NBC picks up 'LOLA,' 'Outsourced' and 'The Event' for full seasons

NBC has picked up full-season orders on three of its new series: "Law & Order: Los Angeles," Thursday comedy "Outsourced," and serialized drama "The Event."

So far this new TV season, Fox's "Raising Hope" has also received a full season order. ABC stopped short of ordering a full season of "No Ordinary Family," but did the next best thing and ordered more scripts.

Your move, CBS...

It's sad that NBC has decided to pick up additional episodes of Outsourced, a show that insults those who have had their jobs outsourced to India. There is nothing funny about losing a job especially in this economy. It's obvious the writers and producers of this show have never been to India to train the people who are going to take the jobs of their friends and colleagues. If they had maybe they wouldn't have had the Indians working during the day, outsourcing is done at night since India is 9.5 or 10.5 hours ahead of the US depending on the time of year. Most Indians in an outsourced environment make about $100 per week. A lot less than a burger flipper in the US and most are nice people with college educations. NBC should be ashamed of themselves for making fun of the Indians and thinking that Americans living in and training in India is funny. It's not, it's hard work in a difficult sensory overloaded landscape. It's a sad commentary on our society that this even gets on the air. The writers should spend a month or two in Delhi or Gurgaon & see what it's like, it's no laughing matter.
