Good work, Castle fans. Last night’s new episode, “Under the Gun,” drew over 30% more viewers than ABC’s mystery drama drew at the same time last year. That means that a fourth season seems pretty...

...likely. Not only did the Nathan Fillion-fronted show improve on its own ratings, but it trounced its network competitors, including the highly anticipated Hawaii Five-0 reboot on CBS and NBC’s Chase. Altogether, ABC boasted over 6 million viewers over its nearest competitor, CBS.

Those knockout ratings were definitely helped by ABC’s other Monday night heavyweight, Dancing with the Stars...but we'd like to think that Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic’s blistering sexual chemistry has something to do with the network’s popularity! What about you?
