    “Pretty Little Liars” climbs by impressive margins based on a full week of viewing, surging to 3.3 million Total Viewers
    but in the Tuesday cable ratings it says 2.3 million viewers??

  • Christian

    They must be combining the original and encore telecasts.

    Can Ezra be the betrAyer? That Aria/Ezra relationship sucks the oxygen out of the whole show!

  • Sid

    Not that it’s future is in doubt, but I wonder when ABCF will announce its renewal. I’m guessing they’re waiting to see how Season 3B performs?

  • Brandy

    It usually kicks ass in ratings.. I love that show. 4th season here we come.

    Christian: Since Ezra is the last person anyone would suspect of being “A”, I conclude that he is in fact “A”… :-)

    Unless one of the girls’ mothers is “A”… :-)

    We saw last night that there are at last two “members of A” around…

    Maybe “A” will turn out to be the whole town of Rosewood EXCEPT the girls and their parents… :-)

    Ah, conspiracy theory, thy name is bliss! :-)

    I’d be curious to see how many males watch this show as well. I started watching whe my cousin was living with us and it was her favorite tv show and after a few episodes I was hooked.

    “Cable TV’s #1 series in Viewers 12-34 (2.23 million/2.5 rating) and Females 12-34 (2.00 million/4.4 rating)” – So for every 2 million women, there are .23 million men.

    Also, that and “the #1 scripted cable TV series in Women 18-34 (1.09 million/3.3 rating)” make me wonder what True Blood’s #s are.

    What type of message are we sending with aria and her teacher
