    Looks like TLG hit a 0.6. Good that it went up in total viewers too.

    It should get the season 2 backorder.

  • Dave

    TLG will survive due to Bunheads certain cancellation.

  • Nicole

    Hell ya for both shows!

  • s0303

    0.6 doesn’t sound very good following a 1.2 to me…hope it doesn’t get cancelled…

  • Meghan

    I’ve always thought that expecting people to watch a show just because it airs after another show is kind of unrealistic.

    Well, TLG got a press mention, unlike Bunheads, so………..

  • Nicole

    Is it really a 0.6? how do they get that when it posted 1.0 and over in each demo?

  • John A

    I wish TLG could at least hit a regular 0.7-0.8. 0.6 is just poor with that lead in.

  • rob60990

    “Is it really a 0.6? how do they get that when it posted 1.0 and over in each demo?”

    Male demos are much much smaller.

  • Dillan

    If ABCFamily decided on shows renewals and cancellations on how much it loses from its lead in, TLG wouldn’t have got a second season.

    As long as it beats Bunheads and doesn’t fall below a 0.5, a season 2 backorder will happen.

  • Chris

    Things are looking up for The Lying Game!!!!

    Is Pretty Little Liars down or up from last episode? I hope PLL gets picked up for a 4th Season, I love the so much.

  • kougie757

    Chris, PLL is already renewed for a fourth season.

  • Tee

    I am almost forty and can’t miss one episode of PLL. Is that cause to be concerned?

  • Martin

    The lying game already has season 2b renewal, they renewed it sure 20 episodes last year, not ten.

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Heh, I’m in my sixties and I watch PLL religiously. Those girls are hot! Even their mothers are hot! :-) My two favorites are Troian and Shay, Troian because she’s the “smart one” with the most attitude, and Shay is the “angsty one” who’s gay. The show remains compelling even though the plots have become incredibly complex and we’re still no closer to who is REALLY behind the “A team”.

  • j

    Well, all the liars’ actresses are in their twenties so it’s not that weird.

    Except the dead girl Alison, who is currently still years away from being legal. She was barely a teenager when the show started, which makes it gross given all the grown men her character is said to have been with.

  • ChuckieChk

    I love the fact how new layers are always added to the storylines on Pretty Little Liars that make you go, “hmmm, I didn’t see that coming”. I’m an adult male who hooked on the show because of a younger cousin and i can NOT miss an episode!

  • Jenny


    Where the heck are you reading that? The Lying Game got renewed for 10 episodes(2A).If it does well enough they’ll order a back 10.

  • Kyle. S

    I think this review sums up PLL pretty well.

    “…it doesn’t make a single iota of sense—but man, can the ride be fun.”


  • Nicole

    With how The Lying Game has been performing it will get the other half of the season. The show is so good.. way better then Ringer was. And Alexandra Chando is great.. shes going to do bigger things soon.

  • david

    Both shows were really good on Tuesday night. They both had good twists in them.
