'Elementary' voted most exciting new CBS show by Digital Spy readers
Rather unsurprisingly - given all the commotion that's surrounded it - it was Sherlock Holmes in contemporary New York drama Elementary that emerged as the clear winner with 46.8% of the total vote. We're definitely going to give the Jonny Lee Miller / Lucy Liu series a try, but we'll also admit to being slightly sceptical - is there actually a decent show behind all the hype?
Second place went to Partners, the new comedy from the creators of Will & Grace. Starring Michael Urie (Ugly Betty), David Krumholtz (Numb3rs), Sophia Bush (One Tree Hill) and Brandon Routh (Superman Returns), this sitcom, which scored 19.2%, is the tale of two architects who are friends and business partners. But the crazy twist is... Urie's character is gay, while Krumholtz is straight. A gay and straight man as friends - whatever next?!
Coming in third with 18.6% was stylish Dennis Quaid / Michael Chiklis series Vegas, a '60-set cops vs. mobsters drama inspired by the true story of former Las Vegas Sheriff Ralph Lamb. In at number four (with a considerably lower 7.7%) was legal drama Made in Jersey - we think this young-female-laywer-rebels-against-the-system show looks a little generic, but it's got Kyle MacLachlan in it, so we're still intrigued.
The bottom two spots in our poll were taken up by midseason shows Golden Boy and Friend Me - tellingly, the only two new CBS series we've yet to see any footage from. The former - a cop drama starring Brit actor Theo James - managed to pull in 5.8%, while the latter - a sitcom starring Superbad's McLovin, Christopher Mintz-Plasse - limped into last place with a meagre 1.9%.
So Elementary wins an utterly unsurprising victory - check back here tomorrow for our final round of poll results, this time from The CW. Does Arrow have you all acquiver? Are you more excited to catch up with Carrie and her diaries in the Sex and the City prequel? Or will another show altogether come out on top?
