While Fox’s ‘Raising Hope’ Becomes First New TV Show to Get a Full-Season Pickup, NBC’s Stopping Production on ‘Outlaw’

The new television season continues to separate the winners from the stragglers, with Fox giving its freshman comedy "Raising Hope" the season’s first full-season pickup, according to EW.com’s The Ausiello Files.

Meanwhile, NBC’s "Outlaw" has stopped production, although the network is keeping the show on the air, reports Nellie Andreeva at Deadline.com.  Beginning on Thursday, the new series will begin production hiatus while NBC closely watches the show’s performance, the story says.

The program, which stars Jimmy Smits as a Supreme Court justice, has produced eight episodes, with three of them already aired. If the series demonstrates an improvement during the next two weeks, NBC will restart production, the story says.

"Raising Hope," on the other hand, has been given a back-nine order, bringing the number of its episodes to 22. Fox says the show is the No. 1 new comedy with teens and young women, EW.com notes.


  1. welll then Jimmy is going to have to get out there and promote his show like a circus carny and not pull thosw diva numbers like he did on NYPD BLUE and LA LAW

  2. Maybe if Jimmy’s character got saddled w/raising a baby, it might make the show more interesting. Actually, Outlaw isn’t terrible, it’s just a tad preachy. Meanwhile, Raising Hope is delightfully irreverant.
