    I did not watch this show, so I don’t mind it being canceled, but I looked at the viewership numbers before they moved it to Friday, it wasn’t that bad, so I wonder why CBS moved it to Friday, which will certainly have negative impact on the viewership for the show, unless they never intended to renew the show in the first place, or CBS would have kept it on Tuesday to see how things goes.

    Here is a major problem that will be Unprecedented AND WILL CHANGE THE LANDSCAPE OF TELEVISION FOREVER !!!!. By networks giving well written, well produced, very well acted and directed shows only a year(Like VEGAS for a prime example), NO MATTER WHAT SHOW ANY NETWORK WILL PUT ON THE AIR FROM THIS POINT ON WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES BECAUSE NO ONE WILL WANT TO WATCH A SHOW AFTER GETTING INVOLVED WITH SOMETHING FROM THE FEAR THAT IT WILL BE CANCELLED…..THIS IS A PLAIN AND SIMPLE FACT !!! Networks like CBS will bury themselves in the grave. Let ask you folks and be honest. Would you start a new show next year based on these facts. I wouldn’t. From this point on I will only watch existing shows until their time is up and if there is a new show that looks like it might do well after 2 seasons in, I then will go rent the DVD and watch it from there. This is where the new landscape of television will start, because if every one follows this same path then you come to a paradox. The Paradox you ask?.. If everyone follows this path then there will be NO ONE TO WATCH THE SHOW TO ACTUALLY GET TO THIS POINT. Thus the paradox !! The past few years I have been delving away from television show because of this exact reason. I now prefer to watch a good movie than get wrapped up in a show that will be more than likely canceled, and I know many many people that are giving up on television shows for this very reason and sticking with just watching a movie instaed. NETWORKS BETTER WAKE UP AND SEE THIS WRITTING ON THE WALL AND GIVE NEWER SHOWS MORE THAN JUST A YEAR. If in the second season after a few episodes the show still doesen’t have the numbers then pull the plug…but now days just one season isn’t long enough for involved shows like VEGAS…..PERIOD !!!!!!!!!

    I’m shocked, after all the show was so realistic. I mean who knew there were satellite dishes on roofs in Las Vegas in the Sixties.

  • Bradley

    I love the cast. I love the show. Writing is excellent. Not much good television show out there. Not a fan of reality junk on tv. Sad to hear the bad news that “Vegas” has been cancelled. Really disappointed with CBS decision.

  • majorpain

    Very disappointed! I hate most of network TV reality shows. This was a really great show and should have been given a chance. Please cable come to the rescue.

  • Sherry

    I am sick to death of decent shows being cancelled and replaced with brainless so-called reality shows (there’s nothing real about any of them). I suppose I should be more surprised that shows like Criminal Minds and Law and Order SVU are still around. Here’s hoping for Hannibal…

  • Wanda

    Jason O’Mara … I never bought into the Jason O’Mara Curse thing but … geez. Maybe there is something to it after all.

  • J. C.

    Excellent show that I will miss. The characters were all very complicated people, making the show extremely watchable. I don’t see ratings news very often, so this move did surprise me. Maybe some other network will pick it up, but I doubt it. I also thought moving to Fridays before Blue Bloods was a move to make a good offering of quality back-to-back shows. Fridays are not the best night for ratings, but so many DVRs out there make the day of the week much less relevant than it used to be. RIP Ralph, Vince, Jack, Mia, Katherine, Dixon, and all the others.

    CBS: You Idiots!
    Seeing the show set in the 60’s and same ”style like” acting like the old shows ”Rockford Files” for example. I don’t know about anyone else on this site but in the 70’s we had Rockford Files: Jame Garner, Joe Forrester: Lloyd Bridges: Kojack: Telli Savales…anyway these shows are now on ”Me TV” and as current shows are cancelled I find myself turning to this ”Me TV” channel to get my fix of the ”good ole days”.
    Leave some shows for us 50+ people. There are way too many reality shows.
    Reconsider and give ”VEGAS”another time slot!

    I loved the show. Sad it will not be back

  • Ron

    Once again, a great period drama piece with a little bit of brains is being
    dumped to make room for more garbage. One more reason not to watch CBS (as if Letterman was not enough).

  • Harriet

    Enjoyed the program. aught to get with what CBS produces. Didn’t give it much time on Friday night. Don’t watch much on CBS anyway.

  • Harriet

    Should have said, ABC produces

  • Johnnym

    Bad choice . Again a network doesn’t give a chance for a show to develop its characters and story lines.

  • Lexie Torres

    I am so SAD to hear this. I love the show and Jason O’Mara and the girl who played Mia was awesome. Dennis Quaid over acted his role and his faces were stupid looking, but Michael Chiklis is an awesome actor. Please tell Dennis to take the over top faces out of the equation and shop the show on cable like USA where characters are welcomed!

  • Carole

    Sorry to see it go! Love period pieces and this was well done, I thought! Good finale!

  • Lincoln Bond

    This was a great little show that could have been even better. I am not surprised but still very disappointed. Gonna miss the cool cars every week. Wonder if Lamb’s Dodge Power Wagon will be up for sale any time soon?
