    First of all the heat vs bulls game was a blowout. Secondly, who in the would compare nba regular season to thw nfl? The nfl is light years ahead of everything else including college football. But the nba ratings are certainly better tha mlb. About 5.4 million viewers and 2.5 demo for a regular season game on cable? That’s great. The highest rated baseball regular season game on cable was yankees vs red sox 2.9 million and 1.0 demo. Nba is way higher.

    For comparison sake, Twisted got a 0.5 or lower for 7 out of 10 episodes. The Fosters got a 0.5 or lower once.

  • Dave

    Wow at RVW! That has flop written all over it!

  • starship

    Guess Caleb will be going to PLL soon enough…

  • Norm

    Glad to see “Little People, Big World” premiered well. TLC should be happy with those numbers.

  • tv#1

    It’s really strange how ABC Family seems unable to launch another successful mystery series. You would think with the popularity of Pretty Little Liars they would be able to launch at least another moderately successful mystery/thriller show.

    Sadly even though I like both show I think Ravenswood and Twisted will end up getting cancelled. ABC Family will probably then moved forward with the Jamie Lee Curtis horror/thriller project they announced a while ago.

  • feinn

    Bringback The Lying Game :)

  • Bumblebee

    Pretty bad for Ravenswood, it really needs to have down much better in the women and teen demos (which it might have) to survive much past the initial episode order. OTOH Twisted aired behind PLL all its run and was airing during ABCF’s regular season, if this had been the same it probably would have done slightly better. Maybe PLL viewers don’t want to get caught up in another long running mystery series, that’s why I didn’t bother to watch passed the Halloween Special.

  • Melanie P.

    Glad the Miami Heat won last night. I must say, I was expecting it to be a closer game score though. Happy the NBA is back!! :)

  • Bella Bellini

    I’m surprised the PLL fan base didn’t give Ravenswood a chance. ABC Family must be disappointed after all that promotion.

  • mathew

    LOL bring back the lyinggame. I watch ravenswood its ok. b=But i think quality wise the lying game season 2 was way better than even pretty little liars. I will never watch twisted tho.

  • Rachel

    That is beyond bad for Ravenswood. ABc Family was obviously expecting better.

  • mathew

    I hope ravenswood doesnt go lower than 1 million… its better than twisted

  • rob60990

    Not surprised Ravenswood tanked. The only bad news is Caleb will probably be back soon.

    Modern Family’s best ratings so far in syndication.

  • mathew

    @rob60990 you dont like caleb?

  • Bumblebee

    *I’m surprised the PLL fan base didn’t give Ravenswood a chance. ABC Family must be disappointed after all that promotion*

    I think people did. That’s what the season finale, the Halloween ep and the pilot right after (which did fine) were all about. Most people who watch PLL have already given it a fair sample. That said it is only officially week 2 so there’s time. But they’re only airing 5 episodes before breaking so it won’t help trying to build momentum unless ep 5 is really spectacular.
