Tv Season Info

Series 3 begins on a somber note for Sabrina (Shannon Woodward) with the death of her grandmother (Tippi Hedren), but the funeral has a happy ending when Jimmy (Lucas Neff) asks Sabrina to marry him. Later, Sabrina's mother (Hedren's real-life daughter, Melanie Griffith) gets into the act by hiring ABC's "Modern Family" crew to film their wedding, and Barney (Gregg Binkley) treats the couple to a honeymoon in Los Angeles, where Hope (Baylie and Rylie Cregut) is tapped for a role in her favourite TV show, "Yo Zappa Do!" In other Chance events, Virginia (Martha Plimpton) is convinced the world will end before Christmas; Maw Maw (Cloris Leachman) temporarily moves out; and Burt (Garret Dillahunt) learns shocking news about his ancestry from his parents (Shirley Jones, Lee Majors). Guest stars include Kate Micucci, Jason Lee, Jaime Pressly, Wilmer Valderrama, Christopher Lloyd, Hilary Duff and Leslie Jordan.

Critic Reviews for Raising Hope Season 3

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

This week's episode of Raising Hope as the best representation of a gay bar I've ever seen on a "straight" TV show. The characters' curiosity about "what goes on in those places" was genuine and sweet.

What I love about the show, besides the earnest affection all the characters seem to have for one another (seriously, Raising Hope is the least cynical sitcom on television) is how effortlessly clever the show manages to be.

It's fitting that we get a great season premiere that shows us how this can be one of the laugh out loud funniest shows on TV, while also making you squeal "Awww!"

It will not disappoint - if your threshold for demented silliness is fairly high.

Oct 10, 2012 | Full Review…

You'd be hard-pressed to find a funnier, better-performed portrait of loving yet blissfully inept parenting than you get every week from Martha Plimpton and Garret Dillahunt.

Apr 3, 2019 | Full Review…

Like its characters, "Raising Hope" doesn't much care what you think of it... It makes some sense that it flies under the radar: it's smart because it isn't afraid to look dumb.
