The Return of Better Off Ted!

at . Comments

Thanks to ABC, summer programming won't consist solely of reality TV and episodes of already-canceled programs.

Better Off Ted returns tonight with the first of six new episodes. The comedy, which will return for a second season this fall,  comes back this evening with an installment that weighs the idea of whether a boss can also be a friend.

During the half hour, Veronica shares far too much about her personal live with Linda and Ted. Here's a clip:

As for the next six weeks, star Jay Harrison dished on what fans can expect to see:

We get a chance to see a little bit of Portia's dual life. We develop a technology that scans photos -- instead of finding text like Google does, it's more of facial recognition. So anything that's been on the Internet forever comes up.

We use her as an example in the meeting and we find a peculiar position, sort of a moonlighting gig that she's been doing. [Laughs] It's not as nefarious as it sounds. It's more of a relationship she may or may not have had with a magician. So we get to see a different side of Portia's character, which is nice.

Ted: What about that memo announcing "Casual Fribsday"?
Janet: The company said that wasn't a mistake. They explained that the ancient Mayans prophesied Fribsday--the first ever eighth day of the week which will occur in 2024. Which the company believes should be celebrated casually. I'm going to wear a denim pantsuit.
Ted: And when they urged all employees to "carpoop"?
Janet: That wasn't mandatory. Thank God.
Ted: Although we did find out what people would do to park slightly closer to the building.

Okay, people, we need to turn this simple festive gourd into a killer. I've asked Dr. Bamba to take a look at how Nature does it, because Nature is a fantastic killer of things
