Switched at Birth | “This season sees dramatic changes in the lives of the Kennish and Vasquez families as a result of the verdict in the baby switch trial. Gilles Marini joins the cast in season two as a series regular.” (Click here for scoop on the Season 1 cliffhanger!)

Bunheads | “The new episodes pick-up a couple of months after Michelle has left Paradise to try and return to her former life in Las Vegas.”

Pretty Little Liars | “Radley Sanitarium has given Mona a clean bill of health and she is headed back to the halls of Rosewood High, much to the Liars’ dismay. With their former tormentor now back in their everyday life, Aria, Emily, Hanna and Spencer take very different views of the “new” Mona. Sure she made their lives a living hell, but is she really cured? And what other secrets could she be holding onto? It is up to Mona to prove to the Liars if she has changed or not.”

The Lying Game | “As the twins’ saga continues in Season 2, there are more surprises, secrets and lies. The girls’ recently revealed birth mother Rebecca (Charisma Carpenter) lures Sutton (Alexandra Chando) into her plans for the Mercer family. Emma (Chando) grows closer to Thayer, while still being drawn to Ethan, who has started to reconnect with Sutton. Kristin feels betrayed after Ted came clean about his long ago affair with Rebecca, but Ted might be hiding even more shocking revelations. And Mads connects with a mysterious new guy in town who brings a whole new level of secrets with him.”

  • I watch too much tv. Grateful that Bunheads is in a timeslot where I have no conflicts, can’t say the same about Pretty Little Liars and the The Lying Game

  • The Lying Game saw a nice ratings uptick in the second half of the first season. I hope the ten month break doesn’t hurt it’s ratings.

  • I was thinking the other day about Chloe King, I’m guessing it, like Kyle XY, didn’t get the ratings all these other shows are getting. So ready for more PLL and Bunheads!
