ABC's "Castle" Hits Season Highs on Its 100th Episode in Viewers and Adults 25-54

With Dancing and the 100th episode of Castle, ABC was Monday's most-watched network (6th time in 7 weeks), topping runner-up NBC with The Voice and Revolution by 2.2 million viewers. The Net ran a competitive #2 on the night in Adults 18-49, beating Fox's 8-10pm drama lineup (+5% over Bones/The Following). For the 3rd straight Monday, ABC's DWTS was the most-watched TV show and Castle was the night's most-watched scripted program.

Building from its first hour to its second hour in viewers and young adults, ABC's Dancing with the Stars once again ranked as the most-watched show in its 2-hour slot, outdrawing The Voice for the 2nd week in a row in head-to-head competition.

On its 100th episode, ABC's Castle was the most-watched TV show in 10 o'clock hour (6th straight telecast) and led with Adults 25-54, beating NBC's Revolution a best-ever 5.1 million viewers, while leading for the first time in Adults 25-54 (with a +14% advantage). In addition, the ABC drama ran in a virtual tie with Revolution in Adults 18-49 for its closest finish yet, pacing within 1-tenth of a rating point and tied in audience share. Up week to week in Viewers (+11%) and key Adults (AD25-54 +10%/AD18-49 +5%), Castle posted new season highs in Total Viewers and Adults 25-54. Growing year to year (+3%), Castle is delivering the series' most-watched season ever.

A note about increasing DVR penetration and year-to-year rating comparisons: Year-to-year rating comparisons based on the Live + Same Day data stream are distorted by the level of DVR penetration in the Nielsen sample, which has jumped up to 47% currently, from 43% at the same point in 2012. More viewers are watching shows on their own timetables, which may not be reflected in the overnight next day numbers. The only truly valid year-to-year comparison would be one based on the Live + 7 Day metric, once those stats are released by Nielsen.
