The new drama has received a 'back nine' pick-up from the network.
October 23, 2012
CBS announced today that freshman drama Vegas has been picked up for a full season. The network has ordered the back nine episodes to top up the count to 22.
The series, which follows a fourth-generation rancher tasked with restoring order to Las Vegas in the 1960s, has so far aired three episodes since premiering in late September.

A big mistake, it was growing viewers with each new episode.
Then the next thing CBS did that made zero sense was the cancellation of Vegas. That show had interesting plots, candor, was gaining in popularity among viewership and the story lines were improving weekly. The show would have been another NCIS. But oh no, that would make sense, so lets cancel a good strong show, replace it with another reality show whose genre has been dead a long time. Vegas had one of the best casts on TV since Bonanza. The Characters were growing in to their own and the show as gaining in it's popularity. So Hey says, CBS, "We have a great show here in Vegas, good Cast, good viewership and it's one of the most entertaining shows on the Tube, so hey why don't we cancel it. Then we will be free to develop shows that are so bad, they couldn't sell a can of three year old cat Food.
CBS, you people have become idiots, once the best network for the best shows and best entertainment now lies somewhere near water polo and putt putt golf in viewers and ads.
Oh hey, I have a solution CBS, why don't we viewers cancel you. Or if you don't like that choice, why don't you cancel CSI, Blue Bloods, Elementay, Person of Interest, oh the granddaddy of them all, 60 minutes. Why not cancel mike and molly, two and a half men(which should have been dropped 2 years ago) Another one of those brilliant moves by CBS.
You wanna keep making money CBS Guys? Bring back Vega, sign them up for a 3 year contract, I guarantee you CBS, you viewers won't leave then, Vegas will continue to grow and become something par with NCIS. But hey, I don't have to watch you at all. I can at any time tune in to Barney and be as happy as I would be watching you do stupid things like cancelling great shows like Vegas and CSI Miami. Undoubtedly you must be getting your counsel from Michael Moore or you are channeling all the former CBS leadership who didn't have the sense to pour water out of their shoes before they put them on. In other words CBS, I had rather watch paint dry than to continue putting up with the idiotic decisions you are making now. Bring back Miami and Vegas and your market share will regain it's once upon a time of total dominance. As it stands right now NBC will with their dancing or talent or old reruns will take over again.
Oh did I say, why not go ahead and cancel CSI and NCIS? you might as well........................
We pay a small fortune for cable, only to have limited choices as to what we can or will watch. Who is benefitting from "reality" shows? The Sponsors? Fie on you!
