Those of you who are looking forward to the return of Bones may have to adjust your schedules a little bit. When Bones season 7 returns this April, it won't be airing on Thursdays anymore. On what day will we be able to find Bones on the schedule? Keep reading to find out.
FOX has announced that, starting on April 2, 2012, Bones
will move to a new timeslot on Mondays at 8pm.
This move leaves the old Bones
timeslot for FOX's new Kiefer Sutherland series, Touch
(starting on Thursday, March 22). Meanwhile, the final episodes of House
season 8 will follow Bones
at 9pm on Mondays. The season finale of House
is now scheduled for Monday, May 21, when a special retrospective episode of House
will preempt Bones
at 8pm before the House
series finale at 9pm. Click here for more on the return of Bones season 7 in April
The April 2 Bones
episode will find Booth and Brennan arguing over plans in the last moments before their daughter's birth (which will take place at some currently unknown point in the spring episodes of Bones
season 7). At the same time, the entire Jeffersonian team will be working to solve a case in which decomposing bodies are found in a sewer. These bodies have the added problem of jamming up the plumbing lines for an entire neighborhood.How many Bones season 7 episodes will we get to see? Click here to find out
It's hard to say whether or not this move will help or hurt Bones
. But it's kind of a scary move for the FOX show.
The loss of the big American Idol
lead-in on Thursdays can't be good, even if moving to Mondays gets Bones
out of the crowded and competitive Thursday-night TV line-up. In its new Monday timeslot, Bones will compete with CBS comedies (How I Met Your Mother
and 2 Broke Girls
), Dancing with the Stars
on ABC, and The Voice
Considering the healthy ratings of all of these programs, Bones
may have its Monday-night work cut out for it.

timeslot? Do you think it will help the rest of Bones
season 7? Will Monday night hurt Bones
