  • I hope Glee wraps up McKinley and makes it where all the graduates migrate to NYC so they can finish the show there. And Season 6 can be fully held in NYC.
    I mean it would be easy to have storylines to bring most of the cast there.
    This season was just all over the place. The music was great but the storylines were meh. Just to much going on and no final focus on bringing everything together.

    • That seems unlikely. It is called Glee because it is about a high school glee club. It isn’t called Rachel Goes To New York. NBC already tried a show about Broadway, and we see how that turned out.

      • If you haven’t read the article, FOX president himself said that the directions is going to gradually focus on NYC in the season 5. And what is your sentiment toward rachel? She barely in the finale and her role have been reduce a lot this season so your theory about rachel show is doesn’t make sense

  • Good thing is, if HIMYM doesn’t move I won’t have competition on Mondays. Bad thing is, fridays never are a good slot. But I don’t have anything else there so good for Bones.

    • After the World Series

  • It’s clear that TPTB at the network want Bones to “die”, IMO. So, while I don’t think it deserves to go out like that, I hope they just announce “Final Season” before the premiere in the fall.

  • Why is it that every time Bones settles into a new slot, FOX feels the need to move it?

  • I’m ok with Bones moving to Friday, as I think it will do fine there. It’s Raising Hope moving to Friday that has me very concerned.

  • Season 2 of bones was aired on Fridays at 8pm. I still have the poster from a magazine. It has been on every night of the week except Sat and Sun.

    • New episode never were on Fridays they showed repeats on Fridays I remember that because it was during season 2 that I got into the show and would then watch those season 1 repeats on Fridays to catch up with the show

  • WTH FOX you are going to move Bones to Fridays after the World Series Why do you hate Bones fans so much just keep the show on Mondays at 8pm where the show has been doing great I am really tired of the Friday move threats they make every year and the fact that this show has been moved so many times during it’s run I have never had a show that moved around so much like Fox has moved Bones. Once Bones and New Girl end I will be done with FOX because I am so sick of the disrespect they give to Bones and Bones fans. The constant move and the constant threats to move to Friday and now the what looks to be an actual move to Friday is just wrong and I am sick of it I still believe there will be a season 10 and I want that too but once the series is over I am done and I will watch New Girl online instead because this really is ridiculous. They better at least really promote the show which I doubt they will as they have never really promoted the show much. Bones is in my opinion the best show on TV right now and I hate the way Fox is treating it.

  • Bones. My wife and I have watched every episode, we thought the show was great. Just watched the season finale, Pelant lived and got away again. We are in agreement that we have watched our last episode. They have worn out the Pelant storyline.

    • I am sorry you will no longer watch Bones, the season 8 finale was a controversy which is what season finales are supposed to be. That particular episode is a perfect example of Brennan fear of having everything and a strong possibility of losing it. Also give the viewer’s how the hunters become the hunted with this one bad guy that studied the team to know how to attack them, with Brennan its logic (who is smarter) for Booth it is his honor and beliefs. The finale brings up so many questions for next season, will Brennan revert to her old self and be closed off from everyone; will Booth set aside the badge to go on the hunt. Yes Pelant got away; just remember NCIS Gibbs had Ari in multiple episodes, the only question would be who will kill Pelant because next season will be about battle and how to live with the consequence for our heroes.

  • I think Bones will do well wherever they put it. However, I find it to be a terribly strange lead in for Raising Hope. This is scaring me… I really don’t want them to kill Raising Hope!

  • Never should have gotten rid of Ben and kate…

  • Although I don’t watch Bones, I can honestly say that moving it to Fridays seems like a very bad idea for FOX.

    Comment by Lindsey – May 14, 2013 08:57 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I don’t think Bones moving to Fridays is a death sentence at all. The Fox execs said that they it’s something positive and that they think it will help boost it’s ratings. I think as long they think it’s positive and that it could help Bones, I think they are safe.
