In true ‘A’ style, ABC Family is sending fans on a scavenger hunt across the Internet to solve a mysterious riddle from the diabolical lead antagonist in the hit series ‘Pretty Little Liars,’ which premieres for its third season Tuesday, June 5th at 8:00 pm ET/PT. The new ‘Pretty Little Puzzle Hunt’ game is launching today at www.abcfamily.com/prettylittlepuzzlehunt with a sinister message from ‘A:’ ‘I love games. Don’t you? But if you want a sneak peek of what the Liars are up to, you are going to have to play MY game…’
Chris’ heart is racing – for more than one reason: Not only does he discover that he has this week’s first one-on-one date with Emily, he’s jolted when he learns that he must attempt to scale a building with her if he’s to spend any quality time with the Bachelorette, and when she surprises him with a performance by country star Luke Bryan. Meanwhile 12 men will be grilled by Emily’s friends, who will report back to her about who they think would be a good match for her and a good stepfather for Ricki. Emily surprises Arie with a flight to Dollywood for a special day on which the park is open only to them, and in a total shocker to Emily, her idol, country music legend Dolly Parton, gives the couple a private concert. But it all ends at a dramatic cocktail party when some of the men come clean about whether they’re ready to step up and be a stepfather, which sends shock waves through the group — and Emily decides to do something about it — on “The Bachelorette,” Monday, May 28 at 8:00 pm ET on the ABC Television Network.
‘Baby Daddy’ is a hilarious new original comedy about a young man who becomes a surprise dad to a baby girl when she’s left on his doorstep by an ex-girlfriend. ‘Baby Daddy’ makes its world premiere on Wednesday, June 20 at 8:30 pm ET/PT, following an all-new ‘Melissa & Joey’ on ABC Family.
Gravity Falls is just west of weird, slightly east of eerie and always north of normal, in a fresh new comedy series that follows city kids and twins Dipper and Mabel Pines who are sent to spend the summer with their eccentric Great Uncle Stan (aka Grunkle Stan) who runs a tourist trap called The Mystery Shack in a remote northwestern town where nothing is what it seems. There are creatures in the forest, there are monsters in the lake and even time traveling adventures. The comedy, produced by Disney Television Animation, has a special preview Friday, June 15 at 9:55 pm ET/PT and premieres Friday, June 29 at 9:30 pm ET/PT on Disney Channel.

This is no ordinary Bachelorette, as the 19 remaining men find out when they are “tested” from the start about how they might fit into Emily’s world as a dad, as well as working at a charity event that is near and dear to her heart. Now ensconced in the sprawling 12,000-square foot mansion in Emily’s hometown of Charlotte, the men quickly learn that roses will be at stake on the one group date and on two individual dates. However, the competition is revved up when they learn that not all the men will get dates before the next rose ceremony, so the bachelors must take advantage of every opportunity to score points with the Bachelorette. A special concert by hit country music trio Gloriana and a charming, scene-stealing romp with the acclaimed Muppets, featuring Kermit and Miss Piggy, at the charity event are real delights. But after careful deliberation, Emily must eliminate three men, as she starts to try and make her fairytale come true, on “The Bachelorette,” Monday, May 21st at 9:01 pm ET/PT on the ABC Television Network.
