Jenn Deering Davis, Founder of TweetReach, said: "'Pretty Little Liars' consistently has one of the most engaged and active audiences in social media. Few shows see these levels of activity during their broadcasts, and almost none can compare to the sustained conversation 'Pretty Little Liars' drives on Twitter. The fact that fans were posting more than 25K tweets per minute in the middle of the show speaks to just how engaged viewers are throughout the hour-long episode."

Moreover, according to SocialGuide, "Pretty Little Liars" became the #2 "most social" TV series episode on record in terms of total unique tweeters (432,948), behind only the series' Summer finale in August 2012 (612,459), giving ABC Family the Top 2 'most social' TV telecasts ever.

· Powered by last night's special, and strong movie performances over the event's launch weekend, ABC Family's 14th annual "13 Nights of Halloween" event is off its best start in the network's history in Total Viewers (1.9 million), Adults 18-34 (578,000), Women 18-34 (426,000), Adults 18-49 (940,000), Women 18-49 (654,000), Viewers 12-34 (852,000) and Females 12-34 (656,000), standing as the #1 cable TV network in the daypart in the core female demos.
