Fox has shaken up its schedule, moving its freshman drama “Rake” to Friday nights at 8 p.m. starting March 14, while shifting the Thursday night results shows of “American Idol” to 9 p.m. starting March 13.

“Rake” will be followed on Fridays by “Enlisted” at 9 p.m. and “Raising Hope” at 9:30 p.m.

The network's new comedy “Surviving Jack,” starring “Law & Order: SVU” alum Christopher Meloni, will premiere March 27 at 9:30 p.m., with “American Idol” shifting to half-hour episodes on that night.

“Rake,” starring Greg Kinnear as a charismatic attorney/trainwreck, has had a rough time in the ratings, posting a 0.8 rating/2 share — a 20 percent drop from the previous week — in the 18-49 demographic most important to advertisers with its most recent airing.

    The original Australian version of Rake is quite good (and available on Netflix). It's too bad that the US rendition apparently hasn't translated so well.
