Updated with the latest ratings for Chasing Life.

There’s a lot of data that ABC Family execs look at when deciding whether to renew or cancel a TV series but ratings are a major factor. Here’s an updated listing of all of their recent/current primetime scripted shows.

A couple of notes about these charts:
These figures are updated automatically as new ratings are released (usually a day or so after the broadcasts). The averages are based on the final national numbers (live plus same day viewing). For technical reasons, I have to resort them manually so feel free to let me know if I missed something.

The demo numbers, which are typically most important to the broadcast networks, aren’t quite as vital to cable channels because their audiences are usually much smaller. Demo numbers are typically reported using the 10ths decimal place (2.4, for example). In the averages, I’m using an extra decimal for easier ranking.

What do you think? Are you surprised by any of the ratings? Which shows should be doing better? Which one do you think will be cancelled next?

    I still don’t understand why Ravenswood and Twisted were canceled. It certainly could not have been the ratings.

      Because it lost most if it’s audience during its first season,Coukdnt keep half of PLLs audiences & had low ratings.It started out with better ratings than some of the shows that got renewed but it declined in ratings & viewership all season. Im bit sure if ABCFamily owned it or not mif they didnt theyd hsve no incrntive to renew it with low ratings.I also dont think its got crtitcal acclaim like Chading Life so that s another readon.Secondly quality or lack therif( why do they cancel the good shows but keep stupid ones?”) has nothing to do with with cancellation/renewals.
