Fox has high hopes for “Raising Hope.” The network has renewed the family comedy for a second season, Fox’s President of Entertainment Kevin Reilly confirmed Tuesday at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena.

“Raising Hope has emerged as a comedic standout: wickedly smart, hilarious and full of heart,” said Reilly. “[Executive producer and creator] Greg Garcia and his great cast have established an appointment show on Tuesday nights this season, and we’re confident it’s just the beginning of great things to come.”

“I’m happy that the show is getting another year,” said Garcia. “But the fact that I’ve been trying to think of a funny quote for the last two hours and this is the best I could come up with makes me a little nervous about Season Two.”

Considering the early demises of “Lone Star” and “Running Wilde,” “Hope” was Fox’s biggest success story of the new season, rising to become the No. 1 new network comedy for viewers under 35.

New episodes of “Raising Hope” return Tuesday, Feb. 8 at 9/8c.
