Kevin Reilly, President, Entertainment for Fox Broadcasting Company said in a press release, “Raising Hope has emerged as a comedic standout: wickedly smart, hilarious and full of heart. Greg Garcia and his great cast have established an appointment show on Tuesday nights this season, and we’re confident it’s just the beginning of great things to come.

Garcia said, “I’m happpy that the show is getting another year. But the fact that I’ve been trying to think of a funny quote for the last two hours and this is the best I could come up with makes a little nervous about Season Two.
