My very last interview of press tour came late at ABC's party, when Fienberg and I ran into "Better Off Ted" creator Victor Fresco. At that point, I was a little too delirious from sleep deprivation to be conversant on my own, but with Dan there, we muddled through. I had hoped to write it up myself before ABC airs the final two "Ted"s of the season tonight at 9 & 9:30, but my "Mad Men" season three review got bumped up a day (note the new blog logo), and that's consuming most of my time. Fortunately, Dan already has his own account of the interview up at HitFix, so go over there to read Fresco's take on the summer run, inconsistent scheduling, the strengths of his cast, and the appearance of Rachelle Lefevre (famous to the world from "Twilight," but known to Fresco from "Life on a Stick") in the second of tonight's two episodes.
One thing Dan didn't include in his story: when I asked Fresco why all the Veridian Dynamics commercials weren't easily available online, and particularly why they weren't all up on the official Veridian website, he seemed surprised, and said he was going to look into that today.
