Bones Ratings: Double Feature

Curious about how Bones did on it's first Thursday night? TVBytheNumbers says:

Fox’s Bones moved to Thursday with two episodes last night, and while it swept the 8pm hour, against stronger competition at 9pm it finished a distant fourth in the demos. Still, those results were a massive improvement over the embarrassment that Fox has been going through on Thursday’s this season.
As many expected, there was a drop in numbers with the move (about a million) and the tough competition at 9 was not good for Bones. Let's hope a lot of new people recorded it and the show got some new pickups! Let's see the numbers climb from here!

Yay Bones! I'm not too worried about the 9pm/8pmC slot, since that's not its usual time.

Honestly I don't think anyone expected to do well against the biggest players of the week at 9/8. But cheers for winning the 8/7 slot!

Glad to see it swept the 8 PM hour. That's a very good sign for the next few months. I've found that a lot of fans didn't know there would BE a 9 PM episode, so that must have hurt it, too. I know several fans who don't go online and look up TV shows like we do, so they had no idea two new episodes would be aired. Some caught the second one due to commercials during "Double Trouble" and some turned the TV off before they could find out and ended up missing the second hour. But I'm not too worried about that either, since it's not the normal time.

I used to be a huge CSI fan, but now I find it boring. I just started watching bones about 3 weeks ago and I'm hooked...have seen just about every episode. Hopefully, all the people bored with CSI and Grey's will start watching Bones.

Im definetly not worried about the other time slot, but when survivor comes on the 9pm/8pm slot then i think there might be some problems. I think it was a stupid descison on FOX's part to put Bones nxt to survivor.
