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?

PLEASE PLEASE keep Vegas on the line up for next season. My husband and I and even our teen daughter watch this show. With all the crap shows on tv it’s nice to have a great exciting show to look forward to. And other that that show we don’t watch any other show on your channel because Vegas is a good one the others with the exception of Big Bang Theory are poor quality.

I would love to see Vegas renewed. It is a terrific series with a great cast. I never miss it, and love seeing all the old cars, clothes, etc. from 1960. It is a really good show and deserves to have another season.

Please keep Vegas on the air. It is one of our go to shows of the week. Every week seems to get better, The characters seem to get more complex. The Lamb’s remind me of the Regans on Blue Bloods, full of character and grit to do the right things- something rare today.The period setting and historical aspects are facinatng. LOve it. Keep it. Please.

CBS: PLEASE, PLEASE RENEW VEGAS!!! It started out a little slow but has gotten increasingly better with each episode. The last 10 or so have been phenomenal!! The story line is very realistic and the acting is superb! I’ve asked so many people about Vegas and they haven’t even heard of it – if you do more advertising, e.g. on other TV stations and popular radio stations, I’m sure the audience will expand! PLEASE GIVE IT ONE MORE SEASON!!

I LOVE this show!! So refreshing to see a really unique scripted show with GREAT actors! I’m so sick of so-called “reality” crap I could scream! This show is ALWAYS a must see every week! PLEASE KEEP IT COMING!

Vegas has got to be one of the most improved shows of the season.
Awesome writing & acting. Please give it a chance. Don’t forget…Seinfeld was pretty lame the first couple of seasons and look what happened to that show because someone with a brain gave it a chance. Please do the right thing and keep “Vegas” for the people who are fed up hearing about freakin’ “Honey Boo-Boo”.
