Fans mobilize to save Better Off Ted

Frankly, I was surprised that ABC gave Better Off Ted a second season at all. Don't get me wrong, I was pleasantly surprised, because I absolutely adore the show, but ABC didn't seem to have much confidence in it, and ratings weren't exactly out of this world. So, as a fan, I guess I should be thankful that I'm still seeing new episodes, but I'm still kind of annoyed that ABC seems to be burying this hilarious show.
Along with Zombie Scrubs, it was basically the only new show on the air over the holidays-- when nobody was home to watch. They're doubling up episodes and seem to be burning them off as quickly as possible. Fans have already seen the writing on the wall, and are beginning to mobilize to save Ted. Between the #saveted hashtag on Twitter, and the new site, SaveBetterOffTed.com, people are letting it be known that they do not want this show to go off the air.
SaveBetterOffTed.com is a brand-new site, so it's really looking for reader support to help get it off the ground. All campaigns have to start somewhere, so here's your opportunity to organize. They're looking for your favorite quotes, and other Ted-related fun. Fans managed to get us a third season of Chuck, so why not Ted?
If you know of any other efforts to save Better off Ted, feel free to leave the info in the comments!
