Ratings: 'Castle' hits series high thanks to 'Dancing' lead-in

Posted on

ABC’s Castle rose to a series high, according to preliminary overnight ratings. The show nabbed a great 14.5 million viewers, a number most certainly helped by the boffo 22.6 million viewers who tuned in for the second week of Dancing with the Stars. Elsewhere, Fox’s 24 saw no boost from this week’s news that the series is ending, drawing in only 8.4 million eyes.
