    didnt see this in the forum yet. ill definitely miss her, especially when her hair was down :) so do you really get tired of doing shows like this and the money? i guess it's possible but i'd have to think it's pretty darn rewarding.

    "We offered Cote a lot of money and then we offered her even more money," Moonves said. "We really didn't want to lose her. We love her ... We obviously were in discussion with the rest of the cast and the producers [and Cote]. Ultimately, she decided she didn't want to do the show."

    I liked her character and it looked like she and Tony were warming to each other.

    Time to bring Kate back and explain away the bullet in the head as an evil twin or clone!

    Sasha Alexander is sort of busy co-starring in Rizzoli and Isles, with Angie Harmon.

    I'm curious if her replacement will an actress new to the series, or if they bring in a character that has appeared before, however briefly. Maybe somebody that was slated for NCIS:Red. I don't see many seasons left for the original NCIS, but maybe it has gotten an extension now that Red has been axed.

    We'll miss Ziva, too. Something I read yesterday indicated that, early in the upcoming season, they will address the "will they/won't they" issue between her and Tony...

    The first season was only 10 episodes, and season two started an entire year later. Seasons two, three and four (almost halfway through so far) are 15 episodes, but again, starting a YEAR apart. I pretty much forget everything from the past season by the time the next starts. This applies to a few shows that only air a short summer season.

    The writing for the female agents on the show has always been sub-par, IMHO. I can see why someone would want to move on. I wish her all the best.

    And it'll be good for the show to mix things up a little.

    I'd like to see them bring back the young lady who's a relative of the producer and played McGee's girlfriend in a short scene at the end of one of the episodes a few years ago, wearing nothing but one of his shirts.

    McGee has a new girlfriend this year according to THIS...Margo Harshman. She played Sheldon's brainiac assistant on BBT last season.

    In the past, actors have turned down alot more money than she was making because they wanted to move on to something else. This is nothing new.

    such as
    Chevy Chase - Saturday Night Live
    David Caruso - NYPD Blue
    McLean Stevenson - M*A*S*H

    and they all found immediate success after leaving their TV series while it was still very highly rated

    One wonders if this will be the last or second to last season for NCIS - to let NCIS LA and NCIS Red take over and be the ones to carry the brand.

    Sort of like what happened to JAG - it starts to collapse a bit, then finds its legs enough for a final season to wrap it all up and let the spinoff thrive.

    NCIS has been the top rated scripted show for the past two years.

    Hadn't heard that. I am a bit surprised that they axed it without giving it a chance.

    Didn't David Caruso bomb as a movie actor? I thought it wasn't until he came back to TV years later that he got popular again.

    There is no NCIS Red. It wasn't picked up for a series.

    There was nothing to axe.
