Twitter's Year in Review: Which TV Stars and Shows Were 'Hot Topics' in 2011?

by Catherine Lawson, posted Dec 5th 2011 8:25AM
It's that time of year again, when everyone starts looking back over the past year and compiles 'Best of' and 'Worst of' lists. Twitter's been unveiling its annual 'Year in Review' since Thursday and has just published its 'Hot Topics' lists.

Uber-Twitter user Charlie Sheen's clearly still winning online: Last week AOL announced that Sheen was our most searched-for celebrity in 2011, and now he's claimed the top spot in the Twitter "Actor" Hot Topic.

Plus, one of his stranger obsessions -- #tigerblood -- came in at Number 2 in the "Hashtags" category (just behind #egypt).

Check out who and what else made the cut after the jump.

'Pretty Little Liars' Goes Back to the Beginning for Halloween Prequel (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 20th 2011 7:15AM
'Pretty Little Liars' - 'The First Secret'Alison's still alive and A is just getting started. That's the Halloween special we were treated to this week as 'Pretty Little Liars' (Wed., 8PM ET on ABC Family). We got to see Alison in action, and lots of clues pointing to Lucas as a possible A. He even said, at one point, that she'll get what's coming to her.

When Alison set up a prank for her friends at the scary abandoned house, everything went off perfectly, except for one minor detail. Her boyfriend was still at the party, meaning the big dude tussling with her in the hall wasn't her boyfriend, so was he really trying to kill her?

'Hart of Dixie' (9PM ET, The CW)

In fact, it takes all of Zoe's strength to ignore her heat-induced attraction to Wade until it gets the best of her. Meanwhile, Lemon prepares for the arrival of George's family, determined to win them over, but her emotions get the best of her when Lavon shows up to the same restaurant with his date, Didi. (Shirtless Wilson Bethel alert!)

'Sing Your Song' (10PM ET, HBO) special presentation
Filmmaker Susanne Rostock tells the rich life story of artist and humanitarian Harry Belafonte in this feature-length documentary. Though the film touches on Belafonte's musical career, 'Sing Your Song' focuses much of its time on Belafonte's social activism, as he worked intimately with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., mobilized celebrities for social justice, participated in the struggle against apartheid in South Africa and took action to counter gang violence, prisons and the incarceration of youth. Those interviewed include Tonny Bennett, Diahann Carroll, Whoopi Goldberg, Quincy Jones, Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, as well as Belafonte's family and the artist himself.

Toby Uncovers the Possible Murder Weapon on 'Pretty Little Liars' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 27th 2011 12:24AM
'Pretty Little Liars' - 'Surface Tension'Toby uncovered physical evidence of something on 'Pretty Little Liars' (Tue., 8PM ET on ABC Family). But was the hockey stick he discovered buried on Spencer's property just a broken piece of sports equipment, or was it something more?

He talked to Spencer about it. "It was snapped off at the handle and the blade was splintered like somebody used it to hit something hard."

Spencer's father showed up when Toby first found the hockey stick. As he told Spencer, "At first I thought he was angry. Now I think he might have been scared."

Spencer confronted her father about it, but he blew her off completely. "It doesn't mean anything. It's nothing," he told her, and then to prove his point he threw the hockey stick into the fire. But was he burning evidence, or just getting rid of trash?

Emily Uncovers the Truth Behind Ian's Suicide Note on 'Pretty Little Liars' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 13th 2011 12:29AM
'Pretty Little Liars' - 'The Devil You Know'You didn't really think Ian's suicide was everything it appeared to be? In fact, on the latest 'Pretty Little Liars' (8PM ET on ABC Family) we learned that everything we thought we knew about Ali and Ian wasn't even true.

Ali being dead in that video at the rock was just a game she and Ian played. She was alive when he left her there, meaning he didn't kill her. He didn't write the suicide note either, as Emily deduced. Or even commit suicide.

"When I read it again," Emily said of the note, "A couple of words stuck out to me. On a hunch I checked out my old text messages."

A Shocking Suicide Could Change Everything on 'Pretty Little Liars' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 6th 2011 2:41AM
'Pretty Little Liars' - 'Blind Dates'Unless 'Pretty Little Liars' (Tue., 8PM ET on ABC Family) is going to pull a classic mystery staple of having the killer pretend to be dead to remove suspicion, we can rule out one potential "A." And in doing so, they wrapped this particular episode with a genuine surprise. Maybe that's why they lingered on it for nearly a solid awkward minute.

