-Ratings Breakdown:
Dancing With the Stars led ABC to an easy Monday victory, with the two-hour extravaganza at a 12.8 rating/20 share in the overnights from 8-10 p.m. But second-place NBC is poised for victory among adults 18-49 thanks to The Voice, which scored a 7.7/12 from 8-10 p.m. Comparably, The Voice built from year-ago occupants All Together Now: A Celebration of Service (2.8/ 4 on 3/28/11) and The Event (3.1/ 5) by 161 percent. And still potent Dancing With the Stars dipped by 17 percent from the 15.5/23 one year earlier.

Here are the half-hour breakdowns:

Dancing With the Stars (ABC)
8:00 p.m.: 12.1/19 (#1)
8:30 p.m.: 12.9/20 (#1)
9:00 p.m.: 13.2/20 (#1)
9:30 p.m.: 13.0/20 (#1)

The Voice (NBC)
8:00 p.m.: 7.3/11 (#2)
8:30 p.m.: 7.8/12 (#2)
9:00 p.m.: 7.7/12 (#2)
9:30 p.m.: 8.0/12 (#2)

There is room, no doubt, for two successful reality competitions in the same block. Although anything is possible, my pick to exit Dancing With the Stars tonight is tennis great Martina Navratilova. Second choice: Melissa “Half Pint” Gilbert, who is better on the prairie than on the dance floor.

Dancing With the Stars led into Castle with a dominant 8.6/14 in the overnights at 10 p.m. (which was on par from the 8.8/14 one year earlier). Smash on NBC finished second (ahead of a repeat of Hawaii Five-O on CBS) with a 4.7/ 8. Comparably, retention for Castle out of the 9:30 p.m. portion of Dancing With the Stars was 66 percent, while Smash held 59 percent of The Voice lead-in.

In season (or series) finale news, a two-hour edition of drama Alcatraz on Fox concluded with a fourth-place 3.5/ 5 from 8-10 p.m. Comparably, that was a loss of 49 percent from its two-hour series opener on January 16 (6.8/10). That said, there is no reason to expect Alcatraz back for a second season. Here is the half-hour breakdown:

Alcatraz (Fox)
8:00 p.m.: 3.6/ 6 (#4)
8:30 p.m.: 3.4/ 5 (#4)
9:00 p.m.: 3.4/ 5 (#4)
9:30 p.m.: 3.4/ 5 (#4)

Elsewhere, CBS traveled the repeat route with its combination of How I Met Your Mother (#3: 3.7/ 6), 2 Broke Girls (#3: 4.0/ 6), Two and a Half Men (#3: 4.6/ 7), Mike & Molly (#3: 4.2/ 6) and Hawaii Five-O (#3: 4.4/ 7). And The CW was barely visible with 2009 theatrical Confessions of a Shopaholic (#5: 0.7/ 1 from 8-10 p.m.)

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.
