No offense to Rachel Nichols, but if they had added her to the show as a regular, I would be TICKED off. They drop J.J. from the show for budget reasons and then bring someone else on? What's up with that? The show won't be the same without J.J.

Wow, Criminal Minds' budget must be in the toilet.

I swear, watching tonight's episode, I think the writers are just as pissed at JJ's firing as I am.

What a shame on Rachel Nichols' role getting "downgraded"... Why is this girl so unlucky at FBI shows? I'd loved having her on CM as a regular cast member... Pity...
