The show's creators posted an open letter on the net today talking about it; it was really quite nice. They could have just shipped him to Seattle (nice shout-out to Clooney/Marguiles on ER), but everyone would just be waiting to see if and when he'd come back, and how awesome their big reunion would be.

I did like their relationship a lot, so part of me is sad to not have that possibility again. On the other hand, I like the changing dynamics of her relationship with Peter, and it looks like this is going to bring on some more interesting interactions.

If they ever kill off Diane, I'm out of here.

Do soaps actors have onset professional help for actors that might need it? An actor may lose touch with reality while acting the same character day in day out including when actor has a heavy storyline

Right now I am sitting in my lounge room, having had a really great night out on the town, and my housemates are on their 7th straight episode of Bones. In this episode one character has a butterfly lodged in his neck. I know, because I asked my housemates what it was, and they said "butterfly" with not even the slightest sense of self-awareness that this is the worst fucking show ever to air on television. Literally the major plot point of this episode has been this fuckwit with a butterfly lodged in his neck. And there's absolutely no irony whatsoever, this is apparently a completely acceptable plot. Please kill me.

One of those shows I don't necessarily hate but that I find completely unwatchable.

honestly it's unbelievably awful. the actors are pretty crap, but it's the absolutely horrendous writing that tops it off. like seriously, it's that bad.

I'm not sure I know what Bones is. I watched six or so episodes of the killing with my housemate at work the other night. That show was pretty bad too, funny bad at least.

So, Letterman announced his retirement in 2015. Kind of figured it was coming sooner rather than later after Leno retired.

Early reports say CBS is interested in Colbert to take over 11:30 on CBS.

The country is obviously most familiar with him as his Colbert Report "character", the right-wing riff, and I assume if he took over for Letterman he would just be himself. So that would be kinda interesting.

Can't imagine Colbert being satisfied with that type of setup. And while it would be a huge payday, it's not like he's not doing well on Comedy Central. Probably making almost as much as Jon Stewart at this point.

That would be uncomfortably strange, I imagine. Kinda figure it will also tank after the novelty wears off.

If I were CBS, I'd still want Stewart out of the two Comedy Central guys. I feel like he'd have more appeal to a wider demographic, and is a more known quantity as far his interviewing skills go(since Colbert the character as an interviewer might not have much to with Colbert himself as an interviewer). But maybe Stewart's not interested?

Here's a wildcard: how about Conan? He found a home on TBS, but it's still basic cable. His current contract runs through November 2015, so a little later than you'd like if you're CBS looking for a replacement. But if they came knocking with an 11:30 network time slot, does Conan say no? I think it'd be tempting to him, but also knowing his personality, he probably feels a degree of gratitude/loyalty to TBS for giving him that opportunity when really no one else had time/room for him on their schedules after he left NBC, and for giving him basically free reign there. Actually, now that I think about it, given that Conan owns his show and the 12:30 show(it's Pete Holmes now, right?), chances of him leaving are probably slim. And would CBS even be interested in a former Tonight Show host, particularly with all of the events that occured in 2010?
