Season averages: 3.10 in the demo with 13.41 million.

This was a positive start for the new series, particularly in viewership, but the demo could have been stronger — especially considering the fairly lackluster competition (Scandal on ABC and Rock Center with Brian Williams on NBC).

Compared to the season premiere of The Mentalist a year ago, CBS was up by 10% in the demo (vs a 2.8 rating) and down by 1% in viewers (vs 13.56 million).


Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

What do you think? Do you like the Elementary TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or be renewed for a second season?

I was deeply surprised to like this show because I LOVE the BBC’s version of Sherlock with Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch. Of the two, Sherlock is superior to Elementary, but Elementary has been a wonderful suprise.

First of all I must say that Elementary is one of the best slieuth shows, on the Holmes genre, i have ever seen, I love it so much and I frantically await the weekly episodes. I am a fervent fan of Sherlock Holmes I’ve watched all the tv series movies and have read all the books and short stories by Arthur Conan Doyle, it is surely captivating literatur. I have watched all the episodes, so far, of Elementary and i find it extraordinary. Therefore I most certainly would not want the series to end, EVER! So I would like to request the producers to please carry on making the show and fill our, the audiences, hearts with endless enamor. Thank you.

Like this show very much. Although I cannot watch it on Thursday nights, so watch later. Love the characters and find the story lines interesting.. Holmes is quirky and a pleasure to watch.

I love the show, but my husband doesn’t because he can’t understand Jonny Miller’s accent. It is a little nasal, but I’ve learned to understand him. Anyway, I record it and watch it later. I love Lucy Liu. I hope the writers don’t develop sexual tension between them. I like it when they are really good friends who work well together. It ruined Castle for me when the tension turned into a sexual relationship.

BEST TV show ever!! I seriously look so forward to Thursday nites! Miller is amazing in his character. I wasn’t really sure about Liu at first but she has proven me wrong. They both play so well off each other. They would be crazy to take this show off the air.

The show returns tonight at 10, still season 1. And season 2 will be coming back after the summer, in September. The finale for season 1 will air in May.
