    Ratings Breakdown:
    Note: ESPN ran the “Rose Bowl” last night.

    CBS topped this first Monday in 2017 based on the household overnights, besting No. 2 ABC by four-tenths of a rating point (or 11 percent). But the bigger story was the season-premiere installments of ABC’s “The Bachelor” opposite NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice,” with Arnold Schwarzenegger. “The Terminator” was not tough enough to beat romance reality TV style on “The Bachelor,” with ABC’s veteran first quarter time period filler at a 4.4 rating/7 share in the household overnights from 8-10 p.m. “Celebrity Apprentice” scored a 3.6/ 6.

    Comparably, however, “The Bachelor” slipped by 19 percent from the season-opener on the year-ago evening (5.4/ 8 on Monday, Jan. 4, 2016). And “Celebrity Apprentice,” which took a break last season, was also on the downside, slipping by 28 percent from the 5.0/ 8 it scored in the overnights in its Monday 8-10 p.m. time period debut on Jan. 15, 2015. Let’s wait and see what the demos look like and how these two franchises fare next week minus the “Rose Bowl” in the competition.

    Airing out of “Celebrity Apprentice” was the time period debut of NBC game show “The Wall” at a 3.1/ 5 at 10 p.m., which bested a primetime edition of “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on ABC (#3: 2.3/ 5) by 35 percent. “Scorpion” on CBS won the 10 p.m. hour with a 4.5/ 8.

    Earlier in the evening on CBS was the sitcom rotation of “Kevin Can Wait” (#1: 4.6/ 7), “Man With a Plan” (#2: 4.1/ 6), “2 Broke Girls” (#2: 3.6/ 6) and “The Odd Couple” (#3: 3.4/ 5) from 8-10 p.m.

    Elsewhere, Fox got minimal traction out of a two-hour airing of “MasterChef Celebrity Showdown,” which scored a 2.3/ 4 in the household overnights from 8-10 p.m. And The CW ducked the competition with an encore telecast of night two of the “iHeartRadio Music Festival,” which averaged a 0.6/ 1,

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.
