    VERY NICE numbers for the Switched at Birth season finale last night. Which I have to say was a great finale to end the first season on!

    I can’t wait for Season 2 come this January!

  • Dillan

    Pretty good for Switched at Birth.

    I wonder how PLL will do tonight. I’m predicting a 1.2.

  • Jamie

    Happy Switched at Birth is FINALLY finished. One season spreading over two years, it was so difficult to keep up. The finale was great and the ratings reflect that. Now hopefully 9O21O will benefit from its absence.

  • Martin

    TVBTN guys, what do you think the chances are of Alphas being renewed, better than 50-50?

  • ingmarhappy

    Great for Switched at Birth!

  • Sid

    Good job Switched at Birth!

    It’s crushing 9O21O.

  • MDM

    Was hoping for record lows for RAW, close but no cigar.

  • Meanie

    Good for Switch At Birth.
    WWE Raw really needs to get rid of the three hour programming. Its just like Jersey Shore 2 hour block. I give up halfway through.

    I know VH1 can’t wait for LoveAndHipHopAtlanta to return so they can get back to dominating.

  • TV

    Seems people like Halloween more than friday the 13th
    Good for bad girls club. Next week should go up
    Adventure time blew my mind. The finale was cray!

  • Simon Jester

    @Martin,

    So hard to predict at this point. The ratings aren’t super, but by the same token, it’s not as expensive and effects-heavy as other Syfy shows that have gotten the axe. Could go either way, I think, depending on how the numbers (ad revenue vs. production costs) crunch. I thought the season finale was really great, though.

  • Brandy

    Switched got double the ratings of 90210 in demo. Wow!

  • Walternate

    @ Simon Jester: I loved the finale too. Hopefully Alphas gets another season. Need my Gary fix.

  • pll fan

    That’s pretty good for the S@B finale. It needed to have good numbers for the finale seeing as it really hasn’t performed terribly well since it returned. PLL will get HUGE numbers tonight though. I’m predicting 2.5 million viewers and a 1.3 demo.

  • Ram510

    Wow Raw took a dip in ratings

  • pll fan

    I meant I’m predicting 2.7 million viewers and a 1.3 demo for PLL tonight.

  • Clarke

    A&E’s Intervention and Hoarders only got 0.4 and 0.5. Those numbers seem pretty low for new episodes, could these two shows get canceled in the near future?

  • Jonny C…. formerly Jon

    That was Alphas finale numbers :0.5?… Ugh…. at least it did similarly to Warehouse 13…but that scares me to think there might not be a season 3.

  • Jared

    I like Switched at Birth but by stretching one season out for 2 years ultimately hurt the series momentum. Maybe ABCF now knows that long hiatuses do nothing but hurt a shows ratings and lets there audience find other things to watch. I guess this is the reason why season 2 will start in January. Its ashame because this show was very promising early on.

  • Nikki

    Awesome for Switched.. i knew it would kill 90210 and Gossip Girl.. it usually does. Great episode too, the numbers are well deserved. PLL will do awesome tonight. Im guessing 3 million viewers and 1.9 2.0. It will crush heart of dixie and emily owens. So happy for ABCFamilys shows.. they are kicking butt. And wait till the other shows return they will be kicking butt every monday and tuesday. Woohoo. lol

  • Antoine

    @Jonny C…. formerly Jon: 0.5 is the number for Adults 18-49 rating !
    Viewership (million, Live+SD) is 1,172 ;-)
    Please SyFy renew Alphas! Great show. Best show on SyFy.
