    Very good to PLL! It was a great episode. I hope the writers don’t play the same thing they did with Toby’s reveal. I think the halloween episode in october will have good numbers too.

  • stiller

    @Liar

    The 1.9m tweets is a record for ALL of television history, not just PLL

  • Angie

    I like Covert Affairs, but it’s not my favorite show. Those characters are just so cold. I can’t imagine someone jumping into this series late, and trying to get invested in these guys.

  • A

    TV by the numbers has missed the Twisted ratings a few times. Not sure why. Check Futon Critic for the much more positive scoop.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    @A: It’s not a positive or negative thing, just a confusing thing! it’s the same reason we “miss” anything in these posts. Even though we post the 18-49 rating, the list is the top 100 shows of the day sorted by 25-54. There are times shows that performed better with 18-49 than some of the shows on our list which didn’t perform better with adults 25-54.

    We used to also get the same PDF file that Travis forwards to The Futon Critic, but it typically came at least a couple of hours after the “top 100″ list we use & by the time we’d get around to adding the missing shows someone had already added them in the comments.

    @stiller

    Thank you very much!

  • daviddavid

    PLL was great on Tuesday and it reallly deserves the ratings. Perception was good to and good to see it up in viewers. R and I is way up to.

  • Alec

    @Weez

    Yes, Suits will return in most likely January like last time with the final 6 episodes of Season 3.

  • One eye

    PLL awesome

  • Mike

    No wonder why Pretty Little Liars ratings went up…they are going on hiatus. Move along, nothing to see here.

  • Samuel

    The final 6 episodes of Covert Affairs Season 4 are airing behind White Collar I believe.

    I think USA will take a look at the final 6 as an indication of whether it will be renewed or not. But Covert Affairs was renewed on a 0.8 average last year. I doubt it’s too far off that this season. So I’d say it has a good chance of renewal, if only to give it a shortened final season. (10 or so episodes).
