Jonathan Slavin and Malcolm Barrett of 'Better off Ted'
Jonathan Slavin and Malcolm Barrett, 'Better off Ted'
Nomination Status: Probably not on the radar.
Bottom Line: As great as Jeffster! is on "Chuck," Phil and Lem (Phlem?) may someday grow to be just as funny on "Better Off Ted," or at least they would if anybody would watch the show and it eventually made it to a third or fourth season. Both Slavin and Barrett had what should count as Emmy Episodes. If voters actually watch Slavin in the pilot or Barrett in "Racial Sensitivity," they'll see some of the season's very best supporting comedy work. But Phil wouldn't want to get a nomination if Lem couldn't get one. And Lem wouldn't want a nomination if Phil couldn't get one. So maybe it's best that Emmy voters have never even heard of "Better Off Ted."
