Criminal Minds: I received this note from Ed shortly after they surprised him with the cake. Thank you to all the Criminal Minds cast, crew, writers and staff that helped us with this birthday project!
THANK YOU! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!!
The cake is awesome (and delicious)! I can't begin to tell you how touched I am by this. The crew totally fooled me, too. It was a great surprise (though, frankly, they don't really sing all that well).
Thank you so much, everybody.
Criminal Minds Fans sent a custom made Chicago Bears Cake to Ed Bernero, Executive Producer of Criminal Minds, yesterday as a birthday present. Thank you to all the Criminal Minds writers and crew members that assisted in the planning and presentation of the cake to Ed. A special thanks to Debra J. Fisher, Co-Executive Producer and writer for Criminal Minds, for the wonderful pictures she took for us, so we could share the event with all of them. It was important to all of us that the cake be large enough for Ed to share with everyone in the studio. I've been told that that task was accomplished and there were even leftovers for them to enjoy today. Thank you to all my fellow Criminal Minds fans for their monetary contributions and gift suggestions. We have exactly 364 days left to figure out how to top this next year. Good luck to us!

Criminal Minds: Executive Producer Edward Allen Bernero is celebrating his birthday on Friday. Please join us in wishing Ed a very Happy Birthday and thanking him for everything he has done, and continues to do, for the show and the fans. We were blessed that Ed picked Criminal Minds to be his show. It would be impossible to list all the reasons the Criminal Minds fandom respects Ed but the one that sticks out most in my mind is seeing the pictures everyday during the WGA strike that Kris shot for us. Ed was always there. He didn't make token photo op stops to the line. He walked it with his fellow writers. They are a writing family and his loyalty to them, the show and to all of us should stand as an example of the proper way to be a showrunner. I hold him in high personal regard, as I know you all do, and I hope that his birthday is spent surrounding by his wonderful family, closest friends, his cast, crew, his writers and that he enjoys his special day.
Since he always gives us quotes, I picked one for him:
"Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don't turn up at all." - Sam Ewing
Thank you Ed for showing up and Happy Birthday!
Criminal Minds: Last night the Criminal Minds fandom had their introduction to Criminal Minds' newest writer, Breen Frazier.

Criminal Minds: Ed Bernero, Executive Producer of Criminal Minds, gave a very interesting interview to TV Guide. "I was thinking about all this because, right now, 10 episodes (in various stages of production) into the fourth season, Criminal Minds is having what I believe to be our best season yet. There are bombs and foot chases and shoot-outs and huge crashes and unexpected glimpses into our characters' pasts; we have scary locations and amazing guest stars like Jason Alexander, Luke Perry and Wil Wheaton. And, of course, we've got a menagerie of terrifying "unsubs" who will have you covering your eyes and watching through your barely open fingers. It's definitely exciting. I hope you'll get to understand a little bit of what it feels like to be a cop."

"In 2006, he put together his first Criminal Minds team for the “Start to Finish MS Bike Tour,” one of over 100 rides nationwide that raises awareness and funding for MS research. Moore and his team of 60 cyclists raced in the Southern California event the last two years and plan to bike again in the 2008 event scheduled for September. “Last year’s race raised more than $700,000 for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society,” Moore says. “After all these years of working out, it’s nice to be able to use a sport to give back.”

So my clothes are going to be staying on for this episode — so any of you that were looking to see me naked, you’ll just have to go to my fan Web site, which I think is NicholasBrendon.com [Webmaster note: It’s not; this is it.], and maybe there’s some naked pictures of me up there [Webmaster note: There isn’t -- yet.]"

Criminal Minds: "The Evilution of Frank" is on Wednesday August 20th.
This time it's personal when Gideon's (Mandy Patinkin) girlfriend is murdered by his nemesis Frank, an elusive and prolific serial killer. Gideon takes off to hunt Frank without telling the BAU and the team must profile Gideon as a suspect in order to find them both. Academy Award and Golden Globe winner Keith Carradine reprises his role as the sadistic serial killer, and Golden Globe Award winner Amy Madigan ("Carnivale" ) returns as Jane, the small town outcast who is seduced by the madman. Criminal Minds starring: Mandy Patinkin, Thomas Gibson, Shemar Moore, Matthew Gray Gubler, Paget Brewster, A.J. Cook and Kirsten Vangsness. Written by Edward Allen Bernero and Produced by Simon Mirren. Episode info courtesy of CBS. Originally aired May 16, 2007.
Criminal Minds: In addition to a wonderful regular cast, Criminal Minds always has great guest stars. In No Way Out II, we had four of them return to the show: Keith Carradine (Frank), Amy Madigan (Jane), Amanda Bernero (Rebecca Bryant) and Elle Fanning (Tracy Belle). It will be interesting to see who turns up as a guest star on Criminal Minds next season.
Criminal Minds: Amanda Bernero portrayed Rebecca Bryant in three Criminal Minds episodes. In "Fisher King, Part One" Rebecca was the victim the BAU was trying to save. In "Fisher King, Part Two" Rebecca was saved thanks to the wonderful fast thinking Dr. Spencer Reid, played by Matthew Gray Gubler. Unfortunately Rebecca Bryant was one of Frank's victims in "No Way Out, Part Two: The Evilution of Frank". Amanda did a wonderful job in all three episodes.
What I will never forget is the conversation in the chat room after NWO 2. Ed Bernero killed off his daughter's character was the theme for much of the chat. I asked Ed about this after the episode aired and he pointed out to me that Amanda had actually guest starred in more episodes than any other guest. Thank you to Stacy for the screencaps of Amanda.
Criminal Minds: Andrew Wilder, Criminal Minds writer of L.D.S.K., The Tribe, North Mammon, Ashes & Dust, Lucky and Elephant's Memory is celebrating his birthday this month. Please join us in wishing Andrew a wonderful birthday!
P.S. His first Criminal Minds season four episode, "Minimal Loss", has Luke Perry and Jeff Fahey guest starring! You know it is going to be awesome!

