 PTC Summary:

Vegas

(CBS/drama)

10:00 p.m. (ET) Tuesday

Production Companies: CBS Television
Producers: James Mangold, Cathy Konrad, Nicholas Pileggi

In the early 1960s, as Las Vegas is moving from a ranching economy to a major resort town, tough rancher Ralph Lamb is drafted by the mayor to keep law and order as the new sheriff. Aided by his calm brother Jack and his wild, womanizing son Dixon, the new sheriffs are also helped by Ralph’s old flame, assistant district attorney Katherine O’Connell. Soon, the new police are at odds with Vincent Savino, a top mob boss is making his move to dominate the Vegas strip.

Violence is a major concern on Vegas. The first episodes showed individuals being tortured and graphically beaten by mobsters, several individuals being shot and killed, dead bodies of murder victims, and several more fistfights and implications of violence. Language included “bitch,” “damn,” “bastard,” “ass,” and “hell.” Sex included brief scenes of chorus girls in skimpy outfits and a man having sex with a prostitute.

Vegas is not recommended for viewers under age 18.
