Critic Consensus: Bouyed by strong acting and a sharp, funny script, Better Off Ted is a fresh, clever satire, even if it may not appeal to a particularly broad audience.

I'd attribute its core mediocrity to the sense of risk aversion at the forefront of big-media minds as they all face the prospect of working in little media.
It's a breath of fresh air in the present stale environment for TV comedy, as well as an accidentally timely show.
The new ABC show is significantly better than its corny title promises.
A funny, fast-paced and rather refreshing new sitcom that looks at contemporary office life in much the same way as the comic strip Dilbert.
Certainly the most promising of recent sitcoms, Ted approaches the world of big pharmaceuticals with spot-on satire but peoples it with likeable characters for a combo that's as timely as it is entertaining.
