    That was a wasted headline since they preempted EVERYTHING and even “Wheel of Fortune” which was in the half hour after the news and before regular CBS programming.

    If it makes anyone feel better the episode of Vegas really is being shown on Global in Canada. It actually just ended for the west coast. Not that that means those LOL and DIMENSION are actually from said broadcast. It is just fun to notice what happens when there is a short-notice schedule change.

  • Chuck

    Vegas is the only show worth watching these days, so of course they want to cancel it.
