I watch just about any show on TV that includes Las Vegas. Las Vegas will probably always be my favorite TV show about Vegas, but it’s almost 10 years old and I’ve probably seen every episode 20 times. Travel Channel and Destination America keep recycling 20+ year old shows that are so out of date they’re fun to watch.
Now in its 3rd season I’m finally realizing how great the TV show Vegas Strip, on Tru TV, actually is. The show is basically a less serious version of the show Cops that takes place on the Las Vegas strip. This makes sense since the show is produced by the co-creator of “Cops”, Morgan Langley.
Unlike “Cops”, the show focuses on less serious crime and life on the strip.You’ll find more dealing with drunks and prostitutes then you will serious crime.
The cops post up between Planet Hollywood and Harrah’s which is where most of the action takes place. Every now and again a car will catch fire in front of Bellagio, but most of the drunk raging takes place in front of a Caesars property.
If you’re missing Las Vegas then “Vegas Strip” will fill the Vegas void in your life. “Vegas Strip” is a light hearted 22 minutes of the fun that takes place on a night on the Vegas strip. I can dig that.
Vegas Strip airs Monday night at 10pm on Tru TV.
If you get sucked into “Vegas Strip” (which you shouldn’t) you can buy episodes of all 3 seasons on Amazon.
