Molly Shannon returns to 'Raising Hope': First look

raising-hope-molly-shannon-fox.jpg Molly Shannon returns to FOX's "Raising Hope" on Friday (Jan. 24) with an unusual proposition for Burt ( Garret Dillahunt) and Virginia ( Martha Plimpton). Zap2it has an exclusive clip from the "Saturday Night Live" alum's appearance as Maxine, the owner of Howdy's supermarket and Jimmy and Sabrina's new boss.

When Maxine asks Burt and Virginia if she can observe them to learn the secrets of their successful marriage, the married couple doesn't necessarily see eye to eye. Asks Burt, "You think we're so desperate for money that we'll be used as guinea pigs in your bizarre relationship experiment?"

Quips Virginia, "Because it that's what you think we are, the answer is yes!"

Check out the clip below. There's also a really good comic strip Cathy zinger that will make you giggle.

"Raising Hope" airs Friday nights at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT after all-new episodes of "Bones" and "Enlisted."
