'Raising Hope' Showrunner Bids Farewell to Fox Comedy (Guest Column)

4 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Raising Hope will end its four-season run on Friday with an hourlong episode that takes the comedy back to its roots. The series was created by Greg Garcia (My Name Is Earl), who exited the 20th Century Fox TV comedy ahead of season four after inking an overall deal with rival studio CBS Television Studios. Longtime Garcia collaborator Mike Mariano was tapped showrunner of the comedy starring Martha Plimpton, Garret Dillahunt and Lucas Neff last March. A year, a move to Fridays and 22 episodes later, Mariano was the one charged with creating a season finale that, as it

'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 After Four Seasons

13 March 2014 3:58 AM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

After four years and plenty of struggle, Fox has decided that enough is enough: Raising Hope has been cancelled, leaving the rest of us to assume that Hope Chance is going to be just fine. What was once merely its Season 4 finale will now be Raising Hope’s series finale. I would say that Raising Hope is too young to die, but it had a pretty good run. It’s not like Fox has had great luck with comedies, even though Raising Hope was the first in a long time to be mildly successful when it first premiered. Hats off to Greg Garcia for creating the show and congratulations to the entire cast and crew for making it so enjoyable these last four years.

According to Deadline, Fox will be airing the hour-long farewell on Friday, April 4. Back-to-back episodes will air from 9-10 Pm. Thankfully, the writers had a feeling »

Fox Has Canceled Raising Hope - Will You Miss It?

10 March 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

After four seasons, Fox has canceled Raising Hope. The show, starring Lucas Neff, Martha Plimpton, and Garret Dillahunt, will end with an hourlong episode to air on April 4 at 9 p.m. Though the show will live on in syndication, fans will no doubt be disappointed that no new episodes will be produced. The decision comes days after Fox greenlit a handful of shows for new seasons, including The Mindy Project. "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," producer Mike Mariano said in a statement. "We planned our season-four finale with this possibility in mind and hope our loyal fans enjoy the way we've chosen to say good-bye to the Chances and to Natesville." »

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.
