* MagnificentBastard: Jim Profit is a completely amoral sociopath, but you just root for him. His only goal is to become President of Acquisitions at Grayson & Grayson and thereby control one of the most powerful economic blocks in the country. He manages to repeatedly get away with blackmail, murder and even maiming the company to frame others for it and get ahead himself. He expertly manipulates his colleagues, their families and anyone else he deals with. Any attempts to foil him often feed right into his hand, as he always has a backup plan ready and is outsmarted in one of his many plots exactly once in the entire series.

* CharacterDevelopment: Oddly, for Jim Profit himself. In the first episode he is single-minded in the pursuit of the coveted “President of Operations” position, to the point of being willing to tear Pete and Chaz apart. In the final episode, he has the opportunity to do so again, but turns it down to reconcile the brothers. He’s put aside his blind ambition in favor of another goal, maintaining his twisted view of family.

* AudienceAlienatingPremise: This show featured a VillainProtagonist before other shows dabbled with the concept. It didn't last a single season.
