Elementary: Sex And Action On 'Elementary' Post-Super Bowl.

Elementary has been given the ultimate network honors this year by being slotted after the Super Bowl. The timeslot gives the show, which is in its first season, exposure to its largest audience, and stars Lucy Liu and Jonny Lee Miller tease a good show.

The post-Super Bowl timeslot has helped many new shows get on their feet, as the audience for the NFL's championship game has averaged well over 100 million viewers in the past few years. The Voice experienced the reward of the timeslot last year for its Season 2 premiere, which garnered a whopping 37.6 million viewers.

"I didn't understand completely what that meant that we were coming on after the Super Bowl because it's on a Sunday and our show comes on Thursdays," said Lucy Liu, who plays "Watson" in the Sherlock Holmes modern adaptation, "but...that only meant that [CBS was] incredibly excited and confirmed that they believe in the show."
With more eyes than usual on the new crime drama, Liu previewed the episode as amped-up in comparison to Elementary's previous thirteen episodes of its first season. More sex and action are to be expected.

"I think it's dynamic in the way that it's still involves a procedural aspect of a murder," Liu revealed. "...There's a criminal that's unpredictable and that's what they are focusing on, and there's a side-story of Watson and her living situation...but there's a lot of sex and there's a lot of action in the show--more so than usual--and I think that dynamic actually plays really well into the Super Bowl."

While both Liu and Miller have previously been regulars on TV series, it has been a while for both of them since they have taken on a lead role on a show. Moreover, the two are acclimating to the nuances of this particular show.

"It's a constant adjustment," said Miller, who plays "Sherlock Holmes" in the series. "... You're just getting in the flow and just understanding one episode and then someone hands you a new one which you're about to start in a few days. So, it's a great balance of being kept on your toes and keeping your head straight and discovering the characters."

ME TOO but knowing Elementary's treatment of awesome side characters, Clyde'll probably disappear to return later in the season.

Idk I mean you don't have to pay a tortoise (maybe the trainer) and there should be no scheduling conflicts plus he doesn't take up much dialogue/screen time so... it could happen! (Still want to see Alonso again though.)
