Bones Ratings: Yanks in the U.K.

So, how did Bones fare last night? Fox has hyped it big time, even off network...did it work? Season 3 started with 8.4 million and ended with 10.3 million.

Season 4?

Last night's ratings, from TVbytheNumbers, show that it's starting off pretty well!

Time Net Show Viewers Live+SD (Millons) 18-49 Rating/ Share 18-34 Rating/ Share
8:00 NBC America’s Got Talent (8-10p) 10.15 2.7/7 1.9/6, 2.0/6
FOX Bones (8-10p) 9.69 3.3/9 2.9/9
UNI Al Diablo con los Guapos 5.07 2.1/6 2.8/9
CBS Greatest American Dog 4.89 1.4/4 0.9/3
ABC Wife Swap (repeat) 3.72 1.3/4 1.2/4
CW America’s Next Top Model (8-10p) 3.48 1.7/5 1.9/6, 2.1/6
9:00 CBS Criminal Minds (repeat) 5.72 1.6/4 0.7/2
UNI Fuego en la Sangre 5.17 2.1/5 2.6/7
ABC Supernanny (repeat) 3.25 1.2/3 1.2/3

But that doesn't tell the whole story. Here's a 1/2 hour breakdown:

Bones (Fox)
8:00 p.m. – Viewers: 8.77 million, A18-49: 2.9/ 9
8:30 p.m. – Viewers: 9.57 million, A18-49: 3.2/ 9
9:00 p.m. – Viewers: 10.22 million , A18-49: 3.4/ 9
9:30 p.m. – Viewers: 10.22 million, A18-49: 3.5/ 9

Bones steadily increased, every 1/2 hour, including the all-important 18-49 demographic. I think that's a pretty good sign, don't you? And by the last hour they were pulling near finale rates. Let's hope it just goes up from here!
