Wednesday night, fans of the CBS procedural drama Criminal Minds were in for quite the emotional ride and shocker, when longtime series star, Shemar Moore exited his beloved role as Derek Morgan.

The former Daytime Emmy winning star of The Young and the Restless, where he played Malcolm Winters, decided he wanted to spread his wings and look at new roles and opportunities in his career.

Moore’s exit episode drew 10.7 million total viewers with a 2.1 rating, rising 9 percent and two tenths and gave Criminal Minds its largest audience since November 26, 2014, and its best demo number in almost a year, according to TV Line.

Shemar told The Hollywood Reporter:  “The Young and the Restless gave me confidence and told me that I had a right to be here (In Hollywood).  ” got popular there, but I wanted credibility and to prove that I could act. What Criminal Minds did was help people see that I could handle drama — and keep my shirt on — and tell stories. Criminal Minds was college, and now I’m ready for grad school and the next step.”

As to if Moore would ever make a return visit to the CBS nighttime drama, he added, “I went back for two episodes [on The Young and the Restless during Criminal Minds]) and I would have done it for free — and the same goes with Criminal Minds. If they’ll let me come in and play for a while, yes. I’d love to come back.”

Moore gave his fans a special farewell video on his decision to leave, as well.   Watch it after the jump.  Then let us know, if you are sad that Shemar has exited Criminal Minds?  Do you hope he comes back to Y&R for another short visit?  What would you like to see Shemar do next in his career?

I think shemar should have his own show. I know he would make an excellent spokesperson n being so good at what he does he needs to venture out. Y&R could surely use him again if he chooses to go down that road again. Shemar u rock baby boy ! Oh maybe an actor doing movies but a talk show host sounds like the best road he could go down. Love u baby boy

No doubt, Shemar Moore is an accomplished and popular actor!

Yet, I will always hold a huge amount of respect and appreciation for him with the manner in which he announced Susan Lucci’s Emmy win (after 19 nominations). He exuded excitement and class, which made this deserved and heartfelt moment for Lucci and her fans even more poignant, satisfying, and special!

I quit watching Criminal Minds years ago because it was full of such ugly stories. But Shemar always seemed to have a brighter soul. So long past time for a change to put him into something more positive.

The broadcast’s executive producer, Ian Stewart, confirmed an opening number, when he previously told Deadline, the number “is going to be a lot of people participating, singing, rapping.  It’s hopefully going to be a very impactful start, a ton of fun.”

The Primetime Emmys will have nominees in attendance, with a more limited amount virtually, and those who have tickets can stay in the venue through the whole show, unlike the Grammys or Oscars were those nominated were ushered in and out.  Look for the Emmys to take place outside the theatre under a tent.
