* GoodParents: Despite all the heckling Virginia and Burt do to Jimmy, they genuinely love him and a few times even they are surprised that they raised a decent son. [[spoiler: They also do everything they can to make sure Jimmy's wedding day goes perfectly. Which also means incapacitating a still-alive Lucy.]]
** Jimmy and Sabrina are slowly becoming this for Hope.

* ArtisticLicenseLaw: Since it's generally recognized that an adult prison is HarmfulToMinors, Lucy wouldn't have been able to keep the baby with her in prison in RealLife. Instead, "Princess Beyonce" would have been given to Lucy's parents, or to her biological father, within a couple of days of birth, while Lucy returned to prison. (And if for some reason that wasn't possible, placed into foster care.)

* {{Bowdlerise}}: What Jimmy and Sabrina do to [[AxCrazy Lucy's]] videos for Hope.
** A rare case of [[{{Bowdlerise}} bowdlerising]] being a JustifiedTrope, as the original videos are [[HarmfulToMinors harmful to EVERYONE]].
** [[GirlOnGirlIsHot Though Burt seemed to enjoy the dancing one.]]

* MythologyGag: After the news report about Lucy being a boyfriend-killer, the news anchor begins to do a lighter side story about [[MyNameIsEarl "a small-time crook with a long list of wrongs he was making amends for]] has finally finished, and [[LeftHanging you'll never guess how it ended!"]]

** In the season finale, in a flashback, Jim watches one of Ernie Belcher's fetish videos (the one where Joy repeatedly kicks a guy in the groin) from the two-parter "Inside Probe" of ''MyNameIsEarl''.
** One of the movie posters in "It's A Hopeful Life" is ''MyNameIsEarl, TheMovie''
** The penultimate episode of season 2 features the return of "Inside Probe" from ''MyNameIsEarl'', but paradoxically, one of the commercial breaks has an advertisement for the ''MyNameIsEarl'' TV show.

* ReunionShow: Somewhere between this and a FullyAbsorbedFinale with a healthy dose of {{Expy}} involved. The episode "Making the Band" had every main actor from ''MyNameIsEarl'', most of whom had minor roles in other episodes on ''Raising Hope'' already. It was a constant stream of familiar {{Catch Phrase}}s and references to the show, adjusted to fit their new characters (Creator/JasonLee's character Smokey made a list of everyone he hurt and is trying to make up for it, Ethan Suplee's character Andrew calls Smokey "Brother" in the slang term, etc). When Smokey first shows up the Earl theme song blares almost as a ThemeMusicPowerUp.

* SharedUniverse: Zig-zagged. We have seen a few characters from ''MyNameIsEarl'' (most prominently one appearance from Patty the daytime hooker) and there are frequent references to other characters and Camden, but there are a few moments that say [[RecursiveCanon the TV show My Name Is Earl]] exists in this world as well. The humor and characters are similar in tone (although this show is slightly more sedated), but it also doesn't help that many of the same actors have [[YouLookFamiliar notable parts in this show]], including a pseudo ReunionShow featuring those characters taking on similar roles to ''Earl''.

* SpiritualSuccessor: If the constant references to ''MyNameIsEarl'' [[ProductionPosse and reappearing cast members]] didn't explain it, the show has a very similar "white trash trying to do the best they can" tone to it.
