Vegas, the new show starring Dennis Quaid and Michael Chiklis, premieres on Tuesday night, Sept. 25th, at 10:00 pm on CBS. It has both NCIS and NCIS: LA as lead-ins and Tuesday night is one of CBS' most succesful nights, ratings wise, so this bodes well for this period piece set in 1960s Las Vegas. Quaid plays real-life Las Vegas Sheriff Ralph Lamb while Chiklis plays mob boss Vincent Savino- a fictiional character that has some traits of real life mobsters from that era
While I don't expect the show to strictly to history, I do hope that they get the layout of the Strip and Fremont Street right and I do hope they remember that people did live here and were raising their families here.
Guess we will all find out on September 25th.
In the meantime, here's a behind-the-scenes promo:
