-Ratings Breakdown:
It was a Tuesday overnight victory for CBS with its atypical combination of annual animated classic Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (#2: 5.9 rating/9 share), a 9 p.m. repeat of NCIS (#1: 6.9/11) and annual special Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show (#1: 6.4/11). Compared to this same line-up one year earlier (average 7.0/11 on Tuesday 11/29/11), the network slipped by nine percent. Demo friendly Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (opposite The Voice on NBC) dropped by 14 percent, while The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was flat from the year-ago telecast (and that translated into 10.39 million viewers and a 4.6 rating/12 share among adults 18-49, based on the Live Plus Same Day results). Rudolph averaged 12.64 million viewers and a 4.0/11 on that same evening.

Aforementioned The Voice on NBC led the 8 p.m. hour (and the evening), with a rock-solid 7.8/13 in the overnights and its best Tuesday performance since October 9. Freshman sitcom Go On at 9 p.m. slipped by 44 percent to a second-place 4.5/ 7. But that, too, was its best overnight since October 9 and it bested the 9-9:30 p.m. portion of The Biggest Loser one year earlier (4.3/ 7 on 12/06/11) by five percent. Go On also outdelivered competing sitcoms New Girl on Fox (#3: 3.3/ 5: down 34 percent from the year-ago evening) and Happy Endings on ABC (#4: 2.5/ 4) by 36 percent and 72 percent, respectively.

Next on NBC was The New Normal at a second-place 3.3/ 5 at 9:30 p.m., which slipped by 27 percent from Go On, followed by drama Parenthood at an above-average 3.7/ 6 at 10 p.m. (#2). Regardless of the slippage, The New Normal outdelivered competing sitcoms Don’t Trust the B___ in Apartment 23 on ABC (#3: 2.3/ 4) and The Mindy Project on Fox (#4: 2.1/ 3) by 43 percent and 57 percent, respectively. The moral of the story: There are too many comedies competing in the Tuesday 9 p.m. hour.

Over at ABC, a special Tuesday edition of Shark Tank scored a respectable third-place 5.2/ 8 in the overnights at 8 p.m., which built from the year-ago combination of sitcoms Last Man Standing (5.8/ 9 on 12/06/11) and short-lived Man Up! (3.2/ 5) by an average of 16 percent. Shark Tank also outscored its typical Friday overnight performance, and this should easily translate into a season high.

In was downhill for ABC in the 9 p.m. hour, unfortunately, care of aforementioned comedies Happy Endings (#4: 2.5/ 4) and Don’t Trust the B____ in Apartment 23 (#3: 2.3/ 4), followed by soon-to-conclude Private Practice at a third-place 3.4/ 6 at 10 p.m.

On Fox, the combination of comedies Raising Hope (#4: 2.7/ 4) and Ben and Kate (#4: 1.9/ 3) in the 8 p.m. hour dropped by a considerable 57 percent, on average, from year-ago occupant Glee (5.4/ 8 on 12/06/11). And aforementioned New Girl (#3: 3.3/ 5) and The Mindy Project (#4: 2.1/ 3) from 9-10 p.m. slipped from the year-ago pairing of New Girl (5.0/ 8) and Raising Hope (3.4/ 5) by an average of 36 percent. Fox may want to rethink airing two-hours of live action comedies on Tuesday.

The CW capped off the evening with sophomore Hart of Dixie (#5: 1.4/ 2) and canceled Emily Owens, M.D. (#5: 1.1/ 2), which could not compete.

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.
