    Perception is hanging on!

  • DM

    TLG already got cancelled. So Twisted and The Fosters are probably both safe. It’s Bunheads that’s up in the air.

  • cimmer

    That’s a drop for Covert Affairs, a little surprising.

  • RJ

    @Dillan,
    Very few cable shows go into syndication. The Lying Game had no chance whatsoever to make it there.

  • Brandy

    Good for PLL.I think Bunheads will be cancelled,Twisted too after its season(its in the same 0.4_0.7 in A 18_49 as the just cancelled Lying Game)& The Fosters gets a backorder,Switched gets a full third season, and abcfamily picks a couple new shows in addition to already picked up Chasing Life.
    Rizzoli will get renewed as it just got a syndication deal.

  • samurai99

    Glad to finally have suits back!

    You don’t usually see hbo on here outside of Sunday. Ted must be more popular than I thought.

  • Shayla

    Rizzoli and Isles just got a syndication deal this week. So i guess that is good. Sorry just started watching the show and really like it.

  • Tim

    Suits is a FLOP when it comes to viewers, not even 3 million? FLOP

  • Dorothy

    I think it’s very difficult to say which young skewing shows are performing “better” using mainly (in some cases only) 18-49 ratings and total viewers. For example last night Catfish on MTV and America’s Got Talent on NBC got such different ratings in the mentioned segments, yet were essentially tied with viewers under 35 (info from TVMoJoe @ Twitter).

  • Michael

    I’m happy that PLL is only two tenths above Switched At Birth!

  • Alan

    PLL holds at 1.0’s! Last night’s episode was amazing, I hope it keeps that mystery, but I wish it was a 1.1 but it’s fine with all the competition. Twisted doing fine too, I hope it gets a back order soon.

  • Ram510

    Wow @ Suits! To score a 1.1 after Covert crappy .6 is phenomenal!

    Perception held up well

  • brandojames

    Suits did well for USA. They did way better last year. But it is a new night and a much weaker lead in. Covert Affairs has never been on at 9. It use to beat White Collar some weeks when it had that as a lead in. It’s on Necessary Roughness levels. I haven’t watched the last 2 seasons. But I hope it can continue.

  • ChasingLifeSucks

    @Brandy, if these type of ratings were unacceptable for ABC Family they wouldn’t have waited so long to cancel The Lying Game. They don’t want TWO shows on the network with these kind of ratings but they clearly are okay with one, Twisted’s ratings are better, plus it’s a new show (easier to gain viewers) and it’s a show ABC Family owns, so they went with Twisted. Had Twisted debuted far lower than The Lying Game then ABC Family would have announced the return of The Lying Game on Monday.

    Plus, I don’t ever remember ABC Family ordering a new show in the fall and launching it in winter/spring. They are already launching Ravenswood and Chasing Life in fall/winter, launching a third new show would be a lot to take on, and it could easily do far worse than Twisted. At least with Twisted they know what they are going to get, which is another reason why they waited to see how Twisted did before they cancelled The Lying Game, they didn’t want to cancel The Lying Game just incase Twisted did much worse.

  • Kaaboom

    Covert Affairs really deserve higher ratings, ever since season 3 it has gotten so much better, i hope the ratings increase!

  • Dan S

    I guess USA should’ve kept CA @10pm & put Suits on at 9pm.

  • Sparky

    What was the ratings like for Suits when it was on Thurs at 10? Would actually prefer if they moved it back. Dont thinj Graceland has the following Suits has to anchor a Thurs night.

  • Frank

    SUITS was AWESOME last night! So glad it did well. I have to admit, though, it pushes me to watch the later airing of “Perception”, which was also good. I’m not as much into R&I this season and I tried to watch “Covert Affairs” last night, but couldn’t get past the first 15 mins.

  • Ram510

    @Pat

    Perception is at a .7 and Franklin & Bash is at a .6 how is that “down significantly”?

  • zach

    Frank you should try Rizzoli and Isles this season it is good. Last night was as others here have said…INCREDIBLE. They have gone a little darker and intense this year and next week looks awesome too.
