    FOX TV has announced they are going to produce a new "Reality" Show called Someone's got to Go! where employees of a Company will decide who among them get to be layed off.[​IMG]

    Who in Blazes comes up with this Garbage![​IMG]

    Yikes.

    That does seem to be a contender for one of the poorest taste decisions for a show right now, given the terrible economy at the moment. Trust Fox to be the network to come up with that though, in the same line as Who wants to marry a millionaire, and When Animals attack.

    Having been laid off from a non-profit that had to dissolve this is way to close to home for me. I don't need a reminder of how my life sucks now, and I can't imagine too many other people will want to watch it either. Just when you thought they couldn't stoop any lower in so-called reality shows.

    No offense but if you hate reality programming so much, why keep talking about it?

    Because there is no escape from this garbage, and no legal recourse.

    Of course, there is always the button that says "Power On/Off"

    Or, outside of on/off, there are also a bazillion other channels. Damnit, if more people had tuned into Dollhouse and TSCC, you wouldn't have this crap [​IMG] [​IMG]

    What's so depressing about it? People lose their jobs every day. At least people on this show will probably get something for their trouble.

    It's not like they are going to kill people.
