That time of year has come rather early this year. The cancellation scare time. And while some shows have been lucky (Modern Family, The Middle, already renewed for 2nd season, and that's a good thing) other shows are being pushed over the edge. Two of the shows in most peril, and practically already written off, are Scrubs and Better Off Ted, both on Tuesdays on ABC.
Now, even though I have been a loving and loyal fan of Scrubs for 8 years, and stayed with them through thick and thin, I believe the show has run it's course and that it is time to let it ride off gentle into TV night. It should have been done last season, but whatever. It turned out to be an experiment with supposedly noble intentions that has gone rotten.
On the other hand, Better Off Ted has actually not yet had a chance to truly shine, even though, and I believe I am not alone in this, it is the best show on any network right now. It is one of those shows that makes you go back to each episode at least twice, and every time you can discover a new joke just beneath those three jokes that already had you falling off of your chair...
Better Off Ted has not received the treatment it deserves, even though it has collected the praise it has earned.Whether for shortsightedness of the powers-that-be or something completely different, Ted is in danger. Let's not flush the baby with the bath water (Ted being the baby, Scrubs the bath water ).
Save Ted campaigns have begun, and you can join, and help give Better Off Ted the chance it deserves.Thank you.
