'American Teenager' sets ABC Family record

Brenda Hampton's new teen pregnancy drama "The Secret Life of an American Teenager" set a ratings record for ABC Family.

With 2.8 million viewers, Tuesday night's "Teenager" debut was the most-watched series premiere ever for the network (and its highest rated among adults 18-49, women, the works). Among all of cable, "Teenager" won its time slot. The debut ranked as the network’s top series telecast ever in several demographics, though trails the first season finale of “Kyle XY” in total viewers.

Here's THR's "Teenager" review and here's Hampton talking about how the show deals with teen pregnancy.

(Hmm, bet Nickelodeon now wishes it had given Jamie Lynn Spears a reality show last year.)
