Fox’s ‘Enlisted’ Hopes to Sign Up New Viewers With Timeslot Switch

It moves up 30 minutes, will follow 'Bones'

Fox is hoping to recruit new viewers for its new military-set family comedy “Enlisted” by flipping its Friday timeslot with “Raising Hope.”

Starting this week, “Enlisted will air at 9 p.m., where it will follow drama “Bones.” While the two aren’t all that compatible, the larger audience for the veteran crime series should be able to get more people to sample the newcomer, which is off to a soft ratings start.

Raising Hope,” which moved to Friday at 9 last fall, will shift to 9:30.

Last week, “Bones” averaged a 1.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 6.8 million viewers overall in the 8 o’clock hour, but the net then fell sharply from there with “Raising Hope” (0.7 demo rating, 2.5 million viewers) and “Enlisted” (0.6, 2.0 million). So while the newbie has retained most of its lead-in in its first two weeks on the air, its numbers are pretty small — even for Friday.

“Enlisted” is produced by 20th Century Fox Television and stars Geoff Stults, Chris Lowell and Parker Young. Kevin Biegel is creator and executive producer, and Mike Royce serves as an executive producer.
