Elementary Season 6 Expanded to 21 Episodes

Elementary Season 6 Extra Episodes

Expanding Elementary‘s Season 6 episode count in the wake of a freshman CBS drama cratering is… logical, my dear Watson.

The Eye network has upped the procedural’s midseason run from 13 episodes to a full-ish 21, our sister site Deadline reports. The order comes on the heels of CBS announcing that the Jeremy Piven-fronted freshman drama Wisdom of the Crowd would not be producing more than its initial 13 episodes.

Wisdom of the Crowd premiered on Oct. 1 to 8.8 million total viewers and a 1.3 rating, but went fractional in the demo with its fifth episode. To date, it is averaging 7.4 million viewers and a 1.0 rating. Among CBS dramas, it only outrates Scorpion and MacGyver (both averaging 0.8 this fall) and fellow Sunday series Madam Secretary (0.7).
