Jeff Probst's special and possible backdoor pilot " Live for the Moment " looked like anything but a survivor Thursday, generating the lowest numbers in the 18-49 demo of any primetime show on an unusual night in the ratings. Fox, which broadcast firstrun episodes of " Bones " and " Fringe " against what was mostly a mix of reruns and unproven shows on ABC, NBC and CBS, had its best Thursday in a season that has seen the network make significant inroads on the night. Fox's Thursday average is up 25% in 18-49 and 65% in total viewers compared with the same weeks last season. The CW 's "Vampire Diaries" (1.8 rating/5 share in 18-49, 3.8 million viewers overall) also performed well, finishing second at 8 p.m. in 18-49 and first among females 12-34 and teens. Airing at 8 p.m.," Bones " (3.6/11, 12.4 million) was the demo's winner Thursday, posting its highest ratings since 2007, while "Fringe" (3.0/8, 8.9 million) tied its best 18-49 numbers of the season. Thanks to 10 p.m. timeslot winner " The Mentalist " (2.3/6, 11.0 million), CBS finished second to Fox on the night. " CSI " (2.0/5, 9.1 million) was second at 9 p.m., but 8 p.m. entry "Moment" (1.1/3, 4.7 million), in what is normally the dominant slot of "Survivor," struggled in virtually every demo. Its best showing was a third-place finish among viewers 50 and older. ABC's " The Deep End " (1.7/5, 6.0 million) tapered further from its sluggish premiere a week ago, perhaps not helped by the fact that " Grey's Anatomy " (1.5/4, 5.3 million) and " Private Practice " (1.2/3, 4.3 million) were repeats. "Deep End" did see improvement among men. NBC broadcast all reruns in its Thursday comedy block: " Community " (1.6/5, 4.2 million), " Parks & Recreation " (1.6/4, 3.7 million), " The Office " (2.1/6, 4.6 million) and " 30 Rock " (1.7/5, 3.9 million). " The Jay Leno Show " (1.2/3, 4.3 million) had a sliver of an overall viewer advantage over " Private Practice ." The CW's " Supernatural " (1.2/3, 2.6 million) lost a chunk of its "Vampire" leadin at 9 p.m., finishing fifth in that slot. Preliminary 18-49 averages for the night: Fox 3.3/9, CBS 1.8/5, Univision 1.8/5, ABC 1.5/4, NBC 1.5/4, CW 1.5/4, In total viewers: Fox 10.6 million, CBS 8.3 million, ABC 5.2 million, Univision 4.3 million, NBC 4.1 million, CW 3.1 million.

Bones is all new on February 4 and I think it's the final episode before the show goes on hiatus for a few weeks for the Olympics. It's a religious episode, so you know Booth's Catholic-ness will come into play. Check out a promo below for the episode and then go view the promo photos we previously posted.

After last week's big pregnancy bomb, Bones will reveal yet another startling news as Booth's brother, Jared, (guest star Brendan Fehr) returns from his travels in the 13th episode of the fifth season entitled "The Dentist in the Ditch." Meanwhile, this week's case alone already involves a lot of surprises. Just like any other Bones episode, tonight's installment kicks off with the discovery of human remains only this time it's in the trenches of an old Civil War reenactment site. Brennan and Booth are called to the case and Brennan quickly identifies that the bones belong to a present-day local dentist named Dan Pinard. Brennan and Booth question Chris Fife (Cameron Bender), the disgruntled ex-boyfriend of a dentist whose skeleton was found buried at a Civil War reenactment site as one of the suspects in the murder case. At the same time, Hodgins and lab intern Vincent Nigel-Murray (guest star Ryan Cartwright) work persistently to clean the bones of a stubborn clay residue which is preventing the team from determining a cause of death.

Rather than remain bitter that our invitation to yesterday's BONES Milestone 100th Episode Celebration so clearly got lost in the mail (Not to mention the fact that after almost four years of blogging we haven't earned enough for our very own private jet!) this TV Addict thought we'd take the high road by sharing with you a few fantastic behind-the-scenes photos from inside the party.

Sweets has always played an important part in the Booth-Brennan saga on Bones. He first took interest in them as their therapist and then later made them subjects of his book, which basically concludes that Booth and Brennan are in love with each other. He also intervened just was Booth was about to tell Brennan that he's in love with her, believing that Booth's attraction was just the result of the alternate world he experienced during his coma. When Zap2it.com asked if fans are giving Sweets' portrayer, John Francis Daley, a difficult time for being the one responsible for putting off Brennan and Booth's relationship, Daley says "Absolutely. Because everyone can clearly see the sparks between the two of them. And it is frustrating for my character to put a wrench in those gears. But I think the truth [of Booth's feelings] will eventually prevail. Who knows, maybe if they had told each other that they loved each other back then, it wouldn't have worked."

MTV execs, start pumping those fists: Jersey Shore scored record-breaking ratings in the final episode of its first (and we hope not only) season. 4.8 million viewers tuned in Thursday, a 30 percent increase over last week's previous series-high ratings. The reunion special immediately following the finale brought in an additional 4 million viewers. Shore debuted in December to 1.3 million viewers and continued to grow each week. On ABC, meanwhile, new series The Deep End brought in 7 million viewers, down 25 percent from FlashForward in the same time slot. Not all was lost for the network, though. Grey's Anatomy pulled in 12.6 million viewers, and Private Practice followed with 9.7 million viewers. Even though Bones (11.9 million) had less viewers than CSI (14.2 million), the Fox series beat out the CBS show for the first time ever in the adults 18-to-49 demographic.
