    Dr. Vegas

    I don't know about anyone else - but I'm really looking forward to this show.
    Seems like perfect casting with Rob Lowe as charming professional, and Joe Pantoliano as a cheesy casino manager.

    Hoping it is as good as I expect it to be.

    I like the cast, but the show is just so-so. I'll give it a few more episodes, but I prefer the show Lowe had last season, Lyon's Den.

    Hated it... I would have rather seen the practice outside of the casino so he could go to different environments in a "csi" kind of way.


    too far fetched for me to watch.
    They serenaded the newest champs in this city of champs, and taunted Kobe Bryant and his Lakers, who drowned in a green-and-white wave for 48 minutes.

    The first episode was "ok". I'll give it a few tries just like I have the other new shows for the season. I hope it gets better. I like Rob Lowe.
    Phenomenal woman... that's me!!!

    Dang, how many tv shows are they going to give Rob Lowe? I doubt this show makes it very far.

    Only one Amy Adams I saw.

    Was that a rumor going around saying American Idol's Amy Adams is in the pilot because I didn't ever see her in the entire show. The only Amy Adams I saw was the busty Amy Adams who was in Serving Sara and guest star in Smallville.

    Rob Lowe loses bet on 'dr. vegas'
    Wednesday, November 3, 2004 Posted: 1539 GMT (2339 HKT)


    NEW YORK (AP) -- Rob Lowe, who flopped last season in a freshman NBC drama, lost another bet Tuesday as his new series, "dr. vegas," was yanked by CBS.

    Calling the sudden disappearance a "hiatus," CBS announced that a repeat episode of its hit drama "Without a Trace" would air this week in the slot (10 p.m. EST Friday) followed the rest of November by reruns of "Cold Case," "CSI: Miami" and "CSI."

    There was no mention of a future return by "dr. vegas," which ranked 58th last week in audience with 7.3 million viewers -- losing 2.1 million viewers from its lead-in, "JAG."

    It was Lowe's third series in as many years. After leaving NBC's "The West Wing" in 2003, he returned in the fall to head up a legal drama, "The Lyon's Den," which was canceled midseason.

    On "dr. vegas" he starred as Dr. Billy Grant, the in-house physician at a posh Las Vegas casino who had a rollicking after-hours lifestyle. Lowe's co-star on the drama was Joe Pantoliano, himself on the rebound from last season's failed CBS crime show, "The Handler."

    "dr. vegas" wasn't the only series to have seized on Las Vegas as a storytelling site. "CSI" has made hay with crime procedurals set amid Vegas' glitz and decay, while NBC's "Las Vegas" dwells in its own glamorous casino-resort, the Montecito.

    In an interview with The Associated Press when "dr. vegas" premiered in September, Lowe contrasted his new series with his more sober-minded past efforts.

    "I thought it would be fun to try a show that had a higher element of devil-may-care entertainment," Lowe said. "This is not HBO, not groundbreaking. That's not what I'm trying to do. ... 'dr. vegas' is a guilty pleasure without the guilt -- let's hope."