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

Seriously, it seemed like we were about to hear the elimination verdict in a reality show, as the camera panned over all the girls one by one in slow motion. Oh, it also cut liberally back to the fresh corpse and the suicide note sitting next to it.

This is the second time Ian has died in the series, but this time at least looks more permanent. According to the suicide note, Ian confessed to Alison's murder, but can even that be believed? This is 'Pretty Little Liars' and a suicide note can be a lie. Hell, the whole suicide could be a lie.

Aria and Ezra Kiss in the Open on His Last Day on 'Pretty Little Liars' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 22nd 2011 4:47AM
'Pretty Little Liars'The relationship -- or was it? -- between Aria and Ezra reached a climax this week on 'Pretty Little Liars' (Tue., 8PM ET on ABC Family). Throughout the episode, circumstances kept them from being able to truly talk about what was happening emotionally between them, so Ezra decided to do so in his closing remarks to the entire class.

"I didn't expect to connect with you the way that I have. I never expected to feel this kind of loss over leaving you," he told the class, but really Aria.

She nearly let him walk out of her life with those closing remarks, but decides she can't leave things like that. Luckily, she catches him just before he leaves campus and, throwing caution to the wind, plants a huge kiss on him right there in the parking lot.

'Pretty Little Liars' S02/E01The Season 2 premiere of 'Pretty Little Liars' (Tue., 8PM ET on ABC Family) was packed full of revelations and even more mysteries. Like, OMG, where's Ian's body?

Much to Hanna's surprise, Lucas arranges for Caleb to come back to town. However, although Hanna may forgive Caleb for using her, she'll never forget, and so he faces an uphill battle to win her trust.

Caleb bears his soul to the skeptical Hanna, saying that he'd never told her of his true feelings because "I didn't feel like I could say those things without making a complete a** of myself. So I wrote you a letter."

Letter? What letter? Hanna never got a letter. She's been mad at him for skipping town without bothering to say good-bye. So when Caleb says, "I gave it to Mona. Didn't she give it to you?" Hanna discovers that yet another friend is unworthy of her trust.

'Pretty Little Liars' Season 2 Premiere: The Most Scandalous Moments

by Jean Bentley, posted Jun 14th 2011 9:00PM
Pretty Little Liars season 2 premiereI didn't know how much I missed the nonstop drama of the 'Pretty Little Liars' ladies -- seriously, even their secrets have secrets -- until I watched Tuesday's Season 2 premiere.

After you get past the fact that there are way too many beautiful people for such a small Pennsylvania town, the blackmail/backstabbing/clandestine teacher-student affairs are ultra-addicting. Perfect for my spartan summer TV-watching schedule.

After the jump, here are my favorite ridiculous moments from the Season 2 premiere.

Five ABC Family Girls Who Could Be Your New BFF

by Jean Bentley, posted Jun 14th 2011 2:15PM
Nine Lives of Chloe KingIt's doubtful a mysterious stranger is blackmailing you and framing you for your best friend's murder, but isn't it strange that somehow it feels like the 'Pretty Little Liars' girls could be your real-life BFFs?

The same goes for the title character on 'The Nine Lives of Chloe King.' So you're not the most powerful member of a feline-like ancient race with nine lives -- you get the same butterflies when a cute guy flirts with you at your after-school job.

ABC Family has always done a good job at creating shows around likable teenage girls who you can identify with even if your life is nothing like theirs. In honor of tonight's 'PLL' return (8PM ET) and 'Nine Lives' premiere (9PM), I've rounded up five of ABC Family's most relatable characters -- ones I'd totally hang out with if I could (and they weren't fictional).

Pretty Little Liars, ABC FamilyIf you have a tween girl in the house, you're probably aware of at least a few shows airing on ABC Family -- 'The Secret Life of the American Teenager,' 'Make It or Break It,' and '10 Things I Hate About You' spring to mind.

'Pretty Little Liars' sounds like a cross between 'The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants,' 'Desperate Housewives,' and 'Gossip Girl.' But it also looks pretty good. Here are four reasons why this show will be a hit.
