Castle’s chances at renewal, which improved significantly after its outing on Monday, just got a lot better with the news that ABC is removing Surviving Suburbia from the lineup and putting Castle right after Dancing with the Stars. On the other hand, the survival chances of Suburbia just took a hit. Maybe not a fatal one, but it’s certainly not good news.
ABC has pulled the Monday night sitcom “Surviving Suburbia” off the air for the remainder of the season. Show had been sandwiched between “Dancing With the Stars” and “Castle” on Monday nights; but with “Suburbia” preempted this week, “Stars” helped give a nice ratings boost to “Castle.”
As a result, “Dancing” will once again air as a two-hour on Monday; the following week, as had already been scheduled, “Dancing” will air for an hour into the two-hour premiere of “The Bachelorette.”
“Suburbia,” which stars Bob Saget as a cranky family man living in the ‘burbs, will complete its run sometime during the summer.
