Ratings: 'Survivor' beats 'Bones' on Thursday

Two popular shows, Survivor and Bones, went head-to-head for the first time last night, and the seasoned reality show won the battle. CBS’ Survivor managed to maintain most of its season premiere numbers, while Fox’s Bones declined 12 percent from its Feb. 5 time slot debut. Elsewhere, ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy managed to stay on its steady incline, while Private Practice, which no longer had its Grey’s crossover to rely on, was down 20 percent. Hell’s Kitchen also lost 14 percent of its viewers from its last new episode on Feb. 6 – and almost half of its viewers from its Jan. 30 premiere.
