For all its darkly comic disreputability, a good episode of It’s Always Sunny lands with an improbably unified gracefulness. The traditional Sunny plot breaks the Gang into factions, but, here, the three parallel storylines barely intersect.
“Utopia,” for example, premiered with 4.63 million viewers, only to lose nearly half that many in its second week before tumbling down to 1.52 million viewers by Sept. “Dating Naked,” similarly, has struggled to stay above one million watchers on average.
Unlike other WWE programs, most of the performers use their real names instead of their ring names, leading to Cameron, Naomi, Natalya, Jimmy Uso, and Tyson Kidd being referred to as Ariane, Trinity, Nattie, Jon, and TJ respectively.
Nikki freezes her eggs without John Cena's knowledge; Eva Marie is forced to make a decision between her husband and her family because of their different religions; Rosa Mendes returns to the WWE and reveals a dark secret to the rest of the Divas.
When contestants on the TV reality series “Utopia” stripped down, the Fox Broadcasting Company advertised – on digital billboards, no less – fuzzed out photos of the naked cast to draw attention to its program.
“Utopia,” in turn, became only the latest in a growing trend of television programs to feature nudity, joining VH1’s “Dating Naked,” the Discovery Channel’s “Naked and Afraid” and even TLC’s “Buying Naked,” all of which have debuted since June 2013.
