Bones Ratings: The Skull in the Sculpture

The return of Bones last night, airing "The Skull in the Sculpture," brought the return of great ratings for our beloved show. Unable to top the Dancing With the Stars ratings powerhouse for overall numbers, Bones still was able to hit over 10 million viewers, as well as win the all-important 18-49 demo group, and tie the 18-34.

I'm glad I can say I've never watched Dancing with the Stars. Who would really want to? The attraction to Reality TV is beyond my comprehension.

Merv, I'm with you there. I've watched one episode. The dancing was interesting, but it certainly wasn't interesting enough to make me want to watch it... ever again!

I don't understand the draw for reality TV, either. It bores me to death. There's no active storyline. It's all just... blah.

Add me to the list of people who do not comprehend reality TV. As for our ratings: YAY! The show may not be making House numbers, but at least we're not losing viewers. Not at all. =)

I could see finding maybe one season of Dancing with the Stars interesting, because the dancing is cool to watch (I've seen maybe two episodes total) but I don't understand how, six or seven seasons later, it's still huge. Isn't it just the same dances every season?

That being said, I'm very proud of Bones for holding their ratings against Dancing with the Stars!!! That's a nice accomplishment!

some people in my fam watch it DWTS, and its okay. i personally dont really like it. i kinda enjoy it when it is near the finals, cause then the dances are good. Bones should be ranked higher than them, but what more can we do, i am still happy that Bones is doing so great on the ratings!! i bet if it was shown the same night as house they would be even higher. like Bones at 8 and House at 9... i would LOVE that! :)
