RAISING HOPE "Burt’s Parents" Season 2 Episode 7 – After a couple great episodes the last few weeks, Raising Hope returned with "Burt’s Parents". We’ve had a lot of great guest stars on this show in the past, and Burt’s titular parents were played by the great pair of Lee Majors and Shirley Jones.

When Burt accidentally invites his parents to his house for Thanksgiving, Virginia decides that they need to pretend to be a rich family and celebrate the holiday in a fancier house.

Also on board was Sabrina, who agreed to be Jimmy’s fake wife. These scenes were pretty great, including a couple great scenes.
