What happens in Vegas...gets canceled by NBC

after five seasons las vegas is no moreCan you recall last Friday's episode of NBC's Las Vegas, the one that was touted as the show's season finale? Well, the network made a small grammatical faux pas. You see, they really meant to say that it was the 'series-finale-because-we're -canceling-the-damn-show' finale instead. You could see where the confusion was.

Yep, you read right. Straight from the The One Known As Ausiello we hear that the casino drama is ending its run after five years on the air. It's not like they didn't try to keep the series afloat after anchor star James Caan left last season. Heck, they replaced him with a fairly stoic Tom Selleck as owner of the Montecito. However, rather than increasing the ratings, the change led to a double-digit ratings decline.

Course, it didn't help that the show was put into the broadcast network wasteland of 10 pm Friday night. I say 'broadcast network' because that night is usually gold for the cable networks (see recent ratings for Psych). I'm a bit sad that this show is leaving the network. While it was fluffy drama at most times, it was a change of pace from all of the serious shows that air on NBC. I guess they'll replace it with a game show or reality program. Sigh.

**** you NBC. Vegas was a great show and you canceled it like the bunch of morons that you are. I'm so sick of NBC canceling good shows and replacing them with reality crap and game shows. Jay Leno is all you have left NBC so have fun when you lose all of your viewers because you can't seem to figure out what GOOD television is.

I have had it with NBC and canceling my favorite shows. This is my fourth favorite show they canceled in as many years. Geez, thanks for nothing NBC. I should just stop watching NBC. It will save me from experiencing another cancellation.

This was the perfect show for Friday nights. After 5 long work days, you need something that can entertain and relax you without having to get tense and worryied. This is one of the BEST shows of its kind, and I am comparing it to other soap like shows over the past 20 years. Dropping this show is a big mistake. My hope is that a more inteligent network will pickup the show and see their ratings jump. NBC the only thing you have left is Jay Leno, for a year or so and then you should sell out.

Las Vegas was a great show and I can't beleive that NBC would take off the air. I was so upset when James Cann left but I grew to love Tom. I loved the new story lines since they were so different from before it was nice to laugh sometimes. NBC you can't take this show off the air all of the stars on this show are great and I look forward to Friday nights every week. I can't believe we wont see Delinda and Danny get married and have their baby, and Mike and Piper are a great match and I was looking forward to their story. NBC you are a bunch of Idiots you never get it right. For years you have been breaking my heart by removing my favorite shows from the lineup starting with My favorite Soap Opera(Another World) Years ago. Give this a second try you will make alot of fans very happy.
A very Dissappointed NBC Fan

Thanks for nothing.
