In perhaps an unsurprising move, CBS has paired the returning Person of Interest with new Fall drama Elementary on Thursday nights, starting September 27th.

Person of Interest has been a resounding success story for the Network, with the season finale ‘Firewall’ drawing 13.4 million viewers – a little more than its premiere episode – and it’s likely CBS is hoping the show will prove a strong lead in for the latest modern day Sherlock Holmes adaptation.

A new CBS teaser splices footage from both shows, drawing attention to their similarities rather than their uniqueness. ‘They observe,” and “They deduce” being keywords to describe both Finch and Holmes.

What do you think? Will Elementary prove a perfect match for Person of Interest or will odd-couple crime-solving duos overload your Thursday TV schedule?
