Utopia Cancelled By FOX


The huge reported $50 million bet by FOX on the elaborate reality show Utopia is over as FOX has pulled the plug and canceled the show. The show where a group of people was put together to build a community from scratch, has struggled in the ratings ever since its August debut as well as getting not great reviews.

The cancelation of Utopia isn’t really a surprise as the ratings were so poor for all the promotion all the show got, the question really was at which point would FOX cancel the show. FOX was hoping for the next Survivor or Big Brother but it’s been a while since a new big network reality show became a hit since the Voice in 2011 on NBC. The big question for network executives is if the boom in reality shows is over or if this just an issue with people not being interested in this one show.
