‘The Originals’ Or ‘Pretty Little Liars:’ Which Show Did You Watch?

Those be some serious fightin’ words!

Earlier today, we broke down the drama between ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars and the CW’s The Originals, two shows which air on the same day and time. Missed it? Here’s a quick recap: During last night’s telecast of Pretty Little Liars, The CW aired an ad on ABC Family urging fans to  “Ditch the old A ” (a reference to the main villain on PLL) and watch The Originals. PLL was quick to respond in kind with its own pointed message.

Though ratings will help determine which show actually grabbed the most viewers, we want to know where your allegiances lie. Did you watch The Originals or Pretty Little Liars last night? Did the feud between the two sway your decision either way? Were you tempted to turn the channel after watching The CW ad? Or did you stick with your usual viewing habits?

Let us know in the comments!

  43. Pix says:

    The Originals which I love !!!

  44. Erika says:

    PLL! That tweet was really messed up

  45. Barbara says:

    I got bored with PLL in the second season and quit watching. The Originals is so much more fun. I can’t decide if I like controlling, bad boy Klaus or romantic nobleman Elijah better. Both will get your blood pumping. And while Rebekkah can be a whiny b****, she is beginning to stand up to the controlling men in her life. She is using her girl power in a good way (finally) and I hope she doesn’t fall back into her self-indulgent ways.

  46. Reem says:

    The originals ofcourse ❤️❤️
    PLL is great too but it became so boring now !!

  47. A game says:
