    Decent numbers for Jane By Design. I hope those numbers stay steady. I was hoping having Pretty Little Liars as a lead-in would boost ratings, but it appears that it didn’t help it at all.

  • Rachel

    Well JBD & PLL are kinda a mismatched combo. Switched at Birth was a better pairing but it left much to be desired as a lead-in.

  • Tiera

    To be honest I only watched the JBD pilot and I was not that impressed with it. It all seemed so cliche. I didn’t keep watching because Dance Moms started the following week at the same time (which it is again this season). It seems like a very odd combo paired with PLL. The final season of Greek was paired with PLL and it was less than helpful with those ratings. Hopefully it gives JBD better results. It makes more sense when they have it with a show of similar nature like TLG.

  • ABCFamilyFan

    Pretty Little Liars didn’t help The Lying Game that much. Everybody thought pairing those 2 up in the winter would significantly boost The Lying Game’s ratings, but it didn’t. The Lying Game averaged about 1.3-1.4 million viewers when it was paired with the Pretty Little Liars.

  • Sean

    Any Numbers for “Level Up” on Cartoon Network at 8:00PM

  • Rachel

    @ABCFamily
    True. The Lying Game’s 1b finale actually got less viewers than the 1a finale. And 1a didn’t even have a lead-in!

    If I were ABC Family I would’ve kept PLL and TLG together. Moved JBD behind TSLOAT. Took a risk and aired Switched and Bunheads together in the fall.

  • Dillan

    Not great for JBD.

    I agree with everything being said about TLG. ABC Family waited too late to renew the show and a 10 month hiatus will lose a lot of viewers.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    LEVEL UP = 1.893M viewers and a 0.2 A18-49 rtg.

  • A

    How did Kendra on Top on WE do?

    Another flop by the looks of it.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    @A, didn’t see any #s for WE tv.

  • Bryan

    Any ratings for “Total Drama: Revenge of the Island” at 7:30pm on Cartoon Network? Thanks! :)

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    @Bryan: no. If shows outside of primetime aren’t in the top 100 we don’t see them the next day unless there is a press release.

  • Melanie

    Great numbers for the NBA, but I am disappointed the Heat lost. C’mon guys, let’s get games 6 & 7!! I also enjoyed the RHOC. Great episode last night.

  • rob60990

    ABC Family didn’t kill Make it or Break it and they are not killing the Lying Game with the huge break. Make it or Break it never gained its own audience and lived off Secret Life. Now with Secret Life barely holding on, it really showed Make it or Break it never had its own audience and deserved cancellation. As for the Lying Game, the show regularly lost half of Pretty Little Liars lead-in. Its absolute ratings didn’t warrant another season. I don’t know why ABC Family keeps trying to make this show happen when its not.

    Also, there are lots of cable shows that go on very long breaks. Just look at True Blood which only airs from June-September every year yet the audience always comes back to it.

  • Melanie

    Also good numbers for The Game, Rizzoli &Isles and I am happy that SVU does well even in repeats.

  • Nadine

    I am very glad Franklin & Bash is doing so badly. It’s an incredibly stupid show.

  • Nadine

    GO RONDO!!!!

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    @Nadine: hate to break this to you but F&B got renewed with worse numbers and it is UP Y/Y for its premiere.

  • J

    Celtics all day

  • Ray

    Man, I wish they had numbers for Total Drama: Revenge of the Island. If Level Up scored its highest ratings since its series premiere in January, then Total Drama: Revenge of the Island had to have done really good as a lead in.
