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!
