Castle (10-11pm - 8.8 million and 1.8/4 in AD18-49): The #1 series in the 10 o'clock hour, ABC's Castle towered over the final hour of CBS' 2-hour Hostages finale in Total Viewers (+87% - 8.8 million vs. 4.7 million) and Adults 18-49 (+64% - 1.8/4 vs. 1.0/2).

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 49% currently, from 47% at the same point in 2013. 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.
