Fox Raises Second Season For ‘Hope’

Tuesday, January 11 by

Raising Hope“, Fox’s freshman single camera sitcom, will live to see its titular newborn crawl and perhaps even walk next Fall, as the network has ordered a second season of the popular comedy. The series, about a down on his luck single dad with a crazy family raising a baby who is the product of a one night stand he had with a woman who was executed on death row (don’t worry, she totally deserved it), has taken a rather high concept and run with it quite nicely. Audiences seem to agree, as “Hope” is the number one new series of this past season among viewers under 35, partially thanks to the fact that its lead-in is ratings juggernaut and drama kid bait”Glee“. The series debuted this fall, paired with the equally high concept and name-of-character-in-titled “Running Wilde“, starring Will Arnett, which failed to garner the same positive reviews or ratings. Creator Greg Garcia‘s previous show, “My Name Is Earl”, ran for four full seasons and drew to a close in 2009.

    I love this show. The writing is brilliant. I love to laugh and this show gives me a triple dose every week. I am just disappointed that Fox has stop showng it. I would rather watch reruns of Raising Hope any day over Million Dollar Drop. My entire family likes the show. I am over 40 too.
