Ratings: Bones Returns Steady

Fox’s Bones returned from its two-week holiday hiatus on par with its last fresh episode, delivering 4.4 million total viewers and a 0.9 demo rating (per finals).

Leading out of that, Home Free (2.1 mil/0.5) was flat.


ABC | President Obama’s town hall discussion (5.8 mil/1.0) brought a bigger audience and 11 percent better demo number than BattleBots last did. Greatest Hits (4.4 mil/0.9) in turn surged 26 percent in audience, while steady in the demo.

NBC | Spartan (3.1 mil/1.0) was up a tenth, while Aquarius (1.8 mil/0.4) was flat.

CBS | Big Brother (6.2 mil/1.9) dominated the night in the demo, while an old Bang drew Thursday’s largest audience (7.2 mil).

THE CW | Beauty and the Beast (710K/0.2) was steady in the demo while slipping to its smallest audience since November 2013 aka its second-tiniest audience ever.

    I should be used to it by now, but the way FOX treats Bones and it’s fans will forever annoy me. You’d think they would promote their longest running show even a little, but no. It’s baffling.

      Yes its frustrating and we should be used to it by now but only 13 more episodes before David and Emily and company are free from the crap that is FOX. Yes Bones was down last night but not nearly as bad as I thought they would be and not as much as that ugly 0.7 and 3.9 number they had recently. They did much better than I thought they would last night. Next week s episode looks terrific and scary.

    Two weeks of airing repeats: is Bones a repeat or is it new !? ( good luck on that casual viewers!!) airing NEW eps in July…Fox were lucky even to get that rating for Bones… Maybe they might get a finals uptick.

    Hopefully more people remember its new & will tune in next week for the season finale, it looks AMAZING

    • kmw says:

      It sure does and even more to look forward too knowing Emily is directing season premiere. Really I expected Bones to go down further especially with the President on and I hope it goes up too but I don’t think they will. just imagine if Bones had been on a network that cared more.

  3. I surprised people still watch it considering the weird schedule……

    Step 1. Find Bones on the schedule
    Step 2. Figure out if it’s a new episode
    Step 3. Decide to watch it.
    Too many steps for most. (I did, did, did)

    Well but it did get adjusted up to 0.9 in the final numbers!
