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 still like the Raising Hope TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a fourth season?

My boyfriend and I started watching this show after I learned that they put little hidden gems in it from My Name is Earl which was another great show by the same people that got canceled
…me and my bf fell in love with this show. Its so easy to relate to and it is sooo funny. Would be a shame if they canceled it anytime soon.

Great show, always funny and I always look forward to watching it!
Though I agree with a comment above, it needs to be promoted more!!
I am a fan on facebook and was very surprised the “Raising Hope” only has 668,109
fans that in itself should tell you it needs more promoting!
Fox has a habbit of promoting shows that worked for them in the past and keeping them around and milking them dry! Lets face it once you seen 1 reality singing show you’ve seen them all! And what the heck is with Bob’s Burgers?!?!? I don’t know a single person who actually likes that show yet it’s never been axed.. The Simpsons are great don’t get me wrong I grew up with them and like the show but they’ve been running with that show for 20+ years…
Come on this show is like a diamond in the rough. It’s fresh, funny, filled with great actors/actresses and it has Cloris freaking Leachman you can’t go wrong!
This show can be huge if given the chance. And I strongly believe it should be considering half hour comedies are probably at there lowest point on every network right now..
Even if they need to find a better time slot or night…
It would be very sad to see Raising Hope go because the network let the program and it’s fans down.

I really like the show but last Tues’ ep about Jimmy’s bachelor party and strange marriage was a far gone & off the deep end. I hope it gets back on track otherwise this could signal its death keel.

Please don’t cancel ‘Raising Hope’!!!
It is one of the few consistently funny shows on TV. I spend each episode laughing my head off. The characters are offbeat and eccentric, but very lovable. The cast is full of talented actors who really bring the characters to life. And the writers are great–somehow they come up with a clever, original, hilarious new show every week.
Fox Network, if you are smart, you will promote it more and give it another season, at least.

This show needs more viewers. Its been consistently hilarious. What’s more is the writing and acting are phenomenal. It’s hard to right stupid characters that you can enjoy and are funny, but Raising Hope hits it right on the dot.
