Fox Moves Enlisted Launch to January; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of September 16, 2013)

Enlisted

In order to take advantage of our winter sports promotional platform, new comedy Enlisted, starring Geoff Stults (The Finder, October Road), Chris Lowell (Private Practice, Veronica Mars) and Parker Young (Suburgatory), will premiere on Friday, Jan. 10 at 9:30 PM ET/PT, following all-new episodes of Bones at 8:00 PM ET/PT and Raising Hope at 9:00 PM ET/PT on Fox. As previously announced, Bones will make its time period premiere when the drama series moves from Mondays at 8:00 PM ET/PT to Fridays at 8:00 PM ET/PT on Nov. 8. This fall, all-new episodes of Bones on Fridays will be followed by one hour of all-new, back-to-back installments of Raising Hope at 9:00 PM and 9:30 PM ET/PT, which makes its Season Four premiere on Nov. 8.

Enlisted is a new military-set family comedy that centers on three brothers who, when the best of the best are sent overseas, stay behind to try to keep the post in order. Staff Sergeant Pete Hill (Stults) was on a path for a huge military career until one mistake overseas got him booted stateside to Fort McGee, the post in Florida where his two younger brothers are stationed. Now, as their platoon sergeant, Pete must serve both as big brother and military boss. Corporal Derrick Hill (Lowell) is the middle brother - smart and sarcastic, he likes to stir up trouble and doesn't really care about being a soldier. Private Randy Hill (Young), on the other hand, loves it. Between clean-up duty at a parade, human-grease-bowling and assorted soldierly pranks, they will inadvertently discover the key to strengthening their long-lost childhood bonds.


It's Friday, so it is time for "Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows" for the coming week. This is where we list what sitcom stars are appearing on talk shows for the coming week, the stars are both current and past sitcom stars, so this is for all sitcom fans of all eras!
