Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

What do you think? Do you still like the Castle TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a sixth season?

Definately not cancel. I think the series is terrific. I did not start as a fan but the last two years have me hooked.

I’ve stopped watching Revenge (it is not plausible; too much corruption, chain of custody not good, relies on fancy costumes, fancy sets, over the top, poor attention to detail), Bones (has become boring, poor story themes), JAG, NCIS, CSI (all too predictable, over the top, poor detail and similar themes)

CASTLE is credible, plausible, not over the top, attention to visual detail is exceptional and reflects many similar aspects of my own career experiences. I live from week to week for new episodes of CASTLE. Each minute of every episode recharges me for the next week. To not renew Castle for at least a sixth and preferably more seasons would be committing murder!!!!! Please continue with more seasons of CASTLE

Castle’s character got weaker and more foolish as time weny on. I got tired of watching him get abused and picked on by everyone, esp Bevkety. It really went too fat. Then he lost his appeal.

This show HAS to be renewed. It is, without a doubt, THE best show on television. It has the right mix of comedy and drama….and the chemistry between the whole cast is unbelievablely amazing. And Beckett and Castle….They are mind blowingly AWESOME!!!! There is too much story left to tell….it HAS to be renewed!!

Love this show and why do good things always get reviewed to end at the absolute wrong time? Please renew the series and find new heads if you need new ideas because this is definitely a classy show with family values, morals, friendships and honor. Few shows provide all that and more these days. Keep up the great work…ALL of you!
