The success of ABC Family's The Secret Life of the American Teenager is no fluke. Premiering the back half of its second season to 4.5 million viewers on Monday (Jan. 4) - 2.12 million were adults between the ages of 18 to 49 and 3 million between 12 to 34 - "Secret Life"'s return is now cable's No. 1 scripted premiere of the '09-'10 season in key demos, beating the debuts of TNT's Ray Romano series Men of a Certain Age (2.08 million, 18-49) and FX's Nip/Tuck (1.90 million, 18-49). More good news for the network came as "Secret Life"'s lead-out Make It or Break It started the second half of its first season with 2.7 million tuning in (1.2 million adults 18 to 49, 1.7 million 12 to 34) at 9 o'clock. To put this in perspective, there are more people on average watching "Make It or Break It" than Gossip Girl or 90210 , and "Secret Life" is pulling numbers those CW shows would cut someone for.

Though Nico Tortorella is probably best known for his role as Cole Shepherd on The CW 's ill-fated Mischa Barton drama " The Beautiful Life ," those of us who faithfully watched ABC Family's " Make It or Break It " this past summer knew him as Razor/"Pizza Guy" first. When Tortorella landed the Cole Shepherd part on "TBL," "Make It or Break It" was forced to let him go, but sources tell Korbi TV exclusively that Tortorella will definitely return to "MIOBI" now that "TBL" has been canceled. The story line? Seems Razor's band mate, Damon -- whom Emily Kmetko (Chelsea Hobbs) became quite close with in Razor's absence -- has moved to L.A. to pursue his songwriting aspirations. Meanwhile, back in Boulder, Pizza Guy is working at The Pizza Shack once again. So, will he and Emily rekindle their romance? It's inevitable, no? Have you seen Nico Tortorella? We did. This weekend. Holding hands with "TBL" co-star Sara Paxton at a party hosted by "Gossip Girl"'s Ed Westwick for artist Todd DiCiucio's "Heartstrings" exhibition. And, yeah, she'd be insane not to. Source Here
