In what is perhaps the most shocking and unexpected TV news of the day, Deadline Oxford is reporting that House M.D. star Lisa Edelstein (Cuddy) will not return to the show next season. Supporting cast members Omar Epps (Foreman) and Robert Sean Leonard (Wilson) both renewed their contracts this month to return for the eighth (and what is most likely going to be final) season. Edelstein was the only remaining cast member still in the negotiation process and has apparently decided not to return. There is no word on how her character will be written out of the show or if she will appear for the premiere of season eight to conclude her character’s story line.

But the silver lining is that the news will most likely soften the blow of recent CBS show cancellation, Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior. A spin-off starring Forest Whitaker to CBS’s hit procedural Criminal Minds was never really that good and the ratings were a testament to the fact that the series truly felt like a cash grab. It also didn’t help that unlike many of CBS’s spin-off series, this one had nothing new to offer to the franchise, not even a city. It was nothing more than another (and inferior) BAU unit going around the country to stop serial killers.

But there is some good news, CBS has picked up another season of CSI: NY. There’s not much else to say beyond that however.

Jumping over to The CW, three more series in addition to the recently announced Ringer have been picked up. They include Secret Circle, Hart of Dixie and H8ER. The network has renewed the amazing freshman spy series Nikita as well as the drama One Tree Hill. There is no other information on the shows to report at this time.

CBS and The CW are scheduled to announce their prime time lineups Wednesday and Thursday respectively.
