Top 10 Best ABC Family Shows

The Top Ten
1 Pretty Little Liars Pretty Little Liars is an American teen drama mystery thriller television series developed by I. Marlene King and is loosely based on the novel series of the same name written by Sara Shepard.

This is the best show ever because there are many twists. For example, we thought Noel or Jenna was A, but all of a sudden we found out Mona was the first A reveal. We never thought it was Mona because she also received messages from A during season 1.

It's the best show because many girls like me never thought Toby was A too, which gave me stress. This show is also interesting because the producers make it feel like a math test where we need to solve Alison's death or find proof if she's not really dead.

I think many teens can watch this show because it shows how dangerous it is to keep a secret. We can get into trouble or someone might seek revenge if we tell secrets. We need to vote for PLL!

2 The Fosters The Fosters is an American family drama television series created by Peter Paige and Bradley Bredeweg which first premiered in the United States on June 3, 2013 on the Freeform television network.

Just an amazing show. Good storyline, 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 relatable 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 or mystery like almost every other show on ABC, doesn't mean it's not worth watching! It's a nice show that doesn't need to involve murders, mysteries, or lies.

3 Twisted

I like the characters of Danny and Lacey and the potential the storylines can have. I just want better execution in the writing to portray each character as equals and to stick to the premise that the producers said the show was about: Danny Desai reconnecting with his childhood best friends and the basis of the show being the friendships.

I need to see Lacey being treated equally to Jo. Show her family and her story, not Jo's, centered around them. Show 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 were promising. I just want better execution of those ideas, not revolving around Jo the whole time, every episode, but treating each character equally.

4 Switched at Birth

SAB is a show like none other. Just when you think things are getting normal and everyone is finally settling down, something else happens. It's a real show that doesn't stray off into fairy tale land, schlocky teen drama, and unbelievable nonsense. I am surprised a major network didn't pick it up. This could be the next big family drama on TV, maybe even better than 7th Heaven, which held the previous record for the longest-running TV drama. SAB can go really far as long as the storyline stays as good as it has been.

5 The Lying Game

Honestly, one of my all-time favorite TV shows! And take it from me, I watch a lot of TV! I binge-watched the series and then learned it was cancelled. I understand it didn't get as many viewers as you'd have liked, but you could have done a special couple of episodes just to give the fans some closure.

Things like who Emma ended up with (my vote for Ethan), what happened when everyone found out about the twins, and what happened on the roof before Alec came through the roof - things like that because now I seriously want answers! Apart from unanswered questions, I loved this show so much and highly recommend it to anyone!

6 Boy Meets World Boy Meets World is an American coming-of-age sitcom created by Michael Jacobs and April Kelly that aired on ABC for seven seasons between September 1993 and May 2000. The series centers on Cory Matthews (Ben Savage) and his friends and family, as he progresses from childhood to adulthood. Episodes chronicle... read more

A great show that isn't only funny but also has meaning and good lessons. Sometimes the continuity is not that good, and some behavior from certain characters frustrates me, but it's really rare. This is my favorite sitcom ever, and I'm sad that there isn't much talk about it. It's underrated, and everyone knows Girl Meets World better, but honestly, GMW is nothing compared to BMW in my opinion.

No doubt the best TV show ever. Just simply amazing. Keeps you hooked and can't wait for the next episode.

OMIGOSH! Best show ever! I love Eric and Shawn the most. They're so dumb but yet super hilarious!

7 Baby Daddy Baby Daddy is an American sitcom created by Dan Berendsen that premiered on June 20, 2012 on ABC Family (later Freeform). The series follows Ben, a man in his twenties, who gets the surprise of his life when a one-night stand leaves his baby at his doorstep. Ben decides to raise his little girl with... read more

I love Baby Daddy. It's filled with cute guys (and girls) and mixes comedy with 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. 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 binge-watched all 3 seasons in about one week, and it's adorable! Can't wait for season 4 to come out.

8 Full House Full House is an American sitcom created by Jeff Franklin for ABC. The show chronicles a widowed father, Danny Tanner, who enlists his best friend and brother-in-law to help raise his three daughters.

This is a great show. I have watched almost all the episodes. Full House is about a dad who can't take care of his kids because his wife died, so he asks his friend and brother-in-law to help him. Once they move in and the family keeps getting bigger, it turns into a full house. If you enjoy this show, you should watch Fuller House. It is about one of the daughters' families in Full House. The plot is directionally the same. It's like an updated version of Full House.

An amazing show about a big family struggling with many different problems: bullies, child abuse, drinking, and even deaths of a loved one! A must-watch!

9 10 Things I Hate About You

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

10 Braceface Braceface is a Canadian/American animated series that aired on Teletoon in Canada, and on Disney Channel and ABC Family in the United States, as well as Fox Kids and then Pop Girl in the United Kingdom.

For those who didn't know, this aired on ABC Family from 2001-2003.

