  • Thanks tvline for giving Bones some love! Way better than FOX network who I have yet to actually see promo the season premier during primetime or any time…sort it out FOX!!

    • @amber, agreed, where are the Bones promos, two weeks and nothing. If I see one more SleepHollow promo, I will hurl.

    • FOX hates Bones

      • Fox doesn’t hate Bones, Fox just takes the Bones fans for granted.

    • I think at this point they think Bones isn’t going to grow in the ratings. It has it’s hardcore fanbase and that isn’t likely to change. Hence why they are putting a more promotional push towards their new shows.

  • BONES move to Fridays starting November 8th may very well be the beginning of the end of the Emily Deschanel/David Boreanaz series. :-(

    • Well aren’t you a little ray of sunshine? :p It isn’t written in stone that BONES moves to Friday…and if it does, it’s not the end of the world…it repeats well on Friday and it if it maintains a good rating for a Friday S10 will be a shoe in…unlike Monday which is a dog fight for the rating share.

      • I think that Bones is still solid for Fox, so Fridays will just probably give them less challenging competition than Mondays did. I agree that if it maintains good numbers, it should be back for Season 10!

    • Technically speaking it is potentially every tv series, now airing, last season unless they are fortunate enough to have a multi season pick up prior….lets not be doom and gloom with only Bones. :)

    • These days, Fridays seem to be nearly a regular night of programming for most network channels. CBS has always been a fan of Fridays, and most of the networks seem to be joining them in recent years. I wouldn’t worry about it too much. I’d be more worried about Bones being an ensemble show getting up there in years. The economics of that situation tends to result in cancellations even when the ratings don’t suggest death.

      • Bones is like Castle and Moonlighting on “steroids”. Moving to Fridays come November 8th may or may not have the same fate Fox was with Fringe and Touch. Don’t be some wannabe TV critic and get over it or perhaps wait until May 2014 when 24: Live Another Day premieres. :-( :-(

    • “Bones returns Monday, Sept. 16 on Fox.” – taken from the original tvline article above! NOT Fridays

      Comment by Sandie – August 30, 2013 11:21 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Currently Fox plans to move Bones to Friday nights after the baseball World Series, which means unless something changes in November Bones will move to Friday nights. I just will look at it as an opportunity to stay up late discussing the show online with other Bones fans. :) And again I think it’s Fox taking the Bones fans for granted. We’ve followed them all over the schedule, why not follow them to Friday night.

      • according to an interview with Emily and David they will be moving to Friday nights in November.

    • Monday has them fighting Dancing with the Stars. Tuesday would have them fighting NCIS or SHIELD. Wednesday would have them fighting Survivor, X-Factor, and Revolution. Thursday has them fighting TBBT. Friday has them fighting Undercover Boss and Dateline. Friday seems like the best chance to grab viewers, and as was said above, CBS is putting a lot of energy into its Friday night lineup with H5O and Blue Bloods. Bones at 8 is a good time slot, IMO because it has no direct competition.

      • Bones competition on Monday is much more than DWTS…it’s The Voice, CBS comedy block (HIMYM + ?), and Monday night football too…8pm Monday ìs a brutal slot and keeps Fox steady during their time there.

        Comment by lucy – August 30, 2013 12:02 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • So you’d rather have them be the 4th place show on Mondays then the potential 1st or 2nd place show on Friday? Clearly even the Fox execs don’t think that. :)

          Comment by Badpenny – August 30, 2013 01:10 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Friday suits me fine. It doesn’t interfer with Tuesday and Thursday shows.

      • Guess you didn’t mention about Almost Human aren’t you, Badpenny? BTW, how many episodes will Bones have on Mondays before it moves to Fridays come 11-8-13?

        Comment by Jack Bauer 2.0 – August 30, 2013 09:16 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • I don’t spend time worrying about untested series. Almost Human is untested. It might do great or it might bomb. As it has no established audience there’s no way to say. Check out one of Hart’s recent interviews where he states it’s possible Bones might not move at all, so even he’s uncertain of AH’s fate. :)
          .
          As far as how many episodes before the move to Friday? I don’t know. I’m guessing around 7-8, but then it breaks for the baseball playoffs as well.

    • Not if you love Bones. You just go where they go and that’s all there is to it.

      • The one challenge is that for some, such as myself, that following might be setting a TiVo Season pass and they really prefer to give the advertisers as many live eyes as possible….

      • I watched seven seasons of this show because I enjoyed it. I read posts about it because I want to see if it’s okay to start watching it again.

  • I think Bones has been in every time slot known to man yet I have forgone watching other shows I really like simply because it interfered with Bones (even if it’s a rerun I won’t flip to the other channel) I also never miss it when they replay it weekends on NBC late, after SNL (this may only be in my region). FOX is fully aware that the loyal hardcore Bones fans are just like me! What disappoints me is that Bones doesn’t get the reconition that other syndicated crime shoes get world wide! You always here about the legend of Law and Order etal, CSI etal, Criminal Minds (which I also love), just to name a few, I think it’s time for Bones to get the world wide reconition and love they deserve. I don’t know who to blame for this since I know the Bones fans themselves are uber loyal and the show is syndicated on network and several cable channels, FOX could show them more love but I don’t think it’s their fault either. Maybe they need a new PR person who has the ability to make them the cult classic they deserve to be! Just my 2 cents, anyone else agree?
