  • Nathan

    PLL was really good last night. One of the best episodes of the season.

  • David

    Decent for Suits, ouch for Covert Affairs!

  • Cookie

    I caught up with Pretty Little Liars on Netflix two weeks ago and have watched ALL episodes. That show is great. I thought it would be for preteen females but it’s a great show overall.

    Have also caught up with Breaking Bad. The best show on TV! Excellent.

  • Cyrax86

    Great for Suits on a new night but ouch for Covert Affairs! Necessary Roughness looks a bit safer now.

  • Pat

    Rizzoli and Isles is TNT’s steady rock. Great overall numbers, and pretty good demo numbers. Only a matter of time before it is renewed for another season next summer.

    Perception took a bit of a hit from the premiere of “Suits.” Down about 800,000 total viewers from last week, though the demo held steady at 0.7. The fact it held steady is good, but 0.7 is nothing to celebrate too much over. It’ll probably get a renewal, since Franklin & Bash and King & Maxwell are performing significantly lower in total viewers and in the demo….but if Suits continues to take a toll on it and the viewers drop below 3 million and/or the demo goes below 0.7, it could be in trouble.

  • John A

    Good for PLL and Twisted.

  • Cyrax86

    @Pat, I knew Suits would have that effect on Perception. It is USA’s biggest show now.

  • ytr

    Great for Suits, I loved it. Also Happy about PLL, Twisted is doind pretty good too.

  • Sarah

    @Cookie…Breaking Bad is unbelievable! I can’t wait until the final episodes begin airing in August:D

    Rizzoli and Isles was INCREDIBLE last night. It was just an all around great episode from beginning to end…I think it might actually be the best episode of the entire series thus far.

  • Pat

    @Cyrax86 Yep, and it was heavily advertised too. I think what is keeping Perception afloat is the lead-in from Rizzoli & Isles (even though it still lost 2 million viewers from the 9 pm hour). But if Suits picks up a bit more steam, then Perception could be in trouble…dipping below 3 million viewers and 0.6 in the demo. Perception’s saving grace may just be that two other TNT shows are performing worse.

  • rob60990

    PLL & Twisted steady. I could see ABCF giving both Twisted & The Fosters a back order but I don’t think Twisted has as much of a future.

    Horrible for Covert Affairs but nice for Suits almost doubling its lead-in.

  • John A

    Twisted getting better retention then TLG did anyway. It will get a back order but ABC Family would probably move it then it would sink to 0.4-0.5 area.

  • B

    Flop Affairs.

  • Dillan

    Good for PLL.

    Twisted only a tenth above TLG. I thought with TLG being closer to syndication, it would have had the edge over Twisted.

  • Shepherd

    Ouch. CA got killed by R&I. Suits did well though.

  • Shayla

    Rizzoli and Isles was incredible. I believe it was down a little in total viewers but stayed he same in the demo. I wonder if the sporting event or a little lap over with Covert Affairs fans brought down the overall number a little but clearly steady in the 5 million range demo of 1.0. Anyone hear if TNT will renew it? Are its numbers comparable to last year? Thanks anyone who may know!

  • Anon

    OWN definitely has a hit (by their standards) because The haves and have note has kept extremely steady so far.

  • Pat

    @Shayla If I am correct, Rizzoli and Isles is actually doing a bit better compared to last season. It is TNT’s biggest show, so it will be renewed.

    And I just happened to go back and look, Perception hit a SERIES low last night in terms of total viewers. Previous low was season 1’s finale of 3.485 million. Not good.

  • TV Addict

    It looks like Jeselnik offended too many people when he was drunk, so now he’s history.

  • The Original J

    It looks like this could be the final season for “Covert Affairs.”
