On the TV Guide it says tonight's episode of Bones is the final - was that just a mistake?! Cos the last ep is mean to be The Woman In Limbo, which I am absolutely dying to see!
Tonight is The Graft In The Girl isn't it?!
Can someone clarify for me pls?

The Woman in Limbo is the Christmas ep isn't it? If so we've had that one already. Gotta love Channel 7 and their playing things out of order.

According to the post below this we still have two episodes? Also, i have TV Week for next week and it says The Girl in the Fridge will be on. So it seems like it's a mistake in your guide :)

Well shit. Unless they're skipping a week.. Hopefully? It seems strange that they wouldn't show the full season but it also seems strange that the guide would say it's the final.

Seriously, i would LOVE to know why the networks insist on screwing around like this. They moan about shows having poor viewing numbers but they mess it up for themselves. Gah.

The Graft In The Girl has, but not The Woman In Limbo, which is the actual final for the season.
Yeah I know what you mean bout screwin us around. Of course numbers are gonna go down, we don't know when the shows on or not. Even on the highlights for this weeks ep after last weeks didn't say this was the final.

The last two episodes of season 1 - 1.21 "Soldier on the Grave" and 1.22 "The Woman In Limbo" - aren't going to be shown anytime soon. That's because, officially, the ratings season has ended and all the channels tend to end their shows at the end of the ratings season. It doesn't seem to matter to them that Bones still has two episodes left in the season!

You should have noticed that almost every show on every channel has finished and is being replaced by "summer shows" - meaning, shows that the networks tell us can only be put on during the non-ratings period or late at night, because they don't rate. Even though Channel 7 are being absolute morons in taking Bones off the air before it's finished, the reason is because it's a damn good show that does actually rate well, and they never put shows that rate well on over the summer.

Whilst it sucks for us that Channel 7 isn't going to be showing us the final two episodes - and the REAL finale - overall, it's a good thing in the overall scheme of things that Channel 7 sees Bones as one of their best shows that rates extremely well, meaning that they'll put it back on during peak-ratings season, on a good day, with a good primetime timeslot.

And anyway, Channel 7 may be cheating us out of our last two episodes, but JB Hi-Fi has season 1 of Bones listed as coming out on DVD January 10th 2007. It's a hell of a lot better than waiting until the second half of next year for more Bones! (And of course, there's special features on the DVD's!)

So it's good thing then?! *wink*
Yeah I guess it is a good thing, cos it means ratings are up - AS THEY SHOULD BE!
Oh well will just have to put up with crappy channel 7 I guess then.

Yep! In the overall scheme of things, it's a very good thing! It also might mean that Channel 7 could bring Bones back in the first half of the ratings season, instead of the second half!
