Dancing-With-The-Stars

via press note:

ABC earned second place on Monday night in Adults 18-49, finishing ahead of original lineups on both CBS (+5%) and Fox (+10%). Dancing with the Stars was up week to week in viewers and young adults and Castle once again was the most-watched TV show in the 10pm hour and the night’s top scripted series.

 

Please Note: ABC’s lineup was pre-empted in Boston last night.

 

Gaining week to week in Total Viewers (+2%) and Adults 18-49 (+5%), ABC’s Dancing with the Stars nearly tied CBS’ original 8-10pm comedy block among Adults 18-49 (pacing within 1-tenth of a rating point and tied in audience share) and beat out Fox’s first-run dramas (Bones/The Forgotten) by 10%. Up for the 2nd week in a row with Women 18-34, DWTS delivered a best-since-premiere rating – since 3/18/13.

 

During the 10 o’clock hour, ABC’s Castle was the most-watched TV show in its slot for its 6th straight original airing and was Monday’s #1 scripted series for its 5th consecutive telecast. In the hour, Castle defeated CBS’ Hawaii Five-0 by a season-best 2.8 million viewers and 17% in Adults 18-49. The ABC drama was on par with its last original two weeks ago among Adults 18-49.

    Love how they don’t even mention the “Revolution”/”Terror in Boston” situation. Way to spin it ABC. I’m not hating. Just as long as you don’t cancel “Castle.” :D

    WAY TO GO CASTLE!! Though I am only a newcomer to ‘CASTLE’ having just started watching it on the TNT network since Sept 2012,and now catching it on the ABC network, I enjoy it for it’s entertainment value however now I am captivated by the chemistry between the two main character’s played by Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic. Nathan Fillion’s comedic talent and drama skills wins me over however the dramatic genius of Stana Katic is outstanding. Why she hasn’t been nominated for an EMMY is beyond me for she certainly deserves to win hands down.
