LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Fox TV says it's delaying the premiere of freshman sitcom "Enlisted" until January.
The network said Thursday the move reflects confidence in the series and a desire to take advantage of promotional opportunities during the network's winter sports telecasts. Wooing male viewers appears to be the network's motivation for the switch.
"Enlisted," about three brothers stationed at a Florida military base, will debut Jan. 10 instead of in November, Fox said. It stars Geoff Stults, Chris Lowell and Parker Young as the siblings and Keith David as their commanding sergeant.
The sitcom will be paired in January with Fox's returning "Raising Hope." Before then, the network will run two back-to-back episodes of "Raising Hope" in the 9-10 p.m. Eastern slot on Fridays starting Nov. 8.
