'Better Off Ted'
"Better Off Ted," ABC
Nomination Status: We're getting into personal preferences at this point.
In Its Favor: Line for line, sight gag for sight gag, there's a distinct possibility that "Better Off Ted" was the funniest show on TV for the past two seasons. ABC was never really committed to giving the show a chance and mainstream audiences ignored the show accordingly. Emmy voters also ignored and probably will continue to. It's hard not to feel like if "Better Off Ted" aired on NBC after "The Office," a lot of things would have gone differently, audience-wise and Emmy-wise.
Working Against It: Lousy, pesky reality.
