Castle Marathon On TNT September 15; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of September 5, 2011)

We announced TNT's Fall 2011 schedule already and we also announced that TNT has gotten the cable syndication rights to Castle beginning in summer 2012, but before that, TNT will have a special promotional marathon of Castle. The marathon will air Wednesday, Sept. 15 from 3pm-11pm with eight episodes from seasons 1-3. It is designed to give promotion to ABC's upcoming fourth season of the series and also spots for the third season DVD and ABC's new fall series.
Castle will start airing once a week on TNT starting next summer with the first two seasons before it starts airing more often in 2013. Episodes airing for the marathon stunt are: "A Chill Goes Through Her Veins" from season one, "A Rose for Everafter" from season two, the season two finale "A Deadly Game," the season three premiere "A Deadly Affair," "Punked" from season three, "Nikki Heat" from season three, "Knockdown" from season three, and the third season finale "Knockout." The latter is the last episode to air so far as we wait for the season premiere on Monday, Sept. 19 at 10pm on ABC. ABC will also re-air the third season finale on Monday, Sept. 12 at 10pm.
Now, after three seasons, Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett's (Stana Katic) relationship has grown even stronger as they've dodged bullets, captured killers and solved countless murder cases in their unorthodox partnership. But in the explosive Season 3 finale, NYPD Captain Roy Montgomery -- who we learned had a connection to the unsolved murder of Beckett's mother -- was shot and killed by a man tied to that crime. As the episode came to a close ***SPOILER ALERT****, Beckett, who was speaking about her Captain at his funeral, took a bullet from a sniper's rifle and was last seen on the ground with life fading out of her. Will she survive...?
Tune in for the marathon on TNT Sept. 15 starting at 3pm before the new season starts Sept. 19 on ABC. Our review of the third season DVD will be coming soon on Digital Digest (our Saturday blog feature). Stay tuned!
