Keep your fingers crossed Castle fans. One short week after Castle earned the "most startling show of support" in USA TODAY's 12th Annual Save our Shows Survey The Live Feed is reporting that Castle's ratings are up for the third consecutive week and are the best since mid-March.
Another headline Monday: Detective drama Castle [ 10 million, 2.8 ], which rose for the third week in a row to hit its best number since mid-March.
Castle rose a sharp 40% this week, benefiting from a direct lead-in from Dancing rather than having to wait for Surviving Suburbia to drive away all the viewers. This is the third consecutive week of growth for the freshman detective drama. Even considering the obvious help of the large Dancing lead in, if Castle holds a similar number next week, chances of a second season slide from uncertain to probable.
Hopefully Castle's improving ratings will help it earn a renewal.
TV By The Numbers - who had "been down on the show’s renewal chances" - is now predicting that "if it can hold that level, it gets renewed."
