    Wow PLL was a beast!! That’s awesome!

    And seeing as TLG didn’t even make the list I guess we can assume it will be in competition with Bunheads to see who gets the boot.

  • Ron

    @Sara Bibel what did the lying game get?

  • Jane

    Yay PLL! Best show!

  • silvit

    Sooo… Cougar Town did bad considering how huge TBBT did at 9:30. How TBBT can even get these numbers?

  • Tyler D

    Great numbers for Cougar Town. Not even a series low, which is impressive. What about The Lying Game?

  • silvit

    @DM

    Just to show you how broadcast tv became lazy and tired. PPL at 8 got higher ratings than The New Normal. Insane.

  • ItsMyLife

    DM

    TLG is never reported in the top 100. Their ratings come in later for some reason. It’s a running joke here not to ask for TLG ratings as they will come later.

  • Juan

    what about the Lying Game? also great for PLL. I think thats also OK for cougar Town, it did solid business and I hope it stays good cause I love it, fav comedy.

  • Mark

    That was about Cougar Town’s average on ABC last year so I’m happy with it. I think if it can stay above a .7 it will be fine!

  • silvit

    Which movie was on FX to get such high ratings?

  • maxwell

    Yay PLL!
    that’s pretty good for Cougar Town! It was worst at some point during the third Season on ABC! Season 5 here we GO!

  • Rachel

    @DM

    They’re both gonna get the boot. Mark my words. ABC Family has a few pilots in contention that I can easily see scoring better ratings than these duds.

  • Ron

    I am getting so nervous for The Lying Game,it’s just as good as Pretty Little Liars.We need Season 2b because the mid season finale is going to end on a huge cliff hanger according to the creator.

  • Tony JJ

    Pretty Little Liars did amazing! Wow a 1.4! I wonder how the lying game did.

    Cougar Town at a 1.1 is pretty good. Even though it had a 1.8 as it’s lead in. But man look at TBBT’s ratings at 10:30. It got a 1.0 at 10:30 it definitely killed TBBT’s momentum and they definitely aren’t compatible, but the ratings aren’t disappointing in any way.

    Snooki and Jwoww did good, but when you see Catfish getting a 1.4 and Buckwild premiering well, it shows that the Jersey Shore cast just isn’t what they used to be.

    Justified did good.

    Overall good ratings all around.

    Can’t wait for the lying game’s ratings! (which I think is an underrated show.)

  • Michael

    The Lying Game is very entertaining, but it goes to show that not even Pretty Little Liars as a lead-in could help this struggling show. People want to say how Switched At birth performed low, and that’s a starter show!

  • Bee

    yay for a 1.1. and saying that it’s a bad performance compared to TBBT’s 1.8 is unfair. TBBT is a BEAST. a complete monster and an exception to the norm. CT struggled even on broadcast. not to mention that TBBT’s laugh-track, nerdy nature is VERY different from CT’s single-cam, too-cool-for-school nature.

    anyway, i hope the audience sticks around for CT. last night’s premiere was good, but HARDLY their best effort.

  • JAA

    YAY for Castle, adding a new day really paid off for TNT, so much for saying Castle wasn’t doing so well on TNT :)

  • ItsMyLife

    Michael

    You don’t even have the ratings yet for TLG and you’ve already declared it struggling.

    Maybe TLG’s numbers was helpful in getting PLL the 1.4. okay that’s stretching it LOL.

    I’m keeping my fingers crossed TLG numbers are good.

  • Tony JJ

    @Ron

    that’s why I’m hoping ABC Family gives it a renewal. It would be a slap in the face to fans and to Sara Shepard (author of PLL and TLG) if they didn’t conclude it in some way and ended it on a huge cliffhanger.

    But speaking of TLG. The promos for this season premiere were horrible. The promos for PLL are great but the promos they show for TLG are just lame.

  • ethan

    Hmm wonder what MIOBIs ratings would be with that PLL lead in…#stupidabcF
