"The Casino"
  • Has anybody been watching The Casino on FOX?

    Its about the two guys (Tim and Tom) who bought the Nugget in downtown Vegas. It has been a pretty interesting show so far. It's interesting seeing some of the behind the scenes kind of stuff. Last week they showed a guy bet 1,000 one dollar bills on a single hand of blackjack. Even if it is a reality show, I would recommend giving it a watch. It is on 9 pm central time on Monday nights.
  • I don't know if I'd call it a reality show. Maybe pseudo-reality. A lot of it is too staged for my tastes (I still watch it occasionally, but not every week). If you really want to see behind the scenes casino show, watch American Casino on Discovery Channel on Friday nights. Far better show, IMO.
  • Yes, a bit too staged, but for me it is a long way to Las Vegas so I like seeing the sights and sounds anyway since I only get to vist Vegas every couple of years :(

    I agree, but that casino on The Discovery Channel seems, well, I find it hard to beleive that the management teams consist of such, ummm, Let's just say they are a work in progress. Running that business on a wing and a prayer. At least that's how it seemed to me.

Howdy, Stranger!
