via press note:

Last night’s late starting post Super Bowl broadcast of Elementary (11:15PM-12:15AM) averaged 12.0/24 in the metered markets and is on track to being the freshman drama’s most watched episode and highest rated in key demographics. The 11:15 start is the latest for any post Super Bowl program


Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson (12:45-1:45 AM) averaged a preliminary 3.2/11.


Time zone adjusted fast nationals will be available later today.

    @jean – I believe it already is a hit.

  • Maine

    Sorry CBS,
    we switched to ESPN @the boring naked women scene.
    should’ve switched at the end of post game show.

  • PurpleDrasi

    Disappointing certainly but it got more eyeballs on the show than its ever had before. That was the whole point, right?

  • s0303

    it got more than double what tbbt got last week, so i’m sure cbs is happy with it considering the late start…now we’ll see if it actually helps the ratings much…

  • ChannelDante

    Eehh not bad. I don’t really like this show but Hopefully it generated new viewers. We shall see this Thursday.

    Elementary was already a hit before it aired after the Superbowl, this wasn’t its first broadcasting, it’s ratings will only get better after this!

    The 11:15 start is the latest for any post Super Bowl program

    What time did alias start?

    it’s ratings will only get better after this!

    Not if the people who watch it like intelligent writing and good acting.

    Jonny Lee Miller is awesome – lucy Liu is not – aidan quinn is awesome – but liu and miller have less chemistry than oil and water

    Poor Craig. His normal time slot is 12:37 and he didn’t go on until 12:47 here in Buffalo.

    @John_M: Alias started at 11:01p. Technically, I think Elementary started at 11:11, but because they can’t segment the metered market numbers by the minute, they started with the first 15 minute period that was all Elementary.

  • BRT

    I don’t watch Elementary (I tend to catch up on new shows after season one), but it’s getting renewed, and anyone who thinks otherwise is fooling themselves.

  • xwiseguyx

    Craig Ferguson was replaced with CSI Miami rerun in Chicago..

  • Chris

    Waiting for the final numbers! Hope it gains more viewers next week? I love the show.

  • MichaelChickless

    Will they be releasing demographic ratings?

  • MichaelChickless

    Is the 12.0 household or 18-49?

  • LOL

    LMAO @ anyone who thinks Elementary isn’t a hit. It might not have the greatest ratings, but it is a hit and isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Plus if the post Superbowl ratings aren’t that good, it’s because of the delay, it has nothing to do with the quality of the show, trolls. Plus, it might grow like POI did this year, so shut up.

  • lakersupbyten

    Yea elementary got great ratings…Lucy Loud and JLM have great chemistry!!!

  • Jane

    I enjoyed the episode. More gruesome than usual, though.

  • lakersupbyten

    Yea!! Elementary got great ratings..Lucy Liu and JLM have great chemistry!!!

  • HalCapone

    Elementary is not a “hit”. It ratings performance is mediocre like most 10 pm shows of late. After a modestly good debut it has been languishing. I don’t see Elementary lasting more than 2 seasons. It will probably end up on Fridays next year and then be canceled.

  • Barbarossa

    Given the late start, thats honestly better than i expected
