Elementary: CBS Orders Even More Episodes

“Elementary, my dear CBS.” The network has ordered two additional installments of their new crime drama, Elementary. This brings the first season total to 24 episodes.

CBS gave the freshman TV series a full season order a few weeks ago.

Starring Jonny Lee Miller, Lucy Liu, and Aidan Quinn, Elementary debuted back in late September to a 3.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 13.41 million viewers. The ratings have come down quite a bit since then and last week’s installment hit a series low in the demo for the second time, a 2.2 rating with 10.9 million.

While Elementary isn’t a big ratings hit, the show wins its timeslot and is the network’s best-performing new show of the season. CBS has cut fellow freshman series Vegas by one episode.

What do you think? Do you like the Elementary TV series? Do you think the audience will grow over time?

    Elementary should be kept. It is our favorite. Miller and Liu are great together. Get rid of some of the many boring reality shows.
