ABC Family Cancels "Jane by Design" Amid Slew of Renewals
By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- ABC Family has passed on a sophomore run for its freshman drama "Jane by Design."

The news, as first reported by THR.com, comes on the heels of today's renewals of "Melissa & Joey," "Baby Daddy" and "Switched at Birth" as well as a back-order pick-up to "Bunheads."

"Jane" and the recently wrapped "Make It or Break It" are the network's least-watched scripted series this year, however a thin margin of 300,000 viewers separates seven of the nine entries.

ABC Family's year-to-date averages among total viewers (in millions):
2.605 - "Pretty Little Liars" (22 episodes)
1.819 - "Switched at Birth" (12 episodes)
