Raising Hope previews

Raising Hope 4x03 Ship HappensTwo new episodes of Raising Hope air tonight at 9/8c on Fox.

If you spot baby Hope spontaneously aging backwards, it’s because one of the episodes is a holdover from last season.

Hope for Fans has a scan of a short interview with Garret from the Nov. 25 issue of TV Guide. The article is about the Christmas episode, 4×10 “The Chance Who Stole Christmas.” Hit the link to read it.

Garret Dillahunt - Hi DefFox has put out a few releases for the upcoming episodes, and it looks like Michelle Hurd is finally stopping by for a visit. She will make an appearance as Agent Thompson in one of the episodes that air on December 6.

And yeah, we’ll be getting at least the first eight episodes in pairs.

Here is what’s happening tonight:

4×03 Ship Happens

When Sabrina finds out that Jimmy never went on a real family vacation as a kid, she’s determined to take Hope (guest stars Baylie and Rylie Cregut) on a memorable trip and to prove to Burt and Virginia that family vacations don’t have to be stressful.

4×04 Hi-Def

Virginia is thrilled when the doctor prescribes new glasses, until her new crystal-clear vision allows her to see every tiny imperfection around the house. Meanwhile, Jimmy and Sabrina get competitive over how many followers each has on social media app “QuickVids,” so they record Maw Maw’s zaniness in an effort to gain more viewers.

Raising Hope returns tonight with season four premiere

Raising Hope season 4Raising Hope is finally back tonight at 9/8c on Fox with the first two episodes of season four, “Déjà Vu Man” and “Burt Bucks.”

Mike Mariano, the new showrunner, wrote a guest column for the Hollywood Reporter. Here is a quick message from him (more at the link):

If it takes a village to raise a child, I figure it takes 6 million to 8 million viewers to nurture a television show. So if you see Raising Hope wandering around like a lost teenager on a Friday night, be nice. Pitch in. Maybe even set your DVR to “season pass,” and be sure to press “play” within three to seven days. Preferably three.

Earlier this week, he gave a few details about the episode Garret will direct this season to Give Me My Remote:

“It is an episode where Martha [Plimpton]‘s character, Virginia, goes to dinner with her boss,” Mariano told me. “And where Jimmy…has an issue with Hope’s pet.”

It’ll still be a little bit before Dillahunt steps behind the camera — Mariano told me he was just about to get the first draft of the script — but it sounds like it could be a good one, yes?

TV Guide has a season four preview here.

TV Fanatic has posted a recent interview with Garret & Martha today:

And here is a short BTS clip from the season opener:

And a few more clips from Fox:

Raising Hope (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) – “Déjà Vu Man”

A mysterious Natesville resident (guest star Jeffrey Tambor) keeps popping up in the Chance’s lives. When Burt (Garret Dillahunt) and Virginia (Martha Plimpton) decide to investigate his identity, Maw Maw (Cloris Leachman) reveals a little-known secret about Virginia’s past.

Raising Hope (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) – “Burt Bucks”

Burt and Virginia introduce Natesville to a new bartering system called “Burt Bucks” that looks an awful lot like a pyramid scheme. But when the market gets flooded with their printed currency, they learn a thing or two about the economy. Meanwhile, Sabrina (Shannon Woodward) saves Jimmy’s (Lucas Neff) life making him question his masculinity.
