Monday TV Picks: 'Castle' on ABC
TV picks for Monday, Jan. 23, 2012 include "Castle" on ABC; "Who's Still Standing?" on NBC; "Pretty Little Liars" on ABC Family.
Tonight in Prime Time
This very popular crime drama is doing just fine in its fourth season, mostly due to the great chemistry between mystery novelist Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) and New York detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic). (Look for a 1940s-themed episode next month. Wow, these guys look great in period duds!). Tonight's episode involves the death of a famous dog trainer and a suspect reality-TV star. Suspect? Say it isn't so. 10 p.m. Monday on ABC (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
