    My wife and I last night did a 6 episode marithon of Fox's Bones last night.

    And the show is growing on us.

    Any word on it's future...

    Aka, in reference to Fox's REUNION which we just deleted all the episodes off the TiVo since it has been pulled.

    9EST?

    Interesting... I guess the American Idol Results "slot" is now 8pm EST (I could have sworn it was 9pm EST)... Either way... Make sense as 24 on Monday, American Idol and House on Tuesday.... And the 10PM slot is locked out due to Local News broadcasts..

    Thats what I read Earl, but anything could change. I remember originally, House was going to move to Monday when American Idol started, but I guess something on FOX on Wednesdays was cancelled opening up that slot.

    Yeah, it was Head Cases that was cancelled, opening up the 9:00 Weds slot, plus Prison Break coming back in March that Monday opening is gone. I've also heard that Bones may move to 8:00 Weds when the preliminary American Idol stuff is over and the Weds (results) show goes to 1/2 hour, with that moving to 9:00. That was just something I read here on the forum, I don't recall a link to anything authoritative or even any link at all for that matter, so who knows. But it makes sense, IIRC AI has always shortened the Weds. show to 1/2 hour part-way through the season, correct? But wasn't it usually at 8:30?

    And IIRC this show was picked up for a full season really early on. I've heard a lot of folks here (myself included) say that this show really picked up around the 4th episode, after it came back from the baseball playoffs hiatus. I had almost given up on it, but forgot to cancel the SP and figured I'd give it another chance; glad I did.

    It's funny how they were talking about the show being cancelled back in 2006. Here we are 11 years later, and it's still on. :)

    The first season ran from 2005 to 2006, so of course people were talking in 2006 about whether it would be renewed for a second season.

    Right. My point was that little did they know that not only would it get renewed, but that it would turn out to be among the most successful shows of all time.

    This time, they really, really mean it. This is the last season. Unless Netflix wants to do a four-episode miniseries in 2025.

    It was hyperbole, but if you judge a show strictly by its longevity, then saying Bones is among the most successful shows of all time is hardly a stretch. When you look at the entire history of TV, how many shows have lasted 12 seasons? A couple dozen at most?

    It certainly has been around for a good length of time. I don't mean to negate that, but amazing to look at the longevity of so many shows: List of longest-running United States television series - Wikipedia.

    If you just look at evening drama, I count "Bones" in the top dozen-and-a-half of shows or so.

    Interesting list. I was definitely thinking specifically about prime time scripted shows when declaring it among the longest running. Obviously, it can't compete with news shows and talk shows that have been on for decades.

    Edit: This list more accurately reflects where Bones stands in the pantheon of prime time scripted TV:

    Surprisingly, I wasn't that far off when I guessed that there were only a coupled dozen shows that have lasted that long. :)

    Yep, that's why I didn't hold them against you. ;)

    But I'm so amazed that so many shows have lasted that long--and also, candidly, that "Bones" is up there as well. My guess is, being on Fox helped. I watch the show every now-and-again (I just have fallen out of the habit--but still have a Season Pass) and still find its creativity and acting fresh, and especially appreciate Emily Deschanel's quirky and yet nuanced character/acting--I don't think that she's received the credit that's been due (apart from a nice job and pay, of course).

    I thought this show went off the air several years ago.


    Either way, nice to see a thread pop up that was started by Earl.
