Thursday Ratings: Bones Bests CSI, Deep End Sinks

Last night’s programming ended with interesting results. Despite non-stop promotions, ABC’s freshman series The Deep End struggled to find an audience with the 18-49s during its hour. Meanwhile, CBS had some good and bad news. On the plus side, repeats of The Big Bang Theory did better than original comedies on NBC. On the negative side, Bones actually beat CSI in the demos.
