Typical! I've noticed that the loadings on the 63/122 seem to change regularly, usually depending on who's first (and lately it seems to be Avon in-front).

Instead of them extending the 63 to Merton Road (where most 63s seem to lay-over), they could have extended it to Hugh Baird College (via Oriel Road Station inbound and Stanley Road outbound) where it may have gained extra custom from the college and various offices (etc...) around there.

As for the evening times, there still appears to be way too much time between timing points. They could have either got it down to three buses of a night or added various destinations to the route (and renumbered it to 63A, like it should be anyway as the route is different), such as Waterloo Station and the inside of Aintree Station (giving these places a bus along the old 53A route again). How long they'll be able to keep it paying for itself of a night with so much lay-over time in Bootle will be the next question...
