-Ratings Breakdown:
The two-hour fall season-finale of Dancing With the Stars led ABC to Tuesday overnight victory, with a three percent advantage over second-place CBS. But NBC is still the network to beat thanks to The Voice, while Fox and The CW were sorely lacking.

Two-hours of Dancing With the Stars scored an 11.5 rating/18 share from 9-11 p.m., peaking in the 10:30 p.m. half-hour with a 12.0/20. And, comparably, that was an increase of a hefty 135 percent from an encore of 8:30 p.m. holiday special Shrek the Halls (#3: 4.9/ 7). But one year earlier, the fall season finale of Dancing With the Stars concluded with a heftier 13.2/21 on Tuesday 11/22/11.

Earlier in the evening on ABC was a repeat of annual holiday special How the Grinch Stole Christmas at a respectable 5.1/ 8 (#3) at 8 p.m.

On CBS, the one-two punch of NCIS (#1: 12.1/19) and spin-off NCIS: Los Angeles (#2: 9.0/14) remains a force to reckon with from 8-10 p.m. But freshman drama Vegas at 10 p.m. continues to lose steam, with a series-low 6.1/10 in the overnights at 10 p.m. Comparably, retention for Vegas out of the 9:30 p.m. portion of NCIS: Los Angeles (8.9/14) was disappointing at 69 percent. And the older skew for the Dennis Quaid/Michael Chiklis 1960s set crime solver is a concern.

Over at NBC, rock-solid The Voice remained just that at a second-place 7.6/12 in the 8 p.m. hour. Comparably, that built from the first half of year-ago occupant The Biggest Loser (4.7/ 7 on 11/29/11) by 62 percent. And it will, no doubt, lead the evening among adults 18-49. But freshman sitcom Go On, with Matthew Perry, dipped to a distant third at 9 p.m., with a 4.0/ 6 (48 percent below the 8:30 p.m. portion of The Voice – 7.8/12). And The New Normal at 9:30 p.m. (which like Go On was renewed for the full season), sunk to a series-low 2.8/ 4 at 9:30 p.m. Comparably, that was 30 percent below Go On.

At 10 p.m., Parenthood on NBC perked up a bit to a 3.4/ 6 (#3) in the overnights. But, compared to one year earlier (4.0/ 7 on 11/29/11), that was down by 15 percent.

Elsewhere, two-hours of live action comedies on Fox -- Raising Hope (#4: 2.8/ 4), Ben & Kate (#4: 2.1/ 3), New Girl (#4: 3.2/ 5) and The Mindy Project (#4: 2.1/ 3) -- were down, on average, by an extensive 51 percent from the year-ago combination of Glee, New Girl and Raising Hope. Sophomore New Girl, in particular, dipped by 40 percent (versus a 5.3/ 8 on 11/29/11). And The CW capped off the evening with sophomore Hart of Dixie (#5: 1.2/ 2), which was equal to year-ago occupant 90210, and recent entry Emily Owens, M.D. (#5: series low 0.9/ 1), which dropped by 36 percent from failed year-ago occupant Ringer (1.4/ 2 on 11/29/11). Tick, tock…the cancellation clock is ticking on Emily Owens, M.D.

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.
