-Ratings Breakdown:
ABC danced its way to another overnight Monday victory with a first-place finish in each of the six half-hours care of its combination of Dancing With the Stars (11.8 rating/18 from 8-10 p.m.) and Castle (7.9/13 at 10 p.m.). Head-to-head, Dancing With the Stars almost doubled The Voice on NBC (6.0/ 9 from 8-10 p.m.) in the overnights. But The Voice will hold a noticeable advantage among adults 18-49, and Dancing With the Stars dipped by 20 percent from one year earlier (versus a 14.8/22 on 5/02/11). The Voice, in contrast, built from year-ago occupants Chuck (2.9/ 4 on 5/02/11) and The Event (2.8/ 4) by 111 percent.

Here is the half-hour breakdown for both Dancing With the Stars and The Voice:

Dancing With the Stars (ABC)
8:00 p.m.: 10.9/17 (#1)
8:30 p.m.: 11.8/18 (#1)
9:00 p.m.: 12.2/18 (#1)
9:30 p.m.: 12.2/18 (#1)

The Voice (NBC)
8:00 p.m.: 5.8/ 9 (#2)
8:30 p.m.: 6.0/ 9 (#2)
9:00 p.m.: 6.1/ 9 (#3)
9:30 p.m.: 6.0/ 9 (#3)

As for who I predict will be exiting Dancing With the Stars tonight, it looks it will be the battle of Half Pink versus Urkel, with Melissa Gilbert the more vulnerable of the two. Personally speaking, I thought the judges were way too harsh on Melissa last night.

At 10 p.m., Smash on NBC finished third with a series-low 4.1/ 7 in the overnights. While that did outdeliver year-ago occupant Law & Order: Los Angeles (#3: 3.4/ 5) by 21 percent, retention out of the 9:30 p.m. portion of The Voice was lacking at 68 percent.

It was business as usual on CBS with its solid line-up of How I Met Your Mother (#3: 5.2/ 8), 2 Broke Girls (#3: 5.9/ 9), which really pushed the envelope, so to speak, last night, Two and a Half Men (#2: 7.3/11), Mike & Molly (#2: 6.5/10) and Hawaii Five-O (#2: 7.1/11), which featured a cross-over episode with NCIS: Los Angeles. All five CBS series built year-to-year (Two and a Half Men was a repeat one year earlier, however), with 2 Broke Girls, in particular, up by 51 percent from failed year-ago occupant Mad Love (3.9/ 6 on 5/02/11).

Elsewhere, Fox finished fourth with its pairing of Bones (#4: 4.9/ 7) and House (#4: 4.3/ 6), which officially concludes on May 21. And The CW was a distant fifth, as usual, with Gossip Girl (#5: 1.1/ 2), which really should be concluding at this point, and on-the-fence Hart of Dixie (#5: 1.2/ 2).

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.
