And the Award Goes To...
WTF Award: Goes to CBS, for suddenly dropping A.J. Cook from Criminal Minds and reducing Paget Brewster's episodes in order to cut costs. This leaves the show with just one female lead, so now CBS looks cheap and sexist! Why would they want to alienate fans of a show that's done so well in the ratings that it's getting a spin off in the midseason? Why is it they can't pay A.J. Cook and Paget Brewster's salaries but have no qualms when it comes to shelling out $2 million an episode for a guy who has had two of his cars stolen and driven off a cliff in one year and that is the least of his problems? Why wouldn't they at least give the cast a heads-up about all of this so they weren't stuck issuing shocked and pissed off statements through their Twitter accounts? It makes no sense to me at all.
