Vegas: Cancelled Quickly or a Big Hit?

Vegas on CBS cancelled soon or a big hit?CBS’s CSI series has been a ratings success for the network for 12 seasons now. Could their newest Las Vegas-based show, Vegas, last as long? Will it be quickly cancelled, a moderate success, or a big hit instead?

Vegas revolves around fourth-generation rancher Ralph Lamb (Dennis Quaid) who’s recruited to bring order to Las Vegas in the 1960s. This new job brings him face-to-face with Vincent Savino (Michael Chiklis), a ruthless Chicago gangster who has no plans to back down.

Jason O’Mara, Taylor Handley, and Carrie-Anne Moss are co-stars in the TV series.

Vegas will be airing opposite ABC’s Private Practice/em> and Parenthood on NBC. CBS has ordered 13 episodes of Vegas to begin.

Before you share your opinion below, here are some previews:

So, what do you think? Does Vegas look like a hit, a moderate success, or a candidate for quick cancellation? Will you tune in, DVR the show, or skip it altogether?

    “Vegas” is a great tv series that captures a time period that so many of us have not remembered or known. The actors are superb and the writing is outstanding! With so few shows having merit, CBS needs to keep this show in a good time slot! If I remember correctly, NCIS did not fare well when it initially was aired!

    I really like this show, Vegas, and everyone else I talk to, says the same. When Golden Boy came in and took it’s spot, I nearly gave up on channel 11. It upset me
    And Golden Boy stinks.

    I think it needs to be given a chance, unfortunately CBS has never been one to give much thought to this process. If it doesn’t make money for them and the sponsors right off the bat it’s toast. It’s a little quirky but it has great actors, with very good writers and the sets are to die for. It gives new life to same old stale crap they have on TV now days. I say bring it back before it’s too late.

    I love Vegas. Golden boy is not good. I hope they bring Vegas back, miss it. I planned for watching it weekly. Not much worth watching these days. That was.
