New Girl came back right at last season's finale numbers, and it did so with a much worse lead-in than Glee was last year. So that's roughly what I'm expecting from Raising Hope. While Hope's finale last year had a New Girl lead-in, the show was pretty resilient in its turn at 8:00 last season. It posted three straight 2.1's after New Girl and then had a 2.1 in its 8/7c debut. Even in what has been a pretty brutal opening week of the season, most of the 8:00 shows have at least been able to premiere somewhat better than last year's post-DST numbers, and Hope was a mid-to-upper 1's show at 8:00 after DST.
