Ratings: Castle Hits New High, NBC's Presidential Reunion Vetoed By Viewers

Cheer up over there, Caskett! Buoyed by that sparkly DWTS lead-in and opposite a Hawaii Five-0 rerun, your ABC series Castle this Monday hit a new season high in total viewers (with 12.83 million) and delivered its best audience and demos since March 29, 2010. Now I’m not one of them fancy mathematics “experts,” but that’s a one-year high!

Elsewhere this Monday:

* The aforementioned Dancing With the Stars performance show matched its week-ago numbers, drawing 22.33 million viewers and a 5.1 rating.

* NBC’s All Together Now: A Celebration Of Service special, attended by every living POTUS, was only saluted by a fourth place-worthy 4.2 million viewers and scored a 1.0 rating (well below Chuck‘s typical demo delivery).

* The freshman CBS comedy Mad Love dipped 9 percent in the demo to match a series-low 2.1.

* With The Chicago Code in repeat mode, The Event held steady with a 1.2 rating and even inched up 8 percent in audience (to 4.4 mil).

* Harry’s Law matched its week-ago numbers: 8.2 million viewers and a series-low 1.6 rating.

    Not to be a bug but i think there is a typo in your article Matt. I think the last time Castle had top demos was just last week, March 21 with 12.03 million.

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      It’s CASTLE’s largest audience and best demo rating since 3/29/10. I said nothing about last week.

        but you sure are snarky about it. the person read it wrong, a simple clarification would have sufficed over saying I Said Nothing Abiut… no reason to belittle and slam users who don’t get what is being said.

    • Travis says:

      The article states that Castle had its highest rating since March 29, 2010 which is true, that day it had 14.47 million viewers and a 3.7 in the adults 18-49 demo. No ratings numbers for Castle have been as high as last night since then.

    CASTLE! I’m so happy this show is getting the ratings and attention it deserves. The characters are delightful, the writing is fun, and the chemistry between the actors is fabulous. Hopefully Nathan Fillion is on his way to becoming the famous TV star he should have become when he was on “Firefly”!

    Yay Castle!! :)

    My wife absolutely loves Castle. Guess it’s time for me to give it a try. Love Chuck. Hope it comes back.

    The ending on the last episode of castle… How cute was that?? <3 <3

  7. Sourabh says:

    Love Castle, and that’s even after I’ve cut down on crime procedurals.

    I know people probably hate Mad Love, and the fact that it has a laugh track, but I find it nice.

    • DL says:

      I actually enjoy Mad Love, although I felt that the writing on last night’s episode wasn’t as strong as the prior ones.

  8. Gail says:

    CASTLE all the way..!! Love the story lines & the chemistry between ALL the actors. A great cast!

    The power of Stana Katic’s hair cannot be denied. ;)

    • Mo says:

      Her hair is pretty awesome, but it’s her not oft seen legs that really slay me. But her coups de grace for me is whenever she bites her lip…. knocks me out every time, but it’s a rare occurance.

  11. Beth says:

    Castle. Best Monday show!!!!!

  12. tj says:
