Courtesy of today's Irish Independent, news that 2 of the Criminal Minds cast may not be coming back for season 9 (if there is a season 9) over a pay deal..... Am not going to say too much in case people don't want to know; but from reading the article, it seems to be a case of CBS not learning their lessons.

Petition to keep AJ and Paget on Criminal Minds


As I'm typing this (at 12.44 on Thursday afternoon), there are 17,362 signatures on there.

Looks like the CM cast were just as taken aback by the casting news as anyone else:

Paget posted that "Creative Reasons" has been an Executive Bullshit excuse for DECADES. It IS financial. AJ is a dreamboat. And yes, I am hurt, too.” - presumably in response to the latest news that this is a creative decision rather than a financial one, and that there will be a new female cast member joining the show. Which is further evidence of WTFery and FUCBS.

She followed that with: Thanks to all the fans. From me, AJ and the cast. We love you. We will always appreciate your support. You are kind and wonderful. KISSES!!”

Thomas Gibson tweeted: “To say we're all mystified and disappointed is an understatement...all the fan support is much appreciated! Stay tuned...”

Matthew Gray Gubler: I feel like I'm in a strange dream where nothing makes sense...”

Joe Mantegna & Kristin Vangness both tweeted links to the petition to save AJ & Paget; in addition, Joe tweeted that he’s been in Europe for the last 3 weeks promoting CM, and the first he heard of this was when he got back to the US. When someone tweeted about him & Kristin being on board to save the ladies, he replied, “Of course we are. We love them and the show wouldn't be the same without them.”

I love that the cast are so close and backing each other up on this; is it too much to hope that TPTB will see the error of their ways? 


Oh yeah, this is CBS we're talking about. Not a hope.

Just saw this on Ausiello - obviously, don't click on the link if you don't want to know.... link

In a way, I can understand the reasoning behind this; but can I just say that it massively, massively sucks??
