Tonight at 8 on Fox/Ch. 5

ON Fox's new forensics drama "Bones," it's not enough that the girl hero be somewhat expert in her field, which is described here as "forensic anthropology."

Instead, this character simply has to be, at the very least, the most brilliant practitioner of forensic anthropology in the entire eastern sector of North America. And we know this because she says so.

As played by Emily Deschanel, however, it's hard to believe that someone so young (the actress is reportedly 27, so we can assume her character is too) is so uniquely talented that she's the only person the FBI thinks to call when someone finds a skeleton at the bottom of a shallow pond.

There might be one reason, though: Special agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz of "Angel") probably has the hots for her. And he's the one who repeatedly requests her services from the natural history museum where she works.

The title of the show, "Bones," is the nickname Agent Booth has adopted for this show's forensics femme, whose name is — get this — Dr. Temperance Brennan, a name that sounds like she just landed at Plymouth Rock.

Forensics anthropology is apparently a nascent pursuit that takes plain, old forensics a step farther. This new area of specialty implies a gift for interpreting aspects of a decomposed corpse's former life beyond the obvious cause-of-death issues.

In tonight's premiere of "Bones," for examples, super-sleuth Temperance concludes from the young victim's bones that she was probably a tennis player — a nifty conclusion, but one that has no bearing on the case.

It's a factoid that leads nowhere, which is kind of where "Bones" goes in its premiere episode.
