…he’d never stop puking.
Loathsome Mike Darnell to bring this mockeryto Fox:
struggling to stay afloat in this lousy economy agree — presumably in
exchange for money — to let their staffs decide which among them is
going to get pink-slipped to save money.
To populate its new “Lord of the Flies”-esque series, “Someone’s
Gotta Go,” Fox has lined up actual companies — smaller, Dunder
Mifflin-esque-sized (15-20 employees) ones — having financial
In each case, the company’s boss or owner will call all the
employees together and tell them someone’s going to get laid off. But
rather than the boss/owner making the decision, he or she will instead
give the employees all the available information about one another —
salaries, job evaluations, etc. — and let the employees decide who
will get pink-slipped.
Fox — or at least its genius/madman head of reality-TV Mike
Darnell, whom no one over there seems willing or able to reign in —
thinks people will flock to this show. Because it is about — wait for
it — wish fulfillment. Because we’ve all been there when someone —
we’ll call them Mister A — once again cons their way out of getting
shown the door at our place of employment, while poor old hard-working
slob — Mister B — gets the old heave ho, and wished we were in charge
so it hadn’t played out that way.
