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?

Seems like every time CBS comes up with a GOOD TV series they cancel it after one season.
Vegas is a good series and deserves another season. No let me rephrase that. We the viewer deserves another season of Vegas.
I get so frustrated with Hollywood.

I’ve been shocked to hear that they’re thinking of cancelling Vegas. I wish I’d known sooner I would have been bombarding them with emails. This is a great show when I really look forward to every week. I sent an email to CBS. I wish that people would do that to … maybe they (CBS) will change their mind.

Vegas should be renewed. I am so tired of all these reality shows on TV. I know they are cheaper to produce, but quit insulting my intelligence. Vegas has good stories and superb actors. It will pay off in the end if this show is renewed.

This is one of the few shows we really look forward to watching. Please leave it on.

The first season was excellent. PLEASE DO NOT cancel this show. There are so few decent shows on now it’s hard to find anything worth watching. I can’t stand the reality shows or the so called talent search shows and shows like Criminal Minds are so grafic they’re disgusting and I won’t watch them. I guess I must be in the wrong demografic because a lot of my favorite shows get cancelled.

Vegas is a great show. Please keep in on. If you need to cancel something, cancel some mindless show like Big Bang Theory or Mike and Molly.

My husband and I love Vegas. Please don’t cancel it. I’m so tired of CBS canceling good shows. We loved unforgettable as well.. But they keep the boring Csi and NCIS crime shows. I hope they make the right decision and keep Vegas…. Otherwise I’m giving up on CBS, why bother watching any of their shows if they just keep canceling them.

Please don’t cancel Vegas!!! My family of four love this show.
