ABC Family Shows Nab Majority of Teen Choice Nominations

Switched at BirthForget the CW -- teens are clearly flocking to ABC Family to get their dose of angst, eye candy and drama!

The Teen Choice Awards are easily one of the most outrageous award shows of the year. The celebrities get to relax and have fun and the teens get to pick their favorites in television, movies and music. In previous years, shows such as Gossip Girl, The Vampire Diaries and Supernatural took up the majority of the nominations, but this year, ABC Family leads the pack with multiple nominations in every television category.

New drama series Switched at Birth and The Nine Lives of Chloe King and resident ratings-powerhouse Pretty Little Liars have scored big for ABC Family this summer. The network clearly knows its niche and continue to deliver exactly what this important demographic craves. I wouldn't be surprised to see several dramas added to the lineup in the next couple of years.

There is still time to vote in the 2011 Teen Choice Awards - Vote Now. The awards airs live on Sunday, August 7 at 8pm ET on Fox.

Great news for “Switched at Birth,” my 17 yo is hooked on it. But what will this mean for the future — has the program been renewed for another season yet, and if so, when can she (we!) look forward to new episodes?????
