UPDATED: I hear that ABC Family has canceled freshman drama The Nine Lives of Chloe King after one season, while giving a back 12 order to another freshman, The Lying Game. Both are based on Alloy books and have been soft in the ratings. Nine Lives opened in June with 2.2 million viewers. The Lying Game launched last month with 1.4 million viewers. ABC Family’s breakout summer hit, Switched at Birth, has been renewed for a second season.
