    @KarenM

    When viewers begins to fly, it’s always because of bad scripts. Writers/producers think they can do whatever they want because fans stick to it no matter what, and they are wrong all the time (I’m looking at you The Good Wife).

  • Jade

    The Lying Game was on point last night. Best episode to date. Hopefully the ratings reflect that.

  • THE OLD MAN

    Justified seems to be steady

  • junior

    TBFL, spike report they just have nothing worth watching

  • tk

    White Collar solid, scores big with DVR – always in top 10 time shifted. Season 5 should be last so Matt can stay on track at becoming huge, he’s too good for cable and tv in general.

  • Dillan

    @mike

    Thanks for posting! Looks like it didn’t do very well considering a repeat of Teen Mom 2 made the list, but True Life didn’t.. lol.

  • Mark

    DirecTV had Cougar Town as a repeat last night.

  • BJH

    CT should come back, but it might get a smaller episode order. Still, I want it to do well.

  • Ron

    TLG is absolutely fantastic.The way Alexandra plays both Sutton and Emma is unbelievable,that girl is going places.TLG is so underrated and i have gotten more answers from TLG in 2 seasons then i have with PLL in 3 seasons(Ridiculous).We still haven’t found out who killed Allison(I am a fan of both shows)

  • panda22

    PLL rock solid….I expect a 1.4 or 1.5 for the finale :)

  • DM

    PLL is doing great.

    I’m interested to see how Dance Moms does next week when it’s up against PLL with a 2 hour episode.

    Sucks that they have to be on at the same time.

  • Dillan

    @Ron

    I agree, Alexandra is great in the show. I’m surprised she didn’t get the role of Elena in TVD when she auditioned, tbh. Not that Nina Dobrev isn’t already amazing on the show.

  • Jenny

    @Ron

    I’m a fan of both shows, but PLL nearly put me to sleep last night it was so boring. TLG had me on the edge of my seat, and that last minute was almost terrifying. That being said PLL has too much filler, and that’s the issue every season with this show. I expect the finale to be good though.

  • Jenny

    @DM

    Huh? PLL is not 2 hours next week it’s only one.

  • rob60990

    See, told ya PLL didn’t have to worry about Idol.

    Cougar Town continues to drop and drop. :D

  • Ron

    @Dillian Nina is great actress also

    @Jenny LMAO i agree last night’s episode was boring but as soon as TLG came on, i kept looking at the time trying to see when it was going off.That ending made my jaw drop.Excellent cast and Chuck Pratt did an terrific job making Charisma Carpenter an series regular,Love her!

  • DM

    Dance Moms is 2 hours for the next 2 weeks running from 8 to 10 instead of 9 to 10 right up against PLL.

  • Ian

    Season 5 of Cougar Town will happen it’s too close to syndication to give up on it now. Also TBS needs to focus on launching new shows. TBBT will start fall probably sooner rather than later. Also I bet CT will go up in ratings next week I heard there were issues with the broadcast or whatever.

  • Jenny

    @DM

    Oh, okay I misunderstood you. Thanks.

    @Ron
    I’m so happy Charisma’s on this show. Hopefully she stays on it for a while.

  • Elena

    I can’t believe there’s only 1 episode of TLG left! I really hope that it gets renewed and hopefully it’ll air late summer or something so it isn’t *too* long of a wait. I hear they only film early summer-late summer, so who knows.
