Hope & Faith is an American sitcom that aired for three seasons on ABC from September 26, 2003 to May 2, 2006. For its first two seasons the show was part of a revived TGIF comedy block.
The show starred Faith Ford as Hope Shanowski and Kelly Ripa as Faith. Ford plays a homemaker with a husband (played by Ted McGinley) and three children. Ripa plays her sister, a soap opera star whose character is killed off, leading her to move in with her sister's family. The show is based in part on the life of its creator, Joanna Johnson, a former cast member of The Bold and the Beautiful. The show featured guest stars such as Tony Curtis, Dean Cain, Robert Wagner, Regis Philbin (Ripa's co-host on Live with Regis and Kelly), Kathie Lee Gifford, Jenny McCarthy and Mark Consuelos (Ripa's husband).
The show was primarily filmed at New York City's Silvercup East, a sister studio to Silvercup Studios, to accommodate Ripa's schedule with Live with Regis and Kelly.
In early November 2003 the show helped ABC tie for the lead in Friday night viewership, attracting an audience of around twelve million. By February 2004, ABC ordered four more episodes for the show's first season, for a total of 26 episodes; as of then, Hope & Faith was being watched by around nine million viewers each week. It continued at that level for March, though by mid-April, when the show was renewed for a second season, it was down to 6.8 million viewers and a 57th-place showing in the ratings. The show's Nielsen Ratings during the 2005-2006 season continued to weaken slightly. In its time slot Hope & Faith often placed third, behind Three Wishes and Threshold; when Threshold was swapped with Close to Home, the show continued to place third. The four episodes broadcast during November sweeps averaged 6.52 million viewers, with weekly rankings ranging from 63rd to 77th. Its rankings placed it at or near the bottom for all 2005 primetime shows airing on the Big Three broadcasting networks.
ABC announced on January 18, 2006 that it was benching Hope & Faith for the February sweeps to make room for an expanded edition of Dancing with the Stars. The show began to air its remaining episodes from March 21, 2006 on Tuesdays at 8:30 p.m. ET against American Idol.  In May 2006, ABC announced that that the show would be cancelled when it unveiled its Fall 2006 lineup.
All 73 episodes were picked up by the U.S. television network WE: Women's Entertainment, as the total number of produced episodes was short of what was required for American television syndication.
The show is currently airing in: Australia on Seven Network, Arena and FOX8, Poland on Fox Life, Latin America on Sony Entertainment Television, Canada on CMT, Bosnia and Herzegovina on OBN, Croatia on Nova TV, Denmark on TV 2, France on M6, Most of Asia on STAR World, Ireland on RTÉ One, Slovakia on Markiza, Israel on YesStar 3, Italy on Fox Life, the Netherlands on NET 5, New Zealand on TV2, Norway on TV 2 Zebra, Sweden on TV4 Komedi, Thailand on True Series, Turkey on ComedyMax and the Arab World on Dubai One and MBC4. The show also previously aired in the UK on ABC1 but the channel closed in September 2007, with no other channel having announced plans to air the show. Tiscali UK's channel C1 has the first two seasons on demand.
