There's nothing suspect about Elementary's premiere numbers.
The CBS drama opened big Thursday, bowing to 13.2 million viewers and a 3.1 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, winning the 10 p.m. hour in both measures. The Sherlock Holmes update also built on lead-in Person of Interest's demo (14.2 million, 3.0) and was up from what timeslot predecessor The Mentalist's 2.8 rating last year.
The other new series of the night, ABC's Last Resort, nabbed 9 million viewers and a 2.2. That's just a tenth higher in the demo compared to Charlie's Angel's debut in the slot last fall.
