-Ratings Breakdown:
It was an easy overnight Wednesday victory for Fox care of two-hours of American Idol, which averaged a 10.3 rating/16 share from 8-10 p.m. (peaking in the 8:30 p.m. half hour, with a 10.7/17). Comparably, however, this was 17 percent below the one-hour edition one year earlier (12.4/19 from 8-9 p.m. on 1/25/12). Regardless, there will be no shortage of sparks flying between new judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, which makes the current season a better option creatively than the bland Jennifer Lopez/Steven Tyler era. Consider this former viewer back!

Over at CBS, a repeat of Criminal Minds in place of regularly scheduled Survivor (which returns with a two-hour edition on February 13) opened with a third-place 4.3/ 7 in the overnights at 8 p.m. Next was the regularly scheduled edition of underrated Criminal Minds (#2: 8.0/12), followed by the forensics crime solver that keeps on ticking, CSI, at a dominant 7.4/13 at 10 p.m.

Modern Family on ABC was the standout, of course, with a 7.9/12 in the overnights at 9 p.m. (#2, tied with Criminal Minds on CBS). Comparably, that built from lead-in The Neighbors (#3, 4.3/ 7 at 8:30 p.m.) by 84 percent. But lead-out Suburgatory, like any sitcom airing out of Modern Family, dropped by a hefty 43 percent with a third-place 4.5/ 7 at 9:30 p.m. That led into critically acclaimed drama Nashville at a second-place 4.2/ 7 at 10 p.m.

Earlier in the evening on ABC was always reliable The Middle at a solid second-place 6.0/10 at 8 p.m.

Elsewhere, NBC was in all repeats with its combination of sophomore Whitney (#5: 2.2/ 4), which should not have been granted a second season, recent entry Guys With Kids (#5: 1.8/ 3), veteran Law & Order: SVU (#4: 2.1/ 3) and freshman Chicago Fire (#3: 2.1/ 3), which should have no troubled snagging a second season renewal given the compatibility out of SVU. As for Guys With Kids, the chance of continuing past this spring is slim.

On The CW, bona feed keeper Arrow doubled the overnight performance of year-ago occupant One Tree Hill, with a fourth-place 2.4/ 4 in the overnights at 8 p.m. And Arrow, no doubt, is clearly resonating among The CW’s target audience. While lead-out Supernatural (#5: 1.4/ 4 at 9 p.m.) remains on the year to year plus side (when it aired in the Friday 9 p.m. hour), retention of only 58 percent out of Arrow means The CW could be putting this time period to better use.

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.
