Bones: Season Nine Ratings

Bones TV show on FOX ratingsThe ratings for Bones have been declining over the past few seasons. Will they continue to fall or will they start to rise? Could it be in danger of being cancelled or is it a lock to be renewed for season 11 on FOX? Stay tuned!

Bones revolves around a forensic anthropologist and an FBI agent who now share more than just cases. The cast includes Emily Deschanel, David Boreanaz, Michaela Conlin, TJ Thyne, Tamara Taylor, and John Francis Daley.

The ratings are typically the best indication 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 — typically the following morning, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

Bones is my favorite show. That’s the only reason I watch Fox. I love all the actors. I watched all the episodes over and over again on Netflix. If you stop Bones there will be nothing else for me to see. I love this show!!!!!

Yes, Yes, Yes, keep Bones on for season 11 & please renewal for 5 more. Look at Law & Order SUV, they have had 15 seasons on another network & still going.

Bones is a great show, offering of course bones, murder, drama, humor & romance, the show has little bit of everything that is entertaining.

Emily & David is our favorite duo, plus they have a great cast & crew.

Fox you keep adding new shows that are meaning less & they end up being cancelled, why not stick with a show that has proved time & again, (after YOU have moved them to every night of week), they continue to come back strong.

Come on FOX, do the right thing, Keep Bones on…….renew contracts & add additional seasons (at least 5), so every year we don’t have to go through this fiasco & that would be one problem you would not have to deal with for a few years. Many, many fans of Bones (Facebook shows them with over 12 million fans), including myself if Bones goes, so does Fox.

I have watched Bones since the beginning. It is my all time favorite show, and if it went off the air, I would never watch Fox again. The greatest show on tv is Bones! Don’t get rid of it

I faithfully watch every episode of Bones. I would hate for it to go off the air. There is only a few decent tv shows to watch on tv and this is one of the best. I love the actors.

bones is my all time favorite show, and the only one I whatch in fix. If they end it I will be so sad. :(

Since Sweets is dead why bring back Zahl he didn’t really kill anyone, and for God’s sakes you better not cancel Bones there are a lot of people out there who will stop watching Fox period. I’m one of them

I’m so sick of the rating knocking off a show in 1 season. I didn’t catch Sons of Anarychy till season 5 and got addicted right away just like Bones I’ve watched the episodes over & over. You already took off Gamg Related which was a very good show. I hope TNT or FX picks up Gang Related. DO NOT get rid of Bones there the only reason I watch a Fox show.

Please don’t mess with a good thing! It is interesting, fascination and educational! Bones herself needs to mellow some, but that’s the natural progression and growth of a character.
if the show remains on a Monday night it conflicts with football, not that it can’t be recorded but ratings don’t necessarily show that.


Kim September 19, 2014 at 11:26 pm

Darn GOOD show!


Anonymous August 25, 2014 at 2:24 am

I like the show a lot and I think they should keep it up I think they can keep it going for a really long time


Debbie Bloom August 15, 2014 at 6:53 am

I Love this show. It is something I look forward to watching. I watched all available episodes on Netflix to see it from the start and looked forward to it on Mondays with the new episodes. When football season started it moved to another day (which at the moment I can’t remember) and I tried to catch it each time. I am hoping it will be picked up again as I want to see how Booth and Bones get out of the mess with the government!

Leave well enough alone. Often times networks take an axe to great shows (don’t believe in ratings generated from narrow viewing audience-try outside the 48) and run new shows, with uninteresting story-lines and untried or tired actors.
Bones has all components to keep me interested through the entire episode and look forward to upcoming show, any day of the week (go TiVo!)
