-Ratings Breakdown:
ABC led this atypical fifth Monday of the new season in the overnights, which featured the third (and finale) live Presidential Debate between President Barack Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. A one-hour edition of Dancing With the Stars on ABC (a non-elimination week) won the 8-9 p.m. time period with a 9.8 rating/15 share. But competing The Voice on NBC (#2: 7.8/12), also a one-hour installment, is a lock for dominance among adults 18-49. Comparably, Dancing With the Stars dipped by 23 percent in the overnights from the 8-9 p.m. portion of the year-ago telecast (12.7/19 on 10/24/11). The Voice, in contrast, increased by a whopping 189 percent from the year-ago 8-9 p.m. portion of former time period occupant The Sing Off (2.7/ 4 on 10/24/11).

CBS filled the 8-9 p.m. hour with repeats of The Big Bang Theory (#3: 6.1/ 9) and 2 Broke Girls (#4: 4.9/ 7), and The CW aired should-be-canceled 90210 (#5: 0.9/ 1), which sunk by 31 percent from year-ago occupant Gossip Girl (1.3/ 2 on 10/24/11). Over at Fox (which did not feature the debate), the seventh (and final) match-up between San Francisco and St, Louis in the Major League Baseball National League Championship Series averaged an estimated 6.1/ 9 in the overnights in primetime. One year earlier, game five of Texas versus St. Louis was considerably higher at a 9.5/15 in the overnights on 10/24/11.

Keep in mind, of course, that results for any live event are always approximate.

Overnights for the third Presidential Debate resulted in NBC leading the trio, with an estimated 8.3/11 from 9-10:30 p.m. A very close second was coverage on ABC at a 7.9/11, followed by CBS at a 6.1/ 9. Combined, the three-network tally for this last debate was a very ample 22.3/31 in the overnights.

Capping off the evening on The CW was soon-to-conclude Gossip Girl at a miniscule 0.8/ 1 from 9-10 p.m., which dropped by 53 percent from year-ago occupant Hart of Dixie (1.7/ 2 on 10/24/11). The CW announced last May that Sex and the City prequel The Carrie Diaries will replace Gossip Girl in the Monday 9 p.m. hour in midseason. But a wiser move would be to position promising looking The Carrie Diaries in the Monday 8 p.m. hour (instead of burying it behind 90210).

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.
