Castle Lives of Others 2

via press note:

With Dancing with the Stars and the 100th episode of Castle, ABC was Monday’s most-watched network (6th time in 7 weeks), topping runner-up NBC with The Voice and Revolution by 2.2 million viewers. The Net ran a competitive #2 on the night in Adults 18-49, beating Fox’s 8-10pm drama lineup (+5% over Bones/The Following). For the 3rd straight Monday, ABC’s DWTS was the most-watched TV show and Castle was the night’s most-watched scripted program.

 

Building from its first hour to its second hour in viewers and young adults, ABC’s Dancing with the Stars once again ranked as the most-watched show in its 2-hour slot, outdrawing The Voice for the 2nd week in a row in head-to-head competition.

 

On its 100th episode, ABC’s Castle was the most-watched TV show in 10 o’clock hour (6th straight telecast) and led with Adults 25-54, beating NBC’s Revolution a best-ever 5.1 million viewers, while leading for the first time in Adults 25-54 (with a +14% advantage). In addition, the ABC drama ran in a virtual tie with Revolution in Adults 18-49 for its closest finish yet, pacing within 1-tenth of a rating point and tied in audience share. Up week to week in Viewers (+11%) and key Adults (AD25-54 +10%/AD18-49 +5%), Castle posted new season highs in Total Viewers and Adults 25-54. Growing year to year (+3%), Castle is delivering the series’ most-watched season ever.

    Best Castle season ever – by what account? Last season the best total audience and the best 18-49 rating from the first 19 episodes was higher, just like the average total audience and the average rating. The same applies if they count the first 20 episodes of last season (they were one episode ahead by 2nd April).

    don,t know why we get so much bitching on this sight! Castle is the best written and certainly has the most watchable talent of any of the scripted tv shows. Humour, romance, drama this group of actors seem to be able to do it all.the two main stars Katic and Fillion are perfection . So just sit back and enjoy.

    ‘CASTLE’ is AWESOME and keeps getting better and better. The writing, and the characters couldn’t be more astounding. The chemistry between Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic is extraordinary. This series has everything, drama, romance, humor and the greatest team of actors and writers on the planet. Kudus to CASTLE!! I’ll take ‘CASTLE’ over ‘NCIS’ any day. BEST SERIES EVER!!
