LOS ANGELES (AP) - Sherlock Holmes is going to the Super Bowl.

CBS said Monday that its freshman drama series about the famous detective is getting the post-Super Bowl broadcast slot in February.

“Elementary,” set in modern New York City, stars Jonny Lee Miller as Holmes and Lucy Liu as his sidekick, Dr. Joan Watson.

The series, which airs Thursdays, will get a special airing at 10 p.m. EST on Sunday, Feb. 3, following CBS Sports’ coverage of the Super Bowl in New Orleans, the network said.

The NFL championship game is historically among TV’s most-watched programs, so airing after it can help a series get discovered by more viewers.
