If Castle should be moved, which day?

ABC is at a bit of a crossroads when it comes to its schedule. With Castle its only show that is at the stage of contract renewals and the state of its ratings, ABC is faced with a dilemma. Do you hope the ratings rebound (which they probably won’t) or do call it a day with season seven. And if you do that, do you move the show to another night to open up that Monday spot for a freshman show or move one of its weaker dramas to that coveted Monday night spot? If I was in charge of programing, I’d move Castle to Tuesdays at 10 p.m., Wednesday at 10 p.m. or even Thursdays at 8 p.m. All three of those spots ABC needs to have a strong performer.

Review: The Greater Good

I’d be happy to put you out of your misery if it’ll make you feel any better about your favorite show going on hiatus. But the law frowns upon that sort of thing.

When news broke over the weekend about how there’s going to be hiatus of about three weeks for Castle there was no shortage of diarrhea of the mouth from some fans. I can’t understand the logic or emotional instability of some folks crying about their favorite show going on hiatus for a few weeks. Are you all that self-centered and obnoxious? Have we come to this point where we have be completely arrogant fans over this? And stuff like this just annoys me to no end and I really hope this person seeks medical attention because it’s quite clear they are in need of professional help.
