The ratings for Bones keep dropping lower each season. There’s also been talk that season 10 will likely be the show’s last. Will FOX cancel their long-running series or renew it for an 11th season instead. We’ll have to wait and see.
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, 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.

What do you think? Do you still like the Bones TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for an 11th season?
Cancel Bones? Seriously?? They don’t have anything to replace it. Even Gotham, which I like, only has 6.1 million viewers & that show is in 2nd place on FOX’s list of shows. They way I see it, any show with at least 3.5 million viewers, FOX should grab onto and not let go.
What would they replace it with? Another awful cooking show? Please! Gag me with a spoon.
PLEASE DON’T CANCEL THE “BONES” TV SERIES. I even record & watch the re-runs from.any network it runs!!!!!!!! MY ENTIRE FAMILY WATCHES THE BONES SERIES!!!!!
I emailed been watching bones since the beginning and have loved it since the first episode, Pilot.
I truly hope that they renew for another season and many more after that.
It seems all the good shows are being cancelled and more comedy involving ethnic families with ridiculous plots- Just silly- are being produced. I compare it to and age of one medical show or cowboy show after another. No originality. A good show such as Bones is hard to find. It contains a little bit of action evolved around persons with families and careers. Why do networks keep getting rid of excellent shows? The Mentalist and Perception being among others. What happened to Major Crimes? I will especially miss watching Bones.
please bring back bones it is one of my
Favourite shows maybe it is not getting the
Because it’s on late at night maybe
If it’s on early t might get better ratings
Don’t cancel it. just on to late for me my daughter temperance comes first. Love the show as you can see on my daughters name
Every time time a TV series is good it is canceled, good figure!
When is bones going to be on
for the next season
Love Bones. Please do not cancel.
Please keep Bones series going..I miss it already!!! Great show!!
Whose brilliant idea was it to keep changing the time and day the show is aired-Monday or Friday was fine-to air the same time as greys is not a good decision !. Someone need to rethink that!
I love Bones- get it together please!
It would be nice if bones was aired prime time
is it going to be change to a different time
if so the rating will drop.
I love this show and want it to return for 11th season. I have to admit earlier episodes were better. Especially the bones character.
Please keep Bones on television. It would mean the world to us boneheads who love the show and it’s the right thing to do. The show is funny, family entertainment that I can never get tired of and the actors are great!!! Don’t let our show go!!!
