via press release:

10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT TIME PERIOD


An Original "Golden Boy" Will Air This Friday as Previously Scheduled


"Vegas" Moves to Friday, 9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT, Effective April 5

GOLDEN BOY, CBS's new drama about the meteoric rise of an ambitious cop who becomes the youngest police commissioner in the history of New York City, will remain on Tuesdays (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT), after two special previews in the time period.


CBS previously announced that GOLDEN BOY would move to Friday (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) after the preview broadcasts on Feb. 26 and March 3. An original episode of GOLDEN BOY will still air this first Friday (March 8) at 9:00 PM, ET/PT as planned.


CBS will give the freshman drama VEGAS a look in a new time period, moving it to Friday (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) beginning April 5, following the Network's coverage of the NCAA Men's Basketball tournament.


In its two Tuesday broadcasts, GOLDEN BOY is winning its time period in viewers and key demographics, averaging 9.98 million viewers, 2.6/07 in adults 25-54 and 1.7/05 in adults 18-49.


GOLDEN BOY stars Theo James, Chi McBride, Kevin Alejandro, Bonnie Somerville, Holt McCallany and Stella Maeve. Greg Berlanti and Emmy Award winner Nicholas Wootton are executive producers for Warner Bros. Television.


VEGAS stars Dennis Quaid, Michael Chiklis, Carrie-Anne Moss, Jason O'Mara, Taylor Handley and Sarah Jones. Greg Walker, Nicholas Pileggi, Cathy Konrad, Arthur Sarkissian and James Mangold are executive producers for CBS Television Studios.

    @John A,

    saw Micheal Chiklis tweet a while ago that Vegas will be renewed for sure.

    I’m reminded of Brook Shields and Lipstick Mafia…

  • David Howell

    This can only save CSI NY. Basically, if other shows stink out the slot as badly as or worse than CSI NY, CBS renews the show that’s in syndication.

    And doing it effective post-NCAA so Golden Boy gets a Friday airing is a cute move because CBS get to see how *both* shows do in the slot!

  • MichaelChickless

    I’m curious to see how Golden Boy does this Friday (as well as how Vegas does Fridays in April).

  • Andrea


    I love Deadline, but one thing they aren’t good about is correctly analyzing tv results. Everyone knows that tvbythenumbers.com is the premier site for this!

  • yusei Fudo

    ha ha serves Vegas right LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Max Vrany

    Watch them reverse the reversal once Golden Boy does well on Friday.

    As for Vegas, it’s still dead.

  • Andrea

    John A,

    Almost all cast/crew tweet that they believe their show will be renewed, whether it will be or not!

  • The End


    I have a weird sense of humor lol. Thought that was the best way to describe the show and avoid angering some of the fans :)

    I actually think it’s a shame about Vegas, It’s not a bad show, I watched a few episodes and lost interest but certainly it wasn’t certain cancelation awful despite what the ratings suggest. Some shows just aren’t meant to be I’m afraid.

    @David Howell
    @This can only save CSI NY

    In all honesty, that wouldn’t surprise me.

  • Max Vrany

    @Holly, you can’t forget Kathy Bates, Bill D’Elia, and Harry’s Law!

  • Andrea

    Also wondering what was the last drama CBS renewed (not including Unforgettable).

  • Ultima

    I really don’t know what this means. Vegas is not that condemned, after all ? Golden Boy on Tuesdays ? It’s really weird because its ratings are really bad after two episodes…

    The ratings are bad, but still better than Vegas – which had a 1.5 for each of its previous two episodes.

    Vegas is dead. Golden Boy is dead as well, but CBS feels leaving it on Tuesdays will get better numbers overall for the network.

    @Max Vrany
    @Holly, you can’t forget Kathy Bates, Bill D’Elia, and Harry’s Law!

    I know that wasn’t aimed at me but I found that absolutely hilarious at the time. They were being so ridiculous and although I had nothing against Harry’s Law, when some websites were falsely reporting the show had been renewed, I made the effort to check and confirm the show was still dead.

  • Mary

    I think this bodes well for Golden Boy. Hopefully, the numbers improve since I like the show and want it to be renewed.

    I do not think this bodes well for Vegas at all. To me it seems like they’re puutting Vegas out to pasture on Friday to die.

  • Ultima

    Also wondering what was the last drama CBS renewed (not including Unforgettable)

    Midseason? The Unit in 2006.

    Tuesday 10pm? The Good Wife.

    “CBS is trying to find out if there is a show that will do better on Fridays at 9 p.m. They may end up staying with CSI:NY if VEGAS and GOLDEN BOY do not do well.”

    Complete nonsense.

    This move is 100% to determine if Golden Boy is save able. I doubt it, but it costs CBS nothing to try.

  • BigBrotherFan

    GOLDEN BOY is not gonna catch on. Promise.


    Oh, well..She’s in good company with MAGGIE Q.

  • Andrea


    Thanks. If CBS doesn’t renew a drama this season, it will have been four seasons since it landed a hit drama. That can’t be good!

  • Hubert R. Wentland

    I actually felt that GB could be healthy on Friday. because its Tuesday ratings are obviously awful.

  • DW

    this has as much chance of bringing back CSI NY as it does of having jake and the fatman back. GB is holding steady so they will keep it there how it does vegas has been sent to hospice of television renewal.

    If CBS doesn’t renew a drama this season, it will have been four seasons since it landed a hit drama.

    Person of Interest?

    And they will renew Elementary this year, just not Vegas.
