-Ratings Breakdown:
ABC dominated the Monday overnights, beating second-place NBC by an average of 19 percent. But the home of “The Voice,” of course, remains the network to beat in adults 18-49 and the other key young adult demos.

Guest star Cher lifted ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” to a dominant 9.7 rating/15 share from 8-10 p.m., which was five percent above the 9.2/14 one week earlier. And “Dancing With the Stars” bested competing “The Voice” on NBC (#2: 7.6/11 from 8-10 p.m.), which is a lock in the young demos, by 28 percent.

Lead-out “Castle” on ABC won the 10 p.m. hour in the overnights with a 6.9/12, which was one-tenth of a rating point (or one percent) above “The Blacklist” on NBC (6.8/12). But “The Blacklist,” which held 92 percent of the 9:30 p.m. portion of “The Voice” (7.4/11), is the show to beat demographically.

Ranking a distant third at 10 p.m. remains “Hostages” on CBS with a mere 3.3/ 6, which was 35 percent below the year-ago airing of former time period occupant “Hawaii Five-O” (5.1/ 9 on 11/05/12).

In season-premiere news, sitcom “Mike & Molly” on CBS did not disappoint with a third-place 6.1/ 9 in the overnights at 9 p.m. Comparably, that beat year-ago occupant “2 Broke Girls” (5.9/ 9 on 11/05/12) by three percent. And it built from its lead-in, also “2 Broke Girls” (#3: 5.4/ 8 at 8:30 p.m.), by 13 percent.
Next on CBS was recent entry “Mom” at a third-place 5.0/ 8 at 9:30 p.m., which increased from one week earlier (4.7/ 7 on Oct. 28) by six percent. Note to the writers on “Mom”: make sure Allison Janney remains on the forefront.

Earlier in the evening on the Eye net was demo friendly “How I Met Your Mother” at a typical third-place 5.6/ 8 in the overnights at 8 p.m. The bottom line: If “Mike & Molly” holds up, and there is every reason to believe it will, the CBS Monday comedy block is an improved competitive option. But “Hostages” at 10 p.m. remains the weak link.

Elsewhere, “Bones” on Fox, which shifts to Fridays at 8 p.m. effective on Nov. 15 (in place of new drama “Almost Human”) was respectable at a fourth-place 4.7/ 7 at 8 p.m. And that led into a perfectly compatible 4.5/ 7 (but series low) for already renewed “Sleepy Hollow” at 9 p.m., which returned after a two week absence of original episodes. The CW, meanwhile, could not compete with its combination of “Hart of Dixie” (#5: 1.0/ 1) and sophomore “Beauty and the Beast” (#5: 0.7/ 1).

About the Daily Ratings

Each day (except Sunday) during the main TV Season we post the TV Ratings for the previous nights primetime shows for the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, CW, FOX, NBC). Cable Network ratings will be added to the Ratings Database.

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).

Next, if available, we will post the Top 25 Market 18-49 Ratings to give you a rough idea of the ratings to following.

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. The Final Adjusted numbers are what we use for all our Renew/Cancellation Tables, Full Season Tables, Ratings Scorecards etc (see below). Friday's Final Adjusted Ratings are normally available on the following Monday.

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.
