Bones Promo from the Premier

Here is the Bones promo shown at the end of Yanks in the U.K. last night. It highlights the next episode, The Man in the Outhouse, as well as more upcoming stories and scenes in season 4.

Thanks to Tracie for posting it and Sarah for tipping me off.

PS I'm glad you guys are posting your thoughts on the episode and I can't wait to read them! Thanks to computer issues, life busy-ness and more, my review just can't go up yet. The fact it's a 2 hour episode and I do like to run on, and on and on, well...that's my story and I'm stickin' to it! And yes, posting a review, like...totally within this week. You guys can post a shame train in comments. I don't mind.

Bones Livechat: Partial Log

I got so into the fun I didn't think about logging the chat until the end...and the history didn't go back to the beginning! Here's the last third of the fun for you.

We will definitely do this again, with some time/day changes to be more accommodating to everyone (including spouses' sleep schedules).

Livechat PDF

PS One third of the chat = 11 pages of line-by-line text. If you didn't join us, you missed out on all the fun!

David Boreanaz interview on MyFoxRaleigh

This video interview with David Boreanaz looks to have been conducted yesterday. MyFoxRaleigh asks about London, Season 4, Zack, and more. It's not the most engaging interview but David does mention that they will be "traveling" more this year. US travel provides a lot of interesting twists, so I look forward to that.

The interviewer asks a lot of good questions and they intersperse Yanks and Pilot clips, which is an interesting mix. (They show the Oliver Laurier take-down, one of my favorite moments.)

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!

David Boreanaz on Regis and Kelly

I'm kind of out of touch today (Bonesday hangover?) but hopefully tomorrow I will catch up with posting all the media reviews from TVSquad to EW and beyond. I might get my own up today, we'll see. Glad to see all the comments on the episode.

Milky sent me this, just incase some of you missed it: David Boreanaz on Regis & Kelly.

TheTVAddict Interviews Michaela Conlin

Remember, a whole month ago, when I told you that TheTVAddict was taking questions for Michaela Conlin? Well, he's finally posted the interview!

If given the choice, where in the world would you like to go?
Back to Tokyo. I was recently there and people watch the show and know the show. It was totally crazy.

Have you seen the Japanese version of the show? What do you think of the woman who dubs your voice?
I actually haven’t seen an episode of BONES in Japan and I really haven’t given my voice dub a thought until right now. But that’s so bizarre. Somebody would be dubbing my voice in Japanese!

Check out the entire interview here. Did he ask any of your questions?

Thoughts on Yanks in the U.K.

Many of you posted live thoughts thread last night, and we had a fantastic live chat! I hope to post at least a partial transcript today. I say partial because, well, how was I to know it would only keep about 20 minutes at a time. *grumble*.

After some reflection, and especially for those who didn't get to chat...what do you think?

I plan to get my review up today but it is a 2 hour episode, so we'll see! Post away in the meantime =)
