Even though it aired before Wednesday night's edition of American Idol, Fox's Bones scored its best ratings of the season, registering a solid 8.5 rating and a 13 share. It beat out a rerun of CBS's CSI:NY, which drew only a 5.7/9. NBC's struggling Friday Night Lights was overshadowed with a 4.0/6. At 9:00 p.m., American Idol was all she wrote. The one-hour show scored a whopping 19.0/27, translating to 31.45 million viewers, well above the numbers watching the other major networks combined.
