Tv Season Info

It's the last Chance for one of TV's most delightfully dysfunctional families as the sitcom comes to an end with its fourth season. Highlights include Virginia (Martha Plimpton) learning the identity of her father; Burt (Garret Dillahunt) running for mayor of Natesville so his wife can have the honor of plugging in the town's Christmas tree; Sabrina (Shannon Woodward) deciding to officially adopt Hope (Baylie and Rylie Cregut); Jimmy (Lucas Neff) trying to prove that he's still attractive to women even without his daughter in tow; another visit from Virginia's hated cousin Delilah (Amy Sedaris); Maw Maw (Cloris Leachman) dating an old stoner (Tommy Chong); and an opportunity for Howdy's to host the International Grocery Games. Guest stars include Jeffrey Tambor, Shirley Jones, Diedrich Bader and Judith Light, and Kenny Loggins appears in the series finale.

Critic Reviews for Raising Hope: Season 4

{It] gets so sentimental it's almost gooey.

Sorry, Fox network. Your attempt to hide "Raising Hope" by moving it to 9 p.m. Fridays hasn't diminished the joy of watching the quirky sitcom's secret weapon: Martha Plimpton and Garret Dillahunt as blue-collar free spirits Virginia and Burt Chance.

Raising Hope knows how to leave its audience laughing. And maybe just a little teary. But in a good way.

This feel-good show not only makes me reflect on my own family, but it even makes me feel better about my own family.

New showrunner Mike Mariano wrote the season premiere, which begins a bit more broadly than usual but eventually comes around to a more on point, somewhat unexpected conclusion that flies in the face of political correctness.

The series' ensemble is filled with comedic heavy-hitters, and every single actor knows exactly which beats to hit and just how to hit them.
