I’ve been enamored with CBS’s new series Elementary. Call it a long time crush on Jonny Lee Miller who plays the title role of Sherlock, but either way, the series is really entertaining. Lucy Lui is also wonderful as Dr. Watson, Sherlock’s partner-in-crime, so to speak. While I haven’t had a chance to tune into Vegas, with CBS giving these two freshman series full season renewals, that speaks volumes all on its own.
In a press release today:
CBS GIVES FULL SEASON ORDERS TO TELEVISION’S #1 AND #2 NEW SERIES — “VEGAS” AND “ELEMENTARY”
Freshman Dramas Win Their Time Periods in Viewers and Key Demographics
CBS has given full season “back nine” orders to television’s top two freshman series — VEGAS and ELEMENTARY.
“VEGAS and ELEMENTARY have opened strong, delivering big audiences and winning performances in important time periods,” said Nina Tassler, President, CBS Entertainment. “Each of the shows has rich characters, big stars and a unique visual style that have stood out in the crowd, helping make two of our strongest nights even stronger.”
