With the return of fresh episodes and new shows, the midseason death watch has started and a number of shows are already at risk for an early demise, reports EW.com’s Inside TV blog.
One of those shows is "The Finder," the "Bones" spinoff on Fox that has earned disappointing ratings with 6 million viewers, the story notes. "’The Finder’ needs to locate an audience soon," the article points out.
CBS’s "A Gifted Man" may not have much of a chance for a second season, with about 8.2 million viewers on average, the story adds. "We’re not feeling upbeat about its chances for a second season, no matter how hot Patrick Wilson is," the piece notes.
While ABC says it hasn’t made a decision on "Pan Am," it’s not looking good with 7.3 million viewers, the story adds. "Don’t expect Pan Am to make a return trip," the piece reports.
On NBC, one show that might not have a future is "Rock Center with Brian Williams," which has averaged 4.2 million viewers, the story says. "Rock bottom with Brian Williams. This should go quietly into the night," the article notes.
