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?

Vegas is a class show with a great cast, wonderful time period setting and great storyline. Why wouldn’t it be renewed? It would be a major blunder on the networks part. Replacing Vegas with ‘Golden Boy’? you have to be kidding me.

Please do not cancel Vegas!! My husband and I are baby boomers; we love this show and DVR it every week! I will have absolutely NO reason to watch CBS anymore if Vegas is taken off the air. In our opinion, it would be a HUGE mistake for CBS to cancel Vegas; it is a unique and interesting storyline.

We love Vegas, it’s such a nice departure from the typical Cop program that TV shows. It is a great show, well casted and scripted with an endless potential of development.

I LOVE Vegas, and can’t wait till the next week to see what’s going to happen. The cast is great, and the characters’ interactions is interesting, cute, believeable, and I think even better than the charisma of NCIS…please don’t cancel this show. Vegas & Revenge are the 2 most awesome series on TV now.

I was so disappointed when Vegas was replaced. PLEASE bring it back. The actors and story line are great. One I really enjoy as a Senior citizen watcher. So many of the shows don’t appeal to us, but this one did. Thanks
