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?

I am really disappointed that Vegas has been cancelled. Great acting, great characters, love the early ’60s setting. This is one of the few shows I looked forward to watching. I can only hope another network picks it up.

This is one of our favorite shows…I am so tired of getting good shows cancelled. This show was just getting interesting enough to make us followers every episode..we had it set on auto record if we could not watch it right the regular playtime…Extremely unhappy with these cat and mouse cancellations. Golden Boy another example…?

Vegas is a great story line. My whole family has enjoyed it and were disappointed to learn of it being canceled. Being switched to a different night caused a little bit of confusion with viewers and I am guessing but I think this is why there was a drop in viewers. We would love to see it brought back for more seasons.

I love the Vegas show. All the actors are playing their characters excellently, the story and time it’s set in makes it extremely entertaining. I believe some network will pick it up for sure!
