Critics Consensus: Raising Hope nurses a winsome sweetness in an improved second season that shears off the comedic bits that didn't work while expounding upon the blue collar charm and gleaming heart that lured viewers in.

2011, FOX, 22 episodes

Critics Consensus: Thanks to a talented and well-matched cast, Raising Hope largely manages to balance crude, absurdist humor with moments of charm without languishing in one or exploiting the other.
