-Ratings Breakdown:
It was another clean overnight Tuesday sweep for CBS courtesy of NCIS (13.4 rating/21 share), NCIS: Los Angeles (10.0/16) and Vegas (6.6/11), which is not expected to win the 10 p.m. hour among adults 18-49 opposite the second hour of The Bachelor on ABC. Casting note: Edward Hodge (Red Dawn) is the first to be signed for the proposed NCIS: Los Angeles spin-off, which will follow a mobile team of agents who work together as they travel the country solving crimes. It will air in a backdoor pilot episode on NCIS: Los Angeles later this season.

In sophomore season-premiere news, two-hours of Smash on NBC, featuring Jennifer Hudson, opened with an uneventful 3.7/ 6 in the overnights from 9-11 p.m. Comparably, this was NBC's top rating in the time period since the fall season-finale of The Voice on December 18. But it was also, however, 53 percent below the one-hour series-opener (7.8/13 on Monday 2/06/12 at 10 p.m. out of The Voice). And Smash dropped in household rating in each of the four half-hours (4.1/ 6 – 3.7/ 6 – 3.6/ 6 – 3.4/ 6). While you have to commend NBC for an ambitious scripted entry like Smash, this is not the type of series, unfortunately, that will ever attract a mass audience.

Earlier in the evening on NBC Betty White’s 2nd Annual 90th Birthday Special at a second-place 4.3/ 7 in the overnights from 8-9 p.m.

Over at ABC, week three of cooking competition The Taste perked up to a 3.9/ 6 in the 8 p.m. hour, which was eight percent above one week earlier (three week overnight track: 4.7/ 7 – 3.6/ 6 – 3.9/ 6). Keep in mind that the 3.6/ 6 in the overnights last week translated into 4.80 million viewers and a 1.6/ 4 among adults 18-49, based on the Live Plus Same Day results. In other words: not great/not terrible.

Next on the alphabet net was a Tuesday edition of The Bachelor at a competitive (and second place) 5.6/ 9 from 9-11 p.m., which was a notable improvement from the regularly scheduled line-up.

Elsewhere, two episodes of the sitcom more people should be watching, Raising Hope, only mustered a 2.5/ 4 in the overnights from 8-9 p.m. (8 p.m.: #4, 2.6/ 4; 8:30 p.m.: #4, 2.4/ 4). If you were a fan of underrated 2000-06 CBS sitcom Yes, Dear (and I certainly was), you might have noticed the cameo appearances by Mike O’Malley and Liza Snyder as Jimmy and Christine Hughes. It looks like Jimmy and Christine finally got their own place!

Next on Fox was demo friendly New Girl at a fourth-place 3.4/ 5 in the overnights at 9 p.m., which was 42 percent above the 8:30 p.m. edition of Raising Hope. At 9:30 p.m., freshman The Mindy Project sunk to a 2.3/ 4, which dipped by 32 percent from New Girl.

In series-finale news, drama Emily Owens, M.D. earned its cancellation with a 1.1/ 2 in the overnights at 9 p.m. Comparably, that was equal to lead-in Hart of Dixie, which is not capable of anchoring the evening.

In late night: David Letterman on CBS (2.6/ 7 from 11:30 p.m.-12:30 a.m.) led in the overnights once again, narrowly beating competing The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on NBC (2.5/ 6). Comparably, both declined from the year-ago evening, with Letterman down 13 percent and Leno down 11 percent. Relocated Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC finished third with a 2.2/ 6, which continues to slip from year-ago occupant Nightline (down 19 percent in the 11:30 p.m. half-hour: 2.6/ 6 vs. 3.2/ 8). But the improved young demo delivery for Kimmel makes moving up one half-hour a smart move financially.

Older skewing Nightline followed on ABC with a third-place 1.3/ 4 at 12:30 a.m. Craig Ferguson on CBS and Jimmy Fallon on NBC tied with a 1.3/ 4 in the overnights from 12:30-1:30 a.m. (each down marginally from the year-ago evening), with Last Call With Carson Daly on NBC at a 0.7/ 3 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.
