Vegas has been officially canceled by CBS after a single season.

    Like GB, this is no surprise at all, but given the success of every period show besides Mad Men, I’m still surprised they even picked this one up.

    cbs you suck vegas very good show look up the history of vegas very true show.

  • JacobYates

    Oh well. I enjoyed it but I did see it coming. Hope it doesn’t end on a cliffhanger tonight.

  • The End


    We’l all have to pretend to be shocked that Once Upon a Time has been picked up.

  • PurpleDrazi

    So now Chiklis and Kathy Bates can form their very own club of people who said TVBTN was full of crap and then promptly got canceled.

    I watched it mostly for Sarah Jones and Aimee Garcia!

    I watched it mostly for Sarah Jones and Aimee Garcia! And I actually liked it – old world Vegas was fun.

    Did he say that over this mess or over his superhero show?

    I think you can add Brook Shields to that list.

  • David

    Here’s an idea – let’s have a show with 2 famous & charismatic actors, then KEEP THEM APART FOR THE ENTIRE SEASON. People tuned in to see DQ & Chiklis face off, but they hardly had any screen time together. Stupid stupid stupid. Even more puzzling consider the 2 are exec producers. They’ve no one to blame but themselves.

    long live the good wife!

    Disappointed, but not surprised, I feel bad for Michael Chiklis, who I think is an amazing actor, he hasn’t been able to catch a break since the end of The Shield (brilliant series). I am getting to the point that I am almost afraid to get involved in a scripted show these days in case it gets cancelled!! Very soon all that will be on is c**p reality shows.

    @Anthony Parello

    Did he say that over this mess or over his superhero show?

    He was talking about Vegas. He did an interview a few months ago talking about the show’s move to Friday and, although he didn’t mention TVBTN specifically, he talked about people who “liked to pretend they were TV producers but didn’t know what they were talking about.” Then he went on to say that TV is changing and Demo numbers aren’t important anymore.

    I like Michael Chiklis but dude…you don’t poke the bear!

  • TSC’s Revenge

    Not entirely unexpected; however, it really amazes me how the networks produce these retro dramas and then seem to be totally surprised when they don’t do well in the demo group. Geez, get a clue guys!

  • dustin johnston

    vegas is a good show. that was interesting and entertaining. Vegas showed moral judgment generally prevails . i guess they should have added some gay people and some hard narcotic users to it, and some senseless killing of random people for no reason. so it would entertain this modern crowd…. just sad if you ask me what sells on tv these days.

  • BigBrotherFan

    Dammit! I really like Sarah Jones she is beyond hot! I hope she finds new work! I think she be excellent on REVENGE!

  • RLH

    Dang it!!! Such a good show!!

  • cbs sucks

  • thesnowleopard

    Sad but not at all a surprise.

  • eric

  • Sharon from NJ

    Can’t believe it….. Vegas cancelled?!?!?! CBS is making a huge HUGE mistake. Years ago, they had an incredible
    lineup of shows. Hopefully another network will pick “Vegas” up. This is a great show, interesting characters, great cast (with some nostalgia thrown in for us Baby Boomers.) This is an original, well done drama with alot of heart. Please rethink….. it deserves another season to build the following
    it deserves. My husband will be so upset!
