Fox has two comedies premiering Tuesday, "Raising Hope" and "Running Wilde. " Both have terrific casts — Martha Plimpton, Garret Dillahunt and Cloris Leachman in "Raising Hope," Keri Russell and Will Arnett in "Running Wilde" — and both examine class, though from different ends of the spectrum. There the similarity ceases (well, OK, both begin with the letter R, but presumably that was unintentional.) Because "Raising Hope" is funny, sweet, occasionally provocative, and occasionally over-the-top in a regrettable way — and "Running Wilde" is just regrettable.

Girls and gore are proving to be a winning strategy for Fox as the network announced on Monday it was renewing "The Following," "New Girl," "The Mindy Project" and "Raising Hope. " "The Following," which stars Kevin Bacon as a former FBI agent tasked with stopping a serial killer's cult, is coming back for a second 15-episode season. The series, created by Kevin Williamson and Maros Siega, is a ratings hit for the network, and has gotten an even bigger boost from DVR viewers, making it the No. 3 drama overall for the season.
