My Name Is Earl: Did You Catch the Shout Out in Raising Hope?

IMAGEAs fans of My Name Is Earl know all too well, the NBC sitcom was cancelled after four seasons. The Jason Lee TV show didn’t get a true series finale and many people still want to know how the story ended.

Well, Greg Garcia has a new show on FOX called Raising Hope. The tone of the show is reminiscent of Earl in some ways and Garcia even included a shout out to his old NBC show in the pilot episode.

It comes midway through the episode. After Jimmy (Lucas Neff) and his family learn that his new “girlfriend” is a serial killer, the news anchor teases the next story. He says, “In lighter news, a small-time crook with a long list of wrongs he was making amends for has finally finished, and you’ll never guess how it ended…” Of course, the TV gets unplugged before we hear the rest.

You can watch the scene below.

What do you think? If Raising Hope isn’t cancelled, would you like to hear more Earl mentions? Maybe even see a cameo or two?
