-Ratings Breakdown:
CBS got over the Wednesday “hump” in typical winning overnight fashion with its combination of Survivor: Philippines (#1: 6.9 rating/11 share), Criminal Minds (#1: 7.6/12) and veteran CSI (#1t: 6.2/11), which was below-average opposite the annual Barbara Walters Presents the 10 Most Fascinating People of 2012 on ABC. Survivor: Philippines, which concludes for the season with a two-hour installment (followed by the live reunion show) on Sunday, and Criminal Minds were both on par with recent levels. Speaking as the ultimate Survivor fan, I commend Lisa Whelchel for the game she has played and I personally hope she wins.

Modern Family on ABC was the standout, of course, with a 7.6/12 in the overnights at 9 p.m. Comparably, that topped the night with growth out of lead-in The Neighbors (#3: 3.9/ 6 at 8:30 p.m.) of a hefty 95 percent. ABC at this point may want to reconsider the full season episode order it gave to kooky The Neighbors. Next on the alphabet net was aforementioned Barbara Walters Presents the 10 Most Fascinating People of 2012, which averaged a respectable 6.0/10 from 9:30-11 p.m. Comparably, however, that was down by 14 percent from the year-ago evening (7.0/11 on 12/14/11), which translated into 8.39 million viewers and a 2.3/ 6 among adults 18-49 (based on the Live Plus Same day results).

At 8 p.m. on ABC was always reliable The Middle at a second-place 5.2/ 9 at 8 p.m.

Proof the lead-in does still matter was the third telecast of NBC game show Take It All, which tumbled to a mere 2.4/ 4 in the overnights from 9-10 p.m. without the lead-in support of The Voice. Leading out of a 2.1/ 3 (#4) for a repeat of Guys With Kids at 8:30 p.m. last night, Take It All dipped by 49 percent from Tuesday (4.7/ 8) and 44 percent from its debut on Monday (4.3/ 7).

With weaker lead-in support, freshman NBC drama Chicago Fire sunk to a series-low 3.6/ 6 at 10 p.m. But, comparably, that was still 38 percent above the 9:30 p.m. portion of Take It All (2.6/ 4).

Earlier in the evening on NBC was sophomore sitcom Whitney at an uneventful fourth-place 2.8/ 5 at 8 p.m.

Elsewhere, two-hours of The X Factor on Fox scored a third-place 5.4/ 9 in the overnights from 8-10 p.m., which dropped by a noticeable 28 percent from the 7.5/12 for a 90-minute edition on the year-ago evening (7.5/12 on 12/14/11). The X Factor, which has already been renewed for season three, concludes for the season next Thursday, December 20.

On The CW, bona fide freshman drama hit Arrow remained just that with a 2.5/ 4 (#4) from 8-9 p.m., which was 150 percent above an encore of America’s Next Top Model on the year-ago evening (1.0/ 2 on 12/14/11). Arrow led into an encore telecast of special Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, which aired on CBS last Tuesday, and dropped to a 1.2/ 2 at 9 p.m. (#5). And there you have it…the Tuesday overnights.

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.
