We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

TV Tonight: FlashForward


It's the one of the most-promising new shows of the season, and it's stuck on one of the most over-crowded TV nights of the week--when did Thursday become the new Sunday? Make that extra, extra effort to check out FlashForward on ABC tonight--but know that it's going to repeat tomorrow night at 7. ---

The FlashForward gist: Every person on Earth blacks out for 2:17 minutes and sees a glimpse of their future--specifically, April 29, 2010. Well, the ones who don’t die due to plane crashes, train wrecks, missing the results of Dancing With the Stars, etc. Now, do they accept their fate or work toward changing it? And does ABC have its new Lost after a dozen previous failed attempts? FlashForward’s star-power (including Joseph Fiennes, John Cho and Jack Davenport, as well as Losties Dominic Monaghan and Sonya Walger) and epic concept say “Hit!”; heavy timeslot competition from Bones (Fox) and Survivor (CBS) says “Maybe not.”
