-Ratings Breakdown:
It was a clean sweep for CBS, with a first-place overnight finish in each of the six half-hours care of NCIS (10.0 rating/16 share), spin-off NCIS: Los Angeles (9.4/15) and recent entry Vegas (6.4/11). But retention for Vegas of only 69 percent from the 9:30 p.m. portion of NCIS: Las Vegas (9.3/15) and the growing older skew makes its future past this season a question mark.

Second overall was ABC thanks to the live Dancing With the Stars Results Show, which finished No. 2 in the 8 p.m. hour with a healthy 9.4/15. But the combination of sitcoms Happy Endings (#3: 3.9/ 6) and Don’t Trust the B____ in Apartment 23 (#3: 2.7/ 4) from 9-10 p.m. did not capitalize on the lead-in support. And soon-to-conclude Private Practice earned its cancellation stripes, with a 3.3/ 6 (#2t) at 10 p.m.

The positive news on NBC, of course, was The Voice, with a third-place 6.4/10 in the overnights from 8-9 p.m. Comparably, The Voice built by 73 percent from the first half of former time period occupant The Biggest Loser on the year-ago evening (3.7/ 6 on 11/22/11). And it will win the time period among adults 18-49. Next on NBC were freshman sitcoms Go On (#2: 4.0/ 6) and The New Normal (#2: 3.2/ 5) from 9-10 p.m., which are not benefitting against sitcoms on ABC and Fox. And Parenthood closed the night with a 3.3/ 6 (#2t) at 10 p.m., which was on par with the year-ago evening.

Elsewhere, Fox’s two-hour sitcom block -- Raising Hope (#4: 2.7/ 4), Ben and Kate (#4: 1.9/ 3), New Girl (#4: 3.4/ 5) and The Mindy Project (#4: 2.2/ 4) – continues to underperform. Comparably, the quartet slipped by an average of 62 percent from two-hours of The X Factor on the year-ago evening (6.5/10 on 11/22/11). And The CW could not compete with its combination of Hart of Dixie (#5: 1.2/ 2) and Emily Owens, M.D. (#5: 1.1/ 2).

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.
