CBS has secured its first back-nine orders of the season, as it handed out full-season orders to Vegas and Elementary.
“Vegas and Elementary have opened strong, delivering big audiences and winning performances in important time periods,” said CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler. ”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.”
The two series air at 10 p.m. on their respective nights - Vegas on Tuesdays, Elementary on Thursdays. Each has shown consistency in the rating since debuting in September.
Vegas stars Dennis Quaid and is a period drama. It opened with a 2.5 rating with adults 18-49 and almost 15 million viewers. Since its premiere, it has done 2.0 ratings in the demo and averages 14.9 million viewers in Live+7 returns.
