The network said the move was made to give the male-skewing series more of a promotional push during sports-heavy November and December.

Beginning Nov. 8, back-to-back original episodes of Raising Hope will air Fridays at 9 and 9:30 pm.

Enlisted stars Geoff Stults (The Finder), Chris Lowell (Veronica Mars), Angelique Cabral (Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23), Keith David (Platoon) and Parker Young (Suburgatory) and follows three very different brothers working together on a small military base in Florida.

    This is just Fox treating Raising Hope like dog crap. Burn off all its episodes on Fridays. Disgusting.

    • Brendan says:

      I agree. Raising Hope is a great show, why are they burning it off on Friday? :( To make room for “Dads”…. really?! Once that show gets cancelled, I hope Raising Hope moves back to Tuesdays when it belongs.

    I won’t watch it. It stars PIZ, for God’s sake!!!

    • iMember says:

      Piz was great, thanks! Even if LoVe is meant to be.

      • alistaircrane says:

        No. No he wasn’t. He didn’t respect Veronica and Logan as a couple and couldn’t wait for them to break up so he could make his move. I hate him and I hate that VerPiz will be a couple in the movie.

        • ZmaX says:

          Can you blame him? Who wouldn’t want to date Veronica?
          But judging an actor for the actions of a character he played (a storyline he didn’t control) is ridiculous. He’s a good enough actor and seems like a really nice person. I’ll check out the show and see if I like it or not, but regardless, I wish him the best of luck in his career.

    • Lauren says:

      Um, no it doesn’t. Piz was a fictional character. Does this mean you aren’t going to watch the movie? Because Piz is actually in that one.

      • alistaircrane says:

        I didn’t stop watching Veronica Mars because Piz was in it, duuuh. I just will not follow the Piz actor to other projects.

        • Ashley says:

          Do you also realise that Piz wasn’t Chris Lowell’s creation, he did not do the writing for the character and he was merely doing a job?

          You know who did write Piz and his relationship with Veronica? The same guy that created the show and the Logan pairing. Because, you know, it’s a work of fiction….

    • Drew says:

      Piz rocks!

    • Sara says:

      Are you the reason Dell died on Private Practice? Are you trying to get Chris Lowell kicked off of tv shows?

    • Alan says:

      oh god you are being serious arent you?

  3. Raising Hope is one sitcom people should NOT be watching. It may end after four seasons. :-(

  4. cravingalife says:

    Back-to-back NEW Raising Hope episodes or a new episode and an old one? If it’s the former, such a shame. They are treating this awesome series like crap!

  5. Dizzle says:

    I get that it’s not the best fit for Raising Hope, but why not bump up the Chris Meloni sitcom Surviving Jack? This just feels like a quick way for Fox to burn through enough Hope episodes to reach syndication, and that show deserves better.

  6. Vlada says:

    Oh, FOX, when will you learn not to make such a stupid mistakes and such a stupid schedule?

  7. LMAO they’re putting it on Fridays to “give it a chance”?

  8. Mel says:

    Fox is so stupid. This show actually seems funny and would be a great companion to Brooklyn Nine-Nine, instead of Dads, which will be DOA as it looks freaking AWFUL.

  9. Steven says:

    Can’t believe they’re burning off Raising Hope. I hope Dads bombs so they can move the show back to Tuesdays at 8pm.

  10. David4 says:

    Just cancel The X Factor or shove that to Fridays and get rid of the result show. Move Bones to Wednesdays and Raising Hope and whatever to Thursdays before Glee.

    Stupid Fox.

  11. Drew says:

    Raising Hope should be back on Tuesdays. I expect Dads to be canceled about five minutes into its premiere.

  12. Important feedback. says:

    This show looks awful. I wonder if it will ever actually air of if it will get Goodwin Games-ed.

    • Zach says:

      I think it will air. They never set an airdate for TGG until the last minute. The sad thing is, The Goodwin Games could have been Good and a win if they didn’t do all of the executive meddling (forcing them to cast Becki Newton, forcing them to make it a female centered comedy, forcing them to cast TJ Miller). They did all that forcing, but the best part was still Scott Foley.

  13. M says:

    Damn. I actually was looking forward to this one.

  14. Alan says:

    well the show must be terrible then, cause thats the only reason something gets pushed to mid season no matter what the pr department says.

  15. Shaun Ed says:

    Sounds like this show is going to be like The Goodwin Games. Fox should stop ordering too many shows considering they only have 2 hours of prime time every weekday night. I kinda feel bad for the actos if their show fails. At least Parker Young can go back to Surburgatory.

  16. Sokratis says:

    This is just another example of having no faith in a program. Pushing it back signals they are expecting it to fail. If they didn’t set a premiere date, I would have been happier, as Dads is certain to be canceled by week 3, and it could have replaced it

  17. Brett says:

    Pushing it out of November doesnt tell me they think it will fail, tells me they want to use football to promote it. Nov is a terrible month to premiere a show on a Friday night! Having seen the pilot, it sounds like a great move to me, and hopefully it gets a Tuesday slot!

  18. madbengalsfan85 says:

    This is good for Enlisted (good time to promote male-skewing show is football season). This is bad for Raising Hope (episode burn-off is never good). And if the goal is to sacrifice RH to the TV gods rather than save the night, why even move Bones to Fridays. Sigh

  19. Jared says:

    …or Raising Hope could do well enough on Fridays to warrant another couple seasons. Its not like it has huge ratings or anything to warrant some plumb timeslot on FOX.
