Meanwhile, that change will push "Twisted's" midseason return to Tuesday, Feb. 11 after "Ravenswood" finishes its first run.

"Ravenswood" premiered on Oct. 22 after the annual "Pretty Little Liars" Halloween special. It became ABC Family's highest-rated series premiere in the network's key demographic, women 18-34. It was also cable's biggest TV series debut in three years.

In Week 1, "Ravenswood" attracted 2.1 million total viewers. Among the channel's key demo, it earned 789,000 viewers and a 2.3 rating. ABC declined to furnish TheWrap Week 2 ratings pending L+3 numbers.
