2472 right now. :)

The thing is that it turned out it's not a financial decision, but a creative one. They're also planning on adding another female character to, I suppose, replace JJ while Emily would still be in some of the episodes.

This whole things sucks.

Well, first they said it was financial, then they said it was creative.

Either way, I started the petition because I don't intend to let this go down without a fight.

I notice that the male cast are considered crucial and women are apparently expendable in the eyes of CBS. Everywhere in the world, us women are subject to discrimination for being women.

Oh, I agree. And a HUGE thank you for starting that petition.

I can't f*cking believe this.

Why would-
What could posses anyone to-
No, I still can't believe it.

I read a post about this somewhere else and I thought, "This HAS to be a joke." So I looked at the Ausiello files and ...I'm so sad.

Since when are characters this expendable? Beyond the sexist aspect, wtf is happening here?

My favorite show, my favorite actress, my favorite character. *sniffs*

What the HELL is going on?

More than 44.000 signatures. I just added mine.

I still can't believe I just had to ask for Paget and AJ to be kept on the show.

I thought I didn't have to worry about any of them for at least 3 seasons.

Again, my mind screams WTF.
