Abstract: Let $ \Gamma\leq$SL$ _{2}(\mathbb{R})$ be a genus zero Fuchsian group of the first kind with $ \infty$ as a cusp, and let $ E_{2k}^{\Gamma}$ be the holomorphic Eisenstein series of weight $ 2k$ on $ \Gamma$ that is nonvanishing at $ \infty$ and vanishes at all the other cusps (provided that such an Eisenstein series exists). Under certain assumptions on $ \Gamma,$ and on a choice of a fundamental domain $ \mathcal{F}$, we prove that all but possibly $ c(\Gamma,\mathcal{F})$ of the nontrivial zeros of $ E_{2k}^{\Gamma}$ lie on a certain subset of $ \{z\in\mathfrak{H}\,:\,j_{\Gamma}(z)\in\mathbb{R}\}$. Here $ c(\Gamma,\mathcal{F})$ is a constant that does not depend on the weight, $ \mathfrak{H}$ is the upper half-plane, and $ j_{\Gamma}$ is the canonical hauptmodul for $ \Gamma.$
