    @Dante – I think both The Fosters and Twisted have a good chance at a back order. With Secret Life not returning and Bunheads & Lying Game likely dead ABC Family only has PLL and Switched at Birth. That means ABC Family is more likely to keep both new dramas.

  • Nikki

    oy.. if im not mistaken its a free country and i can say what i like. And second i was having a conversation with chasinglifesucks.. no need to butt in just because you like these new shows. And others dont. =)

  • Daniel

    Very good for PLL
    I as a fan of The Lying Game and Bunheads, I am saddened by the numbers Twisted, amazing with the ABC Family show that promotes and displays several reruns. TLG and Bunheads not have even half the promotion of Twisted.

  • Brian

    Good job Twisted hopefully it will go even higher next week!!

  • Dave

    Great for Twisted!

    Goodbye Lying Game :D

  • DM

    Most shows on abc family get at least a first season back order pickup. How many episodes usually depends on ratings. The shows that perform poorly in their first run usually only get 8 episodes (see Jane By Design and Bunheads) the ones that are stronger get 10-12 or in the case if Switched At Birth 20.

    The only recent abc family shows to get cancelled after only their first run were Huge, The Nine Lives of Chloe King, and State of Georgia. All of those shows started with fair to decent ratings but the ratings just kept declining as the season went on. If The Fosters and Twisted manage to maintain their current ratings throughout the summer chances are they will both get back orders and a season 2 renewal will depend on how the back ordered episodes do. If they just keep dropping they will likely get cancelled. Right now it is too early to tell.

  • Alan

    Really great for PLL, this season is way better than season 3 so far! And I guess ABC Family must be thrilled with Twisted’s numbers. I think they have another hit between all their failures (Baby Daddy, Lying Game, Switched at Birth, Jane by Design, etc)

  • Alan

    @David How can you say you’re saddened by Twisted’s ratings? Bunheads barely has over 1 million viewers, and TLG was expected to do waaay better because of the author, and the heavy promotion it had.

  • Koratta

    It’s a different choice this year because ABCFam picked up both Ravenswood and The Cancer Show. Switched at Birth got a full season pickup already. With Twisted and Fosters already doing better than both Lying Game and Bunheads, doing more in the range of Switched, it is really tough. Twisted has aired three times and has stayed very close to the same number, a number bigger overall than Switched is doing.

  • Dan

    So does anyone know The Lying Game and Bunheads average for their most recent seasons so we can compare and contrast?

  • FringeFan

    @Dan

    Bunheads – 0.5 w/ 1.25 million total viewers.
    TLG – 0.5 w/ 1.27 million total viewers.

    This is according to TV Series Finale.

  • Brandy

    @Aln, Switched had the highest debut ever on abcfamily and is /has been thier second highest rated showabcfamily promotes it as a “hit series” & wouldn’t have gotten ac20 episode backorder in season one instead of the usual 8-10 and a second season if it was failure and is stable with the last part of season ones ratings.Shows that get a second season -Baby Daddy,Lying Game,Switched-aren’t failures.Shows that get cancelled quick-JBD,Huge,Georgia,NLoCK and Dancing Fools which has shipped to fri night graveyard- are failures.

  • Nikki

    They are not doing better then Lying game and Bunheads their doing the same. Noone knows whats gunna happen till they announce it. And i dont believe those numbers are right for the average for the shows either. The lying game had a bunch of really high scoring episodes.

  • Nikki

    @ brandy thank you for calling them out on their whacked out facts. What people will do to make their shows look better. The lying game and Switched are by no means failures.

  • Brandy

    @Nikki, welcome.Id call Lying Game a moderately rated stable performer , but only a fool or crazy person would call a networks second highest rated show “a failure”.

  • Ron

    Nikki and Brandy i love you two.My favorite commenter’s.

  • Alyssa

    Yes, thank you Brandy and Nikki. How on earth Switched is considered a failure when the lowest it has received in the demo is a .6 and other than that has stayed between .7-.8 consistently since its 1B premiere in January ’12 is beyond me. If that were true, every other show besides PLL could be considered a “failure.”

  • Deano

    Year to date, Twisted is ABCFam’s number two show.

  • Daniel

    @FringeFan

    Bunheads – 0.5 w/ 1.16 million total viewers.
    TLG – 0.5 w/ 1.28 million total viewers.

    In the TV Series Finale, Bunheads is wrong.

  • Nikki

    @ Brandy yeah TLG is a stable performer… that would be the catogory it would fit in. And yes you took the words right out of my mouth.. Switched is by far the second highest rated show on the network. And only a crazy person would call it a failure. Bitter much?? lol And Ron thanks lol. =) i appreciate nice comments.. i usually get mean ones lol. nice change of pace.