The Contenders
11 Friends Friends is an American television sitcom, created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, which originally aired on NBC from September 22, 1994, to May 6, 2004, lasting ten seasons. It now airs on Nick at Nite... read more

Best show! Show from the '90s about friends living in New York City and their lives!

12 The Secret Life of the American Teenager

This is a BOMB show. Probably the best show I've ever seen. I never get hooked on TV shows off Netflix, but I did with this one.

AMAZING show, watch it! You'll get hooked. This show is unreal. It will always leave you wanting more, just like it did to me in the last episode.

Love it so much. I mean, this show really speaks on the facts of what teens are facing nowadays. It is not easy speaking to your parents about sex, but you have to do it.

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

13 Melissa & Joey

I love this show so much. Just still waiting on it to come back on. Try to make it very fast. I'm ready to watch.

I love this show. Can't believe the way season 4 ended! They should start production again and make season 5.

I love Melissa and Joey. They're the best couple ever!

14 Once Upon a Time

This show is so amazing! It's starting to get old, so there are some mistakes in the plot, but I feel like I'll never get tired of it. The first seasons are always the best, but the new ones are also great, and that's rare in series that are on for more than 3-4 seasons. I just love how well-developed the characters are, and how good the plot twists are. Adam and Eddy are doing an awesome job! My heart's been broken more than once. I found myself crying and hyperventilating way too many times.

OUAT is a great show. I love the way they made fairy tales so much more interesting. I also love how they tell what happened before and after what the fairy tale books and movies tell you. I love how almost none of the couples in the show have their love all figured out. They are all struggling to figure out what they are feeling and who their true love is. There are also a lot of good-looking guys.

Overall, I think everyone who enjoys fairy tales with a twist should watch it. I think OUAT is the best show on ABC and my favorite show ever. I totally fangirl about OUAT. The actors are all so good too. Best show on ABC!

15 Sabrina, The Teenage Witch Sabrina the Teenage Witch is an American sitcom based on the Archie Comics series of the same name. The show premiered on September 27, 1996, on ABC to over 17 million viewers in its “T.G.I.F.” line-up.
16 Make It or Break It

Such an underrated show! So many of my friends watched it while it was still on and loved it. That's why I decided to watch it on my own recently.

It was very realistic about how competitive the gymnastics world is! Plus, you get to see some incredible gymnastics routines. The characters were so dedicated to the sport and did everything to reach their dreams. It is pretty inspiring.

Love, love, love Make It or Break It. It was a very positive show, and I've learned so much from it, like not to make boys a main focus and not to give up on what I want.

Go above and beyond to reach your dreams and not let anyone stop you.

17 Jane By Design

Amazing is the closest word to describe this beautiful, majestic show. Fashion and drama in high school compare 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 adore every minute of it.

Jane by Design is the best show ever. There is drama, and it keeps you on the edge of your seat for the whole episode, wanting more.

The only downfall is they canceled the show before they made a season 2, and I can't find the last episode for the life of me. Other than that, this is a fantastic show.

18 Kyle XY

I absolutely love 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 the other cliché shows out there. Don't get me wrong, I like those too, but Kyle was different! He was so cute, funny, smart, and 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 too. 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!

19 Sister Sister
20 Greek

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

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 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?

21 The Nine Lives of Chloe King

Nine Lives of Chloe King was the best show in the world. It was original and always left you wondering what would happen next, especially the finale.

God, ABC Family either needs to stop making good shows or stop canceling them. My vote is for the stop canceling. THIS SHOW ROCKS! #1!

For me, it was the best show on ABC. Why would they cancel it? I hope it has a season 2.

Love this show so much. Please put it back on!

22 Gilmore Girls Gilmore Girls is an American comedy-drama television series, created by Amy Sherman-Palladino and starring Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel. The show debuted on October 5, 2000 on The WB and became a flagship series for the network. Gilmore Girls originally ran for seven seasons, with the final season... read more

If you have not seen Gilmore Girls, then you must have been dead for the last decade and a half. This show is such a cultural icon. That in itself should be enough to make you watch it.

It follows probably the most beautiful mother-daughter relationship on TV. The Gilmore girls are best friends with each other, and they will quickly feel like your best friends too!

Gilmore Girls is the best show ever! The end was kind of a surprise for the actors because it was cancelled, and the actors found out when it was not renewed. So, they didn't know that it was the last chapter. But you definitely have to give it a shot. It's amazing to see all the characters, the good plot, and the incredible story of Lorelai and Rory. I have watched it so many times, and I'm excited that it is going to be picked up by Netflix for four new episodes to finish the show as the producer Amy Sherman-Palladino wanted.

23 America's Funniest Home Videos
24 The Goldbergs The Goldbergs is an American sitcom that premiered on Tuesday, September 24, 2013 on ABC. The series was created by Adam F.

Love this show! Love Ninja is now stuck in my head.

25 Revenge

I love it! One of my all-time favorite shows.

This was literally one of the best shows I have watched on TV in a while. It keeps you on the edge of your seat.

Perfect amount of romance, drama, murder, everything.
