After a very light Thanksgiving week, most of our shows were back in force to make their presence felt before the holiday break. The Walking Dead hit its midseason finale with predictably huge numbers, while Once Upon a Time and American Horror Story: Asylum began to bounce back after slumps.
Premiere week has come and gone, and we've once again got a full slate of new fall shows to follow. This week saw the return of Fringe, Once Upon a Time, Person of Interest and more, along with the debuts of new shows like Elementary, 666 Park Avenue and Last Resort. So how'd they do?

Ever since the BBC hit it out of the park with its awesome, modern-day reimagining of Sherlock, the classic detective has become a much hotter property on the small screen.

So did the U.S. edition of Sherlock Holmes make the schedule?
Hot on the heels of the recent announcement that CBS had picked up the Sherlock-Holmes-in-Modern-Day-New-York series Elementary for its upcoming fall season, here comes our first official look at Johnny Lee Miller as the greatest sleuth of all time, Sherlock Holmes, and Lucy Liu as his BFF sidekick, Dr. Joan Watson. What can we say about it? Plaid. Is. In.
