Fringe Vs. Outsourced: Only One Can Survive in the 'Renew Our Show' Tourney

Get yer “votin’ fingers” limbered up! It’s time for the final first-round matchup of the “Renew Our Show!” Sweet 16 Bracket Tournament. Today, our bout is between two shows that couldn’t be more different if they tried: Fox’s Friday night thriller Fringe takes on NBC’s Thursday night sitcom Outsourced, and their fates are in your hands!

“Renew Our Show!” features 16 existing on-the-bubble series; we left out the sure-fire pickups and those to which the Grim Reaper has already paid a visit. (If you’re worried about the status of anything currently on your DVR “series-recording” lineup, don’t miss our regularly updated Renewal Scorecard feature.)
