Better Off Ted was a sitcom produced in the U.S. by 20th Century Fox and ABC Studios that was cancelled by the ABC network before the end of its second season. The show revolved around the character of Ted Crisp, played by Jay Harrington and his quest to stay morally correct as he worked for a large faceless corporation with questionable attitudes to its employees and customers.
The show was created by veteran television writer and executive Victor Fresco; the shows created by Fresco have regularly gained cult status despite low viewing figures, such as the sitcom Andy Richter Controls The Universe. Despite being a critical success in the U.S. Better Off Ted failed to build on low viewing figures through its two season run on the ABC network.
Better Off Ted highlighted the difficulty in trying to raise a family and keep a high moral standard when a parent is employed by a morally questionable corporation. Ted Crisp works for the Research and Development department of Veridian Dynamics, a company that meddles in politics and tests its new products on its own employees. The titular character of Ted struggles to balance his employment with his role as a single parent to daughter Rose. Ted's character is further challenged by his relationship with his department head Veronica, played by Portia de Rossi and his relationship with love interest Linda Zworling.
Some of the most entertaining and funniest moments in the show came through Ted's interactions with scientists in his research department. Dr. Phil Myman and Dr. Lem Hewitt, played by Jonathan Slavin and Malcolm Barrett respectively; both scientists avoid conflicts at all cost and follow the instructions of Veridian without question. In total 26 episodes of Better Off Ted were produced during the two seasons of the sitcom.
Following the cancellation of Better Off Ted the main characters in the cast were reunited in a music video for a song performed by Malcolm Barrett. Performing under the pseudonym Verbal the five main cast members performed in the video for Revenge Of The Nerds.
