    the lying game is great alexandra chando is awesome at what she does. Steady for PLL and White Collar so im happy. Just gotta see how TLG did.

  • Richard Steven Hack

    PLL was fantastic last night due almost solely to Troian Bellisario’s Emmy-worthy performance. Absolutely brilliant acting. She’s clearly the best actor of the four girls. Unlike many actresses, she cried believably in very emotional scenes.

    Her character, Spencer, is incarcerated for a 72 hour mental evaluation – with the potential of being remanded there – in the same mental hospital – indeed, the same room – as her nemesis Mona was, after being found wandering in the woods after discovering Toby Cavanaugh’s body.

    Nonetheless, Spencer, the “smart one”, can’t stop trying to find out more about how Mona got in and out of the hospital during her stay. She’s been interrogating a helpful orderly to find out how, with reveals about Toby.

    Can’t wait for the finale! Only two more episodes left!

  • Brandy

    Good for PLL

  • Sam

    What did TLG

  • Sam

    Get ^^

  • klaxa

    @Jenny

    I´m not sure about LG. It was good, but it almost feels like the next week they reveal the killer, the remaining (two) characters will be finally told about the twins, Sutton will accept Emma and Ethan together and that´s it, the end. The show´s plotlines are so simple and all the big mysteries already out, it will be hard to continue.

    PLL is completely different universe and I know when they finally do the big reveal in the last episode of season 5 or whenever the actresses decides to bold it will be very much like Lost and people will be bitching months and years after how awfull it was. But I´m still enjoying the ride. As long as I will get the occasional Ali flashback/visit from beyond and some Hanna´s oneliners I´m happy.

  • Ron

    So i guess it had more viewers and stayed steady in demo going up against American Idol that shares the audience.

  • Ram510

    Oh noooooooo Cougar Town!!!!!! These past 2 episodes have been GREAT the ratings (in a perfect world) should be going up. Hopefully next week it rebounds.

  • Sam

    @kayla what does bold mean ?

  • Elena

    @klaxa It has been said multiple times that the next episode will end in a completely unexpected cliffhanger, just like season one’s finale in which everything that had happened was a lying game. There are two mysteries going on right now, the Derek Rogers case, which has been going for a while, and Theresa’s recent kidnapping/murder. At this plot, the killers in both cases are up in the air. I really don’t think everything will be “solved” in one episode, but maybe the viewers find out something that the central characters don’t. I definitely don’t know where you’re seeing the “simple plotlines” – the show can get a bit twisted and confusing!

  • Martin

    @Panda22

    I will have to disagree on what you think Pretty Little Liars will get for its finale, i think it will be even higher than 1.4-1.5, i say it could actually get a 1.7 maybe even a 1.8, its been pretty steady, its strongest half a season yet i think, and finales always much much higher.

    Also, I do think The Lying Game will be renewed, mainly because ABC Family keeps, even now with just one episode left, advertising it as the spring finale. Plus with Bunheads certain to go, Ratings perspective only fans, and Secret Life ending this summer, only returning dramas network has are Switched At Birth and PLL, so Lying Game has better chance, even if they do indeed pick up that 3rd drama.

    Also, can’t believe The Lying Game SPOILER Theresa, and in case it was slightly ambiguous at the end, the sneak peeks at the finale make it definite that she is dead, her and Dan are/were my favourite couple on the show. Also, I don’t think Rebecca is the killer, at least not of both people, it would be too easy. My hunch is, for some reason Thayer killed at least Derek and maybe Alec killed or accidentally killed Theresa to cover it up.

  • Jim

    Cougar Town is really starting to slip

  • Damiker

    I love TLG>>>PLL too bad the ratings don’t reflect that… Hoping for a renewal.

  • Elena

    @Martin I too think that Thayer will be revealed as having been involved in either case in some way, but I don’t think that’ll be the end all be all. If Thayer killed one of them, I think Alec knows, hence the odd “fatherly love” scenes between them in the last 2 episodes, and is trying to possibly protect him by trying to get the dirt on Rebecca.

  • marlene

    Alexandra Chando is a great actress ABC Family woulf be dumb to not keep her as one of their networks actresses most of the actors on ABC family seem to be going places Troian Bellisario too the actors on that network are great actresses and actors they desrve the support of ABCF at their fullest.

  • Dan

    Waiting for the renovation of The Lying Game, the show is definitely the best currently ABC Family (better until PLL), Alexandra Chando and Charisma Carpenter are excellent actresses.

  • PckrFan75

    Cougar Town has lost 720,000 viewers in the past three weeks. I bet the people at TBS are wondering what’s going on. ABC couldn’t save it, I don’t see how TBS can. BBT reruns before and after CT are doing much better.

  • pll fan

    troian is a great actress and i think she’ll continue to do well after the show is over. the biggest actress to come out of abc family though is clearly shailene woodley. i never thought she was great on secret life but then again who is with writing like that! she’s getting a lot of major roles though now that the show is over: mary jane in the next spiderman, lead in divergent, possible lead in the fault in our stars, and her movie that comes out this summer got critical acclaim at sundance. secret life ended at the perfect time for her.

  • ed

    @PckrFan75

    It lost those viewers but the final results always do the same values ( 2.4M – 3.1M) so I don’t know why they should get worried

  • Shepherd

    pretty bad for WC finale.
