TV Suffering from 'Slumdog Millionaire' Fever

(In my best Christopher Walken voice, which really isn't all that good) Guess what? Your TV has a fever! And the only prescription... is more 'Slumdog Millionaire' type shows!

The critical and financial success of the plucky little independent Bollywood-esque drama that brought 'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?' back into your consciousness just as it was leaving has inspired several upcoming TV comedies with heavy Indian-themes.

Fox has greenlit 'Nirvana,' an Indian-American family sitcom and NBC has picked up 'Outsourced,' another office comedy about an American manager who is sent to India to manage a customer service department. Would you be interested in watching these shows, even if you had never heard of 'Slumdog Millionaire'?
