    @Nikki and @jenna. ya’ll are full of %#^4. Ravenswood sucks. but ya’ll put down Twisted when it was airing and its ratings were way better than ravenswood. enjoy it for the two episodes that it will do well with after PLL. (and yeah it will air for five, but will prove to be a bust after two)

  • Alan

    At least Ravenswood made it to the list this time, at the bottom, but it did lol

  • SP

    Wow,The Daily Show with Jon Stewart got a .8 rating and yet not a single Cable News show from the main news netwroks made the Top 100…not even O’Reilly.

  • iSayso

    Oh, YUKKITTY YUK YUK, PLL and Ravenswood are BOTH absolute TRASH!

  • Nikki

    @ marie thats because Twisted pulled the SAME ratings airing after PLL. Ravenswood airs by itself and get these ratings. When it airs after PLL it will pull .6 and .7 which Twisted did only a couple of times. Even with PLL as a lead in Twisted couldnt keep its head above water. Ravenswood is a better show, and the only reason people arent watching is because of the “Haleb” relationship. Which is extremely stupid.
    I hope the network realizes its not because the shows bad but because fans think they have pull. They shouldnt have any.. its silly and childish the way PLL fans are acting. Ravenswood is really very good. It should be given a fair shot. Twisted is trash.. i dont understand how it got its back order. ughh.

  • Charles

    When you say “viewership million’ and the number is 4173, doesn’t that mean 4173 million? That, I believe, is over 4 billion. Don’t you mean 4.173 million?

  • Candy

    Id like to have whatever jenna and nikki are on when I see the Glee ratings. I don’t see how Twisted is any better/worse than ravenswood/lying game quality/story wise. Theyre all of the same flavour, trying, but failing at becoming the next PLL

  • FishHOOKEDherO

    porter ridge baby!

  • Ami

    @ Nikki: You insist that Ravenswood and Twisted perform the same and I have to disagree (though at this point we might as well just agree to disagree). As I mentioned before, without the premiere (which was intrinsically tied to PLL’s special episode), Ravenswood does worse on its own. However, I do think that it’ll probably do slightly better than Twisted’s 1A when it returns in January. I’d like to think that people are watching it specifically because of Haleb though. Tuesday’s episode was Ravenswood’s best (after the premiere) in total viewers and I think Hanna’s appearance definitely had something to do with that.

    And as a belated reply to your response last week, Twisted will actually run after PLL, save for the last two episodes. Personally I think it’s ridiculous that Ravenswood and Twisted are competing in the first place. Anyone should be able to reasonably conclude that Twisted DOES require PLL as its lead-in because it’s an original show that isn’t tied by a book series or another series in and of itself so it was to be expected that it wouldn’t haul great numbers in its first run because it’s building up an audience. Obviously it was promising enough that ABCF gave it a back-order otherwise it would’ve been axed. It’s definitely “do or die” in February though.

    And I’m a fan of both shows, though I’m drawn to Twisted more because of its inclusion of diverse characters and the psychological aspect. Both shows have their flaws, some more glaring than others, but I think they’re both good.

  • Eire

    Ami, very well said. It is a big disappointment that Ravenswood only managed an anemic and pathetic 0.4 in the much coveted (18-49) demo. I guess the Haleb pimping did not work. Ravenswood is a flop. The ratings and more importantly the demos have been very low every week. It has been a flop show since the beginning. The show is DOA.

  • Nikki

    Ami but see the problem is Twisted hasnt had to be on its own. Its always aired after PLL. The point i am trying to make is Twisted pulled .4s and .5s AFTER PLL and yet Ravenswood is pulling those same ratings on its own. With no PLL. If Twisted was to air on its own without PLL it wouldnt pull the ratings Ravenswood does on its own. PLL isnt going to be on forever to save Twisted. Dont get me wrong i do believe Ravenswood was supposed to be a new hit for the network.. and that it isnt. But its got the potential to air on its own, once it gets its groove going and silly fans stop being hurt about “Haleb” it will stabalize and probably perform like Switched at Birth does. Which isnt great but stable enough to stick around. Twisted doesnt have that ability. Are you seeing where im coming from? Understand what i mean, and why i say it. And im not trying to be mean or nasty so please show the same respect back. Not Ami but some of the others on here.

  • Ami

    But the key difference is what Ravenswood is (a spin-off) and what Twisted isn’t (a spin-off). Everyone knew Twisted was getting PLL as a lead-in by default to build its audience whereas there was already an expected audience for Ravenswood and it underperformed. Basically, this discussion shouldn’t even be a thing because Twisted and Ravenswood were created with two different purposes and two very different expectations in mind. But TPTB at ABCF are obviously scrambling to correct this oversight, but at the expense of one good show at the end.

    Though I do ask that you not refer to Twisted as trash, if we’re talking about respect. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea but a lot of people enjoy it for different reasons and they’d like to see it stick around.

