-Ratings Breakdown:
It was all about Super Bowl XLV: Green Bay vs. Pittsburgh, naturally, with the primetime portion of the match-up on Fox at an estimated 48.6 rating/71 share in the overnights from approximately 7-10:15 p.m. Here is the half-hour breakdown:

Super Bowl XLV (Fox)
7:00 p.m.: 46.0/70
7:30 p.m.: 47.2/71
8:00 p.m.: 47.4.70
8:30 p.m.: 48.5/71
9:00 p.m.: 50.0/72
9:30 p.m.: 50.9/72
10:00 p.m.: 52.3/74

As a reminder, results for any live sporting event are always approximate.

Comparably, Green Bay vs. Pittsburgh last night outdelivered Super Bowl XLIV: Indianapolis vs. New Orleans on the year-ago evening on CBS (47.9/71 in the overnights on February 7, 2010) by one percent. And it beat Super Bowl XLIII: Arizona vs. Pittsburgh on NBC on Sunday, Feb. 1, 2009 (42.1/65) by 15 percent. As a benchmark, last year’s Indianapolis/New Orleans match-up averaged 106.48 million viewers, so it is safe to predict Green Bay vs. Pittsburgh will hover around the 110 million total viewer mark.

Leading out of Super Bowl XLV was the post-game at an estimated 35.4/54 in the overnights from 10:15-10:30 p.m. The special edition of Glee, featuring guest star Katie Couric, followed with a record high 16.5/28 from 10:30-11:30 p.m. But one year earlier, CBS introduced Undercover Boss out of The Super Bowl and it was considerably stronger at a 22.5/36 (which translated into 38.65 million viewers).

Don’t forget to visit PIFeedback.com for the fast affiliate results at approximately 12 p.m. today.

Elsewhere, and there was very little, CBS populated the evening with repeats of granddaddy 60 Minutes (#2: 3.1/ 5), Undercover Boss (#2: 2.5/ 4), CSI: Miami (#2: 2.4/ 4) and Hawaii Five-O (#2: 3.5/ 6). NBC aired back-to-back repeats of recent returnee Who Do You Think You Are? (#4: 1.3/ 2 from 7-9 p.m.), followed by a two-hour edition of Dateline (2.5/ 4 from 9-11 p.m.). And ABC ran two repeat episodes of America’s Funniest Home Videos (#3: 1.8/ 3 from 7-9 p.m.) and theatrical Knocked Up (1.9/ 3 from 9-11 p.m.), which must have aired on cable net E! about 50 times already.

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.
