Fox cancels Raising Hope

After four seasons, the comedy series Raising Hope is coming to an end.  “On behalf of myself, Greg Garcia and Raising Hope’s amazing cast and crew, I would like to thank our audience for tuning in and supporting us over the last four seasons,” EP/showrunner Mike Mariano said in a statement. “We planned our season four finale with this possibility in mind, and hope our loyal fans enjoy the way we’ve chosen to say goodbye to the Chances and to Natesville. Thanks again, and we’ll see you in syndication.”

Tom & Jerry, Bugs Bunny get revival

The Cartoon Network have unveiled an ambitious new programming slate that includes, among others, the revival of classic cartoon characters Tom & Jerry and Bugs Bunny. The network said “The Tom & Jerry Show” will preserve the look and sensibility of the veteran characters, but will place “a brightly colored, high-definition lens on the madcap slapstick and never-ending battle that has made Tom and Jerry two of the most beloved characters of all time.” Show will debut Wednesday, April 9, at 5:30 p.m. “Wabbit – A Looney Tunes Production,” will place Bugs Bunny in comedic shorts that show the mischievous rodent squaring of against characters like Yosemite Sam and Wile. E. Coyote, along with new foes.  There will also be a revamp of the animated cast of Scooby Doo.
