CBS seems to like Vegas‘ odds.
The period crime drama, as well as the modern Sherlock Holmes tale Elementary, received full-season pickups from the Eye network Tuesday.
In a statement, CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler praised the dramas’ abilities to pull in viewers. “Vegas and Elementary have opened strong, delivering big audiences and winning performances in important time periods,” she says. “Each of the shows has rich characters, big stars and a unique visual style that have stood out in the crowd, helping make two of our strongest nights even stronger.”
Vegas routinely wins its Tuesday 10/9c time slot in both viewers and key demographics, and has improved on Unforgettable‘s audience by 8 percent in viewers. In The Mentalist‘s old spot Thursdays at 10, Elementary is up 17 percent in adults 18-49 and 10 percent in adults 24-54.
