    @Ronald no problem. Gotta stick up for my shows lol =)

    There is no point in comparing PLL and LG ratings. PLL is the same phenomenon for ABC family as Vampire Diaries is for CW. Both shows have their own exclusive group of viewers who tune in solely for that show. And they both are the “IT” shows, you basically have to watch them if you are part of the target group and want to stay in. But LG is doing well. They are even gaining some new viewership in its second season, even after almost year long pause. And they found their own style and pace, they know what story they want to tell and they are confident about it. It would be stupid to cancel now.

    I agree, well said. :)

  • Bumblebee

    Slightly playing devils advocate here. I think TLG will be renewed for at least another 10 episodes it’s doing well, but simply putting something positive on a press release does not *garantee* they are happy with a show.

    Bunheads is actually unusual in that the network appears to have completely given up with it, it’s 18-34 numbers must be terrible, but usually a press release will claim “significant increases” however mediocre the actual results are.

    **Plus that Twisted show sounds like its going to bring bad press for the network. What happens if that flops they will have an open spot. And they dont want that.***

    There might be some press over it but I think it will be seen and promoted as the guy version of PLL more than anything.

  • Bumblebee

    @ Klaxa, you pretty much nailed it. I can’t believe how much of a phenomenon PLL still is at the end of the 3rd season, but TLG is doing well for the network and better in the demos ABCF is interested in than a lot of CW show are doing.

  • Nikki

    @ bumblebee i dont think it sounds anything like pretty little liars. And in my opinion its going to bring the network bad press because of what the shows all about. But i could be wrong.. and question who wont be call avan jorgia beck from victorious lol i have a kid who watched that and i know thats what i will be thinking lol

  • Nikki

    klaxa has it exactly right. It would be silly to let go of the lying game now.

  • Phoenixlighter

    I’m crazy for PLL; it’s the only show I still watch and I’m glad it’s doing so great. I think TLG is loosing WAAAAY too much out of PLL. 7 tenths are a lot, specially for cable. 1.2 -> 0.5. It’s still doing okay, could be worse; but it has no real future. Seriously. When it keeps falling in season 2B and eventually 3A ABCF will cancel it. 2 more tenths down constantly and TLG is GONE!

    Good to see both showws up this week.

    anyone that uses “flop” in a title will immediately be cursed. You are forewarned.

  • Gypsy fortune teller

    LOLOL!!!! Are you guys KIDDING with this Bad Press for “twisted”?????? I have never watched it but I am a big fan of PPL. PPL boasts not one but THREE pedophiliac love matches. Well lol..not pedo, but statutory rape, certainly. One of them with her high school teacher. How is THAT for bad press??? If they don’t mind that they don’t mind much.
