David Boreanaz - ’Bones’ Tv Show - FOX Sets Start Date : September 20, 2005

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) — FOX has filled in a new piece of its fall 2005 launch puzzle as the network confirmed over the weekend "Bones" will launch on Tuesday, September 20 at 8:00/7:00c.

The news, which was posted on the show’s official web site, likely means lead-out "House" will kick off its second season that same night at 9:00/8:00c.

The September 20 date however should prove troublesome for building a consistent audience for "Bones" as Tuesday, October 4 marks the start of FOX’s Major League Baseball playoff coverage with games potentially scheduled every Tuesday for the month of October - October 4 (Division Series, Game 1), October 11 (ALCS, Game 1), October 18 (ALCS, Game 6 - if necessary) and October 25 (World Series, Game 3) - meaning the series could be pre-empted for a month after just two weeks on the air.

In any case, "Bones" is just the second of FOX’s fall newcomers with a start date, the other being "Prison Break" on Monday, August 29.

Update (6:20 p.m.): FOX has since changed its web site with the words "Series Premiere This Fall" now replacing the previous "Series Premiere Tuesday, September 20 at 8:00/7:00c" text.
