Profit, FOX
IMDb; TV.com; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

This only aired like four episodes, out of eight that were produced. I'm not even sure if I saw all four of them, and I don't remember the show in any detail, but I do remember thinking it was brilliant, as well as twisted and bizarre. The main character was Jim Profit, who was clearly insane, but doing his best to climb the corporate ladder by any means at his disposal. (He was played by Adrian Pasdar, whom I'd later see a bit of in "Mysterious Ways" and even more in Heroes.) The show really should have lasted longer, but I guess it was just too dark and disturbing for most people. Some folks just don't care for evil protagonists. Go figure.
