    Twisted sounds like it will be very good. I’ve been excited for it for a while, so I was happy to hear ABC Family picked it up. I will be tuning in.

    This press release is so late. I knew about this weeks ago. Odd we still have no promo for Twisted. Guess one we will get one tonight.

  • ltbumblebee

    I think the first promo will be tonight, they showed the first The Fosters promo last night after S@B. I AM surprised they didn’t announce this “sneak peak” sooner though.

    A smart move by ABCF here, it’ll give Twisted a very big sampling.
    Still no word on Bunheads or TLG……

  • EatMorePez

    ABC Family really needs a new hit. Hopefully either Twisted or The Fosters will come through for them.

    I can see The Fosters doing well. Maybe not PLL numbers, but it might be able to hold onto a solid .08/.09, maybe. It’s different enough to set it apart from the other shows on ABCF. Twisted, who knows. I can see it being a hit that crashes after a while. Problem is, it’s similar to PLL and TLG.

    The lying game best not get cancelled. Its been holding steady all season, and i know theres a lot of fans of the show. And it gets a lot of internet mentioning. So i hope they either add a new night or air this twisted show for the first half of pretty little liars season 4 then end it and bring back TLG for the rest of the season. But i dont wanna wait really long for the lying game either so i hope they do something good. And i really hope they keep Bunheads too but im sure thats wishful thinking.
