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?

In the first season of any TV show the actor’s are still getting into character, in the second half of season one of Vegas the actor’s know their character, this show has good writing, directing, lighting and casting. The people involved in this show know the rules of dimensional contrast in all levels of production. The recent episode Unfinished Business was excellent, a lot of work has gone into the end of season one of this show to simply be canceled because there’s not enough viewer’s under the age of fifty.
I’m looking forward to season two to see if Carrie Ann Moss comes back fightin’ mad as can be, you don’t create a cliff hanger episode for a show that’s not coming back.

why do they cancel the good shows for garbage like all this reality stuff. I sure hope they reconsider, the over 49 people have money and spend it

Montekat May 5, 2013 at 12:14 pm

I agree completely. I get very angry that people over 49 are completely disregarded.

I do not like reality shows. I want real drama. Vegas is very entertaining, and it will be a terrible shame if it is not renewed.

Our population is aging, and older people DO spend money.

Keep Vegas and Golden Boy

Renew Vegas and The Golden Boy.

Reply

john scheidt May 4, 2013 at 7:59 pm

If CBS cancels Vegas and Golden boy they must want to become the new NBC. All of the so called reality show are nothing but crap. As we know the almighty dollar rules.

How can an extremly lame show like NCIS- la survive
When a great show like Vegas be cancelled.
Hope Netflix or Hulu pick it up if CBS isn’t smart enough
To keep it.
