  • Chris

    Totally T-Boz and The Sisterhood numbers, please and thank you?

  • Brandy

    Great for PLL!

  • Brandy

    For everybody talking about The Lying Game you would think the ratings would rank!

  • Rachel

    @Rolls

    Like I said, TLG wasn’t promoted well. Chloe King is another “random” show that would’ve been better off on Sci-Fi not ABC Family. Half-cat girl is not something that interests the ABC Family audience. The Fosters has buzz because there hasn’t been a show on tv lead by two gay women and their diverse family. We’ll just have to agree to disagree on that one. Socio…doesn’t matter. People will still watch it.

  • Rolls

    I haven’t heard any buzz about The Fosters. I don’t think there is anything buzzable about it. But it might be really good. Which would be better.
    I actually think of the two Chloe King was promoted worse than the Lying Game. It had good reviews too, didn’t it?

  • Rachel

    @Rolls

    I haven’t heard any buzz about The Fosters.
    Well of the 3 pilots it’s definitely had the most positive reaction rather than negative(Socio) or none at all(Terminales).

    I actually think of the two Chloe King was promoted worse than the Lying Game. It had good reviews too, didn’t it?

    I don’t know. I never watched CK but the promos where really random just like the TLG. Clearly ABC Family doesn’t know how to promote some of their shows.

  • Jerry

    The Tuesday Night Liars are really awesome.

    The Lying Game which I watched for the first time last night is an interestingly good show I’m surprised its as overlooked as it is.

  • rob60990

    Chloe Kings was highly promoted. They constantly played that Katy Perry song in the commercials. The show had awful reviews.

    ABC Family highly promotes The Lying Game. They even try to get PLL fans to watch by saying they will show a sneak peak to next week’s episode.

  • Melissa

    …And The Big Bang Theory takes the night.

  • RosyBum

    The Fosters generated buzz when One Million Moms announced they were boycotting ABCfamily over it (I think they were already but oh well). It kind of feels like a kitchen sink drama but it has a good cast and with a good script it could catch the S@B type interest. I think the two moms as leads (1st time I think) will get some publicity.

    I think TLG has been fairly well promoted at this point, even if it wasn’t to start with they did ramp it up after and if it doesn’t find an audience behind PLL then it probably wont anywhere. I personally think it’s kind of bland despite the juicy premise.

  • MBmomof3

    Love PLL! Glad it’s back. We missed it.

  • Jerry

    The Tuesday Night Liars are really awesome.

  • SmG

    Great start for PLL!

  • Patrick Ausgewahlt

    TBBT is doing exceptionally well because they are running Season 5 episodes, which CBS itself occasionally repeats

  • SarahL

    Yay, Justified!. Such a great show, more people need to start watching.

  • SarahL

    I can’t believe that Iron Man 2 did even better than Justified.

  • silvit

    The Fosters generated buzz when One Million Moms announced they were boycotting ABCfamily over it

    Ah, well. Hardly buzz. It reminds me of when the other association was making a big deal over The Playboy Club. And we know that people didn’t give a crap about The Playboy Club.

    And two female characters raising children together is hardly something new. ER did it, GA still does it. That’s practically what gay women do on tv. Unless they are younger and come back to men and stop being gay. ;-)

    Moreover, it sounds bland and cheesy. If not totally unrealistic since in no way adoptions are so easy, especially for gay women. This is sci-fi.

  • rooney72

    Justified, up 30% in the demo from last year’s premiere. Way to go!

  • mike

    PLL was a bit boring last night. I’m kind of rooting for A to kill Aria and Ezra.

  • rob60990

    .7 & 1.552 million for The Lying Game

    In W18-34, PLL got a 3.5. TLG got a 1.6.
