-Ratings Breakdown:
It was a clean Tuesday overnight sweep for CBS, as usual, with its line-up of NCIS (11.3 rating/18 share), spin-off NCIS: Los Angeles (9.4/15) and freshman drama Vegas (6.5/11). But Vegas slipped by 11 percent from year-ago occupant Unforgettable (7.3/12 on 12/13/11), and the ongoing older skew means a second season could be a long shot.

On NBC, The Voice opened with a second-place 7.8/12 in the overnights from 8-9 p.m. And that, of course, will be more than enough to hold a significant lead in the hour among coveted adults 18-49. Next was night two of new game show Take It All, hosted by Howie Mandel, which got some promising news with a second-place 4.7/ 8 from 9-10 p.m. Comparably, that was nine percent above its opening on Monday (4.3/ 7 on Dec. 10) and an increase of 21 percent, on average, from regularly scheduled sitcoms Go On (4.5/ 7 on Dec. 4) and The New Normal (3.3/ 5) one week earlier.

Stronger lead-in support resulted in a season-high 4.2/ 7 for NBC’s Parenthood at 10 p.m., which was 14 percent above one week earlier (3.7/ 6 on Dec. 4).

As a reminder, two episodes of returning Betty White’s Off Their Rockers will populate the Tuesday 8 p.m. hour effective on January 8, 2013. Smash will open its second season with a two-hour installment on Tuesday, Feb. 5 from 9-11 p.m., and will move into the Tuesday 10 p.m. hour one week later. The Voice returns to Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on March 26.

Over at ABC, the network is definitely feeling the absence of Dancing With the Stars. An encore of annual animated special Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town opened with a third-place 3.4/ 6 in the overnights from 8-9 p.m. And the lack of lead-in support resulted in series-lows for sitcoms Happy Endings (#4: 2.3/ 4) and sophomore Don’t Trust the B____ in Apartment 23 (#4: 2.1/ 3) from 9-10 p.m. Soon-to-conclude Private Practice earned its cancellation stripes, meanwhile, with a last-place 3.3/ 6 at 10 p.m.

Fox, unfortunately, had nothing positive to report from its struggling combination of Raising Hope (#4: 2.9/ 4), a repeat of Ben & Kate (#4: 1.8/ 3), New Girl (3.4/ 5) and The Mindy Project (#3: 2.3/ 4), which as reported earlier this week will undergo some cast changes in midseason (http://tinyurl.com/bmxdgeh). The main problem with The Mindy Project, in this person’s opinion, is too close of a tie-in to Mindy Kaling’s prior sitcom, The Office, which has barely any audience left. And featuring Ellie Kemper in a guest shot did not help last night.

Last, of course, was The CW care of sophomore Hart of Dixie (#5: 1.3/ 2) and a repeat of animated holiday special A Muppets Christmas: Letters to Santa (#5: 0.8/ 1).

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.
