BubbleWatch: FOX's 'The Finder'
SHOW: "The Finder"
IN ITS FAVOR: The "Bones" semi-spinoff has some of that "Bones" charm and FOX has always beens supportive of "Bones."
AGAINST IT: Despite an "American Idol" lead-in, "The Finder" was battered on Thursdays at 8 p.m. FOX didn't help things by pulling "The Finder" for random hiatuses and then eventually shifting the show to Fridays. While "The Finder" seemed to get bumps when its Thursday competition was in repeats, the Geoff Stults drama couldn't even give FOX any growth in its less-glutted Friday slot.
OUR TOTALLY UNINFORMED GUESS: FOX wanted "The Finder" to succeed, but it hasn't found an audience. Even a courtesy renewal for creator Hart Hanson seems unlikely.
