    Because Americans losing jobs to other countries during a rough economy is always funny, right?

    It's arguably the worst idea I've ever heard, and even the promo seems somewhat offensive.

    'Hogan's Heroes," which mined the knee-slapping humor of a WWII German POW camp, lasted for six seasons on CBS.

    The 168 episodes had more lives as syndicated reruns.

    It's all laughs until they show the episode about newspaper copy editors being outsourced to India.

    That's too close to reality TV. :(

    It's almost as crazy as making the Vietnam War funny.

    The best part of this shit show? Parks & Rec, which was well on its way to becoming the best show on TV, gets bumped to midseason to make room. Congrats, NBC. You took the best two hours of television any network has ever had, and you fucked it up.

    1. The best two hours of television an network has ever had?

    B. Is this a less funny topic than a WWII POW camp, a WWII Naval base in a combat zone, a Korean War surgical hospital?
