    Made In Jersey, possibly Elementary,and Vegas. The rest just sounds lame especially the one named Golden Boy.

    all six sound lame to me, I might check out elementary, but it sounds like a rewrite of a classic that will miss the creative string of Doyle.

    I will probably check out Elementary for curiosity's sake, if for no other reason. I have fond hopes that they don't completely destroy Arthur Conan Doyle's characters for the sake of television ratings.
