Nominated for the 2nd consecutive year for Teen Choice's "Favorite Cable TV Drama" award, ABC Family's critically-"A"cclaimed and social-media favorite "Pretty Little Liars" was handily Tuesday's #1 TV telecast in Women 18-34 (1.2 million/3.5 rating), Viewers 12-34 (2.3 million/2.5 rating) and Females 12-34 (2.0 million/4.4 rating), the #1 cable TV telecast for the day in Women 18-49 (1.5 million/2.3 rating) and the #1 prime cable TV telecast Adults 18-34 (1.4 million/2.1 rating). Also impressive, among Adults 18-49 "Pretty Little Liars" beat FX's standout hit, "Justified," by a tenth of a rating point (1.4 rating vs. 1.3 rating).

The winter premiere became the series' #2 telecast on record in Adults 18-34 and its #3 telecast of all time in Adults 18-49 (1.8 million/1.4 rating), Women 18-49 and Women 18-34 (1.2 million/3.5 rating).

Jenn Deering Davis, Founder of TweetReach, said: "These kinds of volumes are normally seen in finales, after the season has time to build a larger fan base, not in the first episode of a brand new season. This is just one more indicator of how passionate and engaged in social media 'Pretty Little Liars' viewers are. And based on what we've seen over the past two years, their enthusiasm seems to be increasing season to season."

Moreover, according to SocialGuide, "Pretty Little Liars" holds the record for the Top 2 "most social" TV series episodes on record.

"The Lying Game" (9:00 - 10:00 p.m.)
