-Ratings Breakdown:
CBS led the Wednesday overnights care of its still solid combination of Survivor: Philippines (#1: 6.9 rating/11 share), Criminal Minds (#1 overall: 7.9/13) and granddaddy CSI (#1: 7.7/13), which remains a dominant force in season 13. Comparably, Survivor was right on par with the year-ago edition set in the South Pacific.

It was a three-way race for No. 2 overall the overnights, with two-hours of The X Factor on Fox (5.5/ 9) inching past ABC and NBC by one-tenth of a rating point. But one year earlier, The X Factor was notably stronger at a 7.7/12 in the 8-9:30 p.m. block on 11/30/11. Comparably, last night was down by 29 percent. The moral of the story: The Voice on NBC is a much stronger singing competition.

ABC’s crown jewel on Wednesday, of course, is Modern Family, which won the 9 p.m. half-hour with an 8.3/13. And that was 66 percent ahead of the 8:30 p.m. portion of encore holiday special A Charlie Brown Christmas (5.0/ 8). But Suburgatory at 9:30 p.m. dipped by 43 percent to a 4.7/ 7, which led into a third-place 4.5/ 8 for critical favorite Nashville at 10 p.m.

Overall, the repeat of A Charlie Brown Christmas finished third (tied with the first hour of The X Factor on Fox) with a respectable 5.3/ 9 from 8-9 p.m.

A night of specials was positive for NBC care of annual Christmas in Rockefeller Center (#2: 6.2/10 at 8 p.m.) and SNL Christmas, which averaged a 5.1/ 8 from 9-11 p.m. Comparably, Christmas in Rockefeller Center lifted NBC to its second best overnight average in the Wednesday 8 p.m. hour this season (behind a November 7 edition of The Voice). And the SNL special is also NBC’s second-highest rating in the Wednesday 9-11 p.m. block this season (again behind The Voice).

The CW capped off the evening with bona fide hit Arrow (#5: 2.6/ 4), which built by 73 percent from year-ago special A Muppets Christmas: Letters to Santa (1.5/ 2 on 11/30/11) and veteran Supernatural (#5: 1.5/ 2). While the overnight retention for Supernatural out of Arrow was only 58 percent, the young demo losses are not expected to be this severe.

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.
