FOX to Bring Bones and Family Guy Together

David BoreanazStewie Griffin

In what could be one of the strangest cross-promotions FOX has ever tried (ponder the weight of that statement a moment), the night time drama Bones will soon feature an animated character from the ribald comedy . That’s right, FOX fans: David Boreanaz and Stewie Griffin will soon share screen time.

Evidently, Boreanaz’s character will suffer hallucination-generating health problems during episodes of which will air in May. He’ll end up in Quahog, Rhode Island, home to the animated Griffin family. “This is going to sound odd,” began executive producer Stephen Nathan, “but it is a completely believable event.”

He’s right…that does sound odd. And extremely, wholly unlikely.

Thursday Ratings: ER Still Fourth Despite Clooney

George Clooney might be able to schedule meetings with high-ranking politicians, but he can’t save a whole network. Even though ER saw its best audience in two years, NBC only tied for third in the demos and placed fourth with the viewers last night. (The winner in both categories was CBS.)

William Petersen’s departure from CSI brought the show’s numbers back to Earth. As a result, the Alphabet network had the best demos of the evening. Unfortunately, ABC’s lucky streak probably won’t last long. We’re now just weeks away from the premiere of Survivor: Tocantins.

Wednesday Ratings: Secret Millionaire Not So Secret Anymore

There’s nothing viewers like more than watching people give out money. Yesterday, FOX’s Secret Millionaire built upon last week’s numbers and won its hour in the demos. CBS, though, was the top network in both categories this Wednesday.

Wednesday Ratings: Pushing Daisies Clinging to Life

As hard as it is for me to admit, it looks like my darling Pushing Daisies will soon be pushed out the door. Despite an Obama bump for its last outing, the show couldn’t maintain the audience. Yesterday’s episode even performed lower than the last unassisted show. CBS had a good evening though. Season high numbers for the two comedies gave the network wins in both categories last night.
