The Finder: Premiere Ratings

The Finder premiere ratingsStarring Geoff Stults, Maddie Hasson, Mercedes Masohn and Michael Clarke Duncan, The Finder debuted last night on FOX. It wasn’t a very good start for the Bones spin-off.

Per the fast affiliate ratings, the premiere registered a 1.6 in the 18-49 demographic and 5.5 million viewers. It lost some viewers between the first and half hours but the erosion wasn’t big.

On the negative side however, The Finder lost 32% in the demo from its Bones lead-in. That’s not positive and FOX viewers seemed to make a conscious decision to change the channel once Bones was over. The Finder was in a distant fourth place in the the 9pm timeslot.

When compared with FOX’s other scripted series this season, The Finder ranks 13th out of 14 shows. It beats Fringe but is topped by everything else, even now-cancelled Allen Gregory.

Next week, The Finder will get big lead-in support from American Idol. It’ll be interesting to see if that affects the ratings in a positive way or just seals its fate.

What do you think? Did you watch The Finder on FOX? Will you keep watching or do you think it should be cancelled?
