CSI - now what?

In case you haven’t heard, CBS recently fired George Eads and Jorja Fox from their number one rated TV series, CSI. The two actors who played Nick Stokes and Sarah Sidle respectively were apparently trying to get more money from the studio by not showing up to work when requested. I guess $100,000 per episode wasn’t enough for those two. If you are a member of my site, the discussion is taking place in the forum and the mood is sombre. Initially I was horrified by the news, I refused to believe it, but now as the time wears on, I have come to accept it for what it is. I have heard that Eric Szmanda (who plays Greg Sanders) and Paul Guilfoyle (Jim Brass) will be playing bigger roles now. News sites are saying that it is possible the characters will be replaced, but no matter what happens I can only imagine that it will affect the ratings probably for the worse. But I’m going to stay open to new things.

Speaking of which, CSI: NY will be opening this fall and I am actually really looking forward to that one as well.
