This is the BBC trailer on the opening of season three of Sherlock.  The season opener hit the UK on January 1 and premieres in Columbus on January 20, Monday night at 9 pm on WOSU TV.  The two hour season opener will be most interesting.  If you haven’t seen Sherlock, you will be hooked.

    Could you explain why we’re getting the Sherlock premiere a day later than the rest of the country, and why the “Unlocking Sherlock” special won’t be airing here until three weeks after it aired elsewhere in the U.S.? That’s rather disappointing.

    • Nick Houser

      We’ve received some inquiries regarding the decision to show Sherlock Season 3 on Monday nights rather than Sunday nights when PBS suggested the program air. Because of the late start time for the new season of Sherlock, the episodes wouldn’t end until midnight. We wanted to give the show an ideal position in primetime on Monday nights.

      At the same time, we wanted to be mindful of our dedicated local audience of Independent Lens, which is shown at 10 pm on Sunday nights. WOSU TV has one of the highest rated audiences in the PBS system for the documentary series.

      Thank you for your interest in WOSU TV and support of quality programming on PBS and WOSU.

    Heavens knows I’m with everyone on the “what the heck is this?” train.

    Please pass along to your program director that whatever program they chose to book tonight such that “Sherlock” was bounced to tomorrow was a very, very poor decision. In an age of digital downloads, where this episode will be available tomorrow morning on iTunes and on pbs.org, postponing such a massively popular show is just plain stupid. If I am paying for it on iTunes, or watching it for free tomorrow on pbs.org, means I will not be watching in on WOSU tomorrow night. Which makes me wonder what need have we of WOSU? And thus why give your station money?

  • Jon Kent

    Again, why are we waiting till tomorrow for this?
