You know "Raising Hope" star Martha Plimpton from films like "The Goonies," "Mosquito Coast" and "Running on Empty," recent TV work like her turns on "The Good Wife" and "How To Make It In America" or, if you happen to be New York based, from a string of Tony nominated work in plays and musicals.
Chances are that you know Plimpton's "Raising Hope" co-star Lucas Neff from... FOX's "Raising Hope."
But varying levels of experience are part of the charm of "Raising Hope," which features a cast ranging from Oscar winner Cloris Leachman to a handful of babies.
And so far the returns have been pretty good for "Raising Hope," which focuses on a blue collar family attempting to raise a baby none of them are prepared for, as the comedy premiered last week to nearly 7.5 million viewers and a solid 3.1 rating among adults 18-49.
Before checking out Tuesday's (Sept. 28) second episode, check out what Plimpton and Neff told me about their show, the babies and the eccentric Leachman.
