And Greg Garcia has sent out another press release:
Hello Critical Pals,
Here we are closing in on the end of the first season of RAISING HOPE. Other than the fact I don’t think nearly enough people are watching, it’s been a great season.
Let me tell you something about the finale airing Tuesday, May 17 (9:01-9:31 PM ET/PT) on FOX: It’s the best half-hour of comedy that will be on network television this year. I’m not lying. Watch it yourself. It’s an amazing episode. Trust me; I’ve done a few crappy episodes of TV over the last 15 years that I didn’t want people watching, but this particular episode is really good.
We’ve been done shooting for a while now, and between you and me, not shooting a TV show is boring. I’ve been trying to fill my time in creative ways. I went to the Grand Canyon, played a game of golf, and even spent three hours at Charlie Sheen’s house. I’m not kidding. I don’t know if you know this or not, but he’s quite an interesting fella. I thought I might be able to get some buzz for RAISING HOPE if I met with him. I was hoping we would end up getting arrested in Vegas together or – at the very least – he would stab me. But as it turns out, we just sat in his theater and talked for a few hours. I’d tell you more about it, but to be honest, he scares the shit out of me.
I’m also Tweeting. Not long ago, I would have punched myself in the face for saying that, but I’m actually enjoying it. If you want to, you can tell people to follow me at @whoisgreggarcia. And here’s the fun part, I’m giving stuff away through Twitter. I’m giving away money, TV show stuff and random stuff I find in my house. I gave $100 to a guy in New Jersey for being the first person to call a pay phone at a gas station where I was stopped. Currently, I’m having a contest where I’m giving $500 for the funniest picture I get. My wife thinks I’ve lost my mind.
Okay, well, that’s pretty much what’s going on with me. Thanks for all your support throughout the season. I really hope you enjoy the finale.
