What's Up With Castle?
Today, it was announced that co-star Stana Katic will not return for a potential ninth season. In fact, she wasn't even approached to come back. Negotiations are reportedly underway with star Nathan Fillion, who plays the titular character. The question is, what will he do? It seems evident that if he signs on, there will be a ninth season of Castle, as ABC seemingly is content with the ratings so long as they can bring it back at lower costs and a lower licensing fee. But will Fillion walk away knowing that his co-star isn't returning and after seeing the extremely negative reaction this news has received. So, this seems to be the year of contracts and renewals. Let me dumb it down to the extreme:

Nathan Fillion = Castle
No Nathan Fillion = Castle
No Nathan Fillion = Possibly Nashville
No Nashville = Probably The Catch

No Tim Allen = No Last Man Standing and maybe no Dr Ken
Tim Allen = Last Man Standing and Dr Ken

No Tim Allen = The Real O'Neals
Fifth Comedy Hour = The Real O'Neals
Tim Allen + Four Comedy Hours = No Real O'Neals
