What’s This TV Show About?
A CBS detective drama based on the classic Sir Arthur Conan Doyle characters, Elementary stars Jonny Lee Miller as detective Sherlock Holmes and Lucy Liu as Dr. Joan Watson. The cast also includes Aidan Quinn as Captain Thomas Gregson and Jon Michael Hill as Detective Marcus Bell, with Desmond Harrington in the role of Michael. This updated take on the detective story centers on Holmes and Watson, as they help the NYPD investigate the trickiest crimes in New York City.
Season Six Ratings
The sixth season of Elementary averaged a 0.48 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.79 million viewers. Compared to season five, that’s down by 26% and 22%, respectively. Find out how Elementary stacks up against the other CBS TV shows.
The sixth season premiered with much lower numbers than last year, but it is still too early to predict whether CBS will cancel or renew Elementary for season seven. While they have more than enough episodes for a decent syndication package, this year, it feels like CBS used Elementary as its stopgap. Although they initially ordered just 13 episodes, back in late November (months ahead of the premiere), they wound up ordering an additional eight episodes, after some weak spots in the schedule became apparent. By all rights, this should be Elementary‘s final season, but I don’t have a strong feeling on its chances. I think it will depend upon the strength of the CBS development slate. For now, I’ll look to the Nielsens for a better indication and update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free Elementary cancellation or renewal alerts.
