Outsourced is an American sitcom that came like a shooting star and was already gone before the audience could effectively connect with the characters.
Nonetheless, the TV series was deliriously loved by the audience, garnering a rating of 93% on Google Reviews and 7.6/10 on IMDb.
Though critics roasted the show on Rotten Tomatoes, giving a 34% rating, the audience backed it up with a 73% score. One fan reviewed, 'One of the best sitcoms ever… I loved it to the core. So sad that it ended so soon. I'm still a lil upset at NBC for cancelling it…'
Unfortunately, the audience had to bid goodbye to the NBC sitcom after only one season, claiming that its ratings kept dwindling. Despite that predicament, you can still access the full 22 episodes of the show from your screen.
