-Ratings Breakdown:
CBS remained the network to beat on Thursday with a first-place overnight finish in each of the six half-hours. Red-hot The Big Bang Theory opened with an 11.0 rating/17 share (+11 percent from one year earlier), followed by relocated Two and a Half Men (9.6/15: +39 percent from year-ago occupant Rules of Engagement), sophomore Person of Interest (9.6/15) and recent entry Elementary (7.3/13), which has snagged the coveted Super Bowl XLVII lead-out spot on Sunday, February 3, 2013. The overall 30 percent year-to-year growth for CBS is a result of encore telecasts of Person of Interest and The Mentalist airing on the year-ago evening. And the retention for Elementary out of the 9:30 p.m. portion of Person of Interest last night (9.5/15) was an acceptable (albeit non-spectacular) 77 percent.

Over at NBC, an 8-9 p.m. edition of The Voice performed admirably opposite the CBS sitcoms with a second-place 6.6/10. Comparably, that was 164 percent above year-ago occupants Community and Parks and Recreation (each with a 2.5/ 4 on 11/10/11). And it lifted lead-out The Office to a season-high 3.8/ 6 (#3t) in the 9 p.m. half-hour. Comparably, The Office built by 19 percent from its most recent original telecast (3.2/ 5 on October 25).

Parks and Recreation on NBC, unfortunately, slid to a 2.6/ 4 at 9:30 p.m. (#4), while older-skewing lead-out Rock Center With Brian Williams finished a distant third in the 10 p.m. hour with a 3.1/ 5. Parks and Recreation, like 30 Rock and The Office, should also be ending this spring.

Elsewhere, freshman ABC drama Last Resort continues to slowly lose steam with a series-low 4.2/ 7 in the overnights from 8-9 p.m. But, comparably, this was still 24 percent above failed year-ago occupant Charlie’s Angels (3.4/ 5 on 11/10/11). Six-week overnight track for Last Resort: 6.5/11 – 5.5/ 9 – 4.7/ 8 – 4.8/ 8 – 4.4/ 7 – 4.2/ 7). Next on the alphabet net was veteran Grey’s Anatomy at a second-place 6.8/11 at 9 p.m. (-18 percent from the 8.2/13 on 11/10/11), followed by sophomore Scandal, also from Shonda Rhimes, at a second place 4.6/ 8 at 10 p.m. Comparably, Scandal dropped by 19 percent from Private Practice on the year-ago evening (5.7/10 on 11/10/11).

On Fox, The X Factor at 8 p.m. finished third in the 8 p.m. hour with a 4.7/ 8 -- 29 percent below competing The Voice on NBC. And that led into a third-place 3.7/ 6 for diluted Glee at 9 p.m., which should be officially graduating this spring.

The CW capped off the evening with healthy The Vampire Diaries (#5: 2.3/ 4 at 8 p.m.), which was on par from one year earlier, followed by week five of Beauty and the Beast at a not so beautiful 1.3/ 2 at 9 p.m. Comparably, Beauty and the Beast was 19 percent below shortlived year-ago occupant The Secret Circle (1.6/ 3 on 11/10/11), with retention out of the 8:30 p.m. portion of The Vampire Diaries (2.2/ 3) of 59 percent. Five-week overnight track for Beauty and the Beast: 2.4/ 4 – 1.5/ 2 – 1.5/ 2 – 1.3/ 2 – 1.3/ 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.
