CBS kills off 'Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior'

Forest Whitaker, you deserved better: CBS has cancelled the low-rated freshman drama Suspect Behavior, which was a spinoff of the Criminal Minds mother ship. The network has found great success with spinning off its other procedurals like CSI and JAG, but it just didn’t work out for Suspect Behavior, a dark drama that also featured Janeane Garofolo and Matt Ryan.

The show’s ouster should make room for either the new drama Unforgettable, which features Poppy Montgomery and is about a  female NYPD detective who possesses the special ability to remember everything, or The 2-2, which is from Robert De Niro and follows six NYPD rookies as they balance their personal lives with learning the beat on the streets of Manhattan. Both dramas were ordered this week.

CBS will announce its fall schedule Wednesday in New York.

That’s because it’s season finale time – that heartbreaking period when we bid adieu to nine months of scripted heaven to make way for three months of unscripted hell on the broadcast networks.

'Criminal Minds' star Kirsten Vangsness calls A.J. Cook's firing 'a galvanizing experience'

Cook’s high profile dismissal, well, you’d be right. Making matters worse, Cook’s departure coincided with the announcement that Vangsness’ character—kooky computer tech Penelope—would be featured on both Minds and its spin-off, Suspect Behavior. While Vangsness maintains that her promotion had “nothing to do with” Cook’s exit, she concedes the timing of the two events was unfortunate. “It was a galvanizing experience—[they] just fired my friend,” Vangsness sighs. “It was a total shock. It absolutely affects morale. It sucks.”
