Vegas: CBS Trims Episode Order, Will There Be More?

While CBS has increased their order for episodes of Elementary, the network has decided to cut the episode order for Vegas from 22 to 21 installments.

Starring Dennis Quaid and Michael Chiklis, Vegas debuted to a 2.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 14.85 million viewers. Considering the star power and promotion behind the series, that was a disappointment. For the next two weeks, the numbers seemed to stabilize at a 2.0 demo rating and roughly 12 million viewers.

On October 23rd, CBS ordered a full season of episodes for both Vegas and Elementary. That night, Vegas dropped 20%, to a 1.6 rating. The next week popped up to a 1.7 and this week’s went back down, to a 1.6 rating.

While the ratings have not been very good, CBS is apparently planning on sticking with Vegas for the rest of the season. If the numbers fall any further, it’ll be interesting to see if they cut any more episodes.

What do you think? Do you like the Vegas TV series? Do you think the ratings will come back up?

    I love the show and also the show with tom selleck. Seems everytime a show about vegas is put on tv it gets cancelled. I really like the current vegas because the time period of the show was when I was a little girl and shows the automobiles and the time period clothing makes you take a moment to remember the times. Hope the rating improve so the show continues..

    Was slow going at the beginning but really getting into it now, want to see what will
    happen next. Grew up with all the music, cars & clothing styles it’s really nice to see people dressing like this. It’s about time that there’s something decent to watch.

    Vegas is one of the best series that I have ever seen. Please give this show a chance. Good TV is hard to find these days; don’t further ruin it by cancelling a great series.
