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.
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?
