Pretty Little Liars Season 4

via press release:


Against a critical game 6 of the NBA Finals on ABC, an all new Pretty Little Liars ranked as Tuesdays #1 scripted TV telecast in Adults 18-34, Women 18-34, Viewers 12-34 and Females 12-34 – #1 across all cable TV – and was also the #1 cable TV telecast in Adults 18-49 and Women 18-49. Pretty Little Liars was again Tuesdays #1 most-tweeted TV series, driving the network to rank as the #1 most-tweeted cable TV network, amassing nearly 5x the amount of the #2 entertainment cable TV network, MTV. Week to week, despite the stiff competition, Pretty Little Liars grew by 2% in Adults 18-34 and by 1% in Adults 18-49.
At 9pm, also facing the NBA Finals, as well as the season finale of NBC’s The Voice, Twisted bucked the new series trend, soaring by double digits over its week ago premiere in target demos, including by 12% in Total Viewers, by 26% in Adults 18-34 and by 34% in Adults 18-49. Twisted was cable TVs #1 telecast at 9pm in Women 18-34, Viewers 12-34 and Females 12-34, and the #1 original cable TV telecast in Adults 18-34 and Adults 18-49. In fact, it finished as Tuesdays #2 cable TV telecast in Females 12-34, behind only Pretty Little Liars.

    Don’t worry SAB fans, our show will rise next week! At least, I hope now that The Voice is done.

    This is not great news for Bunheads, which is by far the most intelligent and entertaining show ABC Family has ever aired. It is a crime that they are pitting shows one against another for their success. Shame on you ABC Family!!! Neither Fosters or Twisted can hold a candle to the fabulous Bunheads!!

    @ dennis – PLL is the best show that abc fam has ever done, hands down. i say this despite the fact that i love gilmore girls more than life and am a huge AS-P fan. bunheads is quality and i agree that its sh*t the way they’re pitting everything against one another but credit where credit is due.

  • cas

    All shows on networks compete against each other. I mean if a show fails there is always a backup. This show is performing better, so far, than Bunheads. I don’t watch either, so I don’t care but it isn’t just ABC Family. They are going to air what brings in the viewers.
