* AlternateRealityEpisode: There's an episode where Danny imagines himself and his co-workers working at a Las Vegas casino in the 1960s instead of the 2000s. Ed Deline is basically a mobster-turned casino boss as opposed to an ex-CIA agent turned casino manager, Mike faces racism from a {{Jerkass}} diner owner, and Sam Marquez is a hooker operating out of the casino.

** Episode 2.18 starts out with CCTV footage of a guy's head shoved onto a restaurant counter by SylvesterStallone, with his hand concealing nearly all of the man's face. They then remove the hand, fill in the missing features, do the same to the other half of the guy's face, ending up with a complete 3-d rendering of the guy's head by pure guesswork.

* MistakenForProstitute: A meta-example in the pilot. Danny [=McCoy=], the main character and {{Narrator}} for the first few episodes, is going through his work day and introducing the various supporting characters. After talking with his buxom colleague Mary, she walks off with one of her (older, male) clients, and Danny turns to the audience with "No, I know what you're thinking, and don't go there. Mary's not a hooker, she's our Special Events Director".

* EvilDebtCollector: Subverted in an episode where Sam Marquez is teamed up with a debt collector to track down several gamblers who are evading their debts to the casino. She asks him if he's gonna hurt anyone to force them to pay up, but he points out that this would quickly land him in jail if the debtor decides to call the authorities; according to him it's more about appearance and intimidation than just roughing people up.

This doesn't stop Sam from playing the "violent collector" part herself later on.

->If you're looking for the trope about the city itself, you want VivaLasVegas. Also not to be confused with the CBS series ''Series/{{Vegas}}''.

Running from 2003 to 2008 on NBC, ''Las Vegas'' was an hour-long drama that depicted the professional and personal lives of the employees of the Montecito Hotel and Casino, which was based loosely on the Mandalay Bay building. The show underwent several retools during its five-year run, usually referenced in-universe as the casino changing ownership (a few of the owners were portrayed by Dean Cain, Lara Flynn Boyle, and Creator/TomSelleck). Creator/JamesCaan and Nikki Cox left at the end of the fourth season (Caan to return to films, Cox, it was rumored, due to budget cuts) and Selleck was brought in as the new owner. Ratings, however, had never been stellar, and combined with the high costs of filming led the series to be canceled with a CliffHanger series finale. Creator Gary Scott Thompson at one point wanted to do a [=TVMovie=] that would tie up the numerous loose ends of the finale, but as yet nothing has come of it. Currently airs weekdays at noon and one p.m. EST on TNT.
