Between PRETTY LITTLE LIARS, MAKE IT OR BREAK IT, and WHITE COLLAR Tuesday nights are THE best TV night for me this summer. I even told my family not to call me between 8 and 10! Invite me somewhere, and I guarantee I will trump up a lame excuse not to be there, because I've got shows to watch!
I know I've already praised PLL and MIOBI in past entries (June 30 and Feb. 17, respectively), but I really can't say enough good things about these programs. ABC Family gets flak, I think, because people associate it with stuff like THE 700 CLUB and the preachy THE SECRET LIFE OF THE AMERICAN TEENAGER. (I was talking to a friend this weekend, who is a high school senior, and he astutely observed that "Everybody gets pregnant on that show. Even the mom!" LOL!) But the bulk of the network's original programming is just that: original.
