Hadn't heard of this one, either. Dennis Quaid versus Michael Chiklis in 1960's Las Vegas, with Carrie-Anne Moss along for the ride? I think I'd give that a shot. Looks more interesting to me than Elementary, as much as I like Lucy Liu.

It's hard not to get a "Justified" feeling after watching that. I consider that a good thing.

Interesting. I like the setup. Looks like a poor mans Justified crossed with Mad Men.

Anyone else been watching? I've really been loving it. It's really picking up towards the end of the season too.

Itll be interesting to see how the whole 'trying to kill Rizzo' thing works out

I love the show. Hope it gets the second season. At the local Clark County library, they've had a special event once a week this month, Mob Month. Ralph Lamb, is going to be there this Tuesday, to talk about how it was and being a consultant on the show, I expect it to be rather interesting. Too bad I work :-(

There's also the gossip factor. People seem to like seeing bad shit happen to other people on "reality" shows because it's supposed to somehow make us feel better about our own pathetic lives. Culture has taken a turn from building up heroes to tearing down villains.

The irony is that people aren't even bright enough to realize that all the reality shows are heavily produced, and if not exactly scripted, everything is planned-out and executed the way the production staff wants.

Even the "uplifting" reality shows are badly manipulative. See example: Undercover Boss

It's still up in the air right now but it isn't looking good. This is a great show. It is too bad that people just don't seem to want to watch it.

For whatever reason, CBS just can't seem to find a show that can pull in an audience in the 9pm slot. Last years show Unforgettable was a really good one too but got killed for the same reason.

Vegas has been delayed again after CBS's New Drama "Golden Boy", remains in the Tuesday slot. "Vegas" Moves to Friday, 9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT, Effective April 5.

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.

Got buried with work in April, finally got caught up today on all the eps since it moved to Fridays. Aside from the bad episode the week before last (culminating with the ridiculous wedding through the jailhouse door...) they've had a good season. Be sad to see it go (I think it's all but cancelled now, though still nothing official).

In unrelated news, other than being another CBS freshman drama mentioned in my original thread starter, I'm surprised how much I've liked Elementary.
