Who knows where the show ends up, but I have a feeling that Vegas will at least begin in the same range as previous lower-profile efforts like The Good Wife and Unforgettable. Unforgettable in particular was a show that wasn't making magazine covers and the like. So I see the NCIS pair's audience hanging in there about as well as they did with Unforgettable, but then I think there might be some extra samplers from outside the typical CBS realm.
