CBS cancels ‘Viva Laughlin’


It's a sad day for fans of the TV musical, the TV murder mystery and the TV casino drama. All three of them.  Viva Laughlin, CBS' first foray into the multihyphenate genre, has been yanked after just two airings, joining CW's Online Nation and Fox's Nashville in the fall season's discard pile. A repeat of CSI will be deployed in Viva Laughlin's barely used 8 p.m., Sunday time slot next weekend, the network said Monday. Then, starting Nov. 4, the Emmy-winning, American Idol-denying Amazing Race will begin its 12th season there. 

The Hollywood trades, which first reported the story, declared Viva Laughlin a terminal case—as in canceled. In network tradition, CBS was loath to use the "C" word itself, preferring to describe the freshman show, to E! News, as having been "pulled," no doubt gently and with great care, from the schedule.
