Castle Writer Statistics

The statistics on this page are current to S07E20.

Here are some statistics on the writers of Castle.

There have been many writers of Castle episodes over the past and present seasons. This page is designed to give you some statistics on how the episodes from each writer perform.

To qualify for analysis, the writer must have written at least 3 episodes. The 13 writers on this list have written the vast majority of episodes between them, so very little data is lost as there are only a few one-off writers the show has had over the last 6 seasons.

Writer number 16 with a place on the chart is Jim Adler, who most recently wrote S06E17. He joins the chart in last place on ranked ratings, but third last place on ranked audience.

If a writer wrote an episode in coalition with another writer, the statistics from that episode count toward each writer as if they wrote it alone.

The following table ranks the writers by their success with both ratings and audiences. Further down you can see which episodes each writer wrote, along with their stats again.
