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?

I really like the show. It is nice to not have all the fancy machines used to solve crimes, just serious old fashioned shoe leather. Vegas was a small town when Ralph started out, and since I knew him and my husband worked for him I watch with a double interest for the stories I have heard, and ones that were tuned up for TV.

Dennis Quaid and Michael Chiklis do a great job.

Keep the show, it has a larger following than most people realize – we have folks over for a Vegas party because they like to watch at our house and hear the other stories too!!

I enjoy watching Vegas on CBS every week. It’s far better than it’s current replacement Golden Boy which seems to be a rip off of so many other cop show but especially Blue Bloods. When I watch Golden Boy I feel like I’m watching the Tom Selleck’s character in Blue Bloods grow up- only Tom Selleck does a heck of a lot better job. Vegas has 2 points going for it 1) it has good actors, 2) there’s a story plot 3) it reveals a bit of the truth of how the city of Vegas started and how it was in the 1960s. And yes, my background is law enforcement, and history is one of my favorite subjects, and now I’m a teacher. Besides I’m old enough to actually have lived through the 60s – however it was Tampa I grew up near- which actually has had it’s own history with the mafia.
So I say keep Vegas and teach our younger generation some history without them realizing it.
