114822_9084_pre "Better Off Ted," you are hilarious! Not only do you deliver consistently sharp, witty snaps of office life and make the ethically questionable funny, but when you're preempted by President Obama's news conference (those of us on the West Coast expecting the season finale had to make do with a repeat instead), you don't just sit there — you do something about it (yes, you can!). In response to having to give up precious airtime, "BOT" creator Victor Fresco popped out this ingenious faux commercial from Veridian Dynamics (the company featured on the show), as reported on

The season finale will now air on ABC next Tuesday at 8:30 p.m. Though whether or not this underrated and overlooked freshman series will return next season has yet to be determined. Hasn't the show suffered enough? How many creamers will it take to save this quirky gem?
