Airing on Thursday nights, Elementary has never been a hit show for CBS and the ratings saw a sizable drop last season. After this season, there will be enough episodes for a syndication package. Will season four be the end? Cancelled or renewed for a fifth season? Stay tuned.
A contemporary update on the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle characters, Elementary follows eccentric detective Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and Doctor Joan Watson (Lucy Liu) as they help solve crimes in New York. Aidan Quinn and Jon Michael Hill co-star.
