Episode 02-02: Tuesday, 9/27/11
Like lead-in New Girl, this sitcom lost just 6% episode-to-episode in the demo. It attracted a 2.9 rating with 6.14 million. That represents Raising Hope’s fifth highest-rated episode and well above what it was doing at the end of last season. It’s amazing what a difference a good lead-in can make.
Season average: 3.0 demo with 6.44 million.

Episode 02-01: Tuesday, 9/20/11
The sitcom had a positive start to the season with a 3.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 6.73 million viewers. It matched it’s own year-to-year demo rating which is especially positive if you consider that the numbers had come way down by the end of the first season. Hopefully it will continue to benefit from having New Girl as a lead-in.


Reference point: The 2010-11 season averaged a 2.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 6.04 million viewers.

Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

What do you think? Do you like the Raising Hope TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a third season?

I HOPE, HOPE, HOPE that this show continues for at least a couple more years. Not only is it perfect casting but I agree with others who commented that this is one show that will make you LOL at least a few times every episode. And they represent the 99%! Almost everyone knows people that are just as ordinary as the Chances! The fact they can be so politically incorrect is one of the things I like about it. Personally, I don’t think New Girl is as good because it seems New Girl has become all about sex, sex and more sex. If it weren’t for Zooey I wouldn’t watch it. Which brings me to the point that I have noticed Fox is heavily promoting new episodes of New Girl while now the first nail in Raising Hope’s coffin is it’s being moved to the 8PM time slot on Tuesdays. NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!! Maybe there is a CHANCE to keep HOPE alive!!

I JUST discovered this show. In about two days, I went through all of them on Netflix and all of season 2 on Hulu plus. This is pretty much my favorite show on television. At least, it’s my biggest obsession, now.

IT IS TOO FUN TO WATCH A SHOW THAT IS A LAUGH A MINUTE!/it neat to watch one show that makes you LOL and takes your mind off of everyday drama! KEEP RENEWING IT & AND NOMINATE IT FOR AWARDS,TOO!

Eric Bridges February 16, 2012 at 4:12 am

This is a great family show with a great cast. But do I think that it should be renewed? I look at show potential for plot-line and character development. I also look at the nature of the show compared to others in primetime. Lastly, I look at a shows capacity for future viewership. My final analysis is that the show needs a season 3 & 4.

Shawna Scott February 15, 2012 at 1:47 pm

KEEP IT! It is too dang funny! The only show I wait for and tune into each and every week!

Teri February 14, 2012 at 11:40 pm

We all LOVE Hope! This show deserves to be renewed. It is utterly underappreciated even though the writing and cast are brilliant. Please keep it!

Teresa February 14, 2012 at 8:29 pm

After watching tonight’s episode, I am saddened to think that it is being cancelled. It’s so funny and one of the only shows EVERYONE likes in the family. The characters crack us up, and the endings are always a delight. Please keep this original show going!

Randy February 5, 2012 at 3:05 pm

Love this show!! KEEP IT. If married w/children can make it 8,9, seasons so can this!!!!

Becky January 20, 2012 at 11:50 pm

LOVE this show, please don’t cancel. It is funny and so real. I love the way the family works together and wants to provide a good life for Hope. It always has a sweet ending. They demonstrate how amazing a family can be without all the “stuff” society tells we need to be happy or successful. For crying out loud – they have fun with a balloon and a sofa! I love this family…. Plus MawMaw is a hoot!

Cora October 19, 2011 at 8:29 pm
