  • SmG

    PLL disappointed a lot of people (including me) with last season finale.

    I think the show has peaked last year, but this number is still good. I don’t think it is in any danger as long as its above 2 mil viewers.

  • jess

    i expected more for pll. they promoted it so much on abc family and other networks, they need to do the same for their other shows. but since the A reveal was a letdown and the premiere was kind of boring, i guess it’s expected.

  • Chris

    I can’t believe anybody has not even mentioned that these NBA Conference Finals games are outrating everything on the broadcast networks (yes, that includes AGT)! It’s a huge accomplishment for both ESPN and TNT, and a sign that the lockout did not hurt the league’s standing amongst its fanbase.

  • ABCFamilyFan

    Pretty Little Liars isn’t in any danger at all. Those numbers are still much higher than the #2 and #3 shows on the network. Like most of you, I did expect last night’s numbers to be much higher. They’ve been promoting the heck out of the show’s return for the last month, if not longer. I was expecting at least 3.5 million viewers, with an 18-49 rating of 1.3.

  • Chris in Kansas

    No ratings for What Not To Wear again? So probably under 1M viewers…not good news. :(

  • jess

    i do wonder how much pll will drop next week though. since it will and shows usually do after their premiere. last summer it dropped by about a million viewers.

  • roco

    Celtics vs Okc would be epic, Miami just needs to lose gracefully, and labum james want get a ring,.Rondo for MVP next year!

  • ABCFamilyFan

    @jess

    I’m wondering how much it will drop as well. Both Switched At Birth and Secret Life lost about a million viewers after their premiere episodes in January and March.

  • ny state of mind

    Any ratings for Kendra On Top last nite on We???

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    will utlimately see Jane By Design total viewers and adults 18-49 rating, but here’s a blurb from the ABC Family press release:


    “Jane By Design” (9:00-10:00 p.m.)
    The season 1B launch of “Jane By Design” stood as the series’ #2 telecast on record in Adults 18-34 (531,000/0.8 rating) and Women 18-34 (427,000/1.3 rating), out-performing its series launch in January 2012.

    • “Jane By Design” ranked as cable’s #1 scripted program in the hour in Women 18-34 and Females 12-34 (770,000/1.7 rating) and was the #1 TV telecast at 9 o’clock in Female Teens (342,000/2.9 rating).

    • “Jane By Design” surged over its season 1A average (1/3/12-3/6/12) across the board, including by 22% in Women 18-34 (427,000 vs. 351,000), by 14% in Women 18-49 (585,000 vs. 513,000) and by 13% in Females 12-34 (770,000 vs. 682,000).

  • sara

    I liked last nights episode of pll, but the numbers are disappointing.. not bad, just disappointing.. at least the totals were good, even though they don’t matter that much. Hopefully the show will stay above 1.0, although it dipped under last season. The show had at one point all10 twittertrends last night, so people are still interested, even though I must say that the storylines are predictable, with ali still being alive, and the new a.. anyone know when the lying games will be back? It was renewed, wasn’t it?

  • cimmer

    Nice for Rizzoli and Isles but not so great for Franklin and Bash, that’s a significant drop considering the lead in numbers. I’m kind of surprised.

  • Fleur

    I’m not sure they ever make the top 100 but I wonder, now that Dish Network moved AMC to the end of the line, have their numbers (along with Wetv and IFC) gone way down? I know I missed The Killing on Sunday because I thought they already dumped the network.

  • gb

    i think jbd viewers : 1.72 millions

  • ABCFamilyFan

    @sara

    The Lying Game will be back in September, I believe. The network gave the show a 6 month hiatus just as it was starting to gain a following. Just another idiotic move by ABC Family. When the show returns, I bet you half the audience won’t. They never should’ve given that show a 6 month hiatus!

  • gb

    @ABCFamilyFan
    No The Lying Game will be back in early january 2013
    Alexndra Chando tweeted : Early january

  • Dan S

    Good to see R&I & to a lesser degree F&B survived there move to Tues with decent ratings. Better yet can TNT replace F&B with Harry’s Law which is a far superior show ? Still venting

  • Rachel

    So I guess that’s good for JBD? I sure hope so. I think it’s one of the networks stronger quality shows along with Switched at Birth. I can’t with The Secret Life and PLL. The Lying Game’s not half bad though.

  • jess

    that’s so stupid. why not bring it back in the fall and pair it up with sab? that is such a long hiatus.

  • Mike

    No United Stats again. Wow.
