Switched at Birth Returns September 3rd

ABC Family has announced that Switched at Birth will be returning for the final 10 episodes of its first season on Monday, September 3rd at 8:00. The show, which will be taking over from The Secret Life of the American Teenager, was given a super-sized episode order on its initial renewal; rather than getting another 10 episodes after its first 10, ABC Family gave it 22, dividing them into a group of 12 and a group of 10.
