-Yesterday’s Losers (excluding repeats):
One Tree Hill (CW)


-Ratings Breakdown:
Due to President Obama’s State of the Union Address, all results in primetime are estimated. With that in mind, CBS won the 8 p.m. hour in the overnights care of an encore telecast of NCIS at an 8.7 rating/13 share. Even non-original episodes of NCIS still pack the audience in. Next was an abbreviated one-hour version of NBC’s The Biggest Loser (5.5/ 8), which always resonates among adults 18-49, followed by a repeat of Fox’s Glee (3.8/ 6), a repeat of ABC’s on-the-fence No Ordinary Family (#4: 3.0/ 5), and One Tree Hill on The CW (1.6/ 2). Considering One Tree Hill faced three repeats, this overnight performance is clearly a “loser.”

The approximate one-hour State of the Address performed as followed from 9-10 p.m.

State of the Union Address
CBS: 6.1/ 9
NBC: 6.0/ 9
ABC: 5.7/ 9
Fox: 2.6/ 4

Combined, this is a 20.4 rating/31 share in the overnights for the four broadcast networks. But keep in mind, again, that anything of a live nature is always estimated.

Over at The CW, freshman drama Hellcats moved into the Wednesday 9 p.m. hour with a 1.7/ 2, which was six percent above lead-in One Tree Hill. Let’s see what happens next week, of course, when Hellcats is facing regularly scheduled programming.

In the 10 p.m. half-hour was the response to President Obama’s speech as follows:

ABC: 5.7/ 9, CBS and NBC: 5.6/ 8 each

Filling the 10:30 p.m. half-hour was a repeat of The Big Bang Theory on CBS (4.4/ 7), continued news coverage on NBC (4.0/ 6), and a repeat of Cougar Town on ABC (2.6/ 4). As a reminder, all results from this evening are approximate.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
