Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

What do you think? Do you like the Golden Boy TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

Love Golden Boy! Please keep it on the schedule CBS! Actually made room on my DVR for it and got rid of another series!
Never could get in to Vegas, moving it to Fridays could be a good move if they want to keep the series. Would like them to keep CSI:NY also, yet it had a good season/series finale if not.


Gabe March 11, 2013 at 10:31 am

All shows nowadays have crime or they are police action, well we’re missing some adventure shows ex. Lost or fun shows ex. Boston Legal. Where are those kind of shows? Come on CSI, Law and order, come on, season 100??? End them already


Woody March 10, 2013 at 11:46 am

TV is just entertainment and thats just what Golden Boy is. I like it


Joyce March 7, 2013 at 2:42 pm

I wasn’t impressed with it AT ALL. Although I really like Chi McBride, I think he’s wasted in this show. I’m NOT in law enforcement, and even I know that the plot line is RIDICULOUS. Bring back Vegas!!!! Long Live Bluebloods!!!!


Rhonda Brown March 6, 2013 at 1:00 am

Fiction TV is just that, fiction and an escape from reality. I think you guys need to watch Golden Boy again for entertainment. Tune into Boston’s Finest for reality law enforcement.


emaegf March 7, 2013 at 12:43 am

So totally agree.


carol tokach March 5, 2013 at 10:29 pm

I really like Golden Boy waited for it tonight. I really like the actors and I hope this show continues.


Anonymous March 5, 2013 at 12:59 am

Vegas is a great show. Everyone I talk to (and that’s a lot) love the show and say they’ve got it set on their DVRs. So, who decides the ratings aren’t good enough. Somebody’s misinterpreting the data or has some misguided motivations. Let’s hope the execs get it right and keep Vegas going!


Clark March 3, 2013 at 10:29 pm

As a retired Law Enforcement I think the show sucks. It is very bad and I will not watch any more of it. One show qas enough for me


BJ March 1, 2013 at 8:19 pm

I’m from NYC where the police department is the size of a small country. No how, no way would this arrogant, cut corners show off be the youngest anything ever! Cancel this please and take us out of our misery. This is NOT BLUEBLOODS.


Clark March 3, 2013 at 10:30 pm

BJ you are right on Clark
