Following her departure from the show, she played the character Marni Fliss on the NBC series Committed, which only aired for 13 episodes before being cancelled due to low ratings. The show aired from January until March 2005. In mid-2005, she made a guest appearance as Alex Sinclair in The Dead Zone episode "Double Vision".

2005–07

Starting in the fall of 2005, Finnigan was the star of the CBS television drama series Close to Home, playing a deputy district attorney. In December 2005, while still starring in Close to Home, she made a second guest appearance as Alex Sinclair in the episode "A Very Dead Zone Christmas," on The Dead Zone. Close to Home aired for two seasons before it was cancelled in May 2007. In August 2007, Finnigan made one final guest appearance on The Dead Zone in the episode "Exile", just before the show ended in late 2007.

2008–present

Finnigan co-starred with her husband, actor Jonathan Silverman, in Beethoven's Big Break, the latest installment in the Beethoven film series; the film was released direct-to-DVD in late 2008. She also starred in Playing for Keeps, a CTV/Lifetime Original Movie, broadcast as What Color is Love? in the United States. Finnigan starred in the ABC sitcom Better with You, which was cancelled after only one season.

She co-starred alongside Jason Priestley in the Psych sixth-season episode, "Neil Simon's Lover's Retreat". She has also done Shadow Island Mysteries: The Last Christmas and Shadow Island Mysteries: Wedding for One.

In 2013, she starred on the TNT series Monday Mornings on which her real life husband Jonathan Silverman was a recurring cast member. The series was canceled after one season.

She also starred on the FX series Tyrant, which began on June 24, 2014. Tyrant aired its final episode on September 7, 2016, after three seasons.

Since July 12, 2017, Finnigan has starred as Grace Barrows, the Pentagon's press secretary, on the new CBS action drama Salvation.
