'Golden Boy' staying on Tuesdays; 'Vegas' to Fridays

A new drama will remain CBS’ Tuesday “Golden Boy.”

Theo James

“Vegas,” meanwhile, will now move to Fridays.

CBS originally planned to move “Golden Boy” to Fridays after previewing it on Feb. 26 and March 3.

An original episode will still air tonight at 9 p.m. as planned, and then “Vegas” will take the timeslot beginning April 5, after NCAA men’s basketball tournament coverage ends. This may be to “Vegas’” advantage, as expectations for success are lower on Fridays than Tuesday. “Vegas” was averaging a 1.7 on Tuesdays, so a second season is possible.

“Golden Boy” won its time period in viewers (9.98 million of them) and in the 18- 49 year old demographic (1.7/5) in its two Tuesday broadcasts.

“Golden Boy” is a crime drama series starring Theo James and Chi McBride, about the rise of an ambitious cop. It is produced by Berlanti Television and Warner Bros. Television.

“Vegas” star Dennis Quaid and Michael Chiklis (not to be confused with “Las Vegas,” which starred James Caan, Josh Duhamel and Vanessa Marcil) is a period drama series set in the 1960s. Quaid is a sheriff and rancher and Chiklis is a mobseter.
