Sunday, January 19, 2014: Sherlock

Between Sherlock and The Hobbit, Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch have won Tumblr for all of January.

The dynamic duo and heterosexual life partners reunite in human form (after meeting as a dragon and a hobbit respectively in the second installment of Peter Jackson's blockbuster trilogy) as Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, modern-day versions of the immortal characters created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Under the guiding hand of Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat, Sherlock has become a legitimate sensation on both sides of the Atlantic and honors the detective's legacy more effectively than the Robert Downey Jr. film franchise. Maybe the secret of the series' success is how little there is of it; each season only lasts three episodes, which are at least packed with 90 minutes of Cumberbatchian goodness. Tonight's Season 3 premiere, "The Empty Hearse," picks up some two years after Sherlock's supposed demise at the hands of his nemesis Moriarty and reveals that -- spoiler alert! -- reports of Holmes's death have been greatly exaggerated. The good folks at PBS have begged us not to reveal the details of his return or the case he and his reunited partner embark on. On the other hand, they didn't restrict us from telling y'all that it's awesome.

Season 3 of Sherlock premieres tonight on PBS at 10 PM, opposite the series season finale of ABC's Betrayal. At 10:30 PM, Fox premieres the sophomore season of The Following while E! offers another horror show in the form of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, which returns for Season 9 (we'll repeat that again… Season 9), at 9 PM.
