    Like a poor man's Hell's Kitchen. Maybe the FCC or the IRS is watching it from here on out. What is FOX thinking? American Idol is sooooooooooo 2002, this series needs to go. Speaking of needs to go, FOX has a new series called "Does Someone Has To Go?' Namely it should've been called "Does Everyone needs to watch this trash on trainwreck TV?" This is one of the worst reality shows of the year and as for the network, keep on making Chef Gordon Ramsey pissing off everybody at the kitchen. Expand

    This show is a terrible. At first it makes sense and the benefits to the company could be great. However this self professed "social experiment" is nothing more than a ratings ploy. The concept of airing each other grievances and reveal to the group each other salaries is fine; but, this group of people also has to nominate people to be potentially fired is where I draw the line. The part when I take issue is that the employees are allowed to confer after each segment, which allows them to form alliances and agree on how to vote. This in effect shatters the chances of people of are actually causing issues to be nominated because someone could be convinced to change their vote. This is just to provide drama and nothing else. This show started with good intentions but it is the worst in the reality show genre. Expand

    Does Someone Have to Go? is not easy to watch, though it is engrossing to see how alliances are formed and trust is broken.

    Rooting against an established villain playing an elaborate game like Survivor or The Amazing Race is one thing; rooting to see a real person rendered unable to support his or her family is quite another, even if that person seems like a jerk.

    As it turns out, Does Someone Have to Go? is exactly bad as you would think.
