I watched the first episode of Dr Vegas today. I must say, it has promise. I’ll bet CBS doesn’t let it run past 1 season, but still, I’m enjoying what I saw in the first ep.

Rob Lowe plays a doctor, who happens to have his office in a casino, and also just happens to have saved the life of the man in charge at said casino.

This show is of course hot on the heels of NBC’s Las Vegas, another glitzy show set in the famous town. For my money though, Dr Vegas has the better potential, Las Vegas has proved time and again that it is little more than nice views. Failing to provide decent (and believable) stories.

I’ll keep watching, but I wonder if Dr Vegas will manage to keep the viewers interest.
