All TV networks use their valuable time slots carefully. Come next February one of the biggest in any TV season will go to rookie CBS drama "Elementary."
The show, a modern take on Sherlock Holmes, will get the coveted post Super Bowl slot on Sunday, February 3rd, starting at approximately 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT.
"Super Bowl XLVII" typically gives big results to a show that follows the big game -- as well as helping to push nascent shows to new levels.
A year ago, NBC "The Voice", which followed the Super Bowl pulled in 37.6 million viewers. A year before that, Fox's "Glee", took in 26.8 million viewers. And the last time CBS had the big game -- 2010 --it started up new reality show "Undercover Boss" and got to 38.6 million viewers.
NBC's "Friends" in 1996 holds the all-time record for a post-Super Bowl show -- 52.9 million viewers. A year ago, the big game itself posted year another record ofviewers for
a single U.S. TV episode -- 111.3 million.
