Castle monday November 11

Castle had a true mid-season break. Its most recent new episode aired way back on November 25. It garnered a 2.1 adults 18-49 rating against a new episode of The Blacklist. Tonight it returns after the season premiere of The Bachelor. Its only original broadcast competition will be the series finale of Hostages. Will the show benefit from having the time period to itself and what may turn out to be a stronger lead-in than the waning Dancing With the Stars? Make your prediction!

    actually there will be competition – the College Football national championship is tonight at 8:30 so that will impact ratings in the short term. for the year Castle will again win the time slot and get renewed for a 6th season – crushing the Moonlighting curse

    No competition mean Castle should garner a score greater than 2.2 (probably 2.4 – 2.5).

    Almost Human will probably get about a 1.7, and the 8pm rerun of the Blacklist it is up against, will probably get a 2.1. Almost Human got even sillier in the last three episodes, while getting more blatant with the theft of story ideas (e.g. Repo-men from 2010). I cannot see it holding more than a 1.5 – 1.7 range, but with the lack of competition tonight, it should score on the high-end of that range. After that, it dies. Too bad, Karl was getting more of a character to play, though the DRN was just silly (in every respect – especially flipping a van with a single hand at 60 km/h).

    I’m hoping for steady ratings, but I know my family (who usually watches Castle) will be watching the BCS game tonight instead!

    Less than 1.8 I would say 1.6. It has already aired in Canada. Everyone has already seen it online.

    2.2…It will prob be hurt by the BCS National Championship Game tho.
