It was as if they grabbed an old season finale from “The Wire” and somehow morphed it into a sitcom.
Don’t worry, summer only seems like it lasts forever.
“I saw this on ‘Modern Family’, and countless other sitcoms.”
Looking sexy while drinking from a hose is hard work.
At TCA, the cast and creators shared breakfast and spoilers. Yum!
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.
Bijou Phillips is no stranger to the limelight.

The setup it takes to make Jimmy (Lucas Neff) a single dad is outrageous. By about 10 minutes in, I couldn’t believe how far they took it. I don’t know if they’re going to be able to do this every week, but I hope so. Aside from the shocking dark comedy, the humor is just joyfully immature. They say “wiener” and that makes me smile. The characters’ behaviors are so outrageous and politically incorrect, only Fox would put this show on.
The new comedy “Raising Hope” is a family show, Fox-style. Jimmy (Lucas Neff) still lives at home with his parents (Martha Plimpton and Garret Dillahunt) and grandma (Cloris Leachman). They’re…
