About VEGAS:

Dennis Quaid and Michael Chiklis star in VEGAS, a drama inspired by the true story of former Las Vegas Sheriff Ralph Lamb, a fourth-generation rancher tasked with bringing order to Las Vegas in the 1960s, a gambling and entertainment mecca emerging from the tumbleweeds. Ralph Lamb wants to be left in peace to run his ranch, but Las Vegas is now swelling with outsiders and corruption which are intruding on his simple life. Recalling Lamb's command as a military police officer during World War II, the Mayor appeals to his sense of duty to look into a murder of a casino worker – and so begins Lamb’s clash with Vincent Savino, a ruthless Chicago gangster who plans to make Vegas his own. Assisting Lamb in keeping law and order are his two deputies: his diplomatic, even-keeled brother, Jack, and his charming but impulsive son, Dixon. Ambitious Assistant District Attorney Katherine O'Connell, who grew up on the ranch next to the Lambs, also lends a hand in preserving justice. In VEGAS, two powerful men – Lamb and Savino – are engaged in a fierce battle for control of the budding oasis, and for both of them, folding is not an option.

    Why does every f-uck-ing thing today have to be on an app of some kind? You know, some genious invented this thing called “television” about 60-70 years ago (which will NEVER be improved upon imo) and for some reason today it’s not “cool” to run a program on it — everything has to be viewed on a phone or computer. If you don’t have access to a TV at the momment I can see — if not — give me the TV ANYTIME!

    Sweet screamin’ Jesus, doth thou protest too much or what?

    On a marginally different note, I, for one, am sick of trying to watch a show and see a bunch of tweets and stuff fill the screen. Maybe it’s the growing pains of a new medium or something but I’d rather just watch the story that was filmed and produced than “interact” with it (that is, until I get my holographic tv!).

    I believe at a this point in time when network television is fighting for ratings with cable, that they shouldn’t be throwing out potentional viewers by using technology. Number 1 it’s not even counted in the ratings or by advertisters and Number 2 networks are losing Live viewers and DVR viewers because of online viewing and phone viewing. If they want ratings then encourage people to watch LIVE or DVR the show.

    Dumb…dumb, and did i say Dumb? CBS Your So Lame!

    I’m confused as to why people are upset about this. I get being annoyed at those stupid twitter tags on the screen, but not this. It’s just a set visit. It won’t make any difference on what they air and it won’t give the people that go any special insight. It won’t affect anyone else’s viewing or enjoyment of the show. It’s just free advertising and a little “look, we can be young” PR for CBS.

    It would be nice to be able to turn off all that clutter that appears during a program.
