TV Series
    (September 21, 2010-April 4, 2014)
    Comedy series
    Originally aired on FOX
    Principal cast:
    Lucas Neff as James 'Jimmy' Chance
    Martha Pimpton as Virginia Chance
    Garrett Dillahunt as Burt Chance
    Shannon Woodward as Sabrina Collins
    Gregg Brinkley as Barney Hughes

    Premise: A 23-year-old and his family raise his infant son who was conceived after a one night stand
    The show was initially going to be titled 'Keep Hope Alive.'
    The family is extremely dysfunctional.
    Jimmy comes off as naive and mischievous.
    The mother of Jimmy's daughter Hope was executed because she killed multiple boyfriends.
    We have to constantly hear Jimmy's impersonation of Gollum from 'Lord of the Rings.'
    Virginia and Burt also gave birth to Jimmy in their teens.
    Virginia grew up believing a story about her mother being killed by a duck, while she was being raised by her grandmother, Maw Maw.
    It is essentially 'Malcolm in the Middle' meets 'Juno.'
    In its first season, the series was dependent on Glee's lead-in audience.
    It was created by My Name is Earl's Greg Garcia.
    It gave acting jobs to Plimpton and Dillahunt.
    It also revived Cloris Leachman's career.
    Despite showing signs of Alzheimer's disease, Maw Maw has short-lived moments of lucidity in which she can be very helpful.
    Tom Gilatto of 'People Weekly' called the show the best new sitcom of the season.
    Matt Roush of TV Guide praised the series as 'a treat for anyone who loves a good call-back to classic sitcoms.'
    Plimpton and Leachman were nominated for Emmys in the show's freshman season.
