As 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.
