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.

    My guess si that Bones will get a 1.4-1.5 and Enlisetd if its lucky will get a 0.8 but Raising Hope will still drop. Whatever the 9:00 hour gets, the 9:30 half hour usually always drops. That was the case for almost every Raising Hope that aired back to back this season.

    The show is dead. Lead ins arent worth anything anyway. One need only look at last night with rake. If lead ins were so important you would think rake would have gotten more than 6 million and a 1.7. Fox advertised the crape out if that show. Even without a new h50 to compete my guess is that enlisted still doesn’t go up.

    Too little, too late by Fox… They clearly buried this show premiering it mid-season in this dead Friday slot after a struggling comedy. Sure it may go up to 0.8, 0.9 just by some of the Bones viewers sticking around since Stults had been in Bones once upon a time when Bones was the launchpad to the ill fated The Finder. But it won’t make a difference, why would Fox renew a freshman comedy that won’t reach 1.0? If there had been any true hope for Enlisted, it should have premiered on Tuesday moving either Dads or Mindy to Friday since one of those two if not both is dead
