Fox has canceled Alcatraz and The Finder due to ratings not holding up after the fanfare and decent ratings of the mid-season launch of both dramas.

The J.J. Abrams thriller focused on the Alcatraz prison, which was allegedly shut down in 1963 due to unsafe conditions for its prisoners and guards. The show's premise is that both the prisoners and the guards disappeared in 1963 and have abruptly reappeared in modern-day San Francisco, where they are being tracked down by a government agency.

The Finder was a spin-off of Fox's other hit series Bones. The show will complete its run this week.
