The ratings for Bones keep dropping lower each season. There's also been talk that season 10 will likely be the show's last. Will Fox cancel their long-running series or renew it for an 11th season instead. We'll have to wait and see.
Bones revolves around a married couple who use their skills as an FBI agent (David Boreanaz) and a forensic anthropologist (Emily Deschanel) to solve difficult cases. The show's cast also includes Michaela Conlin, Tj Thyne, Tamara Taylor, and John Francis Daley.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- typically the following morning, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest.

It came out of nowhere. That basically sums up our thoughts on Bones' season 10 premiere on Thursday night, which featured the loss of a major character. (Warning, major, major, major spoilers ahead!) In the episode's final moments, Sweets (John Francis Daley) was beaten to death, dying in Booth's (David Boreanaz) arms. Excuse us while we once again go cry all the tears. A part of the Bones family for seven years, Daley was written off the show as he's set to direct the upcoming remake of National Lampoons' Vacation, and his cast members are definitely mourning the loss of both the actor and the character.

We already know that when The Simpsons meet Family Guy’s Griffins in Sunday’s Smashtacular (9/8c on Fox), dads Homer and Peter mix like short-shorts and a fat dude. But how do les enfants terribles Bart and Stewie get on?

Uh, say what? Tonight's Bones premiere something very upsetting, you guys, and our slightly tipsy (Thanks, Shonda Rhimes!) brains don't quite know how to process it yet. (Warning, major spoilers ahead!) The beloved Dr. Lance Sweets (John Francis Daley) is dead. We repeat: Dead. At the very end of the season 10 premiere, in the quest to clear Booth's name and help him re-adjust after prison, Sweets was beaten to death. He died in Booth's arms, and now everything is terrible. To make things worse (though also, in a way, ever so slightly better?), Sweets' girlfriend, Daisy, is pregnant. Way to break our hearts once again, television. First of all, we saw Booth being horribly »
The following story contains major spoilers from the Bones premiere, so, if the episode is still sitting on your DVR (or you reside on the West Coast), you best steer clear.
“It was not a fun day.”
That’s Bones co-star Tamara Taylor’s refreshingly blunt assessment of the day John Francis Daley shot his final scenes as Dr. Lance Sweets, whose life was cut shockingly and tragically short in Thursday’s Season 10 premiere.

It's not a typical way to kickoff a season, but Bones launched into its tenth run on Fox Thursday night with an abrupt exit for one of its stars — and it is most assuredly a permanent one. [Here is the obligatory spoiler alert for those who haven't already seen "The Conspiracy of the Corpse."] As anyone paying close attention to actor John Francis Daley's schedule could probably tell — the multihyphenate is currently in Georgia, co-directing his reboot of National Lampoon's Vacation franchise with writing partner Jonathan M.

You may remember that in 2005, there was a new show about people who solved crime using bones. It was called, unsurprisingly, Bones, and it starred the guy from Buffy and Angel and the woman whose younger sister was in Elf. Remember that show? It hasn’t gone anywhere. Or maybe it would be more accurate to say that it’s gone everywhere—Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and back again—but it hasn’t gone away.
