Bones and Fringe posted some of their best numbers of the season last night, and Bones was the only 8 o’clock show to gain audience members in its second half-hour. ABC’s new legal drama The Deep End was down 1 million viewers from its tepid premiere last week, and CBS’s pilot for Live for the Moment definitely didn’t, pulling in fewer than 5 million viewers — less than repeats of Big Bang Theory managed in the same slot last week.
