'Elementary' Super Bowl Episode - What You Need to Know!

Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu‘s hit CBS show Elementary will be airing in the coveted post-Super Bowl slot later tonight and we have the details on the big episode!

Elementary is a modern take on the cases of Sherlock Holmes (Miller), with the detective now living in New York City.

Here’s the official synopsis for tonight’s episode, “The Deductionist”: Sherlock pursues Martin Ennis (Terry Kinney), an unpredictable criminal, before he strikes again. During the investigation, Sherlock is forced to work alongside Kathryn Drummond (Kari Matchett), the FBI profiler who literally wrote the book on Ennis. Meanwhile, Watson (Liu) faces eviction from her apartment.

The executive producers had originally planned on airing an episode in that slot involving a mythological story line that would reveal some secrets to the series, but they decided to change it up to make it less complicated for new viewers.

“We found out we were doing a Super Bowl episode when I was breaking ‘M.,’” executive producer Rob Doherty told TVGuide.com. “I wondered, ‘Well, hey, we have a big mythological story here, many secrets are revealed. Is there something to be said for pushing this story to that slot?’ The reason we didn’t was one of the goals and hopes when you air an episode in that slot is to bring new people in and I feel like ‘M.’ is far more satisfying for people who have been watching the show from the beginning. Ultimately, in that slot, it becomes a little exclusive in that the majority of the audience will be going, ‘OK, who’s he and how does she know him?’”

    I love the show… it’s smart, has snappy dialog and offbeat. Liu and Miller are perfect foils for one another.
