“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.
