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 Vegas TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

What, no Vegas tonight, this will not do. We are also in the 60 plus age group and find Vegas one of the most entertaining shows on TV. Every time we find a show we enjoy they cancel it. There are way to many reality shows on and if they want to give somebody the axe they can start there.

Please don’t cancel Vegas. They say the audience is to old and it is to expensive to make.
Only the British seem to be able to make period pieces and quality shows. Although cable is really good theses days. Maybe Vegas can move to cable.

The Good Guys, The Defenders, and now Vegas. If I like, cancel it.

The only show worth watching – great storylines – great acting. My husband and I both look forward to Tuesday at 10:00 PM. Please don’t cancel. My Dad just called me and asked if I knew why it wasn’t on tonight (he looks forward to it too). After some reading, I was shocked there was even a slight possibility of it being cancelled. Then again, I shouldn’t be because that’s what the networks do – cater to the young with all the trash TV. You don’t stand a chance with decent programming if you’re 50+. It’s a shame.

renew the show for a 2nd season. This show was great. I liked the show. Including seeing Dennis Quaid as the cowboy sheriff. Michael Chikilis, was great too, seeing him as the owner of the casino. This was the only best new show I liked. Renew the show for a 2nd season.
