Bones Ratings Season 11

Ratings: Bones Rises, Spartan Slips

Fox’s Bones this Thursday drew 4.4 million total viewers and a 0.9 demo rating, rebounding 12 percent and two tenths from last week’s series lows… as it heads into a two-week holiday break.

Leading out of that, Home Free (2.2 mil/0.5) ticked down from its opener.

Elsewhere in the ratings….

THE CW | Beauty and the Beast (840K/0.2) was steady.

NBC | With no Ninja Warrior setting the table, Spartan (2.7 mil/0.7) dropped 40 and 50 percent from its Monday premiere. Aquarius (1.8 mil/0.4) slipped 25 percent in audience while steady in the demo.

CBS | Big Brother (5.6 mil/1.7) was down from Wednesday’s premiere (6.2 mil/1.9) and off 12 and 19 percent from its year-ago Thursday opener.

ABC | BattleBots did 3.9 mil/0.9 and then 3.9 mil/1.0, down sharply from last season’s average of 4.6 mil/1.4.

    Yay Bones!! I expect another slip after yet another break though :( which could be avoided if Fox actually promoted the show more, but it’s Fox.

    I was REALLY hoping Battlebots would’ve performed much better, the first episode was pretty impressive…

    I enjoy Spartan,looks like a tough course.Wish they’d switch it up more though so the teams would have to adapt.

      My friend was on one of the teams. A lot of those people had never done a Spartan Race before (though you wouldn’t know that because the editing focuses on one or two teams) so it may seem like they get a lot of practice but they do a lot of the obstacles only once or twice ever and have never seen anything like it before.

    Home Free was much better last season. Everybody was creative, worked hard, and ended up winning a house. I loved everyone and I think I cried happy every week. This year they are winning a house for their “hero”. They are doing nothing creative. It is the second week and it’s turned into Survivor — mean and with a lot of back-stabbing. And you hardly get to see the house the hero won.
