    According to CBS's Fall 2010 Schedule, Bones will have new rivals. Survivor is moved to Wednesdays, and Bones will now compete with Big Bang Theory, and $h*t My Dad Says (a new show) during the 8 & 8:30 pm Thursday time slot. The question: is this good or bad for Bones?

    I don't think it's that bad. Think about it. If you really like a show, I doubt you will DVR it just because there is another show at the same time, a show you've never watched.

    And it doesn't seem to me that Bones' fans are the kind of people that like TBBT. I believe the show is silly.

    Bones is way more interesting.

    I do too although not regularly. More like I'll watch if it's on but I don't watch or record it every week.


    I must admit, that I'm a little worried about Bones. I wouldn't want it to lose viewers going up against some pretty popular shows like 30 rock and The Big Bang Theory.

    30 Rock is perfect but it's only popular in Awards shows

    I wouldn't discount the power of The Big Bang Theory, plus I think that other show stars William Shatner based of his Twitter feeds. So you've got The Big Bang Theory whose characters love Star Trek followed by a show starring an actor from that show. That pairing is probably going to give Bones a run for their money or ratings in this case.

    What does this have to do with spoilers? Since when does what another network program against Bones qualify as a spoiler?

    No idea. I guess the discussion just originated there for some reason. It's probably a good idea to have another thread for it though since not everyone will read the Spoiler thread (namely the spoiler-free people) but might want to comment on the topic.

    I'd say that the competition for TBBT comes from NBC's comedy night that is situated on Thursdays as Bones is quite a different show. Before you say that you watch both TBBT and Bones, remember that you are a fan currently writing on a forum about a TV show so you are probably a more avid TV watcher than most aswell as someone with a more eclectic taste in TV. I'm thinking that it's TBBT that has some challenges ahead and not Bones.

    Oh, I know why you were asking, I was just being facetious...

    Thing is, in the age of DVR and TiVo, this shouldn't really matter. BUT, because of the archaic way the Nielsen ratings are compiled (RIP Jericho), it may have an effect, but my guess is it would be mostly on either TBBT or whatever it is NBC has on Thursdays (sorry, I just don't get the appeal of their current Thursday night lineup, although in fairness I've never seen an episode of 30 Rock, so it could be hilarious, for all I know). With Bones being an hour show, I think more people who watch bothwill DVR TBBT, and probably ignore the Shatner thing altogether.

    For me, if it's a choice between a 30-minute show and a 1-hour show starting at the same time I'll watch the 30 minute show Live and immediately watch the time-shifted 1-hour show afterwards.


    This way I'm only watching commercials for the first 30 minutes, after that I can watch the 1-hour show without any.



    I'm a regular fan of Big Bang Theory, so I'll probably DVR Bones instead.



    As for Nielson, I'm not a member of the group so I don't affect those numbers.
