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.

    Keep it going. Its the best show on TV. Its interesting and it tries to keep somewhat of a balance in issues and points of view. And the chemistry between the cast is rare. Fox has a good one here. Dont blow it.

    This is THE best crime show hands down. I lead a fairly busy life so i usually record the episode on my DVR or watch it on demand. This is the first show I’ve thoroughly followed from the beginning, I dont want this spectacular show fall apart because of some silly numbers. This show matters to people and we as viewers have grown a rather fond relationship with this show and its characters. To cancel this show would be a huge mistake. Also the previous season ended on a cliff hanger, they just HAVE to renew!!

    Bones should be renewed, on a set date, and time. It has been bounced around so much it’s been hard to keep up with. The writing is still worth the search.

    I am a big Bones fan. Part of the problem with the ratings dropping is that FOX moves it around too much. Also look at what they are up against on Monday night.

      I agree. If they would pick a spot and leave it alone , you would see the ratings increase. The writing, characters and show continues to be great.
