FOX announced Friday (March 2) that it’s relocating “Bones” spin off “The Finder” to Friday nights at 8/7c before “Fringe” starting April 6 for its last three episodes of the season.
The final Thursday installment of the freshman series starring Geoff Stults, Maddie Hasson and Chicago native Michael Clarke Duncan will air on March 8. It will follow Walter as he searches for a teen girl who goes missing during an intense storm.
The network revealed earlier this week that the highly-anticipated Kiefer Sutherland drama “Touch” will get the post-“American Idol” time slot beginning on Thursday, March 22, while “Bones” has been shipped to Mondays, where it air the remainder of its seventh season at 8/7c starting April 2.
The first Friday episode of “The Finder” will feature guest appearances from rapper-actor 50 Cent as music mogul Big Glade and “Eureka” star Salli Richardson-Whitfield as his lawyer who also happens to be Leo’s ex.
The drama will take the place of Gordon Ramsay‘s fourth FOX reality series “Hotel Hell,” which will be pushed back to the summer. Much like “Kitchen Nightmares,” the show will follow the world renowned chef and a team of hospitality experts as they transform struggling lodging establishments throughout the U.S.
“Finder,” based on “The Locator” books by Richard Greener, centers on Walter Sherman, a former military policeman with the uncanny ability to find anything
Last Thursday’s episode drew 6.22 million total viewers and a 2.0 rating among adults 18-49 after “Idol,” placing third in the slot behind “Person of Interest” and “Grey’s Anatomy.”
