-Ratings Breakdown:
It was ABC versus CBS last night, with dominant the Eye net besting the home of Dancing With the Stars by two percent in the overnights. In the distant No. 3 spot was NBC, followed by Fox and The CW, which aired repeats on the year-ago evening (hence the triple-digit percent increase).

NCIS on CBS led the 8 p.m. hour (and evening) with an 11.5 rating/19 share in the overnights. But ABC perked up to a second-place 8.2/13 care of Dancing With the Stars clips themed “The Story So Far.” Comparably, the Dancing With the Stars special outdelivered regularly scheduled sitcoms Last Man Standing (4.8/ and Cougar Town (3.3/ 5) one week earlier by 102 percent.

ABC moved into the top spot at 9 p.m. care of the first live Dancing With the Stars Results Show of the spring season at an 11.5/18 (which was 14 percent below the 13.3/20 one year earlier). Comparably, the departure of Martina Navratilova beat NCIS: Los Angeles on CBS (#2: 9.3/14) by 24 percent in the overnights.

Lifted by Dancing With the Stars (which could be factored into the 10 p.m. half-hour by one minute or two), Body of Proof on ABC rose to a first-place 7.4/13 at 10 p.m. Comparably, that beat on-the-fence freshman drama Unforgettable on CBS (#2: 6.8/11) by nine percent. One year earlier, Body of Proof debuted with a 9.4/15 on 3/29/11. Given the lack of available time periods, chances of Unforgettable returning are slim.

Over at NBC, week three of reality competition Fashion Star dipped to a very distant third-place 2.8/ 5 in the overnights at 10 p.m., which was 20 percent below one week earlier (three-week overnight track: 3.4/ 6 – 3.5/ 6 – 2.8/ 5). Retention for Fashion Star out of the 9:30 p.m. portion of tired The Biggest Loser (3.9/ 6) was 72 percent. Overall, The Biggest Loser averaged a 3.7/ 6 from 8-10 p.m., which was down by 23 percent from one year earlier (4.7/ 7 on 3/29/11). Here is the half-hour breakdown:

The Biggest Loser (NBC)
8:00 p.m.: 3.6/ 6 (#3)
8:30 p.m.: 3.5/ 6 (#3)
9:00 p.m.: 3.8/ 6 (#3)
9:30 p.m.: 3.9/ 6 (#3)

At this point, The Biggest Loser needs to be trimmed to one hour.

Elsewhere, Fox’s temporarily revamped sitcom Tuesday continues to under-perform care of Raising Hope (#4: 2.8/ 5), a repeat of Raising Hope (#4: 2.0/ 3), which stepped in for yanked I Hate My Teenage Daughter, New Girl (#4: 3.6/ 6) and recent sophomore returnee Breaking In (#4: 1.9/ 3). Although New Girl will resonate among adults 18-49, the absence of Glee as its lead-in continues to negatively impact the freshman comedy. As a reminder, Glee returns to the Tuesday 8 p.m. hour on April 10, leading to New Girl and the return of Raising Hope to 9:30 p.m.

Last, and very least was The CW’s low-rated combination of 90210 (#5: 1.1/ 2) and Ringer (#5: 1.1/ 2), which both should be concluding.

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.
