-Ratings Breakdown:
Two-hours of "American Idol" kept Fox in the Wednesday overnight winner's circle. And it will be enough to dominate among adults 18-49 (and the other key demos). But an 8.3 rating/13 share from 8-10 p.m. (peaking in the 8:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. half hours, with an 8.5/13) was still 26 percent below the 11.3/18 on the comparable year-ago evening.

In week two news, ABC sitcom "How to Live With Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life") finished third at 9:30 p.m. with a 5.3/ 8 in the overnights. Comparably, that was just 12 percent below its week-ago opener (6.0/ 9 on April 3). The retention out of lead-in "Modern Family" (#3: 7.3/11 at 9 p.m.) was 73 percent, which is a marked improvement from recent time period occupant "Suburgatory." And compared to the series-premiere of "Don't Trust the B____ in Apartment 23" on the year-ago evening (5.0/ 8 out of a 7.5/11 for "Modern Family"), this was an increase of six percent. Two episodes in, and "How to Live With Your Parents" is promising.

Earlier in the evening on ABC were comedies "The Middle" (5.3/ 9) and "Suburgatory" (4.2/ 7), which each finished third in their half-hours from 8-9 p.m. And on-the-fence freshman drama "Nashville" finished second at 10 p.m. with a 4.4/ 8. Keep in mind that normally competing "Chicago Fire" on NBC, which is a shoo-in for renewal for next season, was replaced by an encore of the pilot episode of "Hannibal" (#3: 2.3/ 4).

Over at CBS, reliable "Survivor: Caramoan" finished a comfortable second at 8 p.m. with a 6.3/10 in the overnights, which was on par with the comparable year-ago evening. Tell us what you think about last night's episode of "Survivor" by visiting our Facebook page at http://tinyurl.com/adorfec.

Next on the Eye net was underrated "Criminal Minds" at a second-place 7.6/12 at 9 p.m., which was consistent from one year earlier, followed by granddaddy "CSI" at a dominant 7.3/13 at 10 p.m. Year-to-year, "CSI" increased by nine percent. At present, CBS is still in conversations to renew worthy "Criminal Minds" for next season.

Elsewhere, "Dateline" opened for NBC with a third-place 3.9/ 6 at 8 p.m., which is an improvement over recent comedies "Whitney" and "Guys With Kids." Next was a repeat of "Law & Order: SVU" (#4: 3.1/ 5 at 9 p.m.), followed by the aforementioned "Hannibal" encore at a third-place 2.3/ 4 at 10 p.m.

The CW capped off the night with repeats of "Arrow" (#5: 1.1/ 2) and "Supernatural" (#5: 0.8/ 1) from 8-10 p.m., which both have already been renewed for next season.

About the Daily Ratings

Each day (except Sunday) we post the TV Ratings for the previous night.

The first item that gets posted (normally around 2pm GMT) is the early overnight analysis based on the early household numbers (these are not the same as the Total Viewers and 18-49 Demo numbers that are posted later).

Later on (normally between 4pm-5pm GMT) we post the official early overnight Total Viewers and 18-49 Demo numbers in the table above.

Finally, later in the evening (10pm-11pm GMT) or the following day, the final adjusted ratings numbers are released, these are then posted in the Ratings Database.

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.
