I don’t mean to say that Fox desperately wants to have the TV show Las Vegas, but….
One of their new nights starts of with North Shore, about an upscale hotel and the handsome young turk who works there and this lovely gal with whom he’s just friends and his crusty boss and all the half-draped female eye candy who they can work in, and the weekly dramas around guest problems. In other words, a rather blatant case of Las Vegas, only without the casino.
Immediately after that is their new reality series, The Casino.
(Although calling it a “reality series” is being generous. I bent my rule about not watching network reality series for this one, figuring that it might be a real look behind the scenes at a casino, and not some carefully manipulated human degradation series. But given all the places that they had cameras and all the awareness that the people had that they were on camera, it seems pretty clear that the “wild” times there were carefully set up.)
