Fox Moves 'The Finder' to Fridays, Delays Episodes Until April
If you're looking for Fox's The Finder, you won't see it in its current timeslot for long.
After the Mar. 8 spring finale, the network announced that the freshman drama will move to Fridays. The Bones spin-off, which has posted lackluster retention from its strong American Idol lead-in, will take a month off the air, before resuming its season on April 6.
The news comes just days after Fox announced a midseason shuffle that would break up The Finder's run. It also marked a move for its parent series, which loses its Thursday slot to Kiefer Sutherland's Touch. Bones will now air Mondays at 8:00 p.m. when it returns.
Though stronger than Fox's other midseason drama, Alcatraz, the most recent episode of The Finder only pulled a 2.0 rating among adults 18-49 and 6.22 million viewers after American Idol.
The series was created by Bones showrunner Hart Hanson and stars Geoff Stults as a man with the gift to locate anything.
