Ratings Breakdown:
On your mark, get set…go! It is the official start of the new TV season. Led by the two-hour season premiere of Dancing With the Stars, ABC won this first night of 2012-13 in the overnights. But the Monday tide has turned courtesy of The Voice, which is poised to lead NBC to victory among adults 18-49. Opposite The Voice, dominant Dancing With the Stars, featuring its first-ever all-star edition, dipped by 24 percent from the year-ago season-opener with a 10.4 rating/15 share from 8-10 p.m. (versus a 13.6/20 on 9/19/11). While Dancing With the Stars still managed to win in the overnights for the evening, the double-digit percent loss is concerning.

Dancing With the Stars led into the fifth season-premiere of older skewing Castle at a 7.4/12 in the overnights at 10 p.m., which versus the year-ago opener (9.2/15 on 9/19/11) was down by 20 percent. Castle, of course, is dependent on the lead-in support from Dancing With the Stars. If Dancing is down, so is Castle.

The Voice on NBC, meanwhile, finished a solid second behind Dancing With the Stars with an 8.2/12 in the overnights from 8-10 p.m. And that, comparably, built by a whopping 134 percent from a two-hour edition of former time period occupant The Sing Off on the year-ago opening Monday (3.5/ 5 on 9/19/11). Needless to say, it was the right decision for NBC to air a fall edition of The Voice.

At 10 p.m. on NBC was week two of new drama Revolution, which finished second (ahead of the season-premiere of Hawaii Five-O on CBS) with a 6.3/11. Comparably, Revolution bested the series-premiere of short-lived former time period occupant The Playboy Club (3.9/ 6 on 9/19/11) by a hefty 62 percent. And the erosion from last Monday’s inflated series-premiere (7.9/13 on 9/17/12) was a typical 20 percent. Right now, Revolution is still clearly a “winner.”

CBS, unfortunately, has sprung a leak. While you have to take into consideration the mammoth sampling for Ashton Kutcher on Two and a Half Men last fall, a 5.9 metered market rating overall in primetime is still about 25-percent below what the network eventually settled in at on Monday in fourth quarter. Season eight of How I Met Your Mother scored a respectable third-place 6.2/ 9 in the overnights at 8 p.m. (down 22 percent from the 8.0/12 for the one-hour series-opener on 9/19/11). And that will certainly still give CBS traction in the time period among adults 18-49. But the series-premiere of sitcom Partners dipped to fourth with a 4.7/ 7 at 8:30 p.m., which was down by a hefty 40 percent from the time period debut of former occupant 2 Broke Girls (7.9/11 on 9/26/11). All things considered (lead-in, competition, year-ago time period performance, the buzz factor, etc.), consider Partners DOA.

Thankfully for CBS, relocated 2 Broke Girls rose to a 6.8/10 at 9 p.m. But that was still down by double-digits even after the dust settled with Ashton Kutcher on former time period occupant Two and a Half Men. Compatible Mike & Molly opened season three with a 6.3/ 9 at 9:30 p.m. (#3), but that was off by a noticeable 28 percent from its year-ago season-opener (8.8/13 on 9/26/11). And the weaker lead-in support resulted in a third-place 5.8/ 9 for the third season-premiere of Hawaii Five-O at 10 p.m., which was 27 percent below its year-ago premiere (8.0/13 on 9/19/11).

Partners on CBS, no doubt, could cause the network considerable trouble on Monday. And moving 2 Broke Girls into the 9 p.m. half-hour might have been premature.

In week two news, the cancellation clock is already ticking on Mob Doctor. The new Fox drama dipped to a mere 2.7/ 4 in the overnights from 9-10 p.m. (distant #4), with erosion of 27 percent from its week-ago launch (3.7/ 6 on 9/17). And retention out of the 8:30 p.m. portion of Bones (#3: 5.1/ 7) was only 53 percent. The Mob Doctor or Partners could ultimately be the first new series cancellation of the season.

Overall, Bones scored a respectable 5.1/ 7 (#3) from 8-9 p.m., which trailed the debut of year-ago failed time period occupant Terra Nova (6.4/ 9 on 9/26/11) by 20 percent.

The CW capped off this first night of the new TV season with back-to-back episodes of dud Canadian drama The L.A. Complex at an almost invisible 0.4/ 1 in the overnights from 8-10 p.m. The new seasons of 90210 and Gossip Girl do not begin until Oct. 8.

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.
