It's not surprising that NBC is so out of touch here. Studios think nothing of outsourcing productions to Vancouver or Prague or whever they can make a movie the cheapest, to the detriment of the Hollywood crews that made the studios so successful. So of course, being completely insensitive to the issue, it would not even have occurred to them that this might not be such a great time for a show about outsourcing. Idiots.
Nice. Gotta love being so narrow minded to not even give a show a chance. Maybe it'll be funny, maybe it won't, but we won't know until we see an episode.
Many people wanted P&R to fail from the onset but luckily it got better and the fanbase grew and here we are lamenting that it's a mid-season replacement. Hate to think what would have happened to P&R and many other shows if people were hoping it would fail before they even got to see one episode.
Like I've said many times, this Outsourced show is based on a film of the same name. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0425326/
It can be rented on netlix. At the very least check out that movie before giving an opinion on a yet-to-be aired comedy TV show.
But if people can get through the entire pilot of Outsourced, that would be better than some with the P&R pilot (from this thread):

On a positive note, it is slightly funnier than Cavemen.
