Starpulse has a new interview with Garret. You can read the complete article at the link. Snippets:
“The next two [episodes] are really fun; it’s a two-parter. Maw Maw, under certain circumstances, has to leave the house, and we have to get her back. It was a lot of fun to shoot,” he told me, adding that when it comes to what’s ahead in season three, “I’m pretty happy with how things are working out. I like that Jimmy and Sabrina’s characters are already engaged. There’s a wedding to look forward to. That could be interesting.”
While Raising Hope has received critical support, including two Emmy nominations and a Critics’ Choice Award nom for Dillahunt this year, it hasn’t become a huge hit in the ratings – the conundrum of many a show over the history of television. As a TV veteran, he’s wise to the ratings issue. “I’m not sure how accurate they are anymore is the problem,” he said. “People watch the show through so many different means. Our premiere was the first show ever made available on Twitter. What does that do to the ratings? Do you add that in? How does that affect advertising?
“Most of the shows I’ve been on didn’t have huge audiences. They have loyal, really witty and smart audiences, but they’re not that huge,” he continued. “All I can do is try to make a good show. It’s a waste of energy to worry about what could make it more popular.”
There is another interview on Hulu (region-locked): The Morning After.
Here are the clips from tonight’s episode, “Throw Maw Maw from the House – Part One” (synopsis and pics at the link):
