    Justified settling in to it’s usual range; 0.8-1.0. Didn’t get it’s usual bump at the beginning of the season, just went right to mid season ratings. I guess everyone that’s going to be onboard already is.

  • John A

    Great for PLL. Up in demo and up alot in viewers.

  • Dillan

    Teen Mom 2 still MTVs #1 show even after 5 seasons. Great numbers for the premiere.

  • John A

    ID shows do well on Tuesdays ive noticed.

  • ABCFamilyFan

    I think ABC Family needs to lower their expectations on what a show can do after Pretty Little Liars. No show has been able to do really well and although I don’t think boycotts work I do think people will begin to realize that everything after Pretty Little Liars gets axed (The Nine Lives of Chloe King, Jane By Design, The Lying Game) and wont even bother with the post-Pretty Little Liars show if they keep cancelling whatever airs after it.

    If Twisted can do similar to what it did this summer they should renew it, at least for another 10 episodes. Putting on new show after new show isn’t working, and even though most people don’t pay attention to ratings, it’s hard not to notice how many shows have aired in the slot in such a short amount of time.

    As for Ravenswood, the bright side is that it’s doing similar to how it does without the Pretty Little Liars lead-in. It’s not the Pretty Little Liars size hit they wanted, but at least it’s a show that can get okay ratings on its own without a lead-in. It’s smart for them to have programming year-round and I doubt many new shows would be able to match the ratings of Ravenswood with no lead-in in the fall.

    I would renew Twisted and give it more time to grow after Pretty Little Liars, renew Ravenswood to air in-between seasons of Pretty Little Liars. I would use Switched at Birth and The Fosters to launch new shows (The Fosters doesn’t need the Switched at Birth lead-in anymore)

  • j

    Okay? Ravenswood is like the worst rated drama they’ve put on this decade.

  • Ami

    I’m not too surprised Ravenswood didn’t make the list. That dip from last week was a definite indicator.

  • cimmer

    But if Opposite Worlds is at 0.5 why isn’t it on the list? Also, OWN must be very happy with the Haves and the Have Nots

  • Chris

    FX would certainly revisit the next season of Justified being the last, if the ratings were better–it has not been canceled, they’re just saying they think next season is probably it.

    So the ratings matter, but I’m good with them staying around where they are, because the show is starting to lose steam creatively, and it’d be a shame to see it jump the shark to squeeze out a few more eps. Six seasons is fine.

  • Ami

    @ABCFamilyFan I agree, for the most part. PLL has never been an effective lead-in and perhaps never will be. As for Ravenswood, on the other hand, I don’t think it can stand on its own. I predict that it’ll start consistently performing under a 0.5 in the 18-49 (like it did last week) and that’ll make it the lowest-rated show ABCF’s scripted drama in the current lineup. If ABCF’s okay with accepting that they won’t be able to replicate PLL’s numbers with shows of a similar genre, then they’ll be fine with renewing both Ravenswood and Twisted. Seeing as they’ve gotten a new president, I would hope that they’ll reconsider how they do things.

  • Shepherd

    @cimmer

    But if Opposite Worlds is at 0.5 why isn’t it on the list? Also, OWN must be very happy with the Haves and the Have Nots

    The red text clearly states that this list is compiled from the top 100 shows in 25-54. If a show doesn’t make that list, then you wont see it here regardless of its 18-49 numbers.

  • DM

    I don’t see either Ravenswood or Twisted coming back next season. Ravenswood has already proven that it cannot stand on its own at all. I’m sorry, but a 0.4 is NOT “standing on its own.” The fact that its premiers did ok only after PLL but tanked the rest of the the episodes no matter what is on before it shows that people clearly are not interested. Twisted getting consistent 0.5s behind PLL is also a bad sign. It’s getting the same ratings that TLG got and that got cancelled. If it keeps up this trend when it comes back in February, it will most likely follow the same path. The true test for it will be how it does after PLL ends its run.

  • Rebecca

    Good for Cougar Town, but I wonder if it would have been doing slightly better if it had stayed on ABC. I’m glad TBS saved the show, though. I just wish last season would be available to buy on DVD (can’t find it, and I own the other seasons). Loved the puppies and the neighbor’s crazy models in this week’s episode.

  • cimmer

    My apologies @ Shepherd, but I’m not good with the numbers and thought that Opposite Worlds ratings would have put them on the list under the far column 18-49 regardless? And I know I’m being dense here, but the list is the top shows 25-54 and then put in order of their 18-49 ratings rankings? Now am I getting it? So Opposite Worlds could have the 0.5 in the 18-49 but because it didn’t do well in the 25-54 it’s not on the list. I think I get it, but I’m not sure I understand the reason for it, if that makes sense. The scary part is it’s probably been that way a number of times and I’ve missed it, wouldn’t be a bit surprised, thank you.

  • Kissan

    PLL was good yesterday but they have GOT to tone down these relationship storylines. One of the girls just broke up with her boyfriend just two weeks ago and now this week she’s already kissing another guy. Another one of the girls dumped her current boyfriend for her ex boyfriend. Seriously if they keep on doing that I’m quitting the show. Us PLL fans have also never really got good answers either. I still have a question from two seasons ago that has never been answered. They really need to end this show next season.

  • Ron

    TLG actually did better behind PLL than twisted and ravenswood.It got more .6’s than either one of them but started to decline after episode 5.Still bad but it was in it’s second season but Ravenswood and Twisted are in their first.

  • Shepherd

    @cimmer

    Yea, I think you’re getting it now. The reason is that they only get the list of top 100 25-54 shows. It has viewer information as well as 18-49 information, but still only the top 25-54 list. They rank them here according to 18-49 so that this list is inline with the other ratings we see on the site, and because 18-49 is the best indication of C3 ratings.

  • Shepherd

    @cimmer

    It’s always been that way since I’ve been coming here (last 6 seasons or so). At least as far as I remember.

  • Ram510

    At least Cougar Town is up this week

  • Jillian

    Wait. So Opposite Worlds and Ravenswood were beat by Gilligans Island? Huh? Is that right?
