That lifted lead-out The Simpsons to a season high 10.2/15 (#2) at 8 p.m. followed by the series-premiere of animated Napoleon Dynamite at a 6.0/ 9 at 8:30 p.m. Comparably, Napoleon Dynamite finished fourth in the overnights at 8:30 p.m., with retention out of The Simpsons of 59 percent. While the retention could have been better, Napoleon Dynamite was indeed sampled.

Next on Fox was Family Guy at a 5.5/ 8 (#3) at 9 p.m., followed by a second episode of Napoleon Dynamite at a 4.5/ 7 (#4) at 9:30 p.m.

Over at NBC, aforementioned The 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards led the 8-11 p.m. block, with a solid 11.7 rating/18 share and the half-hour breakdown as follows:

The 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards (NBC)
8:00 p.m.: 11.2/17 (#1)
8:30 p.m.: 11.5/17 (#1)
9:00 p.m.: 11.3/17 (#1)
9:30 p.m.: 11.5/17 (#1)

For a listing of all the Golden Globe winners in television, scroll down to Network Short Items. Earlier in the evening on NBC was the Golden Globes Red Arrival special at a third-place 3.8/ 6 from 7-8 p.m.

In season-premiere news, Undercover Boss returned on CBS with a second-place 7.3/11 in the overnights at 8 p.m., which is certainly respectable given the competition. Comparably, that was equal to the 7:30 p.m. portion of 60 Minutes and it is expected to build considerably among adults 18-49. Overall, 60 Minutes finished second from 7-8 p.m. with a 6.7/10.

Also on CBS was older-skewing The Good Wife at 9 p.m. (#2: 6.8/10) and a repeat of CSI: Miami at 10 p.m. (#2: 5.0/ 8).

Fourth overall for the evening was ABC, meanwhile, with its combination of America’s Funniest Home Videos (#4: 2.9/ 5), which took a hit opposite football on Fox, freshman hit Once Upon a Time (#3: 6.1/ 9), Desperate Housewives (#3; 5.3/ and failed recent entry Pan Am (#3: 2.9/ 5).

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.

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.
