ABC Family TV Show Ratings (updated 7/1/15)

ABC Family ratingsABC Family has had a couple very successful scripted shows — and a lot more of the less-successful kind. Which are your favorites? Which of the current TV series will be cancelled or renewed for another season? Stay tuned!

Scripted ABC Family shows listed: Baby Daddy, Chasing Life, The Fosters, Melissa & Joey, Mystery Girls, Pretty Little Liars, Ravenswood, Stitchers, Switched at Birth, Twisted, and Young & Hungry.

Updated with the latest ratings for Stitchers and Pretty Little Liars.

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.


Note: If you’re not seeing the updated charts, please try reloading the page. You can also view them here and here.

You can see other networks’ rankings here:
ABC | CBS | The CW | FOX | NBC | TNT

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?

    Young And Hungry Mystery Girls Meilssa And Joey Are great shows but they don’t fit in my schedule all because the cw network airs their shows on the same time while young and hungry mystery girls Meilssa and Joey or on they’re also on demand free by the network where I can watch them their I am the reasons why that the raitings are bad in the begining I didn’t like them but now just watching this makes me laugh

    P.Little Liars Switched at Birth The Fosters Chasing Life are my favorite shows on the abc family i am so happy that all three of them are renewed for more seasons i was hoping for ravenswood to return for a backorder and renewed for a second season i was so upset that they canceled ravenswood

    Melissa & Joey Young & Hungry Mystery Girls would fit great over the weekend schedule so many more viewers can watch those shows

    My favorite right now is Chasing Life. I went into the show didn’t expect anything but it was a pleasant surprise. It’s my highlight on Tuesday nights. I hope it will get renewed for a second season.

    Twisted should be cancelled. The ratings kept dropping, and it only ever did marginally well when it was airing right after PPL. It’s a waste of space, and I’m sure the young cast can get better work elsewhere. Mystery Girls should also go. It’s on the wrong network. For quality, in my opinion, The Foster and Chasing Life are the best. Baby Daddy and Melissa & Joey are good too.

    I love most of the ABC FAM TV shows. They’re my guilty pleasure. Fosters, switched, chasing life, young and hungry and twisted. Hate that they’re broken up, season wise. Although I do like the fact that most will have holiday specials…..can’t wait! Hope all my faves get renewed!

    My favorite shows are The Fosters, Ravenswood and now Chasing Life. I think all three should remain – since the ratings on the network favorite PLL is faltering. Then what you will pull all shows and start again – I’m sure I will definitely stop tuning into this channel why bother.

    My 6 favorite shows I think need to be renewed is Melissa and Joey, Babby’s Daddy, Switched At Birth, Chasing Liberty, and Mystery Girls. I love all these shows. But my top 3 favorites is Melissa and Joey, Baby’s Daddy and Switched At Birth. I hope and pray all these shows are renewed. Expecially my top favorite 3.

      @Anonymous By Chasing Liberty do you mean Chasing Life?Chasing Liberty isn’t a tv show but I think it was a movie a few years ago.As for the others,MG ratings are really bad so it’ll most Likley be cancelled.Baby Daddy & M& J have been renewed for a fourth season.Switched at Birth -no word yet.
      I also like Switched,M&J,Chasing Life.

        Switched At Birth PLL Chasing Life M&J are my favorites too but i have no time to watch them on tv and the reason why is cw networks programming show air at the same so i DVR them and watch them on demand abc family count them but the abc family VP Tom Ascheim doesn’t count them
