Fox is picking up the freshman comedy Raising Hope for a full season, the network announced Wednesday, making the series the first new fall show to get a such a pickup this year.
"With Raising Hope, Greg Garcia captures a smart take on the working-class family with a great mix of wild comedy and a big dose of heart," Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly said in a statement. "The show is running like a Swiss clock, and we're very happy with how well audiences have responded so far — so we're confident it will build an even bigger audience throughout the season."
Raising Hope premiered to 7.5 million viewers last month. The series' most recent episode attracted 6.3 million viewers. The show has benefited from its lead-in, Glee.
The series, starring Lucas Neff and Martha Plimpton, follows a young man who becomes a single dad and how his family helps him raise the baby. The series comes from My Name is Earl creator Greg Garcia.
"I'm really happy for our incredibly talented cast and very hard-working crew. They have done an amazing job and deserve this," Garcia said. "Me? I was looking forward so some time off, but I guess that's not going to happen."
