NEW YORK, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- About 20.8 million viewers tuned in for an episode of the New York-set Sherlock Holmes mystery series "Elementary" after the Super Bowl, CBS said.

The network declared Sunday's edition of the show "television's highest-rated entertainment broadcast of the year."

The hour-long episode started at 11:11 p.m. EST after the high-profile football game, aired on the same network, ended. The game ran long because of a 34-minute delay caused by a power outage at the New Orleans stadium where the game was played.

The first-season series stars Jonny Lee Miller, Lucy Liu and Aidan Quinn. It usually airs Thursday nights at 10 p.m. EST.
