Watching Sherlock Holmes after the Ravens and the 49ers go head-to-head in the Super Bowl may not seem like a natural fit, but come Sunday, a few million more eyeballs will be tuning in for CBS' hit freshman drama Elementary — and whether those viewers have seen the show or not, they'll certainly be in for a ride.

Each and every one of them is...

It took a special species to rescue HBO from several years in the comedy doldrums, when most everything (except sporadic seasons of Curb Your Enthusiasm) felt overly precious or ironic and hardly ever funny.
