    Really great episode of Castle … but this was not a season high. Someone here at TVBTN correct me if I’m wrong but wasn’t 5×05 “Probable Cause” highest rated?

  • Hmm

    Season high for Castle! Much deserved on one of the best episodes of the series!

  • omabin

    Wow, even more impressive for the following. A 21% increase, to exactly the same result it had two weeks ago, the entire audience came back. Makes me wonder what the hell happened last week. Also, season high for castle. It had a strong lead-in so that should have helped a lot, but I think it shows that the show still has some life for ABC, it is definitely an asset.

    Nope, 5×05 had a 2.2

    I believe that episode had a 2.3 in the preliminaries but was adjusted down to a 2.2.

    9021 No.

  • Hmm

    @ Gigi

    No, this is a season high for Castle. The week Probable Cause was on there was storm coverage going on so the numbers were skewed. I believe it ended up at a 2.2.

  • SJ

    Great for Castle and The Following! Fox should just renew The Following right here and now.

    Hawaii 5-0 is so moving to Fridays or Sundays next year.

  • Judy912

    WOW, I am estatic, ‘Castle’ actually gained a tenth of the point to a seasonal high. WELL DESERVED! Nathan Fillion’s performance was EMMY worthy in my eyes. Can’t wait for the second part of this fantastic episode. WAY TO GO CASTLE!!!

  • DonnaT

    90210 and TCD really should be feeding the bear with these results but unless Cult (I really liked it!) adjusts up in the finals and debuting so low both are likely to be renewed. It’s looking like a bad week for The CW. Against a stronger AI I expect both Arrow and SPN to be down from last week.

  • Nick

    The Following made a huge rebound. This show is a hit.

    Rules of Engagement also not doing horribly. Keeping the timeslot warm at least.

  • Kari

    Good for Castle and The Following !
    Mike&Molly up,just makes Hawaii 50 look even worse , LOL

  • John A

    H50 lost a 1.2 from lead in and they were complaning that Castle had bad retention? Loser Fanbase.

  • Mari

    HOLY SHI!!! Castle was adjusted up in the finals!!! *does happy dance*

  • Juan

    Yay castle, season high on the best ep of season for sure, I expect another season high next week

  • eridapo

    @ Gigi..
    Nope.. This is the season high… Probable Cause and Secret’s Safe both garnered a 2.2

  • James

    Glad to see Rules of Engagement continuing to be strong, please renew CBS!

  • panda22

    lol….if Nikita scores a 0.5 it will be in the top 3 CW shows for the week


    The Vampire Diaries


    renewal :D

  • omabin

    More and more I can see a scenario in which CBS actually dares to expand their comedy hours. Rules pulling 3s will mean it will, again, be the perfect backup if one of the three new comedies the expansion would entail fails.

  • Kourt

    Castle hasn’t seen a 2.3 demo since like season 3 or 4. Awesome numbers for Castle
