-Ratings Breakdown:
It was another Thursday overnight sweep for CBS, which populated the evening with its regularly scheduled line-up of The Big Bang Theory (11.7 rating/19 share -- #1 for the evening), Two and a Half Men (9.1/14), Person of Interest (9.3/ 15) and Elementary (7.3/13), which did not get much of a boost despite the added exposure from airing out of Super Bowl XLVII last Sunday. Competing Scandal on ABC (#2: 6.1/10), which is poised for time period victory among adults 18-49, is the hot ticket in the Thursday 10 p.m. hour.

In season-premiere news, critically acclaimed NBC sitcom Community was dead on return with a mere 2.5/ 4 at 8 p.m. Combined with lead-out Parks and Recreation, which also scored a 2.5/ 4, the two comedies dipped by an average of 22 percent from a one-hour installment of 30 Rock on the year-ago evening (3.2/ 5 on 2/09/12). Not so funny, is it?

Next on NBC was The Office (#4: 3.0/ 5 at 9 p.m.), which will officially conclude with a one-hour installment (episode No. 200) on May 16, followed by episode four of 1600 Penn at a series-low 2.0/ 3 (#4) at 9:30 p.m. In what could very well be NBC’s lowest overnight rating historically for an original scripted drama in the Thursday 10 p.m. hour, episode two of Do No Harm capped off the night with an abysmal 1.6/ 3. Comparably, that declined by 33 percent from its DOA arrival one week earlier (2.4/ 4 on Jan. 31). And Do No Harm was down by 43 percent from an encore of The Voice on the year-ago evening (2.8/ 5 on 2/09/12). Tick, tock…the cancellation clock is rapidly ticking.

Over at Fox, the once unstoppable American Idol finished second behind the CBS comedies, with an 8.4/14 in the overnights from 8-9 p.m. One year earlier it scored a 12.0/19. And lead-out Glee, which needs to officially graduate at this point, slipped to distant third-place 3.8/ 7 from 9-10 p.m. Compared to failed year-ago occupant The Finder (4.3/ 7 on 2/09/12), this was a loss of 12 percent. Like any high school based series, the shelf life for Glee is limited.

Elsewhere, a repeat of Shark Tank opened the evening for ABC with a third-place 3.6/ 6 from 8-9 p.m., which was 44 percent above NBC’s aforementioned Community and Parks and Recreation. Next was veteran Grey’s Anatomy, which finished second with 6.8/11 at 9 p.m. (on par with the year-ago evening), followed by sophomore Scandal at a very compatible 6.1/11 at 10 p.m. (#2). Comparably, Scandal built from year-ago occupant Private Practice (5.0/ 9 on 2/09/12) by 22 percent, with retention out of the 9:30 p.m. portion of Grey’s Anatomy (6.7/11) of a very solid 91 percent. Note to the cast of Scandal: Your renewal is on its way!

The CW capped off the evening with The Vampire Diaries (#5: 2.1/ 3), which decreased by 16 percent from one year earlier (2.5/ 4 on 2/09/12), followed by sluggish Beauty and the Beast at a 1.2/ 2 (#5) from 9-10 p.m. Not so beautiful, is it?

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.
