Watch on Hulu / ABC site
You can watch the episodes of Castle on Hulu or through the Full Episode Viewer on the ABC website. Number of views through these services can be tracked and are taken into consideration for overall success of the show so even if you’ve already seen the episode try and find some time to watch it again in the week after it airs.
Buy the Episodes on iTunes
You can buy individual episodes from iTunes usually a day after they are broadcast. You can also subscribe to the entire season. We recommend this option if you’re in a position to take advantage of it because it shows your long term commitment to the series.
Order the DVD & Book
This one is very important, this shows directly that ABC can make money from the show. Season 1 is now available on DVD and Richard Castle’s novel “Heat Wave” is also available.

I am so glad you started this topic, Castle Admin! I was just returning to the forum after several weeks due to illness in the family and thought “I should start a topic about how we should contact ABC to make our feelings known!” Then I saw your topic! It's true – now is the time to express our feelings. Too many times, fans of shows wait until the show is cancelled and then they protest – but while the show is on the air and decisions can be made is the time to act! Thanks again – I'm going to ABC.com right away, which was going to have been my suggestion! Thanks for the phone info, too.

One thing we all can do is to log on to tv.com and give the show and episodes our top rating, and write reviews of the show and the episodes, and discuss on the forum (each post can be short), if we get more action there other tv.com-users will notice, and check out the show. At least I started watching a few shows because they were on the top 20 list on the front page – a list based on the amount of fan input.

Just hanging out watching football and thought I'd check to make sure Castle was going to be around for awhile. Hopped on the site…registered…found this post and clicked on the link to send my best Castle regards to the network.
My wife and I enjoy the show (and it's the only show we sit down and watch together).
Here's hoping there is a Season 3.
