"The Real Thing" - Savino decides it's time to put a new, mob-friendly mayor in office, and with his wife Laura's help, grooms George Grady for the campaign. Meanwhile, Sheriff Lamb investigates the murder of a dentist who appears to have been killed because of his gambling addiction, on a rebroadcast of VEGAS, Tuesday, Jan. 29 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Gil Bellows guest stars as mayoral candidate George Grady. Vinessa Shaw returns as Savino's wife, Laura. (Originally broadcast 11/13/12.)
Dennis Quaid and Michael Chiklis star in VEGAS, a drama inspired by the true story of former Las Vegas Sheriff Ralph Lamb, a fourth-generation rancher tasked with bringing order to Las Vegas in the 1960s, a gambling and entertainment mecca emerging from the tumbleweeds. Ralph Lamb wants to be left in peace to run his ranch, but Las Vegas is now swelling with outsiders and corruption which are intruding on his simple life. Recalling Lamb's command as a military police officer during World War II, the Mayor appeals to his sense of duty to look into a murder of a casino worker - and so begins Lamb's clash with Vincent Savino, a ruthless Chicago gangster who plans to make Vegas his own. Assisting Lamb in keeping law and order are his two deputies: his diplomatic, even-keeled brother, Jack, and his charming but impulsive son, Dixon. Ambitious Assistant District Attorney Katherine O'Connell, who grew up on the ranch next to the Lambs, also lends a hand in preserving justice. In VEGAS, two powerful men - Lamb and Savino - are engaged in a fierce battle for control of the budding oasis, and for both of them, folding is not an option.
