NOOOOOOO!!! They can’t do this. It’s unjust. It’s unfair. It’s, it’s, it’s an outright abomination.
I just opened up my e-mail to find my inbox overflowing with messages from loyal readers who are outraged that NBC has canceled Las Vegas. I feel you, Tubers. I don’t think there exists a strong enough adjective to describe my anger and indignation. Let’s just say that “pissed off” doesn’t even begin to cover it.
Las Vegas is one of those shows I look forward to watching every week. It’s not complicated or emotionally taxing. It’s just like the city itself: FUN.
Yes, I understand it’s a ratings game, and the show hasn’t reached high numbers this season, but it’s on Friday night. It’s not exactly a night when many people are home watching television.
The real tragedy in this decision is that for five long years, fans have loyally watched this show and won’t get any kind of closure. Last week’s two-hour season finale, that was full of cliffhangers, is the last new episode you’ll see, if NBC has its way.
Will Delinda have the baby? Will Cooper retain the casino? Will Casey be alive? We’ll never know, if the show doesn’t return at least for an episode or two to wrap up the loose ends. At least we got to see Sam finally admit that she still loves Casey. I guess that’s something.
For those of you who refuse to take this news passively, I encourage you to get on board with the fan campaign to save the show. Let’s hope it has Jericho-style results.
For details on what you can do, head over to Las Vegas the Series to join the masses. (Thanks to Allison for letting me know.) Make me proud, Tubers.
