-Ratings Breakdown:
CBS led this third Monday in December in the overnights, beating second-place NBC by seven percent. But the home of The Voice is a lock for leadership among coveted among adults 18-49. In the distant No. 3 spot was Dancing With the Stars-less ABC, followed by a night of low-rated holiday specials on Fox and the two-hour series-finale of Gossip Girl on The CW, which exited with a mere 1.1 rating/2 share in the overnights from 8-10 p.m. Coming up on The CW in the Monday 8 p.m. hour effective on January 14 is Sex and the City prequel The Carrie Diaries (which leads into relocated 90210).

A 90-minute edition of The Voice topped the night, with an 8.6/13 in the overnights from 8-9:30 p.m. Comparably, that was The Voice’s highest overnight rating since September 17. Leading out of The Voice was a preview of new NBC sitcom 1600, which was sampled at a 4.5/ 7 (#2) at 9:30 p.m. (#2). But retention of only 54 percent out of the 9 p.m. half-hour of The Voice (8.4/13) and a planned launch in the Thursday 9:30 p.m. half-hour (out of tired The Office) on January 10 means 1600 Penn faces an uphill battle. Competing CBS sitcom Mike & Molly (#1: 6.9/10) beat 1600 Penn by a hefty 53 percent in the overnights.

At 10 p.m. on NBC was the season (or series) finale of game show Take It All at a very distant third-place 2.8/ 5, which means any future episodes are unlikely. A better move would be to bring Howie Mandel back in the return of Deal or No Deal.

On CBS, two episodes of veteran sitcom How I Met Your Mother was above average, with a 5.8/ 9 at 8 p.m. and a 6.0/ 9 at 8:30 p.m. Both half-hours finished second behind The Voice and both will resonate in the young adult demos. At 9 p.m., 2 Broke Girls rose to a 6.8/10 (#2), which was 13 percent above the 8:30 p.m. portion of How I Met Your Mother, followed by aforementioned Mike & Molly at a dominant 6.9/10 at 9:30 p.m. Hawaii Five-O capped off the night for the Eye net with a first-place 6.6/11 at 10 p.m.

ABC featured two more episodes of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (8 p.m.: #3, 3.2/ 5; 9 p.m.: #3, 3.5/ 6), which really needs to officially retire at this point, and an encore telecast of Castle (#2: 3.8/ 6 at 10 p.m.).

Fox, meanwhile, populated the evening with half-hour special Dreamworks Dragons: A Gift of the Night Fury (#4: 2.2/ 3 at 8 p.m.), a repeat of animated Ice Age: A Mammoth Christmas (#4: 2.3/ 3 at 8:30 p.m.) and a repeat of annual holiday special Happiness is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown (#4: 1.7/ 3 from 9-10 p.m.).

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.
