As expected, CBS has picked up the back nine episodes of its two new dramas Vegas and Elementary.

Vegas, the Dennis Quaid starrer that also features Michael Chiklis as a mobster, typically wins its Tuesday at 10 time period in viewers (14.9 million) and adults 18-49 (2.7/8). It has also improved the versus last year by 8% in viewers.

Elementary stars Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu and has averaged 14.3 million viewers and a 3.5/10 in adults 18-49 in its  Thursday at 10 slot.  It is up 17% in adults 18-49.

This is the second significant move that CBS has made on its new fall lineup. Last week, it cancelled the low-rated Made in Jersey. CBS still has yet to decide whether to pick up more episodes of its new comedy Partners.
