Now this is some crazy crazy CRAZY crazy: The Fox Network is developing a reality TV series titled "Somebody's Gotta Go". The gimmick? Oh, this is a good one. The series will spotlight small American businesses where employees decide which one of them will be laid off. What?!? That's some chocolate-dipped crazy. Now, I've got all types of ideas in my TV pilot pocket, but some ideas, however ching-ching, need to be kept in the pocket. Honestly, who are these idiots who look out of their large glass windows, see the rise in unemployment, homelessness and crime, and decide Americans could really benefit from a TV series about employees singling out fellow employees and getting them laid off. Sounds idiotic, shameless and heartless.
