    The Lying Game is down from last week in all categories mentioned.

  • Lara

    PLL is so steady!

  • Jenny


    I noticed that too. Might have something to do with The Bachelor.

  • Ron

    Still ok for TLG.It should get the back order pretty soon.It had more competition yesterday,Ex:Bachelor,Emily owens finale,Mindy,New Girl and etc…

  • Jared

    As long as The Lying Game keeps getting mentioned in these press releases I’m hopeful it will get its back order.

  • Michael

    The Lying Game is really entertaining this season!!!

  • Richard Steven Hack

    PLL is one show I always look forward to watching. The girls are hot, the writing is good, the plot is complex and compelling.

    Did I mention the girls are HOT? Even their mothers are hot! :-)

    Actually one of my favorite characters is Caleb, Hannah’s boy friend. That guy is just totally cool – plus he’s a hacker (I’m into computer security.)

    I think the girl in red coat is Aria, and she wears a blonde wig when she’s “A”. This is very similar to how Allison used to wear a black wig when she was trying to hide from A. Aria also wore the same red coat when she had Mona placed in the mental asylum, and she wore it for the first time for the audience in the episode where the girls are outside the doll shop, and the pilot guy sees Aria from the back and calls her.

    So what was the lying games numbers.. 0.6 or something like that. How do they figure that out anyways, does anyone know?

    Can you guys help get more viewers by being socially active on Facebook and Twitter, and please encourage any one you can to watch TLG on Tuesdays! Encourage your aunts, uncles, friends, cousins to watch, so another show we love doesn’t get canceled! :)

  • Nicole

    @ jenny thanks. I never know how they figure that out. Didnt the lying game have 0.7 last week? so its down a little. But still holding steady. I really like this show.. but i think it only needs another season so hopefully they get the season 2 back order and then a short 3rd season and id be happy. I just dont see there being enough stories to go any farther then 3 seasons but then again who knows.

  • israelCD

    THE LYING GAME is such a good show ! U People should give it a chance !
    PRETTY LITTLE LIARS = best teen show on tv right now !

  • Dillan


    No. TLG got a 0.6 last week. Out of the 5 episodes this season, 4 episodes have got a 0.6 and 1 got a 0.5.

  • Jenny


    No, the The Lying Game had a 0.6 last week too. So it’s steady in demo.

  • Nicole