Criminal Minds: Happy Monday! Criminal Minds fans have gotten their first real taste of spoilers lately. The info from Matthew Gray Gubler, Dr. Spencer Reid on Criminal Minds, and then the release and worldwide internet distribution of three stills from "Mayhem". It was a great taste of what will surely be a terrific episode and the start of another great season of Criminal Minds! I would like to remind everyone that spoilers are not always what they seem to be. We've seen CBS promos of scenes before that never made it into the final episode. So spoil away, enjoy the hype and take this time to recruit new viewers! It's all about the Nielsen!

Criminal Minds: I want to share an email I received this morning from Ed Bernero, Executive Producer of Criminal Minds, because the emails I'm receiving from fans of the show all show concern that Criminal Minds is losing Ed.
"I'm not planning on leaving CM at all. I will always be involved with it though the day to day running of it may fall to one of my amazing Co-Executive Producers. CM is, and will always be, my first love. The other projects are, right now, just scripts. If they are picked up to pilot and/or series, we'll work the logistics out then. Either way, it won't be until next season." - Ed Bernero
Criminal Minds: Well now we have an answer to what is going to happen when A.J. Cook (JJ on Criminal Minds) takes her maternity leave. We have a Criminal Minds replacement on their way to pitch in.
"A.J. Cook's due date draws near, and I'm hearing that her character will be "having the baby in nearly real time," meaning that A.J. and J.J. will be giving birth all but simultaneously on TV and in real life.
And on that note, I can tell you that there will be a new liaison on the team while A.J. Cook is off on her maternity leave. Meta Golding is signing on for the gig, and she'll appear on the series beginning at the end of October. I'm told it's "really cute how she's introduced." But if you love your Jennifer Jareau, you can breath easy, because Meta is just filling in, and J.J. will be returning to the team when she's done baby-makin'!"- Reporting by Jennifer Godwin E!Online
Criminal Minds: Here are the Nielsen ratings for the week ending August 10th. Criminal Minds is once again in the top ten! Great job CM!
1. "Summer Olympics Open Ceremony," NBC,32.63 million viewers.
2. "Summer Olympics Sun Primetime," NBC,30.80 million viewers.
3. "Summer Olympics Sat Primetime," NBC,23.04 million viewers.
4. "America's Got Talent," NBC, 12.11 million viewers.

Criminal Minds: We all knew this would be the month that CBS started dropping major spoilers for the fourth season of Criminal Minds and here they come. Usually I don't just post them but since the internet is now full of them, I decided what the heck!
"We will learn a terrifying secret from Reid's childhood that explains why he's so attracted to serial killers. According to Matthew Gray Gubler: "I just read an episode that has an incredibly dark history for Reid. He had a terrible thing that happened in his childhood that comes out, causing delayed nightmares. It explains why he's so attracted to serial killers. The last page, I was like, it all makes sense. It's super dark...like cable-style dark. I'm sure the fans will hate it, and I'll love it."
According to Gubler, the secrets of Reid's childhood are revealed in part because of a Beverly Hills, 90210 alum. "They're everywhere these days!" Gubler told me. "We have an episode where Luke Perry plays a psychotic polygamist cult leader. I'm always getting held hostage by teen idols—first James Van Der Beek was a guest star and held Reid hostage, and this time it's Luke Perry. I actually saw Scott Baio out front, and I swear he looked at me. I want George Michael to hold me hostage in season eight." Hee. I love this guy. And suffice to say, Perry's character sets off Reid's nightmares, which lead him back into his very scary past.- E!online
Season four of Criminal Minds premieres Sept. 24 at 9 p.m. on CBS.

Criminal Minds: Ed Bernero, Executive Producer of Criminal Minds is staying busy. He is presently working on two new series: Hawaii Five-0 and he is also working with Jim and Tim Clements on another new show, "Washington Field". Jim Clemente is a current FBI profiler and a consultant for Criminal Minds. Washington Field is named after the elite Washington Field Office’s National Capital Response Squad (of which Clemente was a member). “If the police need help, they call them,” said Bernero, who is penning the project with brothers Jim and Tim Clemente. “It’s almost like ‘The A-Team,’ but it’s real.” -TWR
Criminal Minds: Edward Allen Bernero, Executive Producer of Criminal Minds, has announced his newest project.
CBS is saying aloha to a new installment of "Hawaii Five-O."
The new take on the popular crime drama, which aired on CBS from 1968 to 1980, is being developed by Ed Bernero, executive producer and showrunner of "Criminal Minds." He is such a big "Hawaii Five-O" fan that he has the Ventures' iconic theme song from the show as his ringtone.
Bernero is writing the project, which he describes as "'Hawaii Five-O' 2.0."
Like the original series, it chronicles the workings of the fictional Hawaiian state police department. In the original, the unit was headed by Steve McGarrett, played by Jack Lord. In the new series, McGarrett's son Chris will be the top cop.
