    why is anyone pll fan bashing the fosters when pll is number 1 show and global phenomenon? yall need to calm down because you appear threatened and rattled when you have no reason to be. just appreciate the success of both shows.

  • PLLBORING

    PLL is so boring this season. If it reveals nothing big on the summer finale or if the read coat reveal disappoints me I’m definitely done with this show (even if I watched fom day one).

  • tasha

    any pll fan*

  • Brandy

    @imadiva also, Bunheads,Twisted,Dancing Fool,SpellMaggedeon ect would love to have 0.9 regularly.Plus, The Fosters won’t last five seasons unless the kids never age cause Callie/Brandon are 16-17 juniors in high school and Jesus & Marianna are 15 ,probably sohmores.It wouldn’t be realistic to have them stay the same for 4-5 seasons.
    @Tasha, I thought it got close to 2 million for the Midseason finale but not quite. MyBad.Also, I’m not bashing Fosters ,just pointing out some facts to imadiva ,who thinks PLLs ratings are bad and Fosters are good even though PLL is higher rated.I like and watch both shows.I’m not threatened .Also, I think it’s good Fosters grew mid to late season one part one but am curious if it would have those ratings on its own or with a show with lower/less stable ratings is all.Its a fact PLL,Switched do a title worse in fall due to increased competition .

  • tasha

    @Brandy

    the fosters could easily last 4-5 seasons. the same way 7th heaven lasted like 10 seasons. some kids may go to college in state (i mean they live in cali), some might not go to college at all. leaving the house doesn’t always mean leaving the show and it all has to end.

  • Eire

    I’m also not surprised that PLL dipped in the ratings and demos. I did not enjoy episode 4×10. And last night’s episode 4×11 was pretty boring. The only bright spot in the episode was Emily and Paige happily two step dancing with each other at the end. But unfortunately that scene was too short as usual. I don’t know why we had to see 10 minutes of Jake and Aria dancing in the episode. Basically I’m sick of Ezra and his baby mama drama that has no connection at all to the main mystery. I’m sick of Aria and dull boyfriends always taking up all of the darn screen time every week. Aria and her stories are never connected to the main mystery or theme of the show so they are not needed in my opinion. I’m not liking how badly Emily has been written in season 4.

    There’s not enough Paige on the show. Emily and Paige are a great couple but get way too little story and screen time. I’m sick of Toby’s dull story about his mother. Hannah is too stupid to live at this point. I like Caleb but he is leaving the show. Spencer has been ruined because of Toby. I don’t find any of the 4 Liars(Emily, Hannah, Aria, Spencer) to be very likeable or rootworthy anymore. There is also not enough Mona, Jenna, Melissa, etc in season 4. The writers and producers are taking way too long to reveal real answers to the audience. And the audience is really fatiguing and getting sick of being strung along when the writers/producers refuse to give real answers or any real motivation for all of the crazy stuff that has been going on in Rosewood the last 4 years. I’m sure the ratings will go up for the summer finale next week. However I have a feeling summer finale will be a disappointment like it has been in previous seasons with upcoming episodes of 4B dipping in the ratings. PLL needs to end after the 5th season. It is circling the drain and running on empty. IMO

  • Candy

    Couldn’t have said it any better myself. Bravo!

  • omabin

    Good for Suits but damn it Covert Affairs, go up already!

  • Brandy

    @Tasha, true but it’s not realistic that all of Callie,Brandon,Jesus,Marianna, will go to college in state and come home often or still live at home.7th still aged the characters and most of the original cast left well before the end(Matt,Mary,Simon)& were replaced by characters people didn’t care that much about and most felt it should’ve ended long before it did and the Orginal characters(Matt,Simon,Mary ) ended up going to college out of state,living or working out of state.Uless Fosters pulls PLL and never has Callie,Brandon,Jesus,Mariann graduate ,having two seasons be a year( like in PLL,and OTH seasons 1-4).Some have said M& J will/should end after season four due to Ryder nd Lennox being out of high school at that time.
    @imadiva also, PLL is one of only a very few abcfamily shows (secret Life,M&J) to reach 100 episodes.

  • Nathan

    Is ‘Red Coat’ going to be revealed in the 4A finale, or the Halloween special? Marlene tweeted the 4A finale, and the actresses who play Ali and Mona have said the Halloween special. Anyway, I really don’t expect much from the finale. I am starting to get sick and tired of waiting for answers. I actually stopped watching the show during season 3B due to how dull it was.

  • shelly

    At ram510 R&I did match last weeks performance.

  • Joey

    Can anyone explain how Catfish on MTV goes from not making the list last week to almost topping it this week?
    Also, what the heck is the show about and is it good at all?

  • DM

    @nathan
    Sasha Pieterse said that we would find out if Alison was dead or alive on Halloween, not who redcoat was.

  • Shantal

    @ Joey – Last week’s Catfish was a mid-season “reunion” show, not a normal episode.

    From wiki: Catfish: The TV Show is an American reality-based docudrama television series airing on MTV about the truths and lies of online dating. On the internet, a “catfish” is a person who creates fake personal profiles on social media sites — pretending to be someone more outwardly appealing than his/her true self, by using someone else’s pictures and false biographical information. These “catfish” usually intend to trick an unsuspecting person or persons into falling in love with them. The term “catfish” is derived from the 2010 documentary film, in which Schulman discovered the woman he’d been carrying on an online relationship who he thought was a 20-something woman was really a middle-aged mother of 4. MTV and the Catfish film’s producers, Schulman and his friend, filmmaker Max Joseph, help couples who have never met in real life. They want to know if the person they have had a seemingly deep emotional relationship with is legitimate or if they are, in fact, a “catfish.” Some couples have been together for a few months — others, for years.

  • Ben

    If you do not like PLL just stop watching it.. Its so annoying when people say it they hope it ends after season 5. If you want it to end stop watching and for you the series will be over…
    I in the meanwhile will continue watching and hopes it makes it to at least a season 8

  • TJ

    I’m glad the cable channels take other factors in to account other than the demo. Perception is ranked 23rd but has the most viewers of all the sows above it. It was a good episode as well. Suits rocked of course!

    I wasn’t suprised. I’m a fan of twisted but I wouldn’t watch that but I hope people who has not seen twisted watched it and the reruns. I can’t wait for summer finale!!!!!! Hope it does good!!

  • Bette

    It was hard to watch Rizzoli & Isles with the death of Lee Thompson Young.
    The show does not have the greatest writing but what makes it a top show
    is the actors. Lee Thompson Young always seemed like a sweet guy and was a big part of the show. Will miss him.

  • Nikki

    Twisted sucks every week.. they are so desperate for it to be good. Its funny. Noone likes that show. And PLL is doing just fine.

  • I luv nickelodeon

    @Nikki
    Shut up… It doesn’t suck each week and if your saying “no one watches this show” then you clearly don’t see the picture. Twisted gets a good amount of viewers every week plus it does really good on twitter (trends all the time) so just stop and face it twisted is a way better show then the lying game (even if you didn’t mention it). I’m sick of all the people that say twisted sucks, cause it clearly doesn’t if people are watching.
