The new drama Golden Boy passed its tryout on Tuesdays at 10. CBS will keep the drama about a young police commissioner on the night and move Vegas – which used to air in the time slot – a new home on Fridays.
CBS was originally planning to move Golden Boy to Fridays after the preview broadcasts on Feb. 26 and March 3. (An original episode will still air this Friday at 9 as planned).
Now Vegas will air Fridays at 9 beginning April 5, following coverage of the NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament. The new night should give Vegas a better chance to survive for a second season since the threshold for success is lower on Fridays than Tuesdays, where it was
averaging a 1.7.
In its two Tuesday broadcasts, Golden Boy won its time period in viewers (9.98 million) and in 18-49 (1.7/5).
