What’s new on the tube tonight:

Utopia (Fox) Timeslot Premiere: It’s a reality show with no prize, a “social experiment” … ugh … wherein a disparate group of people are dropped in the middle of nowhere for a year(!) and forced to create their own society and infrastructure. This “daring” “new” reality-show concept (swiped from a Dutch series, of course) at least sounds like a departure from the norm, but Utopia is really just another exploitative freak showcase, like Big Brother without a hot tub, or Survivor with no potential survivors. But at least Fox isn’t overdoing it: The Dutch version of Utopia airs five nights a week; we’re only subjected to two (Utopia also airs on Friday nights).

Fashion Rocks (CBS) Special: Hosted by Ryan Seacrest (or at least, as they say on Netflix’s Bojack Horseman, a “Ryan Seacrest Type”), featuring such “rockers” as Jennifer Lopez, Rita Ora and The Band Perry, as well as token geezers Duran Duran and Kiss—yes, rock is dead, Gene Simmons, and you’re not helping.

Sons of Anarchy (FX) Season Premiere: Come to Brewvies Cinema Pub (677 S. 200 West, SLC, 21+) tonight at 8 p.m. and watch the vengeance, violence and musical montages of the final SOA season unfold on the movie screen with a beer or six, courtesy of True TV, City Weekly, Brewvies and Gemma’s Hi-Quality Carving Forks.
