    Wow the fosters beats Switched at Birth in every demo except Adults 18-49 and switched at birth just edges out the fosters barely.

    The fosters is a hit!

    Things definitely look good for The Fosters. I wish Twisted would see some ratings gains in the next couple of weeks too. It’s a really good show that deserves higher ratings.

    The Fosters is doing better than Switched at Birth in the demos. Great to see them both doing well.
