CBS has picked the modern Sherlock Holmes drama Elementary to follow the network’s Super Bowl broadcast on February 3.

Recent examples of this success story include CBS’ Criminal Minds, ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy, Fox’s Glee and NBC’s The Voice. However, reality series tend to do better than scripted following American TV’s highest-rated yearly telecast.
