Criminal Minds Cast Departures Affect Show’s Ratings

Criminal Minds has been on air for more than a decade now. The show is currently on its twelfth season and seems like the show is not as strong as it used to be. After a series of Criminal Minds cast departure, cancellation rumors are now being talked about more than ever before.

Criminal Minds cast member Thomas Gibson fired from the show

Who would have thought that Thomas Gibson who plays lead character Hotch will no longer be part of the show. Just the idea of it seems very far fetched especially during the first few seasons of the show. It was the same case when Criminal Minds cast member Shemar Moore, who also plays a lead role, left the series.

The hit series started its season 12 without Moore as he left the previous season. However, Gibson was still able to make some episodes for the show before being axed. According to a report by TV Series Finale, the actor was fired from the series.

Because of this unexpected event, many fans went on their social media accounts to air their disapproval and campaigned to boycott the series.

The departure of the main Criminal Minds cast members seemed like it significantly affected the show’s ratings. Inquisitr reported that the most recent episode without Gibson and Moore pulled in 7.73 million viewers. Although it is still a decent number, it is not for this kind of show.

Criminal Minds has proven its success factor over the past. It was ranked 11th in the list of all shows across all networks during season 10. The ranking is equivalent to 14.111 million viewers. All these stellar remarks was reached when Gbison and Moore was still on the show.

No one from the Criminal Minds team have spoken about the cancellation. However, it is not an impossible scenario.
