Enlisted It has not been a great season for FOX's comedies, with its entire Tuesday night comedy block, including former powerhouse New Girl, struggling. Tonight, military comedy Enlisted premieres in what seems like  burn-off timeslot at 9:30PM following the low-rated Raising Hope whose most recent 9PM episode garnered a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating. However, the show has gotten some good reviews. Its army base setting could appeal to the millions of Americans with a connection to the military. Maybe it will surprise everyone and blossom into a hit. What do you think? Make your prediction!

    Hoping for a 1.1. Looks funny.

  • Joe

    I guess a 0.7? No one is going to find it in this terrible timeslot. Which is sad, because it’s a really funny show.

  • PurpleDrazi

    I have no desire to see this show and I don’t think many other people do either. Plus (it pains me to say this) Raising Hope will be a lousy lead-in.

  • John A

    0.5. Cant see it doing any better. FOX should air it at 9pm to try and use the Bones lead in.

  • eelna

    1.7 Bones
    0.9 Raising Hope
    0.8 Enlisted

    1.4 Grimm
    0.9 Dracula

    1.3 Last Man Standing
    1.0 The Neighbors

    1.2 Hawaii Five-0
    1.2 Blue Bloods

    0.3/0.4 for The Carrie Diaries
    Hope for a 0.4. It could easily pull better numbers, if the CW would show better promos. The promos for TCD and Hart of Dixie are stupid and boring. Arg!

    Hoping good but raising hope isnt doing good so 0.7 is my guess. I will watch this and raising hope tho

  • Blake

    I will watch it on Hulu Plus. Looks good to me

  • Spencer

    Why would FOX do this? Is there something going on with the production or something that they know it will be cancelled so they are just shipping it off to fridays? Why not move DADS to fridays to at least give Enlisted a chance.

  • HalCapone

    Might be too soon to be making a military sitcom as American psyche heals from the highly unpopular wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. FOX obviously has very low regard for this show judging by its premier slot

  • TV Viewer

    I think it will bomb badly and quickly similar to We are Men (CBS).
    Misfits in the Army in 2014. The lack of funny scenes in the previews leads me to believe it will be one of the worst network shows in the 2013 – 2014 season.
    This show probably would not work in peace time. With wars in Asia and the Middle East going on, it looks really out of place. Most of the people on this program look as though they would be killed in minutes if they were sent to a real war zone. The series set location is stateside, but, they are still in the Army and could be sent to a battlefield if the situation required it, and many of them don’t look like they could pass basic trainning.
    I really doubt if it is going to get many viewers on a Friday night and going up against Shark Tank, Hawaii Five-O, and/or Grimm.

    I am hoping for a 1.2 but I think it will be lucky to get a 0.7 due to it behind RH. In any event it will probably have better ratings than the Assets.

  • ludotv

    The more I think about it, the more it feels like Enlisted it set to fail in this timeslot with a lousy lead in and generally must mis-scheduled after Bones & Raising Hope… surely Enlisted would have been better with Brooklyn 9-9? I can’t see it doing more than 0.8 and it will probably dive fast as people are not going to stop watching Grimm/Hawaii (or from later on Supernatural) half way through an episode to watch Enlisted… Kinda sad as Stults seems like a nice guy

  • NBC Fan

    Raising Hope-0.9

  • charlie

    if the CW would show better promos. The promos for TCD and Hart of Dixie are stupid and boring. Arg!

    Nah,that’s because both of those shows are stupid in general!

  • charlie

    Oh & boring

    Enlisted will bomb not sure why they don’t just put it in dads slot and move dads to Friday

  • Jagger Dagger

    After watching the promos, it looks like a really dumbed down and terrible “Stripes” rip-off.

    Excuse the pun, but this show is going to TANK.
    (at least I didn’t say “bomb”).

  • RJC

    Fox should have swapped Raising Hope’s and Enlisted’s time slots and given Enlisted the Bones lead-in. RH is dead anyway, might as well give the new show even a slim chance to succeed by allowing it a bigger lead-in.

  • Networkman

    I can’t believe FOX is actually going forward with premiering this show after Raising Hope. If anything, The Mindy Project should be put on Friday. And why not try this comedy behind Family Guy. American Dad! will not be coming back to FOX next season so why isn’t it on Friday until the move?

    I guess the network wants Enlisted to fail.


    I’m think 0.7 at best & hope RH & Enlisted all the best.
