Tuesday’s debut generated more than 1.3 million tweets by nearly 700,000 contributors, peaking at a rate of 30,000 tweets per minute. The series now accounts for the Top 5 most-tweeted TV series telecasts on record, with eight episodes amassing more than 1 million tweets
Pretty Little Liars ranked as Tuesday’s No. 1 telecast among women 18-34 (900,000), viewers 12-34 (2.1 million) and 12-34 females (1.8 million). It also was the No. 1 cable telecast in primetime in the 18-34 demo. An average of 3.2 million total viewers tuned in to join the search for the person who wanted to kill clique boss Alison, making it the No. 2 original cable telecast in overall audience (3.2 million) — just 100,000 viewers behind BET’s unveiling of Being Mary Jane (3.3 million).
Back in August, Pretty Little Liars clocked its biggest summer-finale crowd in viewers 12-34, 18-34, and 18-49, as well as total viewers (3.3 million). In the finale episode, the Liars got a riddle from “A” that sends them to Ravenswood, where one of them disappeared during a magic show, and a shocking discovery proved everything they thought they knew about “A” and the “A-Team” might be wrong and that the Liars may have just started World War A. You had to be there.
Raphael Sbarge (Once Upon A Time) has joined the cast of TNT’s drama Murder In The First as a series regular. Co-created by Steven Bochco and Eric Lodal, Murder In The First is a murder mystery set in contemporary San Francisco that centers on two SFPD homicide detectives, Terry Seagrave (Taye Diggs) and Hildy Mulligan (Kathleen Robertson), as they take on a case that seems more like a maze. Sbarge plays police inspector David Molk, who works alongside Seagrave. Sbarge, repped by Main Title and Domain, will be recurring on USA’s Necessary Roughness this summer.
