Fox has announced that its delaying the debut of the military comedy Enlisted. It was set to air on Friday nights following Raising Hope starting in November, but will now wait until January to debut. Fox says it will be replaced by a second episode of Raising Hope, though I have a feeling that might not happen if the ratings for Dads are half as bad as the reviews.
