News for The Finder

'Finder' star returns to Fox on 'Ben and Kate'... and he's wearing a straw

Stults is returning to TV on Fox’s freshman comedy  Ben & Kate , so we shouldn’t be surprised there’s a little craziness involved. (Or  a lot , depending on your assessment of the exclusive photo below.) The actor, who starred along with the  late Michael Clarke Duncan  in the  Bones  spin-off  The Finder , makes his debut as a single father who catches Kate’s eye in the Oct. 30 episode, and he will appear on a recurring basis on the show, which was recently picked up for a  full season . http://insidetv.ew.com/2012/10/24/finder-ben-and-kate/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+ew%2Fhollywoodinsider+%28Entertainment+Weekly%2FEW.com%27s%3A+Hollywood+Insider%29

The Finder Girl Gets Grimm

One of the biggest finds during The Finder 's brief run on Fox was child actress Maddie Hasson , who played delinquent gypsy girl, Willa.

TV Ratings: 'Fringe' finale rises while CBS heavy hitters slide

"Fringe" has been picked up for a fifth and final season, so the ratings are of little consequence to fans at this point -- but you'll still be glad to hear that Friday night's Season 4 finale ratings were slightly better than the week before. Even "The Finder," which was canceled by FOX this week, saw a small ratings boost. (Perhaps because by now, everyone's already seen "The Avengers"?)Per usual, "Undercover Boss," "Blue Bloods" and "CSI: NY" helped CBS secure yet another win on Friday, though all three shows were slightly down from last week.CBS won the night with an average of 8.4 million viewers with 5.5 ratings/10 share in households. It easily beat second place ABC, (4.9 million 3.3/6) and third place NBC (3.6 million, 3.1/6). Finally, FOX trailed at 3.6 million viewers (2.3/4) with The CW in last place with 1.5 million (1.0/2).In the 18-49 demographic, ABC won the night (1.5) followed by... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/05/tv-ratings-fringe-finale-rises-while-cbs-heavy-hitters-slide.html

Quartet of Shows Canceled by FOX: Alcatraz, The Finder, Breaking In & I Hate My Teenage Daughter

The new dramas  Alcatraz  and  The Finder  as well as the ‘brought-back-from-the-dead’ comedy Breaking In  and the new, short-lived laugher  I Hate My Teenage Daughter  have all been canceled by FOX. With the annual  network upfront presentations less than a week away, the major (and cable) networks are pulling no punches with their programming; and this is just one example of what is yet to come. As most viewers know, ‘Alcatraz’ was the much buzzed-about new series from J.J. Abrams set on the legendary prison in San Francisco while ‘The Finder’ was the anticipated spin-off of popular FOX drama ‘ Bones ’. Both shows debuted mid-season with decent ratings, but neither show could hold onto asatisfactory  percentage of viewers to warrant renewals.
