Ratings: Shark Tank, Five-0 and Blue Bloods Hit Highs, Enlisted Opens Low, Grimm Dips

Ratings Hawaii Five-0A disappointing few saluted Enlisted on Friday night.

The freshman Fox comedy — which TVLine readers gave an average grade of “B+” — premiered to just 2.4 million total viewers and a 0.7 rating, on par with what Raising Hope episodes were doing in the time slot thus far this season.

    it’s too bad that Dracula’s numbers are so pathetic when the story is finally getting good.

  2. Amanda says:

    Fox needs to move Enlisted. it does not belong on Friday night!!!

  3. Susan says:

    We actually set aside the time to watch Enlisted and thoroughly enjoyed it! The network gave it a terrible time slot :( We don’t usually watch network tv on Fri. nights, but will be sure to catch Enlisted, from now on. It has an excellent cast~

  4. Wolfie says:

    Given that critical reception has been really good, FOX would do well to move Enlisted to a slot where it actually stands a chance of doing as well as it deserves.

      this show sucked. it was beyond ridiculous. comedy doesn’t have to be trite and idiotic. the war games thing? been done in stripes, private benjamin, dirty dozen, all to better effect than this crap.

  5. Anon says:

    1.5 for Bones pretty great, steady after it’s winter hiatus and blink and you miss them promos: they were M.I.A….Bones 1.5 rating on par with Blue Bloods and H50….Bones fan 1.5 is excellent for a Friday. You are never going to get Mon 2’s demo on a Friday. Ever. Deal with it, okay? :)

  6. Why does FOX bother putting anything on Fridays? They seem content to put Kitchen Nightmares and other BS there before. The shows there now could do so much better on another night. And they constantly showed American Idol promos last night and told me, “American Idol is brought to you by Coca Cola!” I don’t give a crap who sponsors Idol when it’s not even on, I want to know who sponsors Raising Hope and Enlisted.

    What about ratings for Helix?

  8. Fernando says:

    Enlisted belongs with B99 and dads belongs on Friday.

  9. Alienate says:

    Enlisted will never get high ratings. People are tired of WAR. Oh, let’s make WAR “funny”.
    B.S. The days of Hogan’s Heroes type humor are done. R.I.P.

    • And to that, I say watch the show. They’re still going to throw awards and crowds at depressing movies like The Hurt Locker, but a comedy that takes place stateside that has genuine heart is something that most people could easily embrace if they gave it a chance.

      • justsaying says:

        i tried watching this. and i’d rather go watch a hogan’s heroes rerun. at least that would have the excuse of being actually dated. this just felt like it belonged in another decade. maybe if i were 12 and had never seen any other war comedy. but my humor is more sophisticated than this nowadays. and i say that as someone who’s looking forward to dumb and dumber2. yes, that’s how idiotic i thought this pilot was.

        • MC says:

          Exactly. I don’t think this is my cup of tea. It’s aimed at teenagers. I loved “Stripes” back in the day, but I do think it’s very difficult to write and produce a truly funny comedy (on tv or in the movies) these days.

        • How “sophisticated” could it be if you can’t even appreciate the most critically-acclaimed new comedy? Also, still not about war.

    • Chuck Finley says:

      You obviously have no idea what the premise of the show is then. It’s pretty much Major Payne, the tv series.

    • You obviously didn’t watch the show. It’s not about war.

  10. Eric says:

    Fox, please move Enlisted. It is a great show that deserves a fighting chance.

  11. wrstlgirl says:

    I wanted to watch Enlisted but there’s just to much other stuff on we couldn’t fit it in.

  12. Enlisted definitely deserves to be moved to Fox’s Tuesday night lineup with New Girl, move The Mindy Project to Friday where it could probably do fairly good numbers for a Friday slot.

  13. lindasays says:

    My family just watched Enlisted. We loved it!! Not much comedy, fit for TV, will hold my 18 and 14 year olds attention. Let alone make them lol. We are lifers for Enlisted!! Move it to Tuesday with B99 asap!!

  14. James says:

    Oh God, Carrie. I was happy you were getting “higher” ratings every week and now this…

  15. DavidSask says:

    Enlisted is not a concept that works for comedy half hour!

  16. Ann says:

    FOX is gonna kill Enlisted with that terrible timeslot. It should be on Tuesdays with the rest of their comedy block. Cancel Dads. If Enlisted gets prematurely cancelled, that would be two good shows with potential that FOX wasted. Goodwin Games being the other. These two shows would have thrived on another network.

    Grimm was excellent this week.

  18. shar says:

    Hawaii 5-0 and Blue Bloods get better each week. Glad Kono is back.
