Ratings: FOX's "Bones" Wins
Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz successfully returned to FOX Wednesdays last night with a London-based big-budgeted 4th season opener of "Bones" helping the network win the night among adults 18-49.
The 2-hour episode scored an average of 9.69 million viewers, peaking with 10.22 million viewers in the second hour.
Elsewhere, The CW launched a new cycle of its hit reality contest "America's Next Top Model" featuring a transgendered contestant. The 2-hour season premiere scored 3.48 million viewers, down from 3.80 million who tuned into the February 20 premiere of the previous cycle.
The audience erosion is more visible in comparison with the launch of the fall 2007 cycle - September 19, 2007 premiere generated 5.15 million viewers.
