Here are the trailers for CBS's new series from this afternoon's upfront meeting.
You can also check out the new series trailers from NBC, from ABC, and from Fox.
Made In Jersey
I watched all of them and none of them impressed me.
Vegas looks like a cable show. Sophia Bush is hot as always, but thats all I can say about Partners. I think Elementary would be better if Watson was not Lucy Liu. But I still think it has the most chance to be sucessful among these. Made in Jersey looks like a fun show to pass the time, but after watching a quality drama like TGW, I expect more from lawyer shows.
I think I’ll stick with TGW, Mentalist and POI next year.
I guess it’s what always happens when you cannibalize the same character tropes over and over again!
I don’t know how good Made In Jersey will be, but they need to cast Montgomery in the next Tomb Raider movie ASAP!
I didn’t bother to watch Elementary. Vegas strikes me as a poor man’s Justified, but I will give it a try for Dennis Quaid and Michael Chiklis. I won’t watch Made in Jersey. I will give Partners a chance because I like Michael Urie and Sophia Bush, but I can’t stand that Numbers guy or Brandon Rouch who ruined Superman.
Will be watching Partners for Sophia Bush.
Don’t think I’ll be checking any of the others out
partners looks AWFUL…sophia bush could do SOOOOOOO much better!!!
I like how the people behind Elementary are acting like what they’re doing is so original and revolutionary and not a shameless ripoff of a better show. But wait! It’s not a COMPLETE ripoff, because our Watson is a girl, which means we’ll be able to do a will they/won’t they/of course they will, you goddamn idiot relationship! Ugh…
The trailers for Partners and Made in Jersey didn’t look good either. Not watching the Vegas trailer, because that looks like the only show that might be good. Other than that one, it’s looking like the same old crap for CBS. And of course, I’m sure all of our grandmothers will gobble it up as usual.
Like SarahL said,Vegas seems like Justified 2.0.Dennis Quaid deserves a chance and seems different from the typical cbs drama and it shouldn t be placed on the scedule after the 2 ncis!Parteners seems promising!The scene with the dog is hilarious
Listen, I LOVE the current BBC Sherlock, but it can’t make big claims at being original either. They’re just both modern takes on a classic, beloved character and (at least in the case of the BBC version) stories.
Elementary has the best shot of all of these. It doesn’t matter that it’s a ripoff. The Voice is a total ripoff of Idol, and yet it’s still a huge success.
Vegas, is Justified 2.0, but Justified is not right for CBS.
Made in Jersey, I don’t know. Seems breezy and very girly. Will it be Ally McBeal? At best, maybe.

Not necessarily “as usual”. Unforgettable and A Gifted Man were not gobbled up.
CBS has had one new drama stick in each of the last several seasons. It’s not too far from “having one stick” to “having zero stick”. I’m sure Les and Nina realize that too.
@Holly. hahaha. You nailed it. An adaptation of a 100 year old book can make no claim to originality. You think BBC invented Sherlock? No. Neither did Robert Downey Jr. Or the 1000 other versions that came out of it.
HOLY GREEN SCREENS for VEGAS ! Las Vegas my butt! Just a production building of them acting in front of green screens.
Elementary looks good. I will give a try.
Vegas is the one i’m excited about the most among all CBS new shows. What a cast!
Partners could be good. I liked Will & Grace so maybe i will like this one too.
Made in Jersey looks horrible. And boring.
And what the hell is this stereotype of CBS is only being watched by Grandpas & Grandmas? I only see it on the comment section of this website? Don’t they know what A 18-49 ratings mean? Never makes sense at all.
Vegas, Elementary, & Made in New Jersey, could all work at least as well as anything they are replacing.
I did cringe when watching Partners, there were in that short clip just to many moments that mimicked Will & Grace.
Elementary < Sherlock?
Elementary might be ok. Partners looks stupid. The chick is cute in the lawyer one.. But lawyer shows..eh
It’s an old joke that really doesn’t make sense anymore. Though, CBS does win the older demos by a wide margin and generally loses the 18-34 demo, when it comes to 18-49, they’re easily beating ABC and NBC, and do better with their scripted programming than FOX does.
I just figured out what word got my post caught in the spam filter. Bill or Robert, if you see it, you can delete it.
The fade-in/fade-out sequence at the beginning of the Elementary trailer is almost seizure-inducing.
I’m not getting the concern over the period aspect of Vegas. It looks like it’s going to be very, very light. Hardly Mad Men, Pan Am, or Playboy Club. But yes, the Justified-ness of the whole thing was amusing.
Ding, ding, ding, winner! Also a huge Sherlock fan here, but it’s not like that’s the first modern version of the character either. Basil Rathbone’s Sherlock was facing off against the World War II-era Germans in the 1940s movie series. Not exactly the stuff of Arthur Conan Doyle.
