Criminal Minds: Good Morning Everyone! Welcome to a new day. It is a new day and a fresh week. I am sure that this week is going to be eventful in the Criminal Minds world and when it is I will let you know what is happening to the best of my ability.

To the new viewers of this blog: Please join with us in support of the show and our continuing prayers for everyone that is involved in this difficult situation. We would welcome your membership and participation in our Criminal Minds Fanatic Website. There is a link on the left of the front page of the blog.

While we wait for news we need to remember that there is a great repeat this week. Tune in for that. It is a great episode. Our normal chats will continue and I was thrilled with so many new members being involved the chat yesterday. We enjoyed having you with us and hope you will join us again.

To the staff and crew of Criminal Minds: All my love and support....always! You are the best and the brightest in the industry and I have no doubt that you will continue to handle yourselves with the same grace and excellence that you have displayed for the past two years.

I have already received hundreds of emails to deliver to the cast and crew in a few weeks. They are full of positive energy and love. I know they will be appreciated. It enriches my spirits just receiving them.

To a special new friend: I did step away from the computer yesterday. I went shopping. Thank you for worrying about me. I am fine. You take good care of yourself and I will do the same.

To the media: When I find out how you got your hands on my personal unlisted home telephone number I am going to have a whole lot to say to you. Of that you can be assured. I am always good to my word. If you want a statement of any kind you need to contact CBS. No exceptions. Why you would want to ask me anything in the first place boggles my imagination. I am just a lady with a blog.

All my best to all of you,

Good morning from me as well!

I agree with Lin. What a wonderful picture of you and Kirsten to start our day with. Thank you.

Promise to take many more pictures when you go back in a few weeks. We could all use the boost in morale.

Have a great week everyone!

MP: Say something please and soon.

I would pay big bucks to have you talk to the press. I want you to speak to them for all of us they screwed to the wall.

Good morning right back at you!

I will chip in with B.J. and help pay you to talk to them. Seriously! I want you to tell them that their lack of honesty is disgusting at best and that we love the show, Mr. Bernero and the cast and crew and that if they can't report the news correctly then will won't EVER read another word they write or buy their magazines or read them on the web. Tell them that for us. Lying comes with a price tag attached to it. Even my toddler knows that.

Good Morning,

Jill, hope you really rake them over the hot coals!

As for the picture, such a warm way to start the day. You both look like long time friends.

Have a great day!

I am waiting on pins and needles to read something from the network and Mandy. Please do print it asap when you get your hands on it. Thanks.

Jill: Do you know how Kirsten is? Have you been in contact with her? Please send her our love.

Good morning right back at ya and to everyone else.

I was glad to know the chats will continue. I had just joined the message board so that I could participate in this week's chat. I want to be a part of the group and when all this happened I worried you would shut everything down.

I have always been a lurker but I will change now and post to support the show. I love Criminal Minds. How do I get your email address to send you support letters for the crew?

Good Morning - although technically it's afternoon over here - Jill and all you guys!

Jill, I admire your strenght so. Hope you're well!

Guys, Jill is right. New beginnings are always good:)

Also, great pic of Jill and Kirsten.

Good afternoon here actually but well wishes to all certainly.

Please do send our very best love and kisses to Kirsten. This picture has put an enormous smile on my face.

I love how positive you always are. I wish you could bottle your energy and send me a case of it.

Great day all!

I laugh at the time differences. I have only just gotten up and sent the kids off to camp.

Good whatever time it is to my CM friends.

I hope they make their statements soon. It is easiest when a bandaid is riped off quickly rather than slowly.

Kisses to all. I'm watching on Wed.

Good morning to those who just got up and good afternoon to everybody who lives in my time zone. ;)

I enjoyed the chat last night/afternoon and I'm very glad I joined the board a few days ago. I will try to attend the chats regularly now.

Jill, thanks for the great picture, it made me smile. I admire your strength these days. A big e-hug from Germany is on its way to you.

It was a fact checker and if you had not been so rude you would have known that.

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to say good morning and to let everyone know that Scott David has agreed to let me come into the office and shadow him!! I really have to thank him (I hope you're reading this Scott) and Jill as well for helping make this happen. It'll be a great opportunity for me to learn more about this business from a casting standpoint.

I will surely say a big "Hello" on behalf of everyone.

Have a good week everyone!

This makes how many days without a statement from Mandy?

Okay. You want positive. I am positive that I am furious at his lack of a statement.

And while I am ranting I would also like to know when we can expect to hear from CBS on this horrible situation.

My love to all my CM friends and to our lovely cast. Kirsten's picture with you always gives me joy. My best to all of them.

Kirsten said...

Good day, y'all.
Jill, I'm glad you are okay.
Thanks for the pic.
We need KV's bright smile today.
Will not miss this weeks show.

