Yes, I noticed this, too. I watched C.M. for about the first 5 seasons and like many other shows, she was dropped for another chick. I like Paget Brewster okay but I still like this woman, Lola Glaudini much better. I have always been a "purist" in that I hate it when shows cut or drop or even they leave on their own original characters. They got rid of Kate on NCIS and I never really care for Ziva or whatever her name was. Ruined it for me--I really stopped watching it after seeing a few shows with her in it.

I don't care about cast changes, personally, as long as the new cast doesn't suck. I like Joe Mantegna fine but I do wish Mandy Patinkin had stayed around longer on Criminal Minds, but I also prefer Paget Brewster to Lola, so I'm fine with the change. I really did not like the lady they added...I dunno, season 9 I think(character's name is Blake IIRC), and I haven't seen any of the current season with Jennifer Love Hewitt(but my hopes aren't high).

Ziva doesn't bother me, but I'm apparently not as enthralled with her as a lot of the NCIS fanbase was, either.

CM has long been one of my favorite shows.
Agreed about Mandy Patinkin - he made the show great, but I will give Mantegna credit - he rebuilt it on his own character, but he never would be able to replace 'Gideon'.
As far as the 'rotating position', I believe they are now on either the 6th or 7th female character in that position - and, I, for one, liked 'Blake' a lot more than JLH, or a number of the predecessors (probably because she was more realistic for me - lot more like 'da Missus).

When people ask me which chain food restaurant I like, I always say RUTH'S CHRIS. Now I want a serving of their creamed spinach and steak.

Me too with the name. It doesn't roll well.

We took my Dad here on his birthday one year - wow - probably 15 years ago.

Criminal Minds is the one show I really watch(well, till recently) that's not a cable show. Yeah, Mantegna has done fine with the show, but I always liked Gideon and still wish he'd make a return appearance, even if just a guest spot or something.

As for the revolving female position, you're close it's been filled by 4 characters. It was Elle in season 1 and part of season 2, Prentiss for the remainder of season 2 through season 7(with a guest appearance in season 9), Blake for season 8 and 9, and currently whoever JLH's character is. I like Prentiss best, prefer Elle to Blake, and haven't seen JLH's character so I can't comment.

There were a few short-term fill-ins: 1.) the daughter of the serial murderer (blond girl) was on a few episodes  2.) The cute girl who got in trouble for making up an untrue statement to the media, for a few episodes.

I don't recall the number 1 there honestly...the number 2 though was a fill in for A.J. Cook(J.J.) who took time off for her pregnancy. She was there while Prentiss was there, not part of that revolving role, and was never intended to be a replacement, just a fill in for the "media liason" role while Cook was having her baby.

Apparently, Ruth never liked it either.  She had to change the name (from Chris Steak House) when she changed locations (due to a fire), but wanted to let it be known that this was the same restaurant that people had come to know.  So, she added "Ruth's" to it, but never liked the new name.  This, per Wikipedia.

Now I remember her. She also replaced A.J. Cook, when the network decided not to renew her contract. That was season 6 I believe, then after massive complaints and petitions from the fans(which were signed by the other cast members as well), plus open hostility about the decision from the rest of the cast(either Shemar Moore or Thomas Gibson did an inteview where they referred to her firing as "bullsh*t") the network brought J.J. back so Seaver was gone. That whole mess really gave me some extra respect for the rest of the cast. They disagreed with the network's decision, and they made no attempts to try to tow the company line or be ambiguous or diplomatic about what they thought of it.

Seeing this ad again.

I still watch the show Criminal Minds..but eh..I think it may have run it's course, kind of thought this for the past 2 seasons. Maybe this season..perhaps one more and I think it should just end - give it proper series finale. The series has survived so many casting changes..but the ratings this season are dropping fast.

Big fuss over the summer was a total fallout after an altercation of  Thomas Gibson ("Hotch") with the producer - he was canned. He was in the few episodes this season but just kind of disappeared the last 3 weeks ("he was off-site for a conference") But Paget is back yet again, looks like as a regular.

Last week they made no mention of him, Kind of wondering the show will even acknowledge his departure. Would be completely stupid just to ignore his leave.

Yeah, the show's been kinda floundering for awhile. First you had the 2 or 3 seasons without Paget Brewster, then Shemar Moore left, then Gibson got fired...you've just lost too much of the character interplay for my tastes. Same thing that happened to SVU when Chris Meloni(followed shortly thereafter by Richard Belzer) left and where replaced by much less interesting or charismatic actors(like that wooden blonde chick they hired). Sure, the show kept going, and good ol' Ice-T gives it his best, but it still lost a lot of what made it good.
