     October 6, 2010

Despite the fact that Lone Star and My Generation have already been axed (and shows like Running Wilde and Outlaw are on the bubble), at least one series has already garnered enough to success to warrant a full season order. Today Fox announced (via press release) their order for 9 more episodes of Raising Hope for a full season order of 22 episodes altogether. The family comedy is the first new series to snag a full season order. Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly says, “With Raising Hope, Greg Garcia captures a smart take on the working-class family with a great mix of wild comedy and a big dose of heart. The show is running like a Swiss clock, and we’re very happy with how well audiences have responded so far – so we’re confident it will build an even bigger audience throughout the season.” Anyone out there completely stoked about this?
