The finale of The Secret Life of The American Teenager, which aired on ABC Family this past Tuesday, delivered the network their most watched original telecast ever.
4.5 million people tuned in to view the finale and the network points out that this is more viewers than any episode of Gossip Girl has ever received.
What did everyone think about the finale?
Personally, I think that the girl playing Amy's sister Ashley (India Eisley) deserves a raise (she's great!) and those two girls playing Amy's "best friends" should be fired. Amy's dad too. I really can barely tolerate a few of the characters on the show, which is making it a lot harder for me to enjoy. I can't quite tell if it's because of the delivery of the lines by these actors/actresses or the way they were written or a combination of both. Either way, those three make me cringe every time they open their mouths.
I also agree with jasterix88, who pointed out that Shawn Johnson's cameo was pretty terrible. I get it...it was supposed to be funny that Ricky asked Shawn where she had been (seeing as she was at the Olympics and all), but it just made no sense in this context that Shawn would be playing herself.
I did however like the development of Grace's character throughout the season, and while I still am a little offended by how "slutty" Adrian is, I do like what Francia Raisa is doing with the part. I also think that Shailene Woodley has been handling her dramatic scenes well. I believe her in the role.
