Vegas Takes Over Cable

Fast-forward to 2004: Vegas has rolled out the red carpet to TV producers.

Two prime-time shows devoted to all things Vegas already are on the air, two more are on this month, and another two in the fall ˇ not to mention all the poker and travel shows from and about the city.

The two new reality shows:
ýThe Casino,ţ set inside the Golden Nugget hotel-casino, focuses on a new pair of thirtysomething owners, Tom Breitling and Tim Poster, and debuts 9 p.m. EDT Monday on Fox. ItÝs produced by Mark Burnett, creator of ýSurvivorţ and ýThe Apprentice.ţ

ýAmerican Casino,ţ which began earlier this month on Discovery Channel, is less about the owners and more about the everyday challenges of working in a casino. From handling drunken guests to managing a Super Bowl party for thousands, the show (Fridays at 8 p.m. EDT) follows employees as they go to work at the suburban Green Valley Ranch hotel-casino.
