-Ratings Breakdown:
ABC danced its way to another overnight Monday victory care of Dancing with the Stars, which stood well above anything else last night with a 14.8 rating/22 share from 8-10 p.m. The half-hour breakdown was as follows: 13.6/21 – 14.8/22 – 15.6/23 – 15.4/23. My pick to bid adieu tonight: Ralph “The Karate Kid” Macchio.

Next on ABC was the season-finale of Castle at a dominant 8.6/14 at 10 p.m. Comparably, however, retention out of the 9:30 p.m. portion of Dancing with the Stars was only 56 percent.

In series-finale news, CBS sitcom Mad Love, which the viewers were never mad about, earned its cancellation stripes with a third-place 3.9/ 6 at 8:30 p.m. Comparably, that dipped from the season-finale of demo friendly lead-in How I Met Your Mother (#3: 5.2/ 8 at 8 p.m.) by 25 percent. Next was a repeat of Two and a Half Men (#2: 4.6/ 7 at 9 p.m.), which will feature new cast member Ashton Kutcher next season, followed by the season-finales of Mike & Molly (#2: 5.7/ 8) and Hawaii Five-O (#2: 6.7/11) from 9:30-11 p.m. Worth noting for sure-to-be renewed Hawaii Five-O was the 18 percent overnight growth out of Mike & Molly.

Elsewhere, Fox had nothing unusual to report with its combination of House (#2: 6.0/ 9), which moves to Mondays at 9 p.m. out of new Steven Spielberg drama Terra Nova next fall, and canceled The Chicago Code (#3: 4./3/ 6). NBC was out of the competitive loop as always with its line-up of the season-finale of Chuck (#4: 2.9/ 5), which heads to Fridays at 8 p.m. next fall, and new episodes of canceled The Event (#4: 2.8/ 4) and Law & Order: Los Angeles (#3: 3.3/ 6). And The CW aired the season-finale episodes of 90210 (#5: 1.4/ 2) and Gossip Girl (#5: 1.2/ 2), which should have been series-enders.

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.
