'Elementary' (CBS)

Globe voters might just prove alert enough to single out this clever update of the Sherlock Holmes story that boasts well-matched leads in Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu. Miller's Holmes is a former Scotland Yard consultant who lands in New York City to check into a drug rehab program, then stays on and resumes detective work while saddled with a sobriety companion in the form of Dr. Joan Watson (Liu). The procedural has a real cheerleader in David Hinckley of the New York Daily News, who calls it "the season's best new broadcast drama." Assessment: "I like 'Elementary,' and the Golden Globes love to recognize the Brits, so Miller will probably get something, and she's good too. It's a solid show but not a huge stand-out. I enjoy it." Giovanni Rufino / CBS
