Tv shows Filming in Las Vegas

I have to admit CSI Las Vegas was my favourite show for a good long time (until grissom and sarah did the dirty) and Las Vegas is a great show that i need to see more of

reading up on some LA shows being filmed, it seems theyve started filming their sitcoms etc now

It would be amazingly cool to see a film crew live in Las Vegas, especially CSI.

Does anyone know if any of these shows (or others) are filming in the next couple of months?

Many thanks if you can help :0)

Virtually all the filming for shows like CSI and others set in LV is done at sound stages at Hollywood. The only time they go to Vegas is to do one or two exterior shots that are simply impossible to recreate.

Extremely unlikely you'll ever see any filming in Vegas.

when we were down in Fremont street last October we saw a film crew filming for CSI we stood for 2 hours watching and videoing (they said they did not mind you filming or taking pics no flash though) and when the show was broadcast the scene lasted all of about 10 seconds, (it was the one about the 70s gangster). None of the main stars were there but i was very happy so say when the scene was televised that i was there.

ive read Las Vegas has the largest set for a tv show so i pretty much knew they wouldnt do any location filming unless completely necessary

saying that however, i always assumed it was based on the monte carlo or bellagio and that they just cgid the montecito onto one of these hotels

its cool to hear about the csi filming at fremont. I figured if they ever film anywhere on location it would be downtown.

its a shame there isnt an unofficial website out there that lists when these shows are being made on location

Is it just me or in some fly by sceenes it looks like the computer generated Montecito and the also computer generated hotel in Ocean 13's are "located" on vacant open space (where the are no real buildings) "across" the strip from Mandalay Bay?

I think Oceans 13 was the empty lot between Planet Ho and the Harley Cafe. Overall that movie was a huge dissappointment.

Las Vegas uses it's Montecito from the Bellagio. And Oceans 13 was for sure in the empty lot behind PH.
