Monday on Utah TV: "Castle" takes down reality TV

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?
