"Two years ago we embarked on a bold strategy to grow the breadth and scope of original programming and create a Wednesday night summer comedy destination," said President of ABC Family Michael Riley in a statement. "The new series have resonated with our viewers, and the combination of drama, comedy and reality brings great depth to our lineup. Our stable of strong series continues to grow, and I'm thrilled with the strength of our schedule."
Meanwhile, Jane by Design's July finale drew 1.2 million viewers, down from the season average of 1.3 million, which contributed to ABC Family's decision not to pick up the series for a second season.
