Compared to Unforgettable’s series debut a year earlier, CBS was down by 14% in the demo (vs a 2.9 rating) and down by 4% in viewers (vs 14.09 million). While the viewership is very impressive, the demo is less so and CBS has cancelled many series for low demo numbers.


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?

Love this show, great talent, gets better each week, love the characters and how we get to know them better each week. This show needs to be brought back for a second season. CBC not just 19 to 49 year olds watch Tv. 11 million viewers ought to mean somenthing.

i think that when there rating a tv series they should think about the people over 49 years of age .the baby boomers are avery large group of people that spend alot of money. it may be food for thought for the advertisers. we don’t seem to be considered when it comes to ratings for tv shows . maybe we should give the same thought when buying the products they sell.

The 1st season of NCIS ratings put it on the cancel block, but after the summer reruns they found more audience, Vegas will too if CBS has the same faith.
