'Vegas' moved to Fridays by CBS, replaced by 'Golden Boy'

By
Dennis Quaid drama Vegas is being moved to Fridays by CBS.

The '60s-set series previously aired on Tuesday nights at 10/9c, but that slot will now be filled by new episodes of cop show Golden Boy starring English actor Theo James.

The timeslot shift will take effect from April 5, with Vegas - which also stars Michael Chiklis - now airing at 9/8c on Friday nights.

Golden Boy premiered on CBS on February 26, pulling in 10.5m viewers with 1.8m in the key 18-49 demographic.

The show's second episode dipped to 9.3m (1.6m) - by comparison, the last Vegas episode to be aired pulled in a greater total number of viewers (9.7m) but fewer in the demo (1.5m).

Vegas star Chiklis - who plays mobster Vincent Savino - recently insisted that the series will not be cancelled, despite its soft ratings.

"Vegas is a powerful show with a huge audience that will continue to grow over time," the actor wrote on Twitter last month.

Sky Atlantic airs Vegas on Thursdays at 10pm, while Golden Boy is yet to secure a UK broadcaster.
