Dear CBS


Thank you so fucking much for gutting my show

If this comes to pass, they have taken a show that has captured me from the beginning and is all about the teamwork. A well balanced team of men and women that can work together without all the sexual tension bullshit that runs rampant throughout most of television today. A smart, well written and downright brilliant TV show that works so well because of it's balanced cast is now going to be gutted because some fucking suits at CBS have to cut costs and decided to axe one of the three females and reduce another to recurring status.

Yet you have money to throw at a spin-off that is going to suck, based on the back door pilot?? A pilot that needs extensive retooling, starring Forest Whitaker (granted, the guy is talented but certainly not cheap). This thing is going to tank faster than anything unless you do a major retool. Save your fucking money, put it towards the show you already have you fucking morons. Churn out another cheap reality show if you need something to fill in an hour on TV.

I really hope they can find a way to find the money to keep both ladies on the show. It just won't be the same without them, even if they haven't found a way to write a back story for either of them yet.

SO CBS, I will be taking a wait and see approach. I will give you a chance to make this right. But if you screw this up and screw my show up? I'll stop watching your shows. I know that it will only lead to heartbreak in the end. Not that you will care, after all, I am only one person.

Except I think you will find there are a lot of people like me out there that are just as pissed off by this.

AJ Cook and Paget Brewster are awesome. The whole cast, really, is awesome. I have no idea why they feel the need to get rid of any of them unless they decide they don't want to continue. And why, exactly, is it only the women being cut?
