Ratings: Castle Returns to Series Lows — Was MIA Kate a Factor?

Castle Ratings Series Low

ABC’s Castle returned from its two-week break — and minus one out-of-town Beckett — to 6.1 million total viewers and a 1.0 demo rating (per finals), ticking down on both counts to new series lows.

Opening ABC’s night, Dancing With the Stars (12.6 mil/2.0) inched up 4 percent and a tenth.

Elsewhere in the ratings….

CBS | Supergirl (8.1 mil/1.7) slipped 9 and 23 percent in Week 3, and is now down 27 and 45 percent from its Big Bang-boosted launch. Scorpion (9.3 mil/1.8) dipped a tenth in the demo and NCIS: Los Angeles (7.9 mil/1.3) was flat.

NBC | The Voice (12 mil/3.2) dipped a tenth while the already renewed-for-Season 2 Blindspot (7.7 mil/2.2) was steady.

FOX | Gotham (4.1 mil/1.5) dipped just a bit, while a Bones rerun did 1.6 mil/0.5 compared to Minority Report‘s most recent 1.8 mil/0.6.

THE CW | Crazy Ex (1 mil/0.3) and Jane the Virgin (1.1 mil/0.4) were steady.
