This is just awful.
The television executives at Fox have stooped to an all-time low with this one.   Lookingup

Any thoughts?

Darnell said he wasn’t concerned about the emotional fallout in a workplace after “Someone’s Gotta Go,” where an employee might be left to work with a colleague they’d just said on national television should be fired.

“Sounds like good reality television,”

Sounds utterly pathetic to me, but I guess it's what the public is drooling for.

God, they'll make a TV show out of anything these days.  I would hate to have seen them during WWII.  Or the Great Plague.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
