Castle - Season 5 Statistics Summary / Finale Ratings Poll

(Check out my website, www.seriesmonitor.com)

Despite the last 10 episodes of this season of Castle earning a 2.0 adults 18-49 rating or higher, the ratings average for all 23 episodes that have aired to date, sits at just 2.04.
It's a similar deal with Castle's audience numbers this season, with the average sitting at 10.18 million viewers per episode. All of the last 8 episodes have equaled or bettered that audience level

The ratings for Castle this season have sat between 1.7 and 2.3 - with the episode that earned that sole 1.7 being 'Secret Santa' - Castle's first ever Christmas episode. No other episode this season has earned a 1.7 rating, and just one episode has come away with a 1.8 rating.

That leaves the remaining 21 episodes this season sitting between a 1.9 and 2.3 rating - a 0.4 point difference, which shows that despite ratings not being as high as previous seasons, they are very consistent. For comparison, season 4 of Castle saw ratings fluctuate between a 3.2 in the premiere 'Rise' and a 2.0 - a 1.2 point fluctuation.

Looking at Live+7 ratings gains for a minute. Castle has seen its season average L+SD ratings rise from 2.04, to 3.05 this season - a gain of 49.5%. Season average audiences have grown from 10.18 million viewers, to 13.691 million viewers - a gain of 16.7%. Bear in mind that this data is three weeks behind the current Live+SD data, and when another weeks worth of Live+7 data is released tomorrow, these averages will change again

Now for the poll question, and it's pretty simple: Will Castle's finale earn a 2.3 or above rating, or 2.2 or below rating?
Bear in mind that 2.3 is the current ratings season high, and that the last 2 episodes have both earned 2.0 ratings.

Thanks for reading and voting! Enjoy the finale!

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
