FOX has renewed the hit drama series House and Bones for next season. House, picked up for its fourth season, stars two-time Golden Globe winner Hugh Laurie as Dr. Greg House, a brilliant and unconventional physician with a brutally honest demeanor.
Bones, picked up for its third season, stars Emily Deschanel as forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennan, who can read clues left behind in victims' bones, and David Boreanaz as FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth. These unlikely partners take on homicide cases involving human remains most forensic specialists can't handle.
House is the No. 1 drama on FOX as well as the No. 3 scripted series on all networks in Adults 18-49, and the No. 2 scripted series on all networks in Adults 18-34 and Teens. The series' Jan. 30 episode was the highest-rated scripted telecast of the 06/07 season on any network among Adults 18-49 and the highest-rated scripted telecast on any network in nearly a year.
In its most recent airing this past Tuesday, Feb. 13, House posted its highest rating ever among Adults 18-49 (tied with its telecast on 1/30/07); the show's highest-rated broadcast ever among Adults 18-34, Teens, Women 18-34 and Men 18-49/18-34; and its second-highest ever among Total Viewers (behind 1/30/07), while achieving the highest retention of its American Idol lead-in among Adults 18-49 (86%) and Adults 18-34 (93%).
Bones has also had an impressive run. Last week, for the second week in a row, the series posted its highest rating in nearly a year among Adults 18-49. Bones' Total Viewers number last week (12.6 Mil.) tied as its highest ever, and its highest ever without an American Idol lead-in.
