Think last night’s Pretty Little Liars’s Season 4, Episode 13 Halloween special was big? You have no idea. ABC Family has released the ratings from October 22’s "Grave New World” and the show basically blew everyone out of the water.
The combined two-hour PLL Halloween/Ravenswood series premiere brought ABC Family its best Tuesday performance ever in three key demographics: adults 18-34, women 18-34, and women 18-49. Yes, performance best ever.
In addition, the show made ABC Family the number one network for women 18-34 and the top cable network for adults 18-34, adults 18-49, women 18-49, and viewers 12-34. That’s a whole lot of numbers, but we love them all.
For PLL’s Halloween episode specifically, “Grave New World” was the second most-watched telecast in ABC Family history for women 18-34 and adults 18-34.
As usual, Pretty Little Liars dominated on social media, as well. SocialGuide reports that “Grave New World” was the seventh PLL episode to get more than 1 million tweets — 1,160,813, to be specific. In fact, the show has the top four most tweeted episodes in TV history. (Yes, in the history of television. Ever.)
1. 1,892,028 tweets for Season 4’s summer finale, “Now You See Me, Now You Don’t”
2. 1,618,528 for Season 3, Episode 12: “The Lady Killer”
3. 1,585,973 for Season 3, Episode 24: “A dAngerous Game”
4. 1,268,938 for the Season 4 premiere, “A is for A-L-I-V-E”
The moral of the story: Pretty Little Liars is basically the best. Any other argument is invalid.
