      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Las Vegas has visual panache and star power to spare, but the series feels narratively clumsy with an ill-defined ensemble and a romantic subplot that is both icky and tiresome.

      Previous Ken Tucker Entertainment Weekly The doe-eyed Duhamel and craggy Caan quickly developed an easy, light-comic rapport that's been fun to take in. B+ Oct 22, 2018 Full Review Robert Lloyd Los Angeles Times Given how little of compelling interest happens here, one's take on the series will likely depend largely on whether one finds Las Vegas a priori a place of glamour or just a sad machine for parting suckers from their money. Oct 22, 2018 Full Review David Bianculli New York Daily News Las Vegas has so many assets, including James Caan as its biggest-name star, that the show should be a good bet. But like casino chips sprinkled over a roulette table, the assets of this NBC show aren't being used very wisely. 2/4 Oct 22, 2018 Full Review Bruce R. Miller Sioux City Journal It's soap stuff, but it's hip. B+ Jan 14, 2020 Full Review Lesley M. Smith PopMatters It's a pity the premise for this show didn't fall into the hands of more capable adults. Oct 22, 2018 Full Review Betsy Wallace Common Sense Media Viewers get the fabulous Caan in the lead role, plenty of good-natured humor, and a show that's stimulating without being an assault to the senses. 3/5 Oct 22, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews Next
