-Ratings Breakdown:
ABC opened this third week of the new TV season on a typically winning note in the overnights, but The Voice on NBC has shifted the entire evening and will lead the Peacock net to victory among adults 18-49. Ignited by The Voice, NBC finished a whopping 170 percent above the year-ago evening, while the pattern elsewhere was double-digit percent losses.

Dancing With the Stars on ABC won the 8-10 p.m. block with a 9.9 rating/15 share in the overnights. But year-to-year (versus a 12.2/18 on 10/10/11) it was down by 19 percent. Competing The Voice on NBC, meanwhile, scored an ample 8.3/12, which built from year-ago occupant The Sing Off (2.9/ 4 on 10/10/11) by 186 percent. Needless to say, one series can change the entire fortunes of a network.

Castle on ABC at 10 p.m. finished first with a 7.1/12 – 22 percent above competing Hawaii Five-O on CBS (5.8/10) and 37 percent above Revolution on NBC, which slipped to a series-low 5.2/ 9. But Revolution is poised for time period victory among adults 18-49, and this was still 126 percent above a repeat of failed crime solver Prime Suspect on the year-ago evening (2.3/ 4 on 10/10/11). Four-week overnight track for Revolution: 7.9/13 – 6.3/11 – 5.4/ 9 – 5.2/ 9.

Over at deteriorating CBS, the cancellation clock continues to rapidly tick on new sitcom Partners, which slipped to a series-low 3.7/ 6 in the overnights at 8:30 p.m. Comparably, that was seven percent below one week earlier (4.0/ 6 on Oct. 1), 51 percent below year-ago occupant 2 Broke Girls (7.6/11 on 10/10/11), and 31 percent below lead-in How I Met Your Mother (#3, 5.4/ 8 at 8 p.m.). Three-week overnight track for Partners: 4.5/ 7 – 4.0/ 6 – 3.7/ 6. How I Met Your Mother, meanwhile, was down by 17 percent year-to-year (versus a 6.5/10 on 10/10/11).

The positive news for relocated 2 Broke Girls on CBS was growth of 68 percent out of Partners, with a 6.2/ 9 at 9 p.m. But comparably, this was still 18 percent below its aforementioned year-ago overnight performance at 8:30 p.m., and 40 percent below Two and a Half Men on the year-ago evening (10.4/15 on 10/10/11), which was still in the Ashton Kutcher curiosity phase.

Mike & Molly on the Eye net followed with a third-place 5.6/ 8 at 9:30 p.m. (down 28 percent from the 7.8/11 on 10/10/11), and aforementioned Hawaii Five-O capped off the evening with a 5.8/10 at 10 p.m. (down 12 percent from the 6.6/11 on 10/10/11).

On Fox, the axe is expected to officially swing on The Mob Doctor, with episode four at a series low 2.5/ 4 (#4) in the overnights at 9 p.m. Comparably, that was a drop of 49 percent from failed Terra Nova on the year-ago evening (4.9/ 7 on 10/10/11), with retention out of the 8:30 p.m. portion of Bones (4.6/ 7) of only 54 percent. Four-week overnight track for The Mob Doctor: 3.7/ 6 – 2.7/ 4 – 2.6/ 4 – 2.5/ 4).

Bones on Fox, overall, scored a 4.7/ 7 in the 8 p.m. hour, which placed it fourth.

In embarrassing news for The CW (which is not helped by the current Cablevision-Tribune retransmission feud), the season-premiere episodes of 90210 (#5: 0.9/ 1 at 8 p.m.) and Gossip Girl (#5: 0.8/ 1 at 9 p.m.) are not expected to even crack the one million viewer mark. Comparably, 90210 was down by 25 percent from year-ago occupant Gossip Girl (1.2/ 2 on 10/10/11) and Gossip Girl down by 43 percent from Hart of Dixie (1.4/ 2 on 10/10/11). Thankfully, Gossip Girl is ending in midseason and 90210 should have concluded three years ago.

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.
