"Raising Hope," FOX
Nomination Status: Perhaps The Cloris Leachman Effect takes over?
In Its Favor: There are few new-series candidates for a nomination slot and although "Mike & Molly" was more popular, "Raising Hope" was probably more respected/admired? Greg Garcia had some Emmy success with the early seasons of "My Name Is Earl," so perhaps his particular sensibility will register again.
Working Against It: "Raising Hope" is stuck in an unfortunate netherspace. It's not as popular as the popular kids and it's not as hip as the hip kids, but it might be more popular than some of the hip kids and it might be hipper than some of the more popular kids. And Emmy nomination is unlikely.
