When CBS announced that they renewed CSI: Vegas for a second season, they said that William Petersen was not coming back. Earlier this week, Jorja Fox, who also from original series, said she decided that her character could not come back without Grisson.

Today, Deadline is reporting that Mel Rodriguez, who plays Hugo Ramirez, is also leaving the show.

With his departure, that means that half of the cast is gone. So who is left? The remaining three actors are Paula Newsome, Matt Lauria, and Mandeep Dhillon. The three actors I never heard of before I posted their names. Because it is all about me.

With all of these departures, it makes you wonder if CBS made the right choice by picking up the procedural for another season. Do you think you did?

Back in December, CBS announced that they picked up CSI: Vegas for a second season. They also revealed that William Petersen was not coming back for more episodes. Today we found that he is not the only one.

Jorja Fox, who is an original cast member of CSI wrote, “Hey all you #CSI fans! After much deliberating, I have decided not to ‘Sidle up’ for CSI Vegas. For me CSI has always been a love story. The story that people can find love in the darkest of places and times. And the story that love, even in the darkest of places and times, can expand and grow roots and endure.

“I personally just can’t split Sara and Grissom up again. So goes Grissom…..So goes Sara. Wherever they go, they belong together.

“Thanks for watching everyone!!!!! Keep tuning in! I know I will. CSI: Vegas has an incredible team and it should be an amazing show!”

I respect her reason for leaving. However, it makes me wonder if CBS made the right choice of picking up the show for a second season. Are you still going to watch without them?

CBS announced today that they are picking up Ghosts, The Neighborhood, and Bob Hearts Abishola for another season. The three shows will join Young Sheldon and CSI: Vegas on the 2022-2023 schedule.

“We’re thrilled to bring back television’s four most-watched comedies for next season, and I’m proud of the incredible team that maintains CBS’ position as the clear leader in comedy,” said Kelly Kahl, President, CBS Entertainment. “Joe Port and Joe Wiseman, together with a breakout cast and exceptional writers, have done a superb job of adapting GHOSTS for the U.S. and absolutely making it their own. This smart and charming show is delivering new creative highs, not to mention scaring up new audience highs, every week.”

“And on Mondays, the perfect pairing of THE NEIGHBORHOOD and BOB HEARTS ABISHOLA continues to deftly blend belly laughs with relatable and culturally relevant storylines, thanks to these exceptionally talented actors and outstanding creative teams,” Kahl continued.

Ghosts has been the surprise hit of the Fall. Each week the show has been finding more and more viewers, and they are sticking around. That is the power of the heartfelt, funny comedy that makes you fall in love with it at first sight.


Sam’s father makes her the butt of all jokes on Good Sam tonight
January 19th, 2022 under CBS, Jane the Virgin, Sophia Bush. [ Comments: 10 ]

CBS’s new medical drama Good Sam is about a daughter and her dad fighting for the same position, the Cheif of Surgery. You see, Sam’s (Sophia Bush) father Griff (Jason Isaacs) held the position until he was shot and spent six months in a coma. During his absence, the hospital offered his job to Sam. Now that he is awake, he will do anything to get that position back, including screwing over his daughter.

Last week, Griff went to the board and convinced them to give him his job back. Sam then went to them and got them to hold off. Now, they are at war. And tonight at 10p, he proves he is a$$hole. He finds a way to embarrass his daughter and cost the hospital a lot of money. So Sam has to find a way to undo what he did, but she might not be able to do it.

If that is enough, she has a patient that has come in with chest pains after sex. Sam notices she had a heart attack. Actually, she has had several and didn’t even know it. Therefore, Sam has to figure out what has been causing them before one of them kills her, and the patient has not been completely honest about her history.

Sam will get the patient’s real history from her doctor. That doctor has had a history with Griff, and she offers Sam an offer she can’t refuse. But Sam refuses it. How long can Sam say no to her offer?

There is even more trouble for Sam’s department. One of her doctors lost a patient on the table. Now, they are having problems coping with it. Will they be able to find out why a simple procedure led to their patient dying?

Oh, and did I mention that is episode is directed by Jane the Virgin’s Gina Rodriguez? She is as good in front of the camera as she is from behind it.

I have to admit that I wasn’t wowed by the pilot of Good Sam. But now that I have watched the first three episodes, I am in love with the show. The pilot was just setting things up for the great war between a father and his daughter, all while mixing the heart that Sam has when she sees her patients. Sam and Bush are the same when it comes to caring for people. It is as though this character was made for Bush, and that is why she was perfectly cast in the role.


No more Bull at CBS
January 18th, 2022 under CBS, Michael Weatherly. [ Comments: none ]

Michael Weatherly announced today that this will be Bull’s final season on CBS.

“Hello all! It’s been my privilege to play Dr Jason Bull but after 6 Seasons of incredible storylines, I’ve decided it’s time to pursue new creative challenges and bring his story to a close,” the actor wrote. “It has been an honor to work with this talented cast, crew, and writing/producing team who helped reinvent the legal drama. Stay tuned for a big series finish…Thanks to all the fans from the bottom of my heart. You will always be a part of our Bull family!”

Is the news a surprise? Not really; it has never been a ratings juggernaut. This year has been even tougher on the show that was moved to Thursdays at 10p. That, and it was controversial after Weatherly was accused of sexually harassing Eliza Dushku and CBS gave her an almost $10 million settlement.

In other cancellation news, NBC is no longer in business with Ellen DeGeneres. That is because they cancelled Ellen’s Game of Games after four seasons, according to Deadline.
