Fox looking to air recession reality show

In a shameless effort to dredge up a new reality show concept from the depths of society, Fox is turning to that untapped gold mine of hilarity and hijinks: the recession.

The Washington Post reported that Someone's Gotta Go, Fox's latest attempt to scrape the bottom of the barrel for material, will feature struggling small businesses going through layoffs. Employees, who will have access to each others' records (including salaries and evaluations), will vote on one colleague to walk the plank each week. Sounds totally hilarious, right? Pink slips! Unemployment! It's pure comic genius.
