Last season, it looked like Bones might be coming to an end after 10 seasons. The network has bounced the series all over the schedule and the ratings have come way down over the years. Will the numbers start to rebound in season 11? Will this FOX series be cancelled or renewed for a 12th season? Stay tuned.
Bones revolves around a married couple who use their skills as an FBI agent (David Boreanaz) and a forensic anthropologist (Emily Deschanel) to solve difficult cases. The show’s cast also includes Michaela Conlin, Tamara Taylor, TJ Thyne, and John Boyd.
The ratings are typically the best sign of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

Note: These are the final national numbers (unless noted with an “*”). These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple of days later.
What do you think? Do you still like the Bones TV show? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a 12th season?
