Now that CBS has ascertained Golden Boy isn’t a program that needs to be insta-cancelled, the network is shuffling around its schedule to make room for both Golden Boy and Vegas. The midseason series was expected to move to Fridays, soon, but instead Golden Boy will be sticking with the 10 p.m. slot on Tuesdays and Vegas will start airing on Fridays at 9 p.m. ET.
To make things a little more complicated for fans, tomorrow’s timeslot will be a little funky thanks to a last-minute call from CBS. Deadline is reporting that on March 8, Golden Boy will get one Friday airing, before returning to its Tuesday timeslot next week. Vegas has been on hold to make room for Golden Boy, but will not be returning to the schedule until April 5, after March Madness has completed its run.
Neither CBS’ Vegas or the network’s newer program, Golden Boy, are crushing in the ratings—at least if you are looking at it from a CBS standpoint. By this I mean Golden Boy has done between 9.5 and 10.5 million viewers an episode—enviable numbers by other network standards, but not so great for the eye network, especially considering Golden Boy has only averaged a 1.7 rating. Vegas has had similar success on Tuesdays, but those numbers may dwindle a bit thanks to the show moving to Fridays.
It’s a little early to claim these two shows are both headed for cancellation, but both Golden Boy and Vegas look almost as dismal as CSI: NY when it comes to the ratings that encourage advertisers to spend money. We’ll have to wait and see what programs CBS picks up to series and what that means for some of the already-airing shows.
