Did you miss seeing Better Off Ted tonight because it was pre-empted for the President’s press conference? Well, the creator of the show, Victor Fresco, was a tad (a ted?) put out too — after all, Better Off is struggling in the ratings, and doesn’t need a sudden yank from prime-time to further confuse its hardy band of viewers. So he whipped up this response to the Presidential airwave-domination, in the form of a fake commercial for the show’s company, Veridian Dynamics:

Let’s face it: ABC should be renewing Better Off Ted for this spot alone. And I’ll add: Save Better Off Ted! My campaign starts now. I’ll be writing about the show again next week.

But why wait? Tell me if you want Ted renewed, please.
