Ratings Breakdown:
American Idol led Fox to overnight Wednesday victory, with an 8.7 rating/14 share from 8-10 p.m. (peaking at a 9.6/15 at 9:30 p.m.). And that will be more than enough to win the evening among 18-49 (and other young adult demos). But compared to the year-ago evening (11.9/19 on 2/15/12), this was down by a noticeable 27 percent. Further proof of the Idol slippage was a 14.5/22 in the overnights on the same evening in 2011. The morale of the story: Not even the arrivals of Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban can stop the bleeding.

Speaking of slippage, the latest edition of Survivor (Caramoan – Fans vs. Favorites) opened on CBS with a diluted 5.5/ 9 in the overnights from 8-9:30 p.m., which comparably is the weakest season-premiere for an edition of Survivor on record. Year-to-year, Survivor dropped by 13 percent from the opening edition of the One World edition on 2/15/12. The morale of this story: Like American Idol, there is only one place to go when you are past the full decade mark…down. As for Survivor, it is always an addiction and this season will be no exception. But some of the choices to return seem a bit strange, don’t they?

Survivor: Caramoan, which was originally a two-hour edition, led into an encore of The Big Bang Theory at a fourth-place 3.5/ 6 at 9:30 p.m. It is not that often that you hear “fourth-place” and The Big Bang Theory in the same sentence, but this was a last minute programming entry. At 10 p.m., veteran CSI perked up to a dominant 5.7/10 from 10-11 p.m., which was 63 percent above the repeat of The Big Bang Theory. One year earlier on CSI featured the arrival of Elisabeth Shue.

The standout on ABC, of course, was Modern Family, which scored a second-place 7.2/11 in the overnights at 9 p.m. (-10 percent from the year-ago evening), with growth out of freshman lead-in The Neighbors (#3: 4.3/ 7 at 8:30 p.m.) of 67 percent. Next on ABC was modest Suburgatory (#3: 4.4/ 7 at 9:30 p.m.), which held only 61 percent of the Modern Family lead-in, followed by critically acclaimed drama Nashville at a third-place 4.3/ 7. One year earlier, Revenge at 10 p.m. was considerably stronger at a 5.8/10.

Earlier in the evening on ABC was underrated The Middle (there is no better word to describe it) at a third-place 5.5/ 9, which was just one-tenth of a rating behind the 8 p.m. half-hour portion of competing Survivor: Caramoan. The moral of ABC’s Wednesday story: The net could, and should, be doing better out of The Middle and Modern Family.

Over at NBC, 8-9 p.m. sitcoms Whitney (#4: 2.6/ 4) and Guys With Kids (#4: 2.3/ 4) continue to under-perform, with erosion of an average nine percent from the year-ago combination of Whitney and short-lived Are You There, Chelsea? But veteran Law & Order: SVU rose to third overall with a 4.9/ 8 from 9-10 p.m., which was 17 percent above the 4.2/ 8 in the overnights one year earlier (when it aired at 10 p.m.). And compatible Chicago Fire finished second at 10 p.m. with a 4.7/ 8 (and retention out of the 9:30 p.m. portion of Law & Order: SVU — 5.1/ 8 — of 92 percent). See you next season, Chicago Fire.

On The CW, the just renewed combination of Arrow (#4t: 2.5/ 4) and Supernatural (#5: 1.5/ 2) built by an average of 150 percent from the year-ago combination of One Tree Hill (1.2/ 2 on 2/15/12) and Remodeled (0.4/ 1). But overnight slippage of 40 percent for Supernatural out of Arrow (which is likely to be smaller demographically) is not necessarily a “winning” performance.

Carson Daly capped off the evening for NBC with a typical 0.9/ 4 at 1:30 a.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.
