Thursday ratings: 'Bones' bests 'FlashForward'

Posted on

Survivor ruled the 8 o’clock hour, but Bones pulled off a decisive win against FlashForward this week, topping the freshman drama by over 1 million viewers and winning in the 18-49 demographic as Forward dropped to its lowest ratings yet. CBS’s cross-over sweeps stunt worked for CSI, which posted its best numbers of the season; the 9:00 slot still proved tough for Fringe, which is losing much of its lead-in. NBC comedies were relatively stable, as was the 10:00 hour.
