This image released by CBS shows Dennis Quaid as Ralph Lamb, left, and Michael Chiklis as Vincent Savino in the pilot episode of “Vegas,” premiering Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 10 p.m. EST on CBS.

The new CBS TV show “Vegas” hit it big with almost 15 million viewers in its first week, and then another 2.35 million viewers who recorded and watched the show within three days of the original broadcast.

The series, which airs at 10 p.m. Tuesdays, portrays former Clark County Sheriff Ralph Lamb, played by Dennis Quaid. The character is based on the real-life Lamb and is set in the '60s. In the show, Lamb is pitted against mobster Vincent Savino, played by Michael Chiklis.

To make it easier to catch the show, here are several ways you can check it out.

    • Watch it on CBS

      This is the obvious choice, and watching the show right as it’s played is probably the best option because you don’t have to worry about water cooler talk at the office ruining the plot the next day.

    • Catch it on the CBS.com

      If you can’t catch the show live, the best option is probably to watch on the network website for free. The show generally is available for four weeks after the original air date, though the exact time varies. Free usually is best, but if you don’t have Internet, or your connection is weak, you may have to look into the other options.

    • Purchase it on iTunes

      This is an interesting option because it gives you the most flexibility. The show is available the next day for download, and you can share it with multiple devices, providing yourself with maximum options for mobility. The iTunes file is great for travelers and, of course, is a great way to view the show again and again. The show’s premiere can be downloaded for free at the iTunes shop.

    • DVR the show

      This may be the most popular way to view the show because you can fast forward through the commercials and watch it whenever you have the time. But most DVR services generally come with an additional fee, and while you can watch the show as many times as you want, you can’t take it anywhere.
