WHOA! That's a serious success!
The BBC has announced that Benedict Cumberbatch's Sherlock is officially the "most watched drama series in a whole decade!"
Not only this, but it's the most watched drama series across ALL of their networks!
The third season of the series, which kicked off on New Year's Day and also stars Martin Freeman, has been pulling in an AVERAGE of 11.82 million viewers an episode!
AND not only this, but that also includes anyone who watched it using a DVR or the BBC's iPlayer catch-up service!
That's crazy AH-MAZING!
AND all these record-breaking numbers are solely the UK results, since it only premiered in the U.S. on Sunday night!
People just cannot get enough of Benedict! And rightfully so! He's the ultimate British hottie!
We love it!!
