    Las Vegas: NBC Cancels Long-Running Series

    TVGuide.com reported that NBC has cancelled Las Vegas after five seasons on the air.

    Las Vegas debuted on September 22, 2003 and was touted as actor James Caan’s first series regular role on television. The Academy Award-nominated actor was cast as the Montecito casino’s Head of Security, ‘Big Ed’ Deline. Others in the cast have included Nikki Cox, Josh Duhamel, James Lesure, Vanessa Marcil, Molly Sims, and Marsha Thomason.

    Caan left the series last year to return to his movie career and Cox was cut from the show in a cost-cutting move. Caan was replaced by Tom Selleck and it was hoped that the addition of the veteran TV actor would help revitalize the series. It didn’t and, coupled with the series’ move to Friday nights, the ratings dropped significantly.

    Last year, Las Vegas was one of the earliest NBC shows to get a renewal notice. What a difference a year can make.

    NBC opted not to renew Las Vegas for season six.

    NBC should not have cut Las Vegas! It was a great show and I have missed it. The fans should have at least gotten a final episode that was not such a cliff hanger!!! The Cast was awesome even with the changes. The shows on NBC now are not nearly as interesting as this show!! Please bring the show back or at least give us a proper ending!
