FOX had a good showing on Thursday because of a crossover between Bones and Sleepy Hollow. It didn't appear to help Bones, but Sleepy Hollow spiked three tenths week to week. This is probably a blip, and the stunt won't affect ratings in the long terms. Bones has been performing well so far, but The Big Bang Theory returns this week, which could be a problem.

FOX shows on Tuesday came back from their World Series break with more or less the same numbers, but The Grinder dropped to a nasty 0.8. With FOX's average so low, Scream Queens and Grandfathered are in the bubble range. According to some numbers from RJK @Spotted Ratings, Scream Queens has received big C3 bump from its live numbers. C3 numbers are the ones that matter, the ones that advertisers use to determine ad rates, so an increase combined with being younger skewing puts Scream Queens at a better relative standing than in Live numbers.
