Top Ten ABC Family Shows

The Top TenXW

1Pretty Little Liars

This is the best show ever because its there are many twists like we thought noel or jenna's the a but all of the sudden we know mona's the first A reveal. We never thought its mona because she also receives received like messages from A during season 1. Its the best show because many girls like me never thought toby was A too, which give me a stress. This show is also interesting because the producers like giving us a math test where we need to solve alison's death or if she's not we need to watch this show for proofs if she's not really dead. I think many teens can watch this show because this show's giving us how dangerous it is to keep a secret like we can get in a trouble or someone might revenge us if we tell secrets. We need to vote PLL!

This is one of the best shows ever I mean its amazing! There are so many twists to the story. Nothing is ever traight falword.
I love it as well because when you find somthing out it just normaly leads to mare questions! Love it

I got hooked.. I started reading the books and loved them. I really wanted to start watching the T.V. show but it was to far along to JUST start watching it. So we got netflix :) I watched all of the 3 seasons that netflix had in a little more than a week with my sister. Haha we stayed up til 4 in the morning watching Pretty Little Liars! Once we got done with what netflix offered we could finally start watching it on abc family on tuesday nights :) I never miss an episode! It really is the best show ever. I never know what is going to happen next! I really don't know what to do anymore when season 4 ends! I cannot wait until january when season 5 begins! If you don't watch Pretty LIttle LIars, you are really missing out! Spoby <3 Haleb

It sucks it is just a copy off of every horror movie they ever made except not scary

2The Fosters

Just an amazing show. Good story line, good acting by the characters, and it has the potential to be one of the best shows on ABC Family. The show itself is funny, but serious at the same time. The teenage problems they face can sometimes be used to relate to the audience.

I recommend people to watch it! It's much more than it seems. And, just because it doesn't involve some crazy plot twist/mystery like almost every other show on ABC, doesn't mean it's not worth watching! A nice show that doesn't need to involve murders, mysteries, or lies.

When I finished watching Pretty Little Liars I started watching The Fosters and I thing it is an amazing show. Both Pretty Little Liars and The Fosters are great so if you haven't watched them yet I suggest you should because they're amazing shows that will get you hooked up till you watch it till the end.

This show is amazing. It has the power to grab your heart and never let it go. Every time I watch this show, it's like coming home. The characters are so so real yet so so loveable, and the relationships between all of the characters, not just the romantic ones, just give you explosions of butterflies in your stomach. This show has the potential to be one of the best shows of this generation. I can't wait to see what they do next.

Great actors., sherri and teri work well together. A show that needs to be seen. As I've heard and seen, it has changed many lives

"Twisted" is such a GREAT show! I hope this show has a long run on ABC Family. It certainly deserves it. It's definitely become one of my preferred shows. It's intriguing and interesting and mysterious. There's so much suspense built into the story and between the characters. There's so much you just can't predict so it just keeps you guessing. The plot of every episode keeps you entertained. Also the friendships and romantic relationships are awesome. There's the perfect chemistry among the characters. You definitely feel everything that's going on. They've done really well with the writing and choosing the actors they've chose. EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS SHOW JUST WORKS! LOVE IT.

I like the characters of Danny and lacey. The potential the storylines can have. I just want better execution in the writing on portraying each character as equals and sticking to the premise that the produces said the show was about Danny Desai reconnecting with his childhood best friends and the basis of the show is the friendships. I need to see the Lacey being treated equally to Jo (show her family and her story, not jo's, centered around them, so her having a life outside of Danny and Jo, she has done more things than Jo so treat her equally since she is a main character) I vote for this show because the idea and premise was promising. I just want better execution of those ideas, not revolving around Jo the whole time, every episode, but each character equally.

This is my absolute favourite show. It has such a great story line and is so intriguing, there is never a boring moment. I would honestly pay for this show to be renew because it is that good. The relationships and friendships make you smile and wanting more and Avan Jogia is in it so I think it should be a given to watch this show. THere are so many unpredictable things around the corner and it is just so bloody fantastic. The whole show just is written so incredibly well and the actors do it justice to the T. LITERALLY THIS SHOW IS PERFECT AND THERE SHOULD MOST DEFIANTLY BE ANOTHER SEASON IF NOT 100000000. BEST SHOW.

I LOVE the show and it shouldn't had the cliffhanger

4Switched at Birth

Never expected to like a show from ABC Family, since I'm not a teen anymore. But with SAB, it's just different. Interesting story, great actors and characters, really fun to watch, there are a lot of interesting and different than what you usually get storylines every week.

Very interesting story... Good story telling... Very best drama.. Good acting, direction. Everything is ally good about it and best is it keeps one interested in the story.

I also really loved Jane by Design and Make it or Break it. But of the currently airing shows this is my favorite. It has really open my eyes to how beautiful sign language is.

It sucks. It way to dramatic... It gets BORING after 1 season.

5The Lying Game

Really an amazing show. I am so impressed with it. The makers of the show clearly take their work seriously. The show is surprisingly realistic, especially for a show about twins who switch places.

Love this show its so amazing

6The Secret Life of the American Teenager

It was so sad to see this show end like it did she didn't marry Ricky and she left john but at least he was with his father and she just goes to collage. I wish it did not end like that I was literally crying when they graduated and she told Ricky she was not marrying him and when she just walked out the meat shop door and how is she gonna basically go live with been when she was engaged to him but broke it off and her friends kinda left her in the dust. BUT I LOVED THIS SHOW SO MUCH

This show was the beast out there and I can't believe it's over...5 years this shows been on and I never stopped watching it. I even watched it from the beginning on Netflix. I'm GANA MISS. IT SO MUCH! Good bye secret life...

