    First across the board at ten. Definitely makes sense to cancel right away.

  • RandyL

    Well, maybe Vegas will be renewed for summer 2014 after Unforgettable is finally cancelled.

  • Drew

    I think Vegas is a very good show. I prefer it to NCIS Los Angeles. Anymore I hate to get invested in a new show because it gets cancelled after one season. I didn’t start watching NCIS until season 6. If Vegas is cancelled I am done with new shows until they have been on a few years.

    Drew, I totally agree with you. I rarely if ever watch new network shows for the reason you mentioned. Why invest in watching a show if it’s just going to get cancelled. Only reason I started watching Vegas was because of Michael Chiklis, especially after he acted on The Shield and now seeing him act as a bad guy. I hope Vegas continues to do well.
