And it was only a matter of time before someone WENT THERE…so they are…they’re working up a show called “Someone’s Gotta Go!” The premise? Well, naturally it is a reality show about companies in trouble who have to lay employees off…the twist? The sick Fox twist? (Because even just watching people ACTUALLY lose their jobs isn’t sick and twisted enough…) The twist is that the employees (other cast members) will be voting people off a la survivor…’cause watching people fight for survival in the wild has apparently gotten too stale for America’s TV palate. Kudos Fox…way to take, what for some is, the most painful and humiliating moment in their professional lives and exploit it for some Ad time. Just when I think you’ve found rock bottom with shows like Wife Swap you manage to find a new low. But I’d like to take a moment to do something I never thought I’d do…Thank you FOX…you just reminded me that my layoff could have been a LOT worse…it could have been televised! I could have been publicly humiliated! I could have been VOTED off rather than just let go. Oh-the other awesome news is that it’s maybe going to be international! Because other countries can’t get enough of seeing Americans act like assholes!
Maybe they can make the employees cage fight before hand so we’ll be one step closer to the Running Man TV show. I hope Glenn Beck hosts…and wears a cape…he’d be perfect for it…especially with the fake crying at the end about how much he fucking loves America. How was he EVER on CNN.