Good morning Kirsten, Jill and everyone. It seems like waiting for the other shoe to drop to me. I wish they would just make their statements and let us move on but I would guess they are not ready yet. Patience is required.

Well said, Jill. Hugs from Q and I.

Great pic of you and Kirsten. Hope she and rest of cast and crew are doing well on this new dayl

So funny to read you all say good morning when I am setting me hair to go out to dinner with the hubby in a bit. Love the show, love you all and go CM!

Anonymous said...

OMG you should have commented. Fact checker. You should have told him he/she does a lousy job checking their facts and that they deserved to be fired.

I believe that this show is going to go down in history as the MOST fan friendly television show. During all this shake up the producers and those around them are still welcoming extra bodies onto the set with open arms. What a way to make us fall in love all over again!

I am beyond excited to see what the writers will come up with for Season 3. I have nothing but 100% confidence in them.

Lee :)

Great news Kris. I am so glad that this worked out for you. I was so happy when Scott agreed on the board to let you do this. It was before they took their vacation and honestly I had forgotten about it. Congrats.

Whatever else happens this week the show will still be great. I am thrilled that our writers are all back and I wish them well.

Good evening to all.

Love the pic of you and KV!

Kisses to all and I am going to be glued to my tv on Wed.

Any idea when CBS or Mandy will say something.....anything?

Psycho is a great episode. You are so right. I loved it. We're okay.

Great news about Kris. Good afternoon to all. I have had time to clear my thoughts and I think now that the shock is gone I can confidently say that I am okay with all of this. Mr. Bernero is in charge and he will make season three awesome.

good evening Jill! Ok I'm last to the party again, but my computer is having a fit....fingles crossed for me!!!

That pic of you and KV is lovely. And yes, starts the week off very nicely :-)

Well done Kris on your forth coming Shadowing...i've been a lurker up to now, not really posting, but I've been watching so I know this is going to be good for you. All the best with that!

not just ANY LADY...a very special, and considerate one, with an amazing, friendship building, informative, honest blog!

Long may she reign

Pictures of Kirsten always brighten my day!

Yes, it is the dawning of a new day for our favorite show. Here's to the all the great people who work together to put on the best show on TV! They are all the best. I am looking forward to great shows next season.

And to the reporter/fact checker, whoever you are--get a clue! If someone called me on my private, unlisted home phone, I wouldn't give you the time of day either.

Jill, you did absolutely the right thing. Ed Bernero wanted to share a message with the show's fans and he did so through you. But, CBS, the show's production company and Mandy should be the only people talking to the press on this matter. They are the only one's who have all the facts in this situation.

Elizabeth said...

Great message Jill and you are more than just a lady with blog - you are a lovely lady with a lovely blog and a great friend.

Kris--how could I forget you! Congratulations on getting to work with Scott Davis! That is GREAT news. I hope this is the beginning of great things for you!

Well I just read the press releases and you are right that it is a new beginning. That is okay by me. I stand firmly behind Mr. Bernero and he is a big man so I am pretty safe back there. I am only 5'2". LOL. I thought we could all use a good laugh. Thank you Jill, Thank you Ed, Thank you CBS!

It is all good. The show can only be better if an unhappy person is gone.

If you can show me pictures of Kirsten's bright smile when you get back from visiting then I will put all my hostile feelings aside and call it a new day.

Now it long past time for me to go to bed. Night everyone.

Anonymous said...

I tried to call you rather late your time I guess and you weren't there. I just wanted to check on you. Call when you can and know that the the bridge club will never hold a game on a Wed. night. We will all be glued to the set.

I was telling someone at work about this, and they couldnt believe it. I wanted to be on the chat on Sunday, but I had church, and couldnt be there. Will be there Wednesday though. With my early start times now at work, I no longer have to record CM and watch it later as I will be off when its on! Yeah!

Ztivokreb said...

just wanted to let you know you're doing a fantastic job here...and give those vultures hell for infringing on your private life.

How do you keep such a positive outlook on life and how to juggle everything that you juggle?

Jill, I hope you are doing well. My computer crashed and I am finally happy to be on your blog again. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

More thoughts and prayers go out to the wonderful cast and crew of CM, even to Mandy. I hope they are all doing well. I will still be a CM fan until the end.

Much love, thoughts, and prayer

i would advise everyone to take anyything you hear through the print or TV media with a HUGE grain of salt
as long as the quality of performances and the writing continues I will continue to whole heartedly support the show
and I have ABSOLUTELY NO DOUBT that quality will continue

Another week Ms. Jill and we seem to have fared lately without any new dramas. Mr.Bernero's comments on the blog certainly have gone a long way to helping quiet down the fans. Thank him for us and cbs too!
