Lucy Liu Will Play Watson in New Sherlock Holmes Show, If You Can Dig It

CBS has picked up a new batch of half-baked shows that will either give viewers salmonella or be melty and delicious, including a Sherlock Holmes show called — brace yourselves — Elementary. Another Sherlock Holmes something, you say with an exasperated sigh and an exclamation point[!] Ah, but this Sherlock Holmes show has a twist — Watson will be played by a woman, none other than turn-of-the-millenium-female-action-star Lucy Liu. Aren't you just soooo excited that CBS is pandering to female audiences with a crime-solving sidekick? Why can't Kyra Sedgwick just play Sherlock? Oh, that's right — because she already does.
