-Ratings Breakdown:
It was another overnight Tuesday victory for CBS, which bested second-place NBC by 18 percent. But The Voice season-ender will clearly lift the Peacock net to significant victory among adults 18-49 (as well as other key demos). In the distant No. 3 spot was ABC, followed by a night of repeats on Fox and The CW.

The two-hour season-finale of The Voice on NBC rose to a record 9.1 rating/15 share in the overnights from 9-11 p.m., peaking at a 9.5/16 at 10:30 p.m. Comparably, that built by 23 percent from the spring cycle closer (7.4/12 on Tuesday 5/8/12) and 25 percent from the first cycle finale (7.3/13 on 6/29/11). Earlier in the evening on NBC was a repeat of The Voice at a second-place 5.5/ 9 from 8-9 p.m.

To the naysayers (including myself) who questioned the decision to air a fall edition of The Voice, it lifted NBC to first overall among adults 18-49 and proves that one single series can ignite an entire network. Bravo NBC!

The spring 2013 edition of The Voice begins in March with returning Blake Shelton and Adam Levine and new judges Shakira and Usher.

Despite facing a night of The Voice, CBS was on the map care of NCIS (#1 for the evening: 12.0/20), spin-off NCIS: Los Angeles (#1: 9.5/15) and freshman drama Vegas (#2: 6.5/11). Retention for older-skewing Vegas out of the 9:30 p.m. portion of NCIS: Los Angeles (9.4/15) last night was 69 percent.

On distant ABC, a repeat of holiday classic A Charlie Brown Christmas got some mileage with a third-place 3.8/ 7 in the overnights from 8-9 p.m. But poorly scheduled sitcoms Happy Endings (#3: 2.4/ 4) and Don’t Trust the B____ in Apartment 23 (#3: 2.1/ 3) dipped considerably from 9-10 p.m. and soon-to-conclude Private Practice, which officially ends on January 22, closed the night with a 3.3/ 6 at 10 p.m. (#3).

Elsewhere, Fox populated the evening with repeats of sitcoms Raising Hope (#4: 1.8/ 3), Ben and Kate (#4: 1.4/ 2), New Girl (#4: 1.4/ 2) and The Mindy Project (#4: 1.2/ 2). And The CW aired an encore of 2002 theatrical It’s a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie (#5: 1.1/ 2 from 8-10 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.
