Bones is NOT on Fridays in January - Rejoice!

Hallelujah, Bones will NOT be on Friday nights when the season continues in the new air. Despite early determinations (as in, last May) that Fox would push Bones to Friday nights in January, I can happily report that will NOT be happening.

Thursdays are the night.

Bones will air on Thursdays, beginning January 15th, from 8-9pm. They will possibly skip 1 week, and on January 29th pick up that as the new weekly time slot for good.

For a little bit of a second I thought Bones would be airing the same day as House, but I soon realised it must have been wishful thinking, lol.

Anyway, I'm glad it didn't move to friday!!

I'm hoping Lost will air on mondays (haven't read anything about it, what with it starting on FEBRUARY ::rools eyes::), so I'll have an easier time waiting-- only 3 days waiting for serial-pleasure!

I'm ecstatic that Bones won't be on Fridays!!!

I'm just a little worried that a move to Thursdays might kill its sky-rocketing ratings. I LOVE BONES more than any show, and I know it will preclude any other shows on television for me, no matter which day of the week... BUT There are so many extremely highly-rated shows that have had the Thursday time-slot for a long time running (Ugly Betty, The Office, 30 Rock, Lost, Grey's, etc.) that are vying for the same audience as Bones. And, if anyone's TIVO is like mine, I can only record two shows at the same time.... so I just hope people don't decide to cut out Bones.

But I'm hoping for the best!!

Lily said...

I am so glad it's not on Friday either....but i watch Lost too...I'll probably have to record that and watch it later...yea i don't know why Lost starts in feb...


Juju bee.....i have a question

Are you indian? they reason why i ask is because your name(juju bee) came from this person..in india....just curious....

Lily said...

the*

Milky said...

Does that mean Lost always goes on thurdays? No hope for my little scheme?
*Bummer*

It'll be a long while if I have to wait the exact same time to watch Lost and Bones.
Or Bones and Lost. Haven't decided yet.

AMH said...

Bones...or Office/30 Rock. Bah. I don't know what to do.

heirofloki said...

Oh, my. Do they actually know what's on Thursdays on the other networks? Geez. What's wrong with Wednesday, people? It's a perfectly good day, and we totally own it.

Then again, they are putting Dollhouse on Fridays and moving SCC as lead-in. Which, gosh, kiss of death much?

juju bee said...

@ lily... I'm not Indian, I'm actually 100% Irish haha. (hope you're not disappointed!) my name is Julie and my b/f calls me 'juju bee,' like the candy. I didn't know it was Indian, but that's cool!

also, milky.. I'm totally not sure about the whole Lost thing. I just know it's aired Thursdays in the past. But you could be right about it being on Mondays. (In fact, I hope you're right!)

I kind of wish that Fox had decided to put both Bones and House on Tuesday... I think that would be a great day for them, and I (personally) LOVE the Bones/House pairing.

BUT I don't want to sound ungrateful... I don't think words can even express how happy I am that it's not on Fridays (that would have been SUCH a disappointment!)

Stephanie said...

amh, you shouldn't have to chose between Bones and Office/30 Rock. Bones will be on at 8, and those two NBC shows cover the 9:00 hour. And I believe Lost is usually at 9 or 10 on Thursdays, isn't it?

Thursday is full of high-rated shows, but most of them aren't in the 8 pm time slot, and therefore, won't be direct competition for Bones. I'm happy it's not on Fridays! I was kinda hoping for Wednesday after American Idol though.

AMH said...

I realized that after I had posted. I forget that I'm in a different time :-) Still wish they would put House and Bones on the same night.

Lily said...

ooo...Juju bee..thats cool...well this indian actor created that word...thats all..but it's funny..i didnt no there was a candy called that...lol

Hmm, I wonder if they'll leave it on Thursdays in the UK? We had 'The Skull in the Sculpture' last night. We're *never* this up-to-date with US shows!

Louise said...

Well, I'm glad it's not Fridays, but Thursday seems almost as bad for going out and missing it potential ... will just have to keep an eye on my DVR!

Milk Mama said...

Sweet! So The Hero in the Hold is on the 15th! Can't wait!!!!!!

Jane said...

OT, but Dollhouse on Friday? Does the network has a death wish for this show?

Thursday isn't too bad. Considering that it is one of Fox's higher rated dramas. At least it isn't moved to 9, where it would be against Grey's Anatomy...

Shep said...

Does this mean UK veiwers will see the new episodes before those in the US? Or does it have to be shown there first?

Wendy said...

I would guess you UK viewers will go back on some type of delay, either a week long, or more, and keep you time slot, or they will change the day in the UK too. I'm no expert on all US shows, but I'm pretty sure they US always gets them first.
