    @ed

    I bet at the end of the this season of Cougar Town, the viewer average for all the 15 episodes will be about 1.8-1.9M

  • Tessa

    I still haven’t watched the WC finale but I’m pretty over this James story so I hope they wrap it up soon (at least the James side of it) and move on to something more interesting. WC has always been about Neal’s perils with antique music boxes and hidden treasures, not he and Peter serving and protecting a side character no one gives a damn about.

  • ed

    @PckrFan75

    Live + Same day ratings: probably
    but +3Days or +7Days I doubt.

    I believe that CT was affected because of CityTV or DirectTV (don’t know the real name) that called that episode a repeat so some people didn’t DVR or watched, but like I said I think that at the end of the week this episode’s audience will be between 2.4 – 3,1M.

  • Bill

    No robot combat league?

  • charlene

    Does anybody know when , where and what time the abc family upfronts will be?

  • Richard Steven Hack

    klaxa: “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.”

    LOL! I still think “A” is Ezra because he’s the LAST person anyone would suspect. :-)

    I think I’m seeing a trend in which every person the girls get involved with ends up dead or part of the “A” team (and then dead, as in the case of Toby – if that WAS Toby’s body, tattoo or not.) So sooner or later Ezra has to be dragged in or revealed to be part of the “A” team. I hope they don’t screw over Caleb who’s one of my favorite characters, but I bet he gets it next year. Anyone Emily gets involved with is dead meat just because they’re gay. :-) Hanna’s mom is probably going to get it sooner rather than later, which will disappoint me since Laura is hot. Then they’ll probably go after Aria’s mom and dad – her dad was already marginally involved this season.

    In short, everyone gets in the neck sooner or later since this is “Ten Little Indians” type story-telling.

    In fact, I think Spencer’s statement this week: “I’m not me any more. And you can’t count on me” is foreboding. I think maybe she might actually kill somebody. I certainly hope it’s Mona. As I said a couple episodes ago, when she screamed “Die” and jumped Mona, that was the highlight of the season. That elevated her over the others as my favorite PLL.

    “As long as I will get the occasional Ali flashback/visit from beyond”

    Oh, yeah, I love Sasha! She’s almost the coolest character on the show. Always has it together.

    “and some Hanna´s oneliners I´m happy.”

    Ya like the one last night: “Sometimes you poke the bear, sometimes the bear pokes you….It was in a movie…” LOL Amazing she’s lasted this long being such a ditz. :-)

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Re White Collar finale. I thought the episode was a bit weak until the last five or ten minutes.

    The problem with it is that we all know it’s going to be resolved within three episodes into the next season. Neal’s father will be dragooned back to testify, Peter will be cleared and back in the Bureau, and everything goes back to normal.

    This season was not as good as previous seasons because the villain was too lame. Most of the drama around Neal’s father was not compelling.

    They’d better up the ante next season or it may be their last.

  • pll fan

    charlene,
    the only information that is available about the abc family upfronts is that they are next tuesday the 12th, in the evening in nyc. there is no other information available online about where they are being held.

  • Alan

    Cougar Town, stop dropping! You were doing so well.

  • Jenny

    The Lying Game – ABC Family
    1.218 million viewers, #16; 0.629 million adults 18-49 (0.5 rating), #18

    The Lying Game held steady at a 0.5 up against American Idol. Hopefully it can rise next week

  • Jenny

    Oh, and The Lying Game is steady vs last season this time.

    The Lying Game – ABC Family(3/5/13)
    1.218 million viewers, 18-49 (0.5 rating)

    The Lying Game- Episode 01-20: Monday, 03/05/12
    0.5 demo rating with 1.24 million.

    If The Lying Game can increase to a 0.6 for the finale and be up vs last year it’s a lock for renewal.

  • POI

    Cougar Town was so amazing last night people should really watch it.

  • John A

    TLG loses 7 tenths from PLL again? Wow its a horrible performer every week. It will get a episode increase but should be cancelled then.

  • pll fan

    john a,
    i agree. the retention for the lying game out of pll is awful. i get that ratings are better than they were last year but they’re still pretty bad. the only reason the lying game gets saved is because bunheads will get the boot instead.

  • John A Fan

    Thanks for the insight, John A. I know you probably can’t say, but are you involved in programming decisions at ABC Family? Poor punctuation notwithstanding, that was some razor-sharp analysis there. If you’re not already, you should run a network. You could be the Warren Littlefield of trolls.

  • Karaa

    Generally speaking, most PLL fans have no interest in watching The Lying Game. I feel like the ratings wouldn’t be that much different if say, it was behind Switched at Birth next time. TLG has a core audience, as does PLL. I hardly know anybody that watches both shows – it’s like one or the another with some people because of their “similarities.” I never really understood why retention is of as much importance as some people have been thinking.

  • sam

    No jesselnick offensive? 1030 comedy central

  • KevinY

    Season Finale of White Collar was awesome! I’m shocked the show skews so old.

    Only one guess who this could possibly be.

    Seriously Ron, if you can’t accept the fact that TLG is doing poorly and people here stating so, then you have no business being here calling people trolls. Grow up.
