  • Dillan

    Big rise for Teen Mom in the demo!

  • Jeremy

    that family guy repeat timeslot is great! Always at the top!

  • salaciouscrumb

    Almost 1 million for chad johnsons exit.

  • DM

    That’s quite the comeback for Teen Mom

  • Vince

    Solid White Collar again, even with week off. Great episode as well.

  • rob60990

    0.9 isn’t bad for Franklin & Bash though the real indicator is how its doing in 25-54 demo that TnT targets. This show seems to skew a lot younger than Rizzoli & Isles.

  • rob60990

    Not bad for PLL. It should go back up the next 2 weeks with the season coming to a close.

  • Richard Steven Hack

    I wasn’t looking forward to the White Collar episode plot-wise, but the appearance of Rebecca Mader made the episode much more interesting.

    All in all, though, I think the season’s main story arc about finding out about Neal’s dad is not as interesting as previous season arcs. There’s no actual conflict with another character, so far at least. They need to ramp it up.

  • iCarly

    Go Nickelodeon!

  • Vince

    Forgot to add, WTH, Covert cannot add to White Collar leaad in? Crazy!

  • TeenMom

    Watching Amber disintegrate into self-absorbed delusional madness is fascinating and horrifying. The people of Anderson Indiana are lucky to have survived her night on the road in her new Lincoln while she was multi-tasking while driving – crying, wiping her eyes, talking on the phone, and covering her face.

  • kesovic

    white collar gets always more amazing, covert affairs less interesting; WWT is lovely if you ask me

  • John A

    Anyone else getting bored off PLL? Im glad its doing well for ABC Family though. The network is alot like CW these days it desperatley needs a hit.

  • Jared

    @John A

    PLL does have an extremely loyal following..but ABC FAMILY will run this series into the ground just like Secret Life..but your right..the network does need a hit desperately..not sure how long they can keep it going until the premise gets old and tired.

  • Kissan

    @John A

    Actually I’m a little bored of PLL. If we don’t find out who the REAL “A” is by the end of this season, I’m not watchin anymore. It’s gotten really boring to me. I also think Paige and Nate killed Maya. Anyone else agree?

  • nikki

    Go pll! And awesome for white collar. And to the person who said abcfamily is like the cw, your totally off. The cw sucks it has no good shows. They kill all the good ones, and keep adding bad ones. I see it falling so far that it eventually doesn’t exist anymore. Abcfamily kicks cws ass in ratings all the time. Its a better network with better shows. Not at all like the cw.

  • sam

    How is that for The Burn??

  • Sara

    PLL’s raitings have been MUCH better than the content this summer season.. hopefully season 3B will be better in content!

  • RJ

    The viewer retention for Franklin and Bash is awful.

  • John A

    @Nikki ABC Family has i hit in PLL and a decent performer in SAB. CW has a hit with TVD and solid performer with SPN. CW And ABC Family both have plenty of flops.
