Yes, it does easily!

The problem could be in your EPS file. Can you convert it to PDF on the 
command line with Apple's 'distiller' pstopdf? If this fails, it will 
fail for TeXniscope too. TeXniscope is a PDF viewer. Before it starts 
to display anything, it needs to convert DVI to PDF with dvipfmx. Any 
PDF non-compliant graphics inclusions needs to be converted to a PDF 
compliant format, EPS to PDF. This is either done by pstopdf or by the 
PostScript distiller in TeXniscope Preferences under Paths. When the 
'Path to utilities' contains /usr/local/bin, the place where 
Ghsotscript gets installed from the i-Package, you might just fill in 
ps2pdf. Try it with this setting! Ghostscript can convert some more EPS 
files than pstopdf.
