-Ratings Breakdown:
It was an easy opening week overnight victory for ABC, which bested No. 2 CBS by 62 percent. But either CBS or NBC is the network to beat among adults 18-49.

Dancing With the Stars on ABC, which will feature the elimination of two contestants tonight, took top-rated overnight honors for the evening with an 11.6/18 from 8-10 p.m. And that led into the season-finale of crime solver Castle at a dominant (and above average) 8.4/14 at 10 p.m. Although facing The Voice cost Dancing With the Stars some audience (-19 percent year-to-year last night), the success of the Big 3 networks on Monday proves that there is room for three hit series in a time period.

Here is the half-hour breakdown for Dancing With the Stars:

Dancing With the Stars (ABC)
8:00 p.m.: 10.9/17 (#1)
8:30 p.m.: 11.4/17 (#1)
9:00 p.m.: 12.2/18 (#1)
9:30 p.m.: 12.0/18 (#1)

In other season-ending news, a one-hour edition of sitcom 2 Broke Girls on CBS, featuring guest star Martha Stewart, tied the first half of NBC’s The Voice with a second-place 6.5/10 from 8-9 p.m. Compared to year-ago occupants How I Met Your Mother (4.7/ 7 on 5/09/11) and Mad Love (3.6/ 6), this was an increase of a hefty 57 percent. And it was a very positive season one finale for breakout hit 2 Broke Girls.

Next on CBS was Two and a Half Men, which finished second in the 9 p.m. half-hour with a 7.6/11, followed by compatible Mike & Molly (#3: 6.7/10) and Hawaii Five-O (#2: 6.0/10) from 9:30-11 p.m. Expect a new sitcom to potentially step into the Monday 8:30 p.m. half-hour in place of 2 Broke Girls, which is likely to shift to Thursday next season.

Over at NBC, the final live performance show of The Voice for the season scored a very solid 6.7/10 from 8-10 p.m., which was its best overnight average since April 2. Expect The Voice to finish first overall for the evening among adults 18-49. Here is the half-hour breakdown:

The Voice (NBC)
8:00 p.m.: 6.4/10 (#2)
8:30 p.m.: 6.7/10 (#2)
9:00 p.m.: 6.9/10 (#3)
9:30 p.m.: 6.8/10 (#2)

Tonight, of course, is The Voice season-ender.

At 10 p.m., Smash on NBC, which concludes its first season next Monday, finished third with a 4.4/ 7. While 65 percent retention out of the 9:30 p.m. portion of The Voice is nothing extraordinary, hats off to NBC for airing Smash uninterrupted and giving it an early second season renewal. This is exactly how a network should treat a series it believes in.

Elsewhere, Fox populated this first Monday in May with Bones (#4: 4.6/ 7) and House (#4: 4.0/ 6), which officially concludes on May 21. And The CW aired its regular line-up of Gossip Girl (#5: 1.0/ 2) and Hart of Dixie (#5: 1.2/ 2), which are both waiting word on their fates. Chances are The CW will grant Gossip Girl one final season to bid officially adieu, while Hart of Dixie will be set loose.

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.
