[...There just doesnít seem to be anywhere near as much regular television programming about Vegas these days as there was in the past. Or if there is, then Iím just not finding it in my market...



History channel has(d) some fun shows based in Las Vegas:
Pawn Stars
Counting Cars
American Restoration

There were some other ones about a house flipper, but I lost interest quickly.

No one misses the late 70's show, "Vega$" with Robert Urich as private investigator "Dan Tanna"? C'mon, he would park his convertible T-bird in his office!

I love Flipping Vegas and am pissed my cable package doesn't include that channel. After seeing how they fix stuff on the super cheap, I don't know why anyone would buy anything from them.

I'm in no way touting it, saying it's good or worth watching, I'm just adding to the Vegas TV shows list.

The Real World has a few they did in Vegas. One at the Palms and one at the old Gold Spike.

There was a "reality show" about a tattoo shop in Vegas a number of years ago. I went there once and got a tattoo. The guy who did it was super nice and down to earth. I don't think he put up with the TV show B.S. that was going on around him, because the few times I watched the show he was barely on it.

"I Bet You" - not every show was set in Las Vegas but I believe most were.

There was a show similar to NBC's Las Vegas on CBS in early 1992 called Hearts are Wild; it was set at Caesar's Palace, and lasted 10 weeks. The one episode I remember involved a high roller who wanted a comped room for his son; meanwhile, a couple with the same last name were on their honeymoon, and ended up with the room (they drove out just as the high roller's son drove in). The only other thing I remember about it was, the theme song was (I think) Kenny Rogers doing "Viva Las Vegas." (No, I am not confusing this with Father of the Pride, which had John Goodman sing it.)

For a show that was supposed to be "real", the set ups were so fake, I just couldn't suspend disbelief.

I've never seen the show, but the people who do "Tanked" are based in Vegas. I imagine some of it has to be filmed here.

I'm thinking the show "Airline" that followed Southwest operations covered Vegas.
Golden Nugget and Green Valley Ranch have both had the fly on the wall treatment.
Location only, American Ninja Warrior.
Don't forget, "FREE" is a four letter word.

Isn't there, or wasn't there a CSI based in Vegas? Never seen any of them.
