There was a Caesars 24/7 show taped at Caesars Palace for a very short time.



Good memory, it was only on for like 2 episodes.

And while it isn't Vegas who can forget "Viva Laughlin"?



It lasted 2 episodes before ABC cancelled it in
2007. Here's a 2 min clip worth watching
because it has Hugh Jackman singing a
solo song.

"We take your money and then give it back, with any profit split with you 50/50". Almost did a spit take with that. That's not even a gambling scam, thats just a straight up no common sense scam.
Assume the worst, believe no one, and make your move only when you are certain that you are unbeatable or have, at worst, exceptionally good odds in your favor.

Man vs Vegas, which was about a young guy who had lost a bunch of money in Vegas and was trying to win it back. He would place big bets for other folks at the tables to share the wealth.



This was kind of entertaining but pointless.
He has no system or strategy for winning,
the outcome is inevitable.

I liked Lucky, from a few years ago.
Down and out former WSOP winner struggling in Downtown Vegas.

Let's not forget the last couple of seasons of Crime Story, about a mob controlled casino on Fremont St.
The one season had what had to be the most explosive cliffhanger in television history.

*Puts on slightly geekier glasses*
Las Vegas (2003) was a breakthrough in television, one that has not been repeated since.
Not because of the setting, writing, cast or special effects.
As far as I'm aware, Las Vegas is the only scripted TV show in which a celebrity (Jean-Claude Van Damme) guest starred as himself and died.

Las Vegas (2003)



Man, I looooved that show. So flashy and glamorous, tons of beautiful woman, and cool gambling story lines.

Should probably add Showtime's Gigolos to the list. Its a reality series that follows five male escorts in Las Vegas, both on the job and in their down-time. The part that amazes me is all the women who agree to be filmed having sex with these guys and then be interviewed afterwards. Not sure if its been renewed for a seventh season.

Haha yes. That show is fascinating.
The geniuses who thought HRC was running a child sex ring out of the basement of a pizza shop just can't connect the dots on all this trump-Russia stuff....
