Here's a few interesting highlights from Monday's Live+7 DVR Ratings release for the week of 18-24 March

The Mentalist

The episode of The Mentalist, titled "Behind The Red Curtain", which aired on March 24, earned the lowest Live+SD rating in series history, with a minuscule 1.4 rating, and 8.00 million viewers. The Live+7 results also reflected this. In the 2 seasons of Live+7 DVR Ratings data that I've collected and put on my website, "Behind The Red Curtain" earned the lowest L+7 rating and audience in those two seasons, climbing to a 2.0 rating and 10.237 million viewers. CBS have done a fantastic job of cannibalizing The Mentalist's viewership by moving it to late night on Sundays.

"Seek", which aired on March 19, had the lowest Live+7 DVR rating of 4.4, and audience of 23.468 million viewers since "Shabbat Shalom", which aired back on January 8, to a 4.7 Live+7 DVR rating, and audience of 24.900 million viewers. It's been a steady drop over the last few episodes in both Live+SD and Live+7 ratings and audience since the most viewed episode in the series, which aired the week after "Shabbat Shalom".

Once Upon A Time

Once Upon A Time has experienced a steady descent in ratings and audience across both Live+SD and Live+7 DVR statistics since the beginning of the season. "Selfless, Brave and True", which aired on March 24, saw the lowest Live+7 DVR rating in series history, with the rating climbing from a Live+SD 2.2 rating, to a Live+7 =3.2 rating. This episode earned the second lowest Live+7 DVR audience in series history, with 9.792 million viewers tuning in across the 7 day period. With the first 11 episodes of the season averaging a 4.56 Live7 rating and 12.45 million viewers, the Live+7 statistics for "Selfless, Brave and True" don't make for pretty reading in comparison

Scandal's "Top of The Hour" episode which aired on March 21, starred Lisa Edelstein, and broke the series record for most viewed episode in the Live+SD numbers. After seven days, that audience had climbed to 11.118 million viewers, just shy of the current most watched Live+7 DVR episode which earned 11.126 million viewers. The last 7 episodes on the trot have seen Live+7 audiences of more than 10 million viewers, and Live+7 ratings of 2.6 or more

The 98th episode of Castle, titled "Scared To Death" aired on March 18, and earned a 2.2 Live+SD rating and 11.26 million Live+SD viewers. At the time, it was the most viewed episode of the season, but has since been eclipsed by the 100th episode which aired last week. However, the Live+7 audience for this episode is the highest Live+7 audience since the premiere of season 4, titled "Rise". A massive 15.242 million people watched "Scared To Death" through the week, with no other episode this season breaking the 15 million mark since the finale of season 4. "Rise" earned a 4.1 Live+7 rating - the only episode from last season and this season to earn a Live+7 rating of 4.0 or more - and 16.053 million viewers - the most watched episode of Castle these last 2 seasons. The three seasons prior to seasons 4 and 5 may have better statistics though, but I'm yet to dig through the web to find these statistics

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.
