      1. Bones is still very watchable despite the fact the leads got married. The ratings aren’t helped by 7 playing around with timeslots, interchanging between double and single episodes, not fast tracking, airing too late and it not being available on catch up. I suspect viewers have grown tired and chasing it around the schedule in terms of both nights, timeslots and the amount of episodes airing and when they’ve possibly gone to plus7 and seen no catch up they’ve given up.

        I wonder how the blacklist will go tonight. I don’t watch it myself but that show has been really delayed. I doubt it will get the ratings like when it was fast tracked.

      1. It’s been cancelled in the US-won’t affect the series 9 is showing but they’re not going to bother with much effort promoting or sticking with it if ratings are poor.
