NBC's "Las Vegas" Cancelled
NBC keeps swinging the axe. After 5 seasons, Montecito is closing down for good. Is "Friday Night Lights" next on the chopping block?
The show originally aired on Monday nights, but midway through season 3 (in early 2006) NBC successfully moved the series to lower-rated Fridays.
Last summer James Caan, one of the original cast members, left the casino-centered drama. The studio replaced him with Tom Selleck.
Despite the writers' strike, the cast and crew managed to film as many as 19 out of 22 episodes ordered.
This season the ratings went down 8% (from 9.02 million the show averaged in its 4th season to the current average of 8.29 million).
"Las Vegas" has already ended its run with a 2-hour episode last Friday.
