via press note:

ABC was Monday’s most-watched TV network for the 2nd week in a row, topping NBC by 2.2 million viewers, Fox by 5.0 million viewers and CBS by 5.1 million viewers. Dancing with the Stars was Monday’s most-watched TV show overall and Castle continued to rank as the night’s most-watched scripted series. In addition at 10pm, Castle finished #1 in the 10pm hour in Adults 18-49 for the 2nd week in a row.


Leading each half-hour from 8-10pm to finish as Monday’s top show, ABC’s Dancing with the Stars drew 6% more viewers than NBC’s The Voice in head-to-head competition in the 2-hour slot.


Castle ranked #1 in the 10pm hour for the 2nd week running with Total Viewers and Adults 18-49. Please Note: Like last week Castle and Revolution tied in the Fast Affiliate ratings in Adults 18-49, but Castle ended up beating Revolution by 15% in the Nationals. Castle has been the #1 regular series in its time period for 8 consecutive first-run airings in Total Viewers and for 4 straight originals in Adults 18-49. In addition, ABC drama was Monday’s most-watched scripted series for its 7th consecutive broadcast.

    Great to hear ‘CASTLE’ is doing so well. Hope ABC makes the announcement soon about renewing the series for a sixth season which include another 24 episodes.
