Fox Reality Show Someone's Gotta Go

Brilliant or Baffling: Survivor-Like Reality Show About Layoffs

There are business opportunities to be found in every crevice of life — especially when your business is reality TV. Fox is taking the genre to a new level (down or up, you decide) with Someone's Gotta Go, an in-the-works show that will profile money-troubled companies with about 20 or less employees. The gist: One employee will be laid-off, and after viewing personal information like salaries the decision will be made by the company's employees rather than the boss.

Mike Darnell, chief of alternative programming at Fox, sees the show as a source of employee empowerment, but BuzzSugar is calling the show a cruel concept. What do you think of the premise, is it brilliant or baffling?

Why would I want to hear about people's misery when I can just watch the news.

This is downright cruel. Who would actually sign up to be a part of this show?

That sounds horrible; why would you want to watch someone getting laid off, especially if someone in your family has gone through something like that for real? WAY too insensitive for my taste.

This is terribly stupid. Just because a small company is struggling, what makes them think the best solution is even attempting to GET RID OF SOMEONE?? Can't Fox do something HELPFUL, like get a financial consultant to look at the expenses and profits and make a plan to get the company OUT of trouble, like the show Maxed Out? There's enough people without jobs now - why do you need a show about REAL people getting fired from their ACTUAL jobs?!

I agree with BuzzSugar and starangel82. This show is in bad taste. Fox must be desperate for viewers.
