Hello, any Better Off Ted fans out there? We know you're there and you love it, but there aren't enough of you!
Better Off Ted was in a bit of cancellation danger last season, but pulled through for a new season, only to be greeted with a whole lot of no one watching... and then dropping to even less watching. Ouch. And so begins our efforts to save this hilarious show!
Cancellation Buzz Status:
Here's the rundown for Ted:
Season 1 Premiere: 5.64 million viewers
Season 2 Premiere: 3.81 million viewers
Then, probably because of a death wish, ABC ran off some Ted episodes over the holidays when no one was watching, then apparently in a panic that both their Tuesday night comedies, Scrubs and Ted, were looking bleak, they tried to appeal to viewers' past-Scrubs love to get viewers to watch both comedies as they're airing double episodes of each, mashed in with each other.
So how's that going? Double episodes aired 1/5/10:
Episode 6: 2.99 million viewers
Episode 7: 2.6 million viewers
I'm going to go out on a limb and say that's not helping. So what WILL help, you ask?
