Revolution held steady Monday after a week off the air.
The NBC drama, which was pre-empted last week for a Boston Marathon bombing special, drew 6.2 million viewers and a 2.2 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, on par with its last episode two weeks ago. Lead-in The Voice (13.9 million, 4.8) dipped ...
"It's not UN-weird," says the solemn and seriously disoriented Daniel Holden (a revelatory Aden Young), who's adjusting to life outside of prison after 19 years on death row, to which he was sentenced as a teen for a murder that new evidence suggests he may not have committed. Impeccably written and acted, quietly suspenseful, almost unbearably sad in its aching poignancy, Sundance Channel's six-hour drama series Rectify explores the impact of freedom on the overwhelmed Daniel, his grateful yet apprehensive family and the hostile Georgia small town that still condemns him.
NBC has chosen to pull the upcoming fourth episode of Hannibal in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings, Variety reports.
The episode, which was slated to air on April 25, depicts children, who have been brainwashed by a woman (Saturday Night Live vet Molly Shannon), murdering other children. Instead, NBC will air...

What can we expect for Castle and Beckett's relationship as we head to the end of Castle's season? — Dana
ADAM: The bumps that we've hinted at before will be exacerbated by two men who come into Beckett's life. First, Beckett will be assigned to protect multimillionaire inventor Erik Vaughn (Ioan Gruffudd) — in his private hotel penthouse. "If Castle aspired to be someone, he'd aspire to be this guy," creator Andrew W. Marlowe says. "Castle's really determined to solve the case and get his girlfriend away from him." During their alone time, Erik will ask Beckett some tough questions about where her relationship with Castle is headed. Unfortunately, as Beckett wrestles with those questions in the season's penultimate episode, she'll cross paths with a federal investigator (Carlos Bernard) who might offer some different answers. "He opens Beckett's eyes on other possibilities that might be out there for her," Marlowe teases.

The Voice rose to a season high Monday night.
The two-hour episode drew 14.3 million viewers and a 5.1 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, posting the show's best rating since March 12, 2012. NBC's news special Terror in Boston, which pre-empted Revolution, earned 8.8 million ...

Monday's Castle will once again invite out titular mystery writer to put his overactive imagination to work.
In our exclusive sneak peek at Monday's episode (10/9c, ABC) below, Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic) snoop around their latest crime scene only to find several odd clues. The oddest, of course, are the large animal-like footprints. For Castle, there is only one reasonable explanation: The murderer is Bigfoot! ...

Our top moments of the week:
14. The First (Hair)Cut Is the Deepest: On The Mindy Project, our fearless heroine develops a crush on a cool pastor who unfortunately finds her to be a little self-absorbed. To show him how altruistic she is, she volunteers to treat the inmates at a women's prison, but when she gives one woman candy and a pashmina, it incites a riot, during which Mindy loses a giant chunk of her hair.
13. Most Heartbreaking Finale: We know we're supposed to root for Raylan on Justified, but it's Boyd and Ava's unhappy ending that hits home on the season finale. After forces conspire to separate Boyd and Ava as they're stealing Delroy's body from the funeral home (no body, no murder charges!), Ava ends up getting arrested. With his fiancée being carted off to jail, Boyd breaks into the couple's dream home and stares longingly at the backyard — and the...
The Voice slipped, but still dominated Monday, while two freshmen dramas hit lows.
NBC singing competition's two-hour episode drew 13.1 million viewers and a 4.6 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, down two-tenths from last week's premiere. Lead-out Revolution (6.6 million, 2.3) dropped three-tenths to a series low.

Usually, Richard Castle's overactive imagination is a good thing — so good that as he helps his NYPD buddies solve scores of murders, you often wonder how they'd ever get along without him. In the set-up for Castle's clever lark of a 100th episode on ABC (Monday, 10:01/9:01c), they're forced to go solo as Castle (Nathan Fillion in rare form) stews in boredom in his apartment, nursing a busted leg. Until he picks up his new birthday binoculars and goes all Jimmy Stewart-in-Rear Window, convinced he's witnessed a murder across the street, eventually drawing his beloved Beckett and intrepid daughter Alexis into the Hitchcockian-homage intrigue. The more agitated Castle gets, the more skeptical everyone else becomes, and as the twists and comically suspenseful close calls pile up, leading to yet another chewing-out by that spoilsport Capt. Gates, we're treated to an entertaining object lesson in the "seeing isn't believing" playbook. Well done, including the timely subplot involving the murder of an IRS agent which, even when chair-bound, Castle can't help inadvertently helping his friends figure out.
