Good news for Castle fans: The drama has done so well for ABC that the network has decided to pick up two more episodes. That brings the total season order to 24.
On average, Castle ranks a strong No. 2 in its Monday timeslot in total viewers (12.8 million) and adults 18-49 (3.2 rating/8 share). Over the last four weeks, Castle – which is getting a big boost from Dancing with the Stars – has drawn more viewers than Hawaii Five-0. This is the show’s best season ever.
The show also attracts an advertiser-coveted upscale audience as TV’s No. 1 show at 10 p.m. among adults 18-49 in homes earning more than $100,000 annually, according to ABC.
