Updated with FOX's press release:




RAISING HOPE Moves to 9:30 PM


Beginning this Friday, Jan. 24, ENLISTED moves to its new time period (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT), following BONES (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. RAISING HOPE moves to 9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT.


A military-set family comedy, ENLISTED stars Geoff Stults (“The Finder”), Chris Lowell (“Veronica Mars”) and Parker Young (“Suburgatory”) as three brothers who, when the best of the best are sent overseas, stay behind to try to keep the post in order. The series also stars Emmy Award winner Keith David (“Cloud Atlas,” “The Cape”) and Angelique Cabral (“Friends with Benefits”).


In “Pete’s Airstream,” the all-new time period premiere episode of ENLISTED, airing Friday, Jan. 24 (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT), Pete tries to distance himself from his brothers and the platoon, which, of course, backfires.


In “Thrilla in Natesvilla,” the all-new time period premiere episode of RAISING HOPE (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT), Burt (Garret Dillahunt) and Virginia (Martha Plimpton) try to help Barney (Gregg Binkley) and Maxine’s (guest star Molly Shannon) budding relationship, and in the process, end up in a fight.

FOX's  freshman comedy Enlisted is moving from Friday at 9:30PM to Friday at 9PM. The critically acclaimed comedy has struggled in the ratings, with last week's episode falling to a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating from a 0.7 for its premiere. The  move will give the show a stronger lead-in, Bones. Its previous lead-in, Raising Hope,  will now move to 9:30.Executive producer  Mike Royce tweeted the news.

    So what happens to Raising Hope, if it’s not moving to 9:30? Summer burn-off?

  • nicola83

    Enlisted in already dead.

  • Scott Sandler

    “Presumably, its previous lead-in, Raising Hope, will not move to 9:30.”

    Not move or now move?

  • Tom Shaw

    Fox saw the Raising Hope numbers there in 2013.

    This move is two+ weeks too late.

    Typo alert: You have “will not”, implying RH is pulled or something, instead of “will now”.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Sara Bibel

    @Jeff I apologize for the typo. I meant t write that Raising Hope will now move to 9:30.

  • Greg

    Something they should have done before premiering the show, but now? Too little, too late.

    I hope the show gets to air all of the episodes, though. It’s not something I’ll miss when it gets cancelled, but it is quite nice.

  • Jeff (Canada)

    Ahhh OK, much better haha. You scared me there for a second!

  • madbengalsfan85

    Why Enlisted wasn’t in the 9PM slot to begin with is beyond me…the Bones lead-in was wasted on Raising Hope

  • Benjamin

    Anyone else expecting new episodes of Bones to start stretching past 9PM, moving commercials from Enlisted and Raising Hope into Bones’ hour?

  • HalCapone

    …brings to mind the expression: “arranging deck chairs on the Titanic”. The better move would have been to pair this with Brooklyn 99 on Tuesday and move Dads to the 9:30 Friday FOX death slot.

  • Sarah

    Good. :)

  • merrranga

    come on, guys. isn’t it obvious this show was tanked by the US gov’t as a way of mentally manipulating the american public??

    where my crazies at?

  • baja7475

    HalCapone, Why move Dads to Friday at 9:30 when the ratings are almost as Brooklyn 99. Especially when it’s way funnier. Just because the critics like b99 doesn’t mean it’s good. b99 is like a bad barney miller

    There seems to be a lack of confidence and a lot of second guessing at FOX with their scheduling this year (more so than usual).

    I realize their ratings are down, which amplifies things when they go wrong, but it’s like common sense scheduling has gone out the door.

  • Poppy

    I dont know if that will help, I like the relationship between the brothers ok, but the rest of the show is just silliness and feels frivolous considering what’s really going on out in the military and the dangers they face.

  • iSayso

    Is that “Taps” I hear playing?

    Anyone know where One is?

  • Andrew21

    They REALLY couln’t have done this right from the start.. SOOO DUMBBB

  • Jeff (Canada)


    Great, thanks. Now I miss Better Off Ted even more!
