MidSeason TV: Better off Ted

I caught the first episode of Better off Ted (EW) on the other night and enjoyed it thoroughly. It's a "witty satire of a soulless multinational corporation" - like a Dilbert + the Office meets the media caricature of Halliburton (only with less of a conscience) laced with delicious and bitter passive aggressiveness.

From the single dad talking to the camera about his daughter and presumed ex-wife, my favorite line so far: "when Rose was four, her mom left us to go save the world. It's been hard on Rose, frankly, not so great for the world either."
