-Ratings Breakdown:
It was a clean Tuesday sweep for CBS with its scripted drama combination of veteran NCIS (13.3 rating/21 share at 8 p.m. – top rated for the evening), spin-off NCIS: Los Angeles (10.5/17 at 9 p.m.), which has benefited opposite sitcoms on ABC, NBC and Fox, and freshman entry Vegas (6.9/12 at 10 p.m.). But retention for Vegas out of the 9:30 p.m. portion of NCIS: Los Angeles (10.2/16) of an unimpressive 68 percent coupled with the older audience skew means a second season is a long shot.

CBS, in fact, beat the four competing networks combined in the overnights.

In the distant No. 2 spot was NBC care of two episodes of recent returnee Betty White’s Off Their Rockers (8 p.m.: #2t: #2t, 3.6/ 6; 8:30 p.m.: #2t, 3.5/ 5), freshman comedies Go On (#3: 2.7/ 4) and The New Normal #2t, 2.4/ 4) and a 10 p.m. edition of Dateline (#2: 3.7/ 7), which stepped in for Parenthood. The next time someone tells you that the lead-in no longer matters, remind he or she of how far Go On with Matthew Perry has fallen minus the support of The Voice.

Next Tuesday, the second season of musical NBC drama Smash opens with a two-hour edition from 9-11 p.m.

In week two news, ABC cooking competition The Taste lost noticeable steam, with a 3.6/ 6 in the overnights from 8-9 p.m. Comparably, that was down by 20 percent from the 4.7/ 7 for the two-hour launch one week earlier (which translated into 5.82 million viewers and a 2.8 rating/5 share among adults 18-49, according to the Live Plus Same Day data).

Next on ABC were two episodes of sitcom Happy Endings, which was not so “happy” at a 2.2/ 3 at 9 p.m. and a series-low 1.9/ 3 at 9:30 p.m. The 9:30 p.m. installment stepped in for canceled Don’t Trust the B___ in Apt. 23. And an encore telecast of Jimmy Kimmel Live at 10 p.m. (in place of a previously scheduled repeat of drama Body of Proof), with guest Matt Damon, finished third with a 2.5/ 4 in the overnights at 10 p.m.

Fox, meanwhile, finished a distant third overall with two episodes (original and repeat) of Raising Hope (8 p.m.: #4, 2.7/ 4; 8:30 p.m.: #4, 2.5/ 5), deteriorating New Girl (#2: 3.5/ 5) and struggling The Mindy Project (#2t, 2.4/ 4). And The CW could not compete with Hart of Dixie (#5: 1.3/ 2) and canceled Emily Owens, M.D. (#5: 1.3/ 2). As I have said countless, too many comedies on Tuesday have bled into each other.

In late night, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on NBC and The Late Show with David Letterman on CBS tied for first in the 11:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. daypart, each with a 2.7/ 8 in the overnights. But dominant Leno dipped by 36 percent in the second half hour (3.3/ 8 to 2.1/ 6), while Letterman’s erosion (in the lower HUT level 12 a.m. half-hour) was less extensive at 26 percent (3.1/ 8 to 2.3/ 7). Keep in mind, no doubt, that a good portion of Leno’s older audience is going to bed midway through the show. Competing Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC, which is a younger skewing option than former time period occupant Nightline, finished third with a competitive 2.1/ 6.

Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on NBC topped the 12:30-1:30 a.m. daypart, with a 1.4/ 4 in the overnights, which was one-tenth of a rating point (or eight percent) above The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on CBS (1.3/ 5). Relocated Nightline on ABC trailed with a 1.3/ 4 in the 12 p.m. half-hour. The positive news for ABC in late night, of course, is the younger skew tuning into the network from 11:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m., which is beneficial to advertisers.

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.
