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?

Keep the show. I watch it on line and aside from Big Bang this is really the only show I watch with any kind of regularity. I agree with Ashleigh when she suggests that comparisons between various renderings of Holmes are unnecessary and usually pointless. This one is good in its own right and really deserves to be developed further. Best Wishes to all fans of the show, SBP

Elementary is a great show and CBS needs to renew this one for the fall. And, I am not a regular viewer of much of anything on network TV other than HIMYM and BBT, both also CBS series, so if it has ME hooked (and it does,) well that is really saying something. It’s smart, with a good back story that continues to unfold and keeps the viewer interested and intrigued. Liu and Miller have a great chemistry. And well Miller, he’s just a sexy, smart guy with a great English accent and where is the downside there?

I tried…but after BBC´s Sherlock there´s no way I can watch this. This series should be made Before BBC´s Sherlock , or 20 years later. At the same time is unfair with Johnny Lee miller, that is an awesome actor.

BBC Sherlock is my favorite show. Followed by Doctor Who. But I love Elementary. The thing is you can’t compare them. One is practically a miniseries the other is more of the usual police drama but with the modern twist of Sherlock Holmes. Each personifies Sherlock in a unique way that I feel still rings true for the original. I really like the emphasis on Sherlock’s drug use in Elementary for example. I see no reason why both can’t be enjoyed or considered well done, for they both are extremely so. I for one really hope Elementary continues.
