We won’t know the match-up for months but we already have a winner in the Super Bowl sweepstakes for which show gets to ride the big game’s coattails.
This year, the honor of airing in the highly coveted post-Super Bowl spot goes to the freshman CBS drama “Elementary.”
The modern Sherlock Holmes procedural drama will air after the Super Bowl on February 3, CBS announced Monday.
For obvious reasons, most shows that are broadcast following the NFL’s annual championship game get a big (albeit usually temporary) ratings bump. In recent years, other shows that have scored the high-profile showcase include ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy,” Fox’s “Glee,” and NBC’s “The Voice.”
“Elementary” airs Thursdays at 10/9c on CBS.
