Good news, Pretty Little Liars fans! Not only was Season 3, Episode 12: “The Lady Killer” arguably the most shocking PLL finale ever, but a ton of people tuned in — and they had a lot to say about it online!
According to TV by the Numbers the finale pulled in almost 3 million viewers, which was a season high. It was also the most watched PLL summer finale yet. Even better: A large chunk of those viewers were in the show's target demo. It had especially good ratings in the categories of Women 18-34 and Females 12-34.
What's more, according to SocialGuide, the episode was the "the #1 'most social' TV series episode in history, breaking records with over 1.6 million comments." The episode generated over 709,000 tweets while it aired, with a peak of 36,000 PLL related tweets per minute. That's crazy!
It also means the show beat it's own record for volume of tweets, which was 645,000 tweets, and 32,000 tweets per minute during the Season 2 finale.
Or, to put it another way: PLL fans are awesome! Keeping tweeting, guys.
Catch the PLL Halloween special on Tuesday, October 23 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family.
