Jonny Lee Miller - Fall's Season of Renews: Elementary and Vegas Set to Return

Nina Tassler, the president of CBS Entertainment, delighted thousands of fans today as she confirmed the renewal of Elementary and Vegas.

Elementary is a new take on Sherlock Holmes and Watson, starring Jonny Lee Miller as the illusive detective, with a twist on the original Watson played by a woman, Lucy Liu. Vegas is also a crime based drama, which follows a Sheriff, played by Denis Quaid as he does 1960s battle with a Vegas mobster, brought to life by Michael Chiklis.

"Vegas and Elementary have opened strong, delivering big audiences and winning performances in important time periods," she said, reported by E! "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." In fact, the two shows take the top spots in ratings for new shows on the network. 

Homeland, X-Factor and Arrow have all been confirmed for renewal as well. What seems to be tying all of these excellent dramas together is their star drive; some of Hollywood's biggest names can be seen in these TV shows, and Homeland follows the trend, with Claire Danes and Damian Lewis, as does Boardwalk Empire with Steve Buscemi. Although the last couple of weeks have been jubilant for fans of these shows, ardent followers of the comedy Community were disappointed as the latest season was put back and filming stopped, indefinitely.
