/// Fox Cancels Raising Hope
Fox on Monday said “nope” to a fifth season of Raising Hope . The network will air a two-part series finale on Friday, April 4, thereby bringing an end to the peripatetic Greg Garcia comedy. Since debuting in September 2010, Raising Hope has occupied no fewer than six different time slots. In its first three seasons, Hope ping-ponged across Fox’s Tuesday night schedule before being shifted to Thursday for its Season 3 finale … which aired a full month after its most recent original broadcast date. When Fox in advance of this season moved Hope to Fridays, the writing was on the wall for the daffy family comedy. Fox stacked back-to-back episodes of Hope for five weeks, whereupon it was paired with the freshman sitcom Enlisted . Season-to-date, Hope is averaging 2.16 million live-plus-same-day viewers and an anemic 0.7 in the adults 18-49 demo.
