What the Hell is happening over at CBS!?! First they pull simliar crap w/Criminal Minds and now this.

CSI : NY will not be the same, and dare I say it, this very well could finish the show. Melina had fantastic chemistry w/everyone, but especially w/Gary Sinise. You believed right away in the back story of the two of them having such a long term and close friendship.

I'm another one who remembers Melina on GL. I've followed her career ever since and I really hope she has another great project coming her way soon. CSI NY is the only one out of the three in the Franchise that I watch anymore, but after Melina's final shows this Fall, I have a feeling that could change. She'll really be missed.

She isn't supposed to be back at all right now. Maybe later on but for the moment, CBS declined any comment on whether she'll be back for one last episode and the author of the article from Entertainment Weekly said that he was told she wouldn't be back.
Which makes you wonder... a lot.

Since some on the board voiced their disappointment over MK's departure, I'd thought I'd post those links.
Apparently when Adam Rodriguez decided to leave CSI Miami last year, fans petitioned and - together with a drop in ratings - succeeded for him not to be killed off. CBS started to negotiate with him and he guest starred in season 8.
I found that fans are trying to do the same with Melina Kanakaredes. I'm not going to not watch CSI NY anymore though I will certainly watch the show differently.
However, I think CBS is treating (mainly) their actresses in a... weird way and I think it would only be fair to Melina Kanakaredes and her character if she would at least get closure for her character and would not be killed off.
I certainly loved the job she did in bringing Stella to life and I think Stella deserves better than that.

So, here are the links to the twitter and facebook petitions.

I'm sorry I'm only getting to this now. Been having Puter Problems.

Anyway...Going by instinct here, but I have a feeling that the resoultion to the Season Finale Cliffhanger was filmed before the Summer Break. If that's the case, then we'll have at least one episode w/Stella this coming season.

Still...This entire mess sucks!!

They've started ads for the new cast and night. OT- when Melina first came to Hollywood, she was advised to change her name (too ethnic), straighten her hair (too curly), and get her nose fixed (too crooked). Well, as they say, the proof is in the souvlaki, gal is successful, popular, and carries her heritage on her sleeve (or should I say arms. Gal is buff and beautiful).
