      (Late response, but in any case…) Ratings are always relative to the show, network and time slot(s) in question, so PLL may justify its existence given those aspects while BoP needs higher ratings to satisfy what the network wants/needs for the block it is set in. Simple as that. (That does, unfortunately, leave some shows on while killing off perhaps better quality ones, but there you have it…).
