Muhney, whose final installment will air January 30, added:

“I’m going to take some private time with my wife & kids, as I am most concerned for their well-being… I have 3 final episodes to film, and because they are my last, I will be giving it everything I have.”

CBS is yet to comment on the dismissal.

Please go to Facebook Page Don't Fire Michael Muhney and join our ceusade to get this actor back on the show. The preoduction team has been on a rampage lately, changing story lines,killing children off and letting go beloved actors. Enough is enough! If they want to cancel the show then they should just do it, instead of slowly destroying it without any regard for the loyal fans.
