-Rating Results:
The Green Bay Packers at the Houston Texans on Sunday Night Football kept NBC in the overnight winner’s circle with an estimated 12.8 rating/20 share for the primetime portion from 8:30-11 p.m. And that, of course, finished a solid first in each half-hour. Coverage of the game in the 11 p.m. half-hour scored a 10.6/19. As a reminder, results for any live sporting event are always estimated.

Earlier in the evening on NBC was pre-game Football Night in America at a 1.6/ 3 at 7 p.m. (#4), a 4.3/ 7 at 7:30 p.m. (#3) and a dominant 8.3/13 at 8 p.m.

Fox also traveled the sports route, but Game 1 of The National League Baseball Championship Series (in place of the regularly scheduled animated comedies) paled in comparison with an approximate 4.6/ 7 from 8:30-11 p.m. The Baseball Pre-Game scored a 5.3/ 9 at 8 p.m. (#4). Earlier in the evening on Fox was a football overrun at a very dominant 12.2/21 in the 7 p.m. half-hour, followed by post-game The OT at a 7.7/13 (#2) at 7:30 p.m.

Over at CBS, it was business as usual care of the regularly scheduled combination of granddaddy 60 Minutes (#2: 9.1/15), which will never go off the air, The Amazing Race (#3: 6.7/10), older-skewing The Good Wife (#2: 7.0/10) and relocated The Mentalist (#2: 7.6/12), which built from The Good Wife by nine percent. Year-to-year, The Mentalist also increased from former occupant CSI: Miami (6.7/11 on 10/16/11) by 13 percent.

ABC, meanwhile, had more mixed news on this third Sunday of the new TV season with its line-up of veteran America’s Funniest Home Videos (#3: 3.7/ 6), sophomore Once Upon a Time (#3: 6.4/10), relocated Revenge (#3: 5.9/ 9) and week three of 666 Park Avenue (#4: 3.7/ 6). Although 666 Park Avenue did level off from one week earlier, comparably it was still down by 21 percent from failed year-ago occupant Pan Am (4.7/ 8 on 10/16/11). Three week overnight track for 666 Park Avenue: 5.3/ 9 – 3.7/ 6 – 3.7/ 6).

Revenge, meanwhile, remained close to year-ago overnight levels from former occupant Desperate Housewives (6.2/ 9 on 10/16/11), and demo friendly Once Upon a Time built from the 7:30 p.m. portion of America’s Funniest Home Videos (4.2/ 7) by a considerable 52 percent. Considering Desperate Housewives was at record low ratings last season, Revenge is a bit of a disappointment on Sunday.

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.
