Jorja Fox Says Sayonara to "CSI"

jfox.jpgWhen "CSI" ended last season, the fate of lab tech Sara Sidle was up in the air, both on and off the screen. Viewers were left wondering whether the character would survive, especially since the actress that plays her, Jorja Fox, had not yet renewed her contract. According to Entertainment Weekly, Fox finally made up her mind and will leave the hit show by the end of the year.

Fox will continue to star as her character until the end of 2007, after which she will exit the show. It seems like both sides compromised. CBS didn't kill her off and Fox gets to cash in on the show for a little longer.

Obviously, producers left the story open depending on how contract negotiations developed. Last season's cliff-hanger saw Sara trapped under a car in the middle of the desert, no thanks to the diabolical Miniature Killer. If you watched last week's season premiere (and don't read any further if you haven't), the team finally found Sara dehydrated and barely alive. At the end of the episode, a clearly distraught Grissom holds her hand as she opens her eyes.

Too bad Fox didn't want to stick around. The show actually beat "Grey's Anatomy" last week in total viewers. -- Chris Sardelli

Of course it beat Grey's Anatomy, most fans tuned in hoping to see Sara die. Good riddance, she won't be missed by this fan.

Speak for yourself Dee W. For every one person that wants to see her leave there are 10 who love her and want to see her stay.

It's not over yet. Many fans are trying their best to convince CBS to keep Jorja Fox. There is a Dollars for Sense campaign that has gotten a great response. For more info, go here. www . dollarforsense.com/index.html
And you can sign the petition to keep Jorja on CSI here. www.petitiononline.com/9kjfocsi/petition-sign.html
There is also a flyover campaign going on. A banner was flown over CBS studios on Tueday at 10am, and will be flown over again on Thurday at 10am, and next Tueday at 10am. If you'd like to support Jouja Fox, please check these places out. Thanks. :)

silly sara, never get another chance like this. a hit show, going from side lines to prime character. Still $100,000 per episode when marg h. earns $350,000 doesn't sound fair.

Is every writer the same, or are there particular things you should be looking for when hiring a writer? ,

It would be nice, especially as four of these five people come back to Kansas to campaign for re-election, to be able to get them to elaborate upon what their votes meant. ,
