Thursday ratings: 'Survivor,' 'Bones' battle it out

Posted on

Season premieres brought some big numbers last night: Bones had its highest-rated premiere ever, and Survivor posted high ratings as well. NBC’s comedy line-up fared decently, with The Office and Community bringing in solid audiences, while Parks sort of struggled. The Vampire Diaries slipped from its premiere but still snagged an impressive 3.7 million, but Fringe dropped much of its lead-in audience and lost over 700,000 viewers in its second half-hour.
