Did you ever hear of the saying "don't fix it if it's not broken?" I won't even watch the new CM, only reruns, because JJ is not on the new ones, and Garcia's role has all of a sudden changed, and Emily's presence is dwindling by the episode. CBS is making changes for no reason whatsoever, why????? I will ALWAYS watch the reruns... forever, but will NOT watch the new ones

I thought AJ Cook created one of the most subtly complex characters. Sooner or later the capitalists ruin everything.

I like JJ very much, as I do all the people in this show. But I don't think her leaving will really affect the show very much. Isn't the other chick leaving too?

Just watched new episode "Coda". I'm still totally surprised the network doesn't see that the new character Ashley/Rachel adds NOTHING to the show. The addition actually degrades the quality of the show, bringing it way way down. This is a huge blind spot. Maybe they want to totally focus on the Spin-Off which, by the way, I'll not be watching again. Once was enough to know it just doesn't have the pizzazz of the original CRIMINAL MINDS. It is a pale substitute and appears to be a wanna-be original C.M. I have no interest in it. Darn. I wish they'd bring back AJ and offer Paget a great package if she'd stay as a main character, and then lose Rachel Nichols. If the quality doesn't come back up, I wonder if they might lose some of the more seasoned actors, as any down-sliding will certainly negatively reflect on them. Can only hope. --- Joy

Bring JJ back. You let one get away and now you are messing up the show again. The little blond you are bringing on is no JJ and will never help the show.

CBS is unraveling the characters and destroying the show. Family feeling is gone already. And it just doesn't work to have one character (Garcia) take over another character's (JJ) role. Fractures the authenticity of what was, and fractures the family. New character's status in BAU is totally unbelievable. Plus, the actor' skills are so far below the rest of the ensemble, it's startling. She needs to pay some more dues by working with actors of her own caliber. It's a bit embarrassing actually. Meaning I'm embarrassed for her while watching the show. I'm a performer (musician) too, and I know it's really really bad to let the audience feel sorry for you. Anyway, the whole show now doesn't add up any more. I watched the spinoff and found it nothing special. Same old same old. And none of the characters are as compelling as the original. I also find it disturbing to see Penelope on this one. It's too weird. And how could she be so familiar with all these profilers already. She couldn't. And, I'd think a lot better of Kirsten had she turned this down. The spinoff definitely cannibalized the original show. So Kirsten has two jobs and AJ and possibly Page come out with no job. I am so saddened by all the recent turn of events. CBS is most certainly not respectful of women -- and they had the best! Also, to not listen to their constituency as it were, is unconscionable. Seems like a lot of male posturing and needing to be right. And they couldn't be more wrong. Oh yes, if they get rid of Hotch, forget it. I a so very very sorry to see all this happening to the best show in TV. --- Joy

Bring jj back..they're not a family without her at all! Don't let prentiss go either cuz it looks like you're about to do that with prentiss's past coming back. And its okay to bring in seaver cuz I think her and reid would be awesome together but she can't be apart of the team..make her a side character that she fits in their personal lives..(reids)..so point 1 keep jj..point 2..keep every character that is on this show. ..point 3 give reid a relationship with someone..oh added point.(morgan shirtless more often plz)..bigger picture being, put these points into your show and wahlah ratings will soar higher then they ever have been

I'm annoyed they axed JJ and cut Prentis's screentime, to save money, and then added Seaver, who's debut was heavy-handed and melodramatic. Quite honestly it also seems like they are removing all of the women, and it's a relief Garcia is still there.

What is wrong with this picture. They cbs take an exceptional series and destroy it JJ is the best actor on this series she shows emotion and empathy and is greatly appreciated by the viewing crowd. Why destroy a good thing hell a great thing. Be like all the rest of the channels and ruin your own creation there is no money reasons for her to leave other then she probably wouldn't sleep with the higher ups. What a shame.

Does anyone know of a petition we can sign to get the attention of CBS that its viewers, who need we remind them, pay their salary, wants JJ's character returned immediately? Please post anything anyone knows that we can do to get their attention. No one else can fill her shoes and it is all of them together that makes this show so good. I hope this is a sign it is on it's way down in ratings.
