    CAstle was great last night. Good to see it did well.

    • Lee says:

      You failed to mention that Hawaii 5-0 had a rerun so maybe that’s why Castle’s numbers were up so much.

      • Jade says:

        Actually NO!!! Even without Hawaii 5-0, Castle’s numbers are pretty high!! Hawaii 5-0 is dipping and hasn’t reached 10 million viewers at least for half of the season this year !

  2. martina says:

    Beautiful numbers for Castle last night, especially considering that ABC changed the episode sequence, creating some confusion, and that the promo for The Squab and the Quail was released just on Friday!

  3. Astrid says:

    Great to see those numbers for Castle!

  4. Rachel says:

    Great Castle news! Can ABC renew it already?!

  5. Becca says:

    Whooo go Castle!!!

  6. eridapo says:

    Castle will probably win the hour in the finals once the DTWS and Voice overruns are taken out of the equation. Since Castle rater higher than DWTS, it will not be adjusted down while Revolution will given that it rated much lower than the Voice by about 2 ratings points. The half hours for Castle were 2.3/2.2 versus Revolutions 2.4/1.9

    • eridapo says:

      Just to update .. Based on the final Nielsen numbers per TVBTN…
      Castle was adjusted up to a 2.3
      Bones was adjusted up to a 2.0
      Rules Of Engagement was adjusted up to a 1.6
      Revolution was adjusted down to a 2.0

    90210! I am going to miss you – but yes i admit it’s time for you to go! Gosh I feel and sound like a torn lover from 90210 myself :P

  9. wrstlgirl says:

    The Following was awesome last night….again!! Looking forward to the finale’ next week :-)

  10. Boiler says:

    Glad Oh Sit stunk!! Wierd about Voice since CBS in reruns

  11. Anonymous says:

    yay for Castle !! i think this just proves that no matter how crazy the fandom is..we still and always pull through.. :)

  12. James says:

    it think that’s proof enough that Castle is continuing to pull in new viewers. it’s a beautiful thing to see. still one of the best shows on TV. I admit that i’ve given up on Following so not paying attention to its numbers. i am liking Revolution more and more though so good to see its steady.

    Hey Matt would it be possible to get Defiance’s numbers or is it too soon. i was curious to see if it kept a good portion of its premiere viewers or not.

  13. Parker says:

    The Voice was great last night…and will probably rise a tenth of a point or two in the finals (and top 14 million viewers), as usual. Revolution was also really good, and it’s hard to imagine it not being renewed for next season at these demo levels. It’s always amazing to me that DWTS can reach 13 million viewers with such low 18-49 numbers…how old is its audience?

  14. David4 says:

    The ending of house was just stupid and annoying, more so that the clip show next week was meant to be the episode before this one. If you are going to get the couple on the show together they need to do a better job than they are. All they are doing is dumbing down Castle and making Beckett get annoyed. Plus it seems like they are leading up to them getting engaged, which I think is just way too soon, or break up, which will never work.

  15. Plum says:

    I don’t get it. How does CW stay on the air with a half million viewers a night and dropping?

    • Bob says:

      The CW is still on the air? ;-) Actually, they’re still on the air because CBS makes so much money with their powerhouse ratings schedule that they can afford the losses at The CW. Not so sure about the Warner Bros. half.

  16. Kris says:

    The Following was so great last night!! Glad it’s doing well in the ratings!

  17. Sarah says:

    I’m a bit surprised that Bones didn’t go up any. I really hope it does next week, though, with it being the finale. But CBS will be new so…

    • Tamera says:

      I’m actually happy that Bones is staying steady. I think with it being 8 seasons into the series and still keeping such high numbers says a lot about the loyalty of the viewers and the quality of the writing. I’m just glad that it has already been renewed for season 9!

    • A says:

      After quite a few boring filler episodes this was actually a really good episode of Bones. Even though I dislike the Arastoo character and never really bought into the romance with Cam it was a nice change of pace. Can’t wait for Pelant next week!!

  18. jonathon says:

    Great to see the Following and Revolution numbers doing well. They are both really great new shows that are exciting to watch week after week. Cannot wait till next week’s finale of both Bones and the Following!!

  19. TJCrinc says:

    i actually prefer how they re-scheduled the 2 castle episodes, because in the next episode (“Still”), according to the canadian promo, castle hears 3 very important words from beckett that hasnt been spoken yet.

  20. Gillian says:

    The Following is awesome! Can’t believe the fine is next week. Revolution is good, the best part being Elizabeth Mitchell. Hoping they don’t kill off her character.

  21. Thari says:

    Anything on Defiance?

  22. Lisa says:

    Yes Castle! I liked last nights Ep and think the switch may actually benefit the fans and the series.

  23. Brian says:

    Anything on how “Rules” did? I’m still a die hard fan and holding out hope for a season 8

  24. Chicago Dan says:

    REV drops to a 2.0 in finals. Wow.

  25. Andrea says:

    Wow!!! Castle adjusted up to a 2.3 in the finals, beating Revolution and it did better than DWTS!

  26. mary says:

    Well done Castle, ever since they focused on their relationship ratings are higher and higher. I think Marlowe learned from his mistakes and judging by next week’s promo ABC is all about Caskett.

  27. Mari says:

    YES! Great numbers for Castle!!
