Pretty Little Liars Ratings

ABC Family drama has its biggest midseason finale yet, is TV's top show in some categories

ABC Family’s “Pretty Little Liars,” television’s top-rated drama this summer among young femmes, surged to season highs Tuesday — and in the process set another social-media record.

According to Nielsen, “Liars” posted its strongest summer finale in its four seasons to date in virtually all categories, including adults 18-34 (2.1 rating/1.4 million), women 18-34 (3.5 rating/1.2 million), adults 18-49 (1.4 rating/1.8 million) and total viewers (3.33 million).

Among all “Pretty Little Liars” telecasts to date, Tuesday’s summer finale ranks third in women 18-34 and 18-49, and is now the No. 4 telecast in ABC Family history among young women.

It was TV’s No. 1 show Tuesday in women 18-49 (tied with NBC’s “America’s Got Talent”) and adults 18-34, and cable’s No. 1 program in all under-50 female categories.

On the social media front, Social Guide reports that the “Now You See Me, Now You Don’t” season finale of “Pretty Little Liars” became the #1 most tweeted series episode in TV history, accruing nearly 1.9 million tweets by 637,000 unique contributors — and spiking to 70,000 during the show’s final minute.

Elsewhere Tuesday, OWN’s “The Haves and the Have Nots” hit more highs (0.7/2 in 18-49, 2.32 million viewers overall) one week from its first-season finale. Among women 25-54, its 1.44 rating made it Tuesday night’s No. 2 scripted cable original, behind only “Rizzoli & Isles” (1.4/4 in 18-49, 6.00m), which had its best scores since its season premiere in late June.
