Tuesday Final Nationals: ‘Pretty Little Liars’ with On-Par Return to Freeform

For the second consecutive evening, three networks had a share of prime time victory. CBS was Tuesday night’s most-watched network with an average of 11.27 million viewers. A 2-hour edition of “The Voice” helped put NBC in front among adults 18-49 (1.5 rating/6 share) and adults 25-54 (1.9/6).

And, a “2017 NBA Playoff” doubleheader of Game 2s — Chicago at Boston (3.37 million viewers), followed by Utah at L.A. Clippers (3 million viewers) — made TNT tops among adults 18-34 (approx. 1.3 rating).

The start of the final stretch of episodes of Freeform’s “Pretty Little Liars” returned on the night with 1.33 million viewers and a 0.65 rating among adults 18-49, off a bit from its season 7 premiere telecast (1.43 million/0.67 adults 18-49 on June 21, 2016) but on par with its summer 2016 episode run average. Its lead-out, the series debut of “Famous in Love” (653,000 viewers/0.30 adults 18-49 rating) drew similar viewer data to the summer 2016 launch of “Dead of Summer” but with a slightly improved rating among adults 18-49 (0.30 vs. 0.23).
