-Ratings Breakdown:
It was a midweek overnight victory for CBS courtesy of Survivor: Philippines (#1: 6.8 rating/11 share), underrated Criminal Minds (#1 overall from 9-10 p.m.: 7.6/11) and veteran CSI (#1: 6.9/12), which has fared well opposite new (and full season renewed) entries Nashville on ABC (#2: 4.4/ 8) and Chicago Hope on NBC (#3: 4.2/ 7). All three Eye net hours were close to year-ago levels. As for Survivor: Philippines, Lisa Whelchel, in my humble opinion, is playing the most admirable game in the history of the reality/competition. Go Blair! The Facts of Life, which airs on cable net The Hub in the Wednesday 8-10 p.m. block, is featuring a clever promo that ties into Survivor.

Second for the evening overall was The X Factor on Fox with a 6.0/ 9 in the overnights from 8-10 p.m. But that performance was 20 percent below the 7.5/12 on the year-ago evening.

In season-premiere news, sophomore sitcom Whitney on NBC finished a distant fourth with a 3.1/ 5 at 8 p.m. While that was the network’s best overnight rating in the time period since October 3, it was still down by 14 percent from bland year-ago occupant Up All Night (3.6/ 6 on 11/16/11). Next on NBC was recent entry Guys With Kids (#4: 2.9/ 5 at 8:30 p.m.), followed by long-running Law & Order: SVU (#4: 4.4/ 7) and episode six of aforementioned Chicago Fire (#3: 4.2/ 7) from 9-11 p.m.

Over at ABC, Modern Family, as usual, was top-rated for the night with an 8.1/13 in the overnights at 9 p.m. And that will easily translate into an adult 18-49 victory. But sophomore Suburgatory dipped to a 5.0/ 8 at 9:30 p.m. (#3), which was 38 percent below Modern Family. Earlier in the evening on the alphabet net was underrated The Middle at a second-place 5.9/ 9 at 8 p.m., followed by recent kooky entry The Neighbors at a 4.6/ 7 at 8:30 p.m. Comparably, retention for The Neighbors out of The Middle was 78 percent.

Aforementioned Nashville capped off the evening for ABC with a second-place 4.4/ 8 at 10 p.m., which was 24 percent below year-ago occupant Revenge (5.8/10 on 11/16/11).

Over at The CW, freshman drama Arrow remains the real deal with a 2.8/ 5 (#5) in the overnights at 8 p.m. Comparably, that bested an encore telecast of America’s Next Top Model on the year-ago evening (1.0/ 2 on 11/16/11) by 180- percent. Tired Supernatural, however, dipped to a 1.5/ 2 (#5) at 9 p.m., which was 46 percent below Arrow. Given the strength of Arrow, The CW could do better here. Food for thought for next season.

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.
