Enlisted

FOX's comedy Enlisted has gotten off to a rough start. Its premiere managed only a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating. In its second week, it fell to a 0.6. Arguably, it was not helped by its lead-in, Raising Hope, which managed only a tenth higher each week. This week, FOX swapped the two shows timeslots, giving Enlisted the theoretical benefit of a lead-in from Bones, which garnered a 1.5 adults 18-49 rating last week. Bones hasn't done much to help Raising Hope, but will it prove more compatible with Enlisted? Make your predictions for how tonight's episode will fare.

 
  • Christian

    A 0.8 at best.

  • Mathew k

    No it and raising hope will just switch ratings. I watch enlisted and raising hope but am disappointed in the switch as this will most likely mean raising hopes numbers will go lower

  • John A

    No its dead.

  • KC

    not more that a 1.0

  • Shepherd

    Absolutely no help whatsoever.

    0.5-0.6, I picked 0.6 since CBS’s H5O is a repeat.

  • mathew

    I miss the raising hope hour longs episodes (two per friday)

  • Ravenrei

    I’m not even sure this is happening. Every tv guide I can find for tonight says Bones > Enlisted > Raising Hope, but my local station just ran an ad during the noon news saying that Bones and The Following were playing back to back tonight. I suppose this could just be my local rebelling due to low ratings, but it looked like a network ad. If this is happening, that’ll make a decent impact on ratings since I’m in the Houston market.

  • HeadlessHorseman

    Whatever help a Bones lead in provides will be miniscule. It’ll get a .8 at best.

  • NOPE

    The name says it.

  • CBSviewer

    I think they should have done this from the start. Raising Hope hasn’t proved to ever be a good lead in, just that it has it’s own audience that likes their show. They knew it wouldn’t have that high of ratings, I think you always put the new show after the higher rated one if you can, here, that’s Bones and they didn’t take advantage of that from the start. I still watch Bones, I no longer watch Raising Hope. I’m someone who will turn the channel after Bones once I see Raising Hope starting. I’d have stayed for Enlisted to try it.

  • Shepherd

    Why are people predicting 0.8? Enlisted never has, nor will it ever get 0.8. Rising hope could barely pull 0.8s this season.

  • Poppy

    IDK if anything can help Enlisted, not that the Bones folks haven’t been banging on it all week, I tried it twice, that’s more than enough for me. Sorry Fox.

  • HV

    Bones 1.5
    Enlisted 0.6
    Raising Hope 0.5

  • Debsafan

    0.6 because It goes up against Grimm, I’m not giving up Grimm for anything. I’ll record it and watch it later.

  • Guardian Owl

    Nope, maybe if they had done it this way for the premiere of Enlisted, but now a viewer has already missed two episodes and they probably won’t want to start it now.

  • cimmer

    Unfortunately I don’t think so, especially with tonight’s ep of Grimm which I’m hoping will do very well. I am going to hope it at least goes up, a bit.

  • THE OLD MAN

    I went for broke w/ 0.9, thinking some of the H50 crowd may give it a try if they haven’t already.

  • Bruce Morgan

    BONES WON’T HELP THAT SHOW. IT IS BARELY MAKING IT ON ITS OWN. THEY LOST MOST OF THEIR AUDIENCE WHEN THEY MOVED TO FRIDAY NIGHTS. A REAL SHAME AS IT IS A GOOD SERIES. LAST WEEK SHOW WAS OUTSTANDING.
