'Raising Hope,' 'How I Met Your Mother' and the obligation of a 'Legendary!' finale

4 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Our TV week is bookended by sitcom goodbyes. It began with the series finale of How I Met Your Mother; it concludes with the capper to Raising Hope, tapping out tonight with back-to-back episodes, including one cheekily entitled “How I Met Your Mullet.” Created by Greg Garcia, who also gave us My Name Is Earl, the four-season-running Raising Hope was a sweet-and-salty sitcom about the daffy-dumb Chance clan — Virginia, the responsible materfamilias (Martha Plimpton); Burt, the air-headed dad (Garret Dillahunt); Jimmy, the teen-son-turned-teen-father (Lucas Neff); and Maw-Maw, the cracked and coarse grandma (Cloris Leachman) — collectively raising the titular babe, and was always a big-hearted, »

Fox cancels 'Raising Hope,' sets series finale for April

10 March 2014 12:35 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Given its consistently low ratings, it's somewhat astounding that "Raising Hope" managed to get four often terrific seasons on Fox.  It's still sad to report that "Raising Hope" will have its series finale on Friday, April 4 with an hour-long send-off. "On behalf of myself, Greg Garcia and 'Raising Hope's' amazing cast and crew, I would like to thank our audience for tuning in and supporting us over the last four seasons," blurbs executive producer Mike Mariano, who took over as showrunner for Garcia this season. "We planned our Season Four finale with this possibility in mind, and hope our loyal fans enjoy the way we’ve chosen to say goodbye to the Chances and to Natesville. Thanks again, and we’ll see you in syndication." Often aired in erratic patterns with lengthy hiatuses, doubled-up episodes and early finales, "Raising Hope" will still hit 88 episodes by its finale. During its run, »

Fox’s ‘Raising Hope’ Cancelled After Four Seasons

10 March 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: It’s the end of the road for Fox‘s quirky family comedy Raising Hope, with the upcoming fourth-season finale serving as series finale. The blue-collar sitcom will bow out with an hourlong farewell on Friday, April 4, featuring back-to-back episodes from 9-10 Pm. Created by Greg Garcia, Raising Hope was the first comedy series in a while to stick at Fox. It proved a good utility player, doing well behind New Girl but also as a 8 Pm anchor of the Tuesday comedy block last season. “Getting to know and love the Chance family on Raising Hope has been a sweet, hilarious ride,” said Fox chairman Kevin Reilly and COO Joe Earley. “Thanks to the incredibly talented cast — along with Greg, Mike and the entire crew — for making us laugh for four fantastic seasons.” Raising Hope had the odds stacked against it going into Season 4.

The 10 Most Fabulous Best Supporting Actress Oscar Wins

28 February 2014 8:15 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

In case you haven’t noticed, I’m whipped into a cackling fugue state about the Oscars. I’m in love with the damn Oscars. In fact, I’m suspicious of people who don’t love the Oscars. And here we are with my favorite Oscar countdown to date: the 10 most fabulous Best Supporting Actress-winning performances. Keep in mind this isn’t the same thing as the 10 best Best Supporting Actress performances. I wrote that list years ago and declared Sandy Dennis, Patty Duke, Cloris Leachman, Meryl Streep, and Kim Hunter the supreme supporting ladies. My feelings have not changed. But it’s time to honor the fabulous performances, the supporting actresses who bring whizzbang, panache, sexual superiority, and fun to an occasionally dour category. Here are the 10 most fab winners of my favorite Oscar.

Is Prizzi’s Honor essential viewing? No. But Anjelica Huston’s thick, »

We're in the 86th annual Oscar voting window and two weeks from today, we'll know the champions of the 2014 Academy Awards. Winners in the performance categories seem to be all lined up, though we've gotten a surprise in those four arenas the last couple of years. Maybe we'll get a few this year, too, but come what may, a quartet (or maybe more if there's a tie — who knows, given the events of this season) will join the echelon of Oscar winning actors dating back to inaugural victors Emil Jannings and Janet Gaynor on March 2. With that in mind, HitFix's awards staff put our heads together to come up with a list of the best of, well, the best. We dug through the 325 actors and actresses to win (competitive) Academy Awards for screen performances over the years and we were left with 25 sterling examples from AMPAS' gallery of titans — well, »
