-Ratings Breakdown:
Game one of The World Series on Fox (Giants 8, Tigers 3) topped the Wednesday overnights, with an estimated 9.3 rating/15 share in primetime. The peak was a 9.7/15 from 9-10 p.m. Comparably, San Francisco versus Detroit last night was just two percent below game one of Texas vs. St. Louis one year earlier (9.5/15 on Wednesday 10/11/11), and that translated into 14.17 million viewers and a 4.2 rating/12 share among adults 18-49 (based on the Live Plus Same day Results).

The World Series Pre-Game on Fox scored an estimated 7.5/13 (#1) in the 8 p.m. half-hour. Don’t forget that results for any live sporting event are always approximate.

CBS held up well opposite baseball with its line-up of Survivor: Philippines (#2: 6.9/11), Criminal Minds (#3: 7.5/11) and veteran CSI (#2: 6.6/11), which bested No. 3 Nashville in the 10 p.m. hour (4.8/ 8) by 37 percent in the overnights. And the trio, on average, increased by three percent from the year-ago evening (which included an encore telecast of Criminal Minds).

The standout on ABC, of course, was Modern Family, which was the top-rated scripted show of the evening with a 9.0/14 at 9 p.m. But relocated lead-out Suburgatory (like former time period occupants Happy Endings, Cougar Town and Mr. Sunshine) did not come close with a third-place 5.5/ 9 at 9:30 p.m. (and retention of 61 percent). Week three of aforementioned drama Nashville dipped to a 4.8/ 8 (#3) at 10 p.m., which was 25 percent behind-year ago occupant Revenge (6.4/11 on 10/26/11) and four percent below one week earlier. Three-week overnight track for Nashville: 6.8/12 – 5.0/ 9 – 4.8/ 8.

Earlier in the evening on ABC was always reliable The Middle (#3: 6.1/10 at 8 p.m.), which was 13 percent below the year-ago evening (7.0/12 on 10/26/11) and week five The Neighbors (#3: 4.8/ 8 at 8:30 p.m.), which trailed year-ago occupant Suburgatory (7.0/12 on 10/26/11) by 31 percent. One week earlier, The Neighbors scored a 5.0/ 8 on Oct. 17.

Over at NBC, Animal Practice earned its cancellation stripes with a fourth-place 2.8/ 8 at 8 p.m. Next was Guys With Kids, which will not necessarily benefit once sophomore Whitney replaces Animal Practice on November 14, at a fourth-place 3.1/ 5 at 8:30 p.m. At 9 p.m., the 300th episode of Law & Order: SVU rose to a 5.1/ 8 (#4) from 9-10 p.m., followed by week three of Chicago Fire at a fourth-place 4.3/ 8 at 10 p.m. On paper, the overnights for Chicago Fire do not impress. But this was a minor boost of two percent from one week earlier, and there was no loss of rating in the second half-hour. Retention for Chicago Fire out of the 9:30 p.m. portion of lead-in Law & Order: SVU (5.3/ 8), meanwhile, was decent at 81 percent. Three-week overnight track for Chicago Fire: 4.7/ 8 – 4.2/ 7 – 4.3/ 8).

In other week three news, drama Arrow on The CW earned its full season renewal stripes with a 2.7/ 4 (#5) from 8-9 p.m. Comparably, this was only four percent below week two, with growth from a repeat of short-lived Ringer on the year-ago evening (1.1/ 2 on 10/26/11) of 145 percent. Three week overnight track for Arrow: 3.0/ 5 – 2.8/ 5 – 2.7/ 5.

With Arrow a true bright spot, The CW needs to eventually address veteran Supernatural, which scored a 1.5/ 2 from 9-10 p.m. While that is stronger than its year-ago performance anchoring Friday, Supernatural dipped by 21 percent from year-ago occupant America’s Next Top Model (1.9/ 3 on 10/26/11). And retention out of Arrow was only 56 percent.

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.
