Fans of ABC’s “Castle” should rejoice! Networks have been canceling shows left and right (“Rubicon“”Undercovers“) so its good to know that one of our favorites is thriving. According to EW, the mystery-thriller-dramedy just got a pick up for more episodes. That means more Castle and Beckett angst for everyone!
ABC has ordered 2 more episodes of the show to add to their already 22 episode season, bringing their grand total to 24. Some shows can pull off a full run with just 22 episodes but they obviously can’t get enough of this one. “Castle” has steadily performed well in its Monday night time slot coming in at a strong number 2 with an average of 12.8 million viewers.
Over the past few weeks, “Castle” has gotten a big ratings boost from its lead-in “Dancing With the Stars” and has been performing better than its CBS rival, “Hawaii Five-O,” and that’s really saying something. “Hawaii Five-O” is actually one of the few new shows to perform fairly well. “Castle” taking it down is a major feat.
On the super-business side of things, “Castle” 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.”
What do you think of ABC’s decision to pick up more Castle? Do you watch the show?
