Ratings: “Pretty Little Liars” Finale Sets Season High In Demo, Trails Season Premiere In Viewers

News on viewership for the “PLL” finale.

Pretty Little Liars [Freeform]

Tuesday’s “Pretty Little Liars” finale did not draw spectacular ratings, particularly in comparison to numbers from previous seasons.

It did, however, set a season seven high in adults 18-49. It was the season’s second-most-watched episode in terms of overall live+same-day viewership.

According to live+same-day data posted by Showbuzz, the episode drew a 0.72 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 1.406 million overall viewers. The numbers comfortably top those of last week’s episode, which drew a 0.43 and 830,000.

The demo rating, moreover, represents a season high. The viewership figure trails that of the season premiere (1.429 million) as the second best in season seven.

Still, it is hard to view these numbers as a huge victory for a show that has long served as Freeform’s flagship. It was not until late in season four that an episode drew fewer than 2 million viewers, and it was not until late in season six that viewership below 1.5 million became a regularity for “PLL.”
