'Bones' to shut down after 12th episode

According to a source close to the show, Fox’s forensics follies drama Bones is shooting one more episode, their 12th, before shutting down due to the writers’ strike. No word on whether scripts were rearranged to create a cliffhanger, but the source did say to look for an “unexpected” ending.

    I may be hijacking this thread but I couldn’t figure out how to start a new thread. Anyway, I’m commenting on Mark Harris’ column. He brought forth details that I’ve been thinking about for some time regarding “new media.” However, the one thing he did not talk about in relation to residuals was the studios wanting to earn back all of their money before residuals kick in. This brought back the memory of the funky accounting situation 20 or so years ago. The studios kept saying they were losing money on $100+ million grossing films. No one could understand how that was happening, thus the impression of funky accounting. I think this may have been brought up at some point while the overall residual issue was still on the table. What kind of headaches would have been produced if the Guild required an independent auditor to monitor the accounting of all films to protect their members’ interests?
    Also, the networks put on a brave face stating that they can live without the writers for quite some time, etc. However, do they really believe that advertisers are going to pay Heros money for untested reality t.v. or news programs that were already taken off the air because of low ratings? Will the advertisers be willing to pay the same rates for reruns as they would for new programming? I think not. I read that some networks are already behind in their make-goods to the advertisers. The producers may be willing to wait the writers out, but I would be very surprised if the advertisers are willing to wait. I believe that once the advertisers start putting pressure on the networks to make good on their numbers or give refunds or whatever other remedy is appropriate, there’ll suddenly be a whole lot of movement on the producers’ side. I strongly believe that running “replacement programming” is going to affect their bottom line very quickly. And since money talks . . . ’nuff said.

    So if there shutting down after episode twelve does that mean that show is getting cancelled and if it is will they release the episodes that aired on dvd for season 3

    Just because it’s shut down, doesn’t mean the series is cancelled. They can’t keep it open if they don’t have any writers… no writers= no new scripts = no new filming for Bones. Duh.
