On a Monday night when CBS took a knee, Fox’s Bones and ABC’s Castle were the only shows to enjoy week-to-week gains. Two freshman dramas, meanwhile, hit series lows.
Opening Fox’s night, Bones drew 7 million total viewers and a 2.0 rating, steady in audience and ticking up a tenth in the demo. The Following followed with 6.5 mil/2.2, slipping a tenth to a season low.
