Elementary has been off its game this season. Mainly because the CBS hit has split up Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and Watson (Lucy Liu). Tonight's episode should have been a solid one.
How To Get Away With Murder has been destroying Elementary in the ratings.
There are no new episodes of that show until January 29th which means Elementary has the chance to rebuild the audience.
But we not only got another episode of Holmes and Watson apart, Lucy Liu wasn't even on the episode.
What the hell?
I don't follow gossip.
For example, reader Barney e-mailed to tell me Maggie Q and Dylan McDermott are a couple. I cover Stalker but I had no idea they were a couple off screen. Good for them.
But that had me wondering is Lucy Liu pregnant or something?
If so, that would explain her not being on the episode and the need for the new storyline.
If not, the show runner needs to get it together because Elementary is sucking these days.
The show really needs a sense of direction and to grasp that Holmes and Watson are a team.
Next week, Lucy Liu's back so maybe things will pick up.

As you can see, Schumer was a popular topic.
