    it's not like they're considering REPLACING P&R with this, right? Why is everyone talking like it's one or the other? Pretty sure P&R is coming back regardless later this season

    (thought the episode was pretty boring)

    I thought it was good, and will probably watch again next week. But that's considering that my expectations were about as low as possible going in.

    And yeah, Parks and Rec was my favorite comedy series last season and needs to come back ASAP.

    P&R was designated as a mid-season replacement in favor of this show which took its spot in NBCs Thursday night lineup. If this is cancelled, Parks could be given the spot back fairly soon, they already have the episodes filmed.

    As someone who has worked a lot with Indian IT support folks through my career, I thought I'd give it a shot. I thought it was mediocre, but I could see the potential.

    Agreed. That show was stupid. Diedrich just can't catch a break after Drew Carey.

    Too bad -- I thought "Outsourced" was very funny. Maybe one of the other networks will pick it up.

    What-the-What?! They canceled "Better With You" and "Mad Love."

    The series finale of "Smallville" was a letdown. Maybe they can now focus on a "Super Friends" series, without all the romance stuff.

    Perfect Couples was incredibly stupid, even worse than Outsourced, it might have been even worse than the Paul Riser Show

    Perfect Couples at least had a cast. The thing about sitcoms is they are so universally sh!tty, that the bar is pretty low for what is watchable. Perfect Couples wasn't worthy of a second season, but the first season wasn't insufferable. Even Paul Reiser's show was admittedly a CYE ripoff, just without the likable versus self-loathing character dimension. And without laughs.

    Outsourced had nothing going for it. It had no where to grow, and nothing to build on. A weak leading man, few funny if even relatable characters, save for a shell of what Diedrich can be. Even sitcoms with arguably less room to build on the initial concept, like Community or The League, found their niche with audiences as the episodes progressed, but IMO Outsourced just spun in place. I'm shocked that NBC felt it favorable to half a season of Parks and Recreation.
