  • Red Jane

    Good for White Collar… Covert Affairs struggling a bit more…

    Franklin & Bash – I would not expect if it gets cancelled soon…

  • Tom

    Also, Jane By Design is not looking too good, on one hand it is pretty much level with Secret Life and Bunheads but on the other hand it has hte biggest show on the network as its lead-in and can’t even keep half, know they are not extremely compatible but still, only chance this show has for renewal is the tax breaks.

    I said it before, i think last week, and i’ll say it again, it is either a both or Bunheads situation for renewal.

    Any idea anyone when the renewal/ cancellations for ABC Family will be announced??, lots of seasons will be over soon or in JBDs case are over.

    For the record, i hope JBD does get renewed as i like it, it is a nice little show and would love to see where it goes from the cliffhanger, which she’ll probably come up with some excuse for the boss and her nephew will prob learn the truth.

  • DM

    Well that was extremely poor planning on ABC Family’s part putting the Jane by Design season (possibly series) finale on the same night as the Olympics when it is already doing so poorly. But then again it didn’t do THAT much worse than normal. I definitely do not see it getting renewed.

    I can see why lifetime didn’t want to air a new episode of Dance Moms last night because of the competition but I hope it doesn’t drop too much when it comes back next week.

  • Curtis

    @disney rocks
    I really don’t know. I thought the show would get between 1.3-1.9 million viewers.
    Also Nick, can you post Scooby-Doo: Mystery Inc. and Total Drama Revenge of the Island please?

  • JNK

    The R&I ratings: is that still pretty decent for the Olympics?

  • panda22

    On the positive side, JBD beat Bunheads this week in overall viewers, but not by much. I’m *hoping* it gets a second season….but we won’t hear word until S@B airs, if it does get season 2 i think perhaps March 2013….?

    It seems very obvious now Baby Daddy + M&J will get renewed, the only lingering question is:

    JBD or Bunheads for renewal…..?. Or will ABC Family renew both?

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    Fred: The show Nearly 3 million viewers! Wow!

  • ggny

    I think Abc Family gives JBD another chance. ABC Family got to face fact that PPL is about as high as any show on the network will get now and JBD is about what the rest of theirs show are gonna get they are not gonna get PPL ratings from every show

  • pll fan

    ABC Family will announce its renewals in February, I believe. So, if both Bunheads and Jane By Design get renewed, what does the network cancel? Secret Life is the old vet, but continually does better or equal to both shows. I just don’t see how Jane By Design can get a renewal when its performed so poorly out of the networks two highest-rated shows, PLL and S@B. It doesn’t show any promise of growing.

  • elliottness

    Is Fred that r e t a r d that was on YouTube? Oh god shaking my head

  • panda22

    @ Tom….Baby Daddy will never detrone PLL!

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    That’s actually really good for Fred. @Disney Rocks Well because, while the show isn’t the best show on earth, it has potential to grow, and it’s cute. Looks like your prediction, (and others) about how the show was going to flop was false.

  • pll fan

    ABC Family already gave Jane By Design a second chance. This was it, and it still did awful.

  • DM

    The tax break is the only thing that gives JBD a fighting chance for a renewal. They could announce it at any time. The longer it takes the less likely it is. With JBD Bunheads an secret life all doing about the same I don’t think they could keep all 3. I’d imagine secret life being the old vet it is will get at least a short season renewal so it can end properly (like how they did with Greek). Bunheads has been more solid the entire season with more competition and a much weaker lead in. The network needs to pick up new shows and find more hits rather than renewing the flops because they’re “steady” PLL can only lead in one show and since they already renewed TLG with the same mediocre ratings it doesn’t look good for jbd

  • panda22

    ABC Family has pilot season from Sept. – December, in early Jan 2013 they view the pilots then in the third week of January they announce pickups. Currently two pilots are in the works.

    As for renewal announcement….it could come anytime…but i suspect they’ll wait until 4-5 episodes of S@B get aired to make a decisions.

    In January 2013 they’ll have PLL and TLG returning, most likely Bunheads….so they need a fourth show.

    Baby Daddy + M&J will stay Summer shows. Unless SLOTAT also returns January….but it usually runs from March right through the Summer.

  • Eac

    @ JNK I don’t think getting 4.438 million viewers and a demo of .8 for Rizzoli and Isles is bad at all. I think it is pretty good when you consider that Tuesday night not only had the Olympics but it was the womens gymnastic finals for the medals.

    I think TNT would be pretty happy with those numbers. Monday night cable shows probably did not get affected as much because of Tuesday night being the womens gymnastic finals. I beleive it was the best Olympics ratings since like 1996. So when you look at it that way R&I numbers look good.

  • Tom

    @pll fan. thanks for info.

    Just by ratings i think Jane prob get cancelled, but they would get a significant discount on a second season if they did indeed order one due to la tax scheme so that is why i think it at least has a decent shot at renewal.

    But still think it is a Both or Bunheads situation.

    And the way they air their shows, they don’t really need to cancel any shows, what do they have, six hour long dramas at roughly 22 a piece per season. Even if they only air 44 weeks of the year,that is 4 hours a week. four hours six shows 22 episodes works out at having six shows air 22 episodes and still technically have space for two more to air 22 as well.

    Not counting M&J and Baby Daddy as they won’t move from Wednesday and of course not counting the money they’d need to spend on the shows but from timetable standpoint they could easily do it.

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    I didn’t like Tuesdays episode of PLL. It wasn’t as interesting as the others. When PLL comes back In January 2013, will they move it back to Monday? It will also be season 3B, correct?

  • DM

    Yes the January 2013 season wi be 3b. They won’t announce for a while what the January lineup will be. Ic could go back to Monday but if they decide to bring secretive 5b back in January they might keep it on Tuesday. Last year they announced the winter schedule in November

  • panda22

    @ Tom…ABCF on do Wednesdays in the Summer, they need 4hrs of programming for Mon/Tues. Regarding the JBD tax break…the unknown is how many eoisodes they NEEd to prodcue to get all the money?

    As in Teen Wolf got 10.4m for a guaranteed 24 episodes shooting in California. JBD has only aired 8 with the tax break….so, do they need to produce 20 or 22 episodes to get all the money?

    As said, the taz break could save Jane for another 10-12 episodes, just so they get all the money, i’m sure there is a clause if they procude less then the agreed amount of episodes….they get nothing?
