Fox renews Bones and House

All fans of that grouchy, edgy Dr. House can breathe easy. Fox has renewed House for a fourth season.

House is notching strong ratings in its third season, averaging 24 million viewers a week. House has benefitted from its American Idol lead-in this season.

Fox also renewed crime drama Bones. The show has enjoyed a ratings bump in its second season, partly because of airing before Idol and partly because of sassy new TV ads that suggest the show is exciting.

I'm a big fan of Bones, but I haven't seen House yet. I keep hearing good things though. Is it a show that you can just hop right into, or should I start from the beginning with DVD's?

Oh, that's great! I'm not into Bones, but I LOVE House! We're only in season 2 in Germany, but I never miss it! Just last night I watched the latest episode and I said to myself once again what an amazing character this doctor is

Congratulations to both House and Bones! I personally love House and faithfully watch it almost every week. I'm so glad more viewers are finding both shows this season even though I've never watched Bones.

It "suggests" the show is exciting? It is exciting, not to mention it's quality television.

Both of these shows are excellent entertainment.

The character of House is unique among all the world's MD's. David Boreanus has proven he still has star quality after Buffy and Angel!

I'm delighted that both House and Bones are being renewed for next fall. HOWEVER, I get really tired of House being pre-empted so often for the World Series, American Idol, etc. Couldn't it be put in a time slot where it wouldn't have weeks without new episodes? Otherwise, I'm delighted as I'm a

devoted fan of House as well as Bones.

I thrilled to hear House will be back. I'm not an avid viewer of Bones, I enjoy it and know it does have it's audience.

I just wish Idol didn't get credit if any shows do well on Fox. House has been a critical success since it started and has won many awards before it's "American Idol lead-in". House has aired at the same day and time from the beginning.

And I agree with the earlier poster about the last statement by the News author being more of a editorial comment than an indifferent News comment.

If you wanna make comments like that, do it in reviews, News is supposed to be objective. Jack@ss

House is awesome. Since it has been on tv we have never missed one show. Bones on the other had, hmmm never seen it.

I have never seen Bones, but I know that House is a good show.

No surprise there, though Bones is looking tired. This roller coaster romance between Bones and her partner is tiring. One week they are moving toward each other, the next week they are drifting way. Watching their relationship is about as exciting as watching yo-yo.

Fox played it safe with House and Cutty. The show is in its third year before developing a romantic relationship between them.

Not digging on the rude Bones comments:



"The show has enjoyed a ratings bump in its second season, partly because of airing before Idol and partly because of sassy new TV ads that suggest the show is exciting." TV.com; thats not nice.

Great news! I've been hooked on both shows since they started. Now if only FOX would put them back to back, like they used to be, I'd be a very happy viewer.

Thank you Fox as we get Bones in Ireland and are just starting the second season thank you! Not that we are starved for good shows but Bones is my number 1 don't miss!

As a fan of both shows, I think this is great news though I think it was just a formality at this point. As well as both shows have done, it would have surprising if they didn't get renewed.
