CASTLE - "Reality Star Struck" - Castle & Beckett get an up-close-and-personal view of a "Real Housewives"-esque reality TV series, "The Wives of Wall Street," when they investigate the murder of the show's rising young star. Meanwhile, Castle's attempt to give Beckett a Valentine's Day gift goes horribly wrong, on "Castle," MONDAY, FEBRUARY 11 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET) on ABC.

Castle (9 p.m. ABC/Ch. 4) engages in a bit of wish fulfillment tonight. The star of a reality show is murdered, and Castle and Beckett investigate.
The fictional show in question here is titled "The Wives of Wall Street," and it's clearly a reference to the multitude of "Real Housewives" shows. And who hasn't wanted to see some of those ladies, um, retired?
OK, I'm not suggesting anyone should die. Although it wouldn't bother me if we killed off a whole bunch of shows.
