Apparently, the concept for Does Someone Have to Go? has been kicking around Fox for awhile, possibly waiting for the economy to improve, so that television viewers, pushing giant piles of money out of their line of sight, would feel good about a program where people lose their jobs as part of the basic premise.
However, that day has not yet come (thanks for nothing, Obama!) and you have to fill the broadcast day with something, so the show that you'd think will likely end in a murder/suicide of some sort will debut on Fox May 23, right after Hell's Kitchen. I try to limit the hours I spend a week laughing at the pain of others, but if you want to see employees turn against each other for seemingly no other reason than to grab a rating point or two, six episodes of this atrocity are scheduled, two for each employer. Watch someone beg for the opportunity to continue feeding their family! Yay!
