we won’t be seeing the cast’s reactions, after all. Executive producer Jon Kroll on Sunday confirmed the series’ cancellation

This is too bad, I was really getting into it. A lot of the problem was it's once a week showing. So much happened during the week, and they just touched base on it. Especially last week when the world series was on, there was not show until this Friday. Tons of stuff happened during those two weeks.
