The Question, Friday 1/10/14: Could Enlisted Possibly Sign Up for a Worse Timeslot?


From a timeslot standpoint, Fox's military comedy Enlisted has it about as bad as anything in recent memory. Not only is it on low-viewed Friday, but all three broadcast competitors are fairly respectable (Hawaii Five-0, Grimm and Shark Tank). And it has a lead-in in Raising Hope (0.8 in each episode after original Bones) that's likely even worse than 7:30 local programming would be. The reviews are actually pretty good, but it's hard not to call this a burn-off situation; it seems like they'd at least give it the direct post-Bones slot if they had even a smidgen of hope for it. Just stopping Raising Hope's bleed at 9:30 would feel like a "win" here, but it seems more likely to behave like a typical 9:30 Hope on series premiere night... and maybe even worse going forward?

Over/Under: 0.65.

Optimistically over!

I can't bear the idea of going under a 0.65 line on a non-CW network, so I'll just say over and hope for near-complete retention.

Spot said...

It's gonna be a mess, but it won't be that bad until at least week two. Over.

After last night, I'm guessing Bones and RH will be like 12/6, 1.7/.8. Can Enlisted keep 88% of RH's audience? I hope so, it looks good. Over.

Spot said...

Hmmm. I flipped a coin, OVER.

Spot said...

Over (and why the hell they didn't give this show the Bones lead-in? It makes no sense.)

Spot said...

Feel like going against the grain on this one. Under.

Spot said...

Under at .5 for no apparent reason.

Spot said...

Another good question if I can get one right at all ahah. I say over just because it is too depressing to go under a 0.65 on a non CW line.

Spot said...

Over.
Just a guess. I mean, anything between 0.4 and 0.9 wouldn't surprise me, because here we have really unique situation. Though, CWish 0.3 would surprise me, while 1.0+ would even more so.

Over. I liked the look of its trailer and thought it looked promising when the networks were announcing new shows for Fall 2013. Its a shame it has recieved such a bad timeslot but maybe seeing the episodes they produced will give some reasons why.

Under 0.65, but slightly. My prediction is a 0.63

Spot said...

Drunken optimism says over!

Spot said...

Over at a .7

Spot said...

Over. I hope it can get at least a 0.8 for it to have a chance

The Assets proved how low a January burnoff can go, and that led out of a 1.2. Under.