  • Kit

    there are reasons why Ravenwoods isn’t working out as expected compared to PLL eventhough they have the same executives. 1stly the storyline. PLL started from a good book series. 2ndly the cast. Ever wondered why certain individual repeatedly get nominated for awards . think TeenChoice or even PeoplesChoice and others. These are called choice award for a reason and why the certain individuals are the choice of viewers. everyone could argue who their favorites are but opinion here are only representative of a very small percentage of viewers . If TPTB do not respect the viewers opinion clearly as shown, the viewership suffers. Like selling any product, you can’t create something that viewers don’t like, it’s like forcefeeding and people tune out.

  • Nikki

    Ami fine i will refrain from calling Twisted trash. I watched every episode of Twisted and in my opinion its acting isnt good, the story isnt very beliveable, and the writing is poor. I found myself falling asleep during episodes. And i like shows like this.. i just cant get into Twisted. And i was only watching for jake from the secret circle. I do agree that Ravenswood isnt making the expectations ABCF was expecting, but i dont believe its worse off then Twisted. ABCF has to find a show that can stand alone once PLL is gone and i dont believe Twisted is that show. When they annouced Ravenswood it was very talked about on the internet. People were looking forward to it. The supernatural part of the show is very good, the story behind the show is very good. The Curse is a very interesting part to the show. The acting isnt great besides Caleb and Miranda. But i havent really seen of the others in anything so im sure they are just getting into a groove. The writing is great MK is awesome at what she does. Im expecting great things to come.

  • Nikki

    And from what i understand the network wasnt happy with Twisteds writing because they recruited the show runner from The Lying Game. That was a good show.. i was sad to see it go. But yeah Twisted needs help, even with 1 half of the season airing already people still dont seem interested in the show. Maybe with a new show runner they can save it but i think in my opinion if it comes down to Twisted or Ravenswood Twisted will be sacrficed.

  • Ami

    Well, as it stands now, neither Twisted nor Ravenswood is particularly ready to stand on its own, which is why both of them are running after PLL next year. I can admit that the writing did take a nosedive for Twisted but I find the premise very promising and the social conversations layered underneath to be very refreshing.

    It’s one thing for the show to be talked about on the Internet and then have the ratings reflect poorly. Nielsen’s study has shown that there isn’t really a huge correlation between social media presence and ratings, and I think Ravenswood proves that. The writing for Ravenswood is pretty good, I can admit that (though the last two episodes had me side eyeing everything more than a few times).

    ABCF didn’t explicitly state the reason why they brought in Charles Pratt Jr as a showrunner for Twisted. I actually thought it was a rather poor decision because TLG’s numbers weren’t improving with time and the way he wrote some of his characters was problematic.

    Since ABCF appears to be putting Twisted and Ravenswood in a death match situation, I’m saving all hard conclusions for January and February. I’m pretty confident Twisted will do better in 1B, seeing that there’s been a wave of new fans since the show’s been up on Netflix.

  • Nikki

    Your right neither show is ready to stand on its own. But yet Ravenswood has been. Its not standing well.. but its been on its own besides the very 1st episode. They both need PLL as a lead in to see any improvement. But Ravenswood has only aired 5 episodes to Twisteds 10 (i think). Ravenswood need a chance to prove itself.

    And im glad you willing to agree that Ravenswoods writing is good. Because it is. MK is very good at what she does. Its not as good as PLL because shes had 4 years to develope that show and those characters. Plus she had the books as guides. Ravenswood just needs time. Come January there will be a clearer picture.

    The lying game had a hard time keeping stories going.. that was really the only problem i saw with that show. They had so much stuff going on in that show it was hard to keep everything straight. But it was a pretty good show, the acting was very good in that show.

    Your right the network has been putting them against eachother. And thats not fair, but i guess thats how it works. And i agree we cant really give a good assumption till January, but i just have this feeling ABCF is more invested in Ravenswood.

  • Ami

    FYI: Brett Drier (actor who plays Luke Matheson on Ravenswood) says that they’ve wrapped up filming and news of a backorder will be finalized in January. So I’m guessing the first two/three episodes in January will be extremely critical.

  • Ami

    It does feel that ABCF is more invested in Ravenswood, and for good reason. We’ll just have to see if they’re willing to cash in on that investment come January.

  • Nikki

    Well i hope they stick with it and give it a chance. Im enjoying the show.. they canceled the other 2 shows on the network i watched. I watch PLL, The Fosters, Switched at birth, and Ravenswood. Its sad im in my 20’s with a 6 year old. lol but i just like the quality and the stories with these shows. Well PLL i started watching when i was younger so i have a lot of time invested plus its a good show too. Either way January is very important for Ravenswood, i hope the ratings tick up and i think they will. And thanks for the info about the final decision on a back order i didnt see anything about that yet.
