This Week's Match-ups
Show: 30 Rock
Title: Head Writer of TGS with Tracy Jordan
Even if she doesn't always have herself completely together, Liz somehow manages to keep her dramatic team afloat. If you're looking for an office full of humor, geekdom, and take-out, Liz is your gal.
Show: The Office
Title: Regional Salesman
Jim is great at what he does—but his true skill lies in crafting world-class pranks (stapler in Jell-O, anyone?). Oh, and he also has a habit of office romances—keep your eye on him, ladies.
Show: Mad Men
Title: Creative Director
He's smart, he's mysterious, and he can drink a few cocktails and still get the job done. You might have to work hard to get a raise out of him (and you probably wouldn't want to be married to him), but he's the best ad exec around.
Show: The Mindy Project
Mindy brings brains, ambition, fun, and, of course, a healthy dose of drama to the workplace. Although her interviewing skills leave something to be desired, she's the consummate team player, and hey, a little oversharing keeps things interesting, right?

The true brain and heart behind Uber operations, Dewey has traveled to over 15 of Uber's satellite offices. When not coding or launching cities, she enjoys tipping over and rummaging through Uber's trash cans, paying her respect to drivers via submissive peeing, and resting her head on your keyboard.
When Lemony isn't sprinting around the office, accidentally running into the deceptively clear walls, she is napping, eating leftovers in the kitchen, and contemplating whether or not she does, in fact, want to be in the same room as CEO David Barrett while he meets with investors. Lemony is a shining example of how to manage the stresses of modern society.
Breed: Pembroke Welsh Corgi
Company: The Muse
Breed: French Bulldog
