Keep Bones. I love the show. I am getting tired of reality TV. Who cares who wins on American Idol? I disliked all the animated shows who are vulgar and crude. Thank goodness I can still watch repeats of Bones on TNT.

I love bones. I had waited for the season to start and was then surprised when it seemed to disappear. It is a great show. The chemistry between bones and booth remind me of an older show jag that I also loved. I think that bones should definitely be renewed!!!

I vote to renew. This is a great show with a great cast and even better music. I especially like Ryan O’Neil as Bones’ dad.
