Critic’s corner: What’s on TV tonight

Emily Shur/Bravo

Start-Ups: Silicon Valley 10 p.m., Bravo

The title makes this show sound about 20 years late. It’s a new reality series about a group of six young entrepreneurs hoping to become technology’s next big thing. We’ll follow them as they try to raise money and argue about who botched what. We also get to hear them exclaim, “Geeks are definitely the new rock stars” and “If you’re not aiming for something a billion dollars or larger, why waste your time?” But the Bravo people of tomorrow are all attractive and styled, so there will be eye candy.

State and Main 7:10 p.m., Sundance

I forgot about this 2000 movie, written and directed by David Mamet and filmed in Massachusetts. It’s a satire of Hollywood, an idea that is as old as Hollywood itself; but the cast here, along with Mamet, make the cynicism work. Alec Baldwin, before “30 Rock,” stars with Philip Seymour Hoffman, Sarah Jessica Parker, William H. Macy, Patti LuPone, David Paymer, Laura Silverman, Julia Stiles, and — watch for an uncredited cameo — John Krasinski.
