-Ratings Breakdown:
Fox led the Thursday overnights opposite a night of all repeats on CBS, with a one-hour edition of still potent American Idol tops for the night with a 9.6 rating/15 share from 8-9 p.m. But compared to the year-ago evening (11.1/17 on 1/26/12), this was a loss of 13 percent. And this will, no doubt, remain the ongoing pattern this season. Mariah Carey/Nicki Minaj update: all quiet last night!

Leading out of American Idol was Glee, which sunk to third with a 4.5/ 7 in the overnights from 9-10 p.m. Comparably, retention for Glee out of the 8:30 p.m. portion of Idol (10.0/16) was only 45 percent. And former failed time period occupant The Finder was stronger with a 5.5/ 9 one year earlier. Like any high school based series (think The White Shadow, for example), bringing in new students to inject interest is an uphill battle that is never won.

Over at CBS, the encore of The Big Bang Theory still resonated with a second-place 7.6/12 at 8 p.m. Next was a repeat of Two and a Half Men (#2: 5.6/ 9), which the network hopes to keep on the line-up next season, followed encores of scripted dramas Person of Interest (#2: 6.5/10) and Elementary (#1: 5.4/ 9) from 9-11 p.m. As a reminder, a Sunday edition of Elementary will air out of Super Bowl XLVII on February 3.

In series-finale news, ABC drama Last Resort earned its cancellation stripes with a third-place 3.6/ 6 in the overnights at 8 p.m. Next was old faithful Grey’s Anatomy, which perked up to first at 9 p.m. with a 6.9/11 (opposite the aforementioned encore of Person of Interest on CBS). Comparably, Grey’s built from the 8:30 p.m. portion of Last Resort (3.5/ 5) by a hefty 97 percent.

A repeat of Scandal, which is a shoo-in for a third season renewal, capped off the night for the alphabet net with a second-place 4.4/ 8 at 10 p.m.

Elsewhere, NBC remained out of the competitive overnight loop with its combination of 30 Rock (#4: 2.7/ 4), which concludes with a one-hour episode next week, Parks and Recreation (#4: 2.8/ 4), The Office (#4: 3.1/ 5), recent entry 1600 Penn (#4: 2.3/ 4) and the final Thursday 10 p.m. installment of Rock Center with Brian Williams (#3: 2.8/ 5). Comparably, 1600 Penn was only equal to a repeat of former time period occupant Up All Night on the year-ago evening.

Next Thursday, NBC will air back-to-back episodes of The Office in the 9 p.m. hour into debuting scripted drama Do No Harm, the tale of a brilliant neurosurgeon (Steven Pasquale) who wrestles with the dangerous alter ego that threatens to wreak havoc on his personal and professional life. Rock Center With Brian Williams, meanwhile, will move into the Friday 10 p.m. hour (out of two hours of Dateline) effective on February 8.

The CW closed the night with The Vampire Diaries at a 2.0/ 3 in the overnights at 8 p.m. (#5), followed by freshman Beauty and the Beast at a 1.4/ 2 at 9 p.m. Given the expected loss in the key young demographics at 9 p.m., The CW could do better out of The Vampire Diaries that Beauty and the Beast.

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.