I got hooked WAY to long after it started! Thanks for this it makes me feel like someone else in the world enjoys this DAMN AMAZING show!

This show will always have a special place in my heart

7Baby Daddy

I love Baby Daddy. It's filled with cute guys (and girls) and it mixes comedy with also some family love. I love the first episode so much when he is alone with baby Emma it is too sweet and all around amazing

I Love this show so much it like he started out as a one night stander and a drunk with no responsibilities and then he grew up and started to take care of his beautiful daughter Emma. Ben is such a good dad

I love this show! I can't wait to watch season 5

Baby daddy is the best abc film I have watched. can't wait for season 5

8Jane By Design

Amazing is the closest word to describe this beautiful, majestic show. Fashion, drama in high school. Comparing two different worlds that are so connected to each other in ways no one could have imagined. Please keep this show going. It is sophisticated and beautiful! I am completely impressed and I adore every minute of it.

Amazing Show of all time. I wish it was not cancelled. This is my favorite show next too Lying game and people 3333 PLEASE BRING THIS SHOW BACK PLEASE!

They can't just leave us hanging like that, I mean the story is clearly unfinished.

Please bring it back

9Make It or Break It

BEST. SHOW. EVER. Enough said. Why was it canceled is beyond me...

Best show you will EVER WATCH. I watched it NON STOP on netflix and I wanted to be apart of that life I became obsessed and you will too

It is the BEST THING I'VE EVER SEEN! I just finished it about 1 week ago and I'm so sad because I can't find anything as good as make it or break it! At the beginning, its not that interesting but after the third episode I BECAME OBSESSED! How can they cancel a fabulous show like this?! I'm still so mad that there are no more episodes.

I would anything to have some more episodes. Personally I think that they should finish it at season 4 where it would show their life back at the rock after the olympics and the end of their careers

10The Nine Lives of Chloe King

Nine Lives of Chloe King was the best show in the world. It was original and it always left you wondering what will happen next. Especially the finale. God, ABC Family either needs to stop making good shows or stop cancelling them. My vote is for the stop canceling. THIS SHOW ROCKS! #1!

I really love the show the nine lives of chloe king and I don't like that there canceling it I think I'm gonna die if it goes away because its my favorite thing to watch

Good show so sad abc family keeps cancelling great shows like kyle xy and makes up crappy un cool shows

Best show why they cancel

Amazing. Never has ABC Family offered a show with so much depth. Both guys and girls could get into the show and everyone was able to find a character that they connect with. Why must ABC Family always let go of the gems they create and instead bring in trash like Pretty Little Liars or Secret life.

Best show ever. I have never felt such an emotion watching any other ABC family serie. It's moving and amusing. You are so likely to connect with any character and eventually love it. Actually, every character has its own personality, makes mistakes and grows up. Also, the plot evolves constantly through a deep and funny moments at the same time. You definitely will regret not being part of their greek system!


It's so amazing and I feel like I know them so well!

13Once Upon a Time

I love this show! It is so awesome! ☺☺☺

This show is new. But it's turning out good

Number 16?! ARE YOU SERIOUS? This show is awesome! The fairy tales have so much more depth! Mysterious! It should be second on the list.

It is best show ever and I am only in my early teens but love it the story line is amazing

This show is so refreshing! It has great characters, amazing talent and a brilliant story line! It's touching, comical, funny and it's real. Reaches a lot to lots of people in the audience. Not to mention the awesomeness of Michelle's sarcasm =) An amazing creation from Amy Sherman-Palladino

Please don't cancel this excellent show. It is a bright spot in an otherwise boring lineup. Smartly written, funny and poignant all in one show. The girls are so talented and Sutton Foster is fantastic. This show just needs more advertising sent it's way. If more people were aware of how good it is it would be in your top 3. Looking forward to the next season. Sincerely. Diane Deighton

I really hope more episodes are released. This is the best show ever! Enough said.

Brilliant inspiring show. Please, bring it back

16Kyle XY

I absolutely live Kyle xy! I have NO idea why they would cancel the best show ever! It's so relatable! It has romance and mystery but it's not like a the other cliche shows out there! Don't get me wrong I like those too but Kyle was different! He was so cute, and funny, smart, relatable... What was I saying? Anyway, there have been SO many times in real life where I have literally said "I need Kyle! " No joke! I have watched this show, the whole series, three times. Plus certain episodes even more than that! Plus I got my entire family to watch it to! They LOVE it! I really don't understand why abc family would cancel this show! It was AMAZING! And if you don't think so, I think you need to visit a doctor!

This show is amazing it would be #1 if they continued

#1 for ever! Best show of ABC Family! Too bad they cancelled, still a truly unforgettable show, the way you can relate to the characters, the way the story develops and not to mention how great the actors were, ABC 'Jumped off a cliff' when they decided to cancel this amazing show, there are still good shows, but this one is off the charts!

Simply the best show ever.

It was a good show

This was an AMAZING show. SO sad it ended. Hot guuys, great scripts, and an plain out AWESOME show. They REALLY should bring it back. Like at least a reunion movie or something!

I wish they made a season 2 of this because I'm so in love with the show.
