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.”

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.

Chloe Lanier’s New Short Film ‘The Reveal’ Releases First Trailer

As previously reported, Chloe Lanier, the actress who plays naughty Nelle Benson on ABC’s General Hospital, has been busy at work on a special project. And while Nelle is upset having just been denied parole on the ABC soap opera, (something tells us nothing will stop her from getting out of the slammer), Lanier on the other hand has been very excited about her new short film, The Reveal.

The Reveal in which Lanier stars, co-wrote, and co-directed along with her boyfriend, Kevan McClellan also has some very familiar faces along for the ride from Port Charles and Genoa City. That’s because Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Josh Swickard (Chase, GH) are also part of the film.

The action takes place at a gender reveal party for a baby, and according to the loglines of the short: “Zoe and James are a young couple attending their new-age friends gender reveal party. As they attempt to find their place amongst the eclectic group of party guests and friends, unsung wishes and hidden resentments begin to surface within their relationship.”

Watch the trailer from Lanier below.

Then, let us know if you are intrigued to see the short film when its out via the comment section below.

WATCH: Jonathan Jackson + Enation’s New Music Video “The Days Are Evil”

Five-time Daytime Emmy winner from General Hospital, and former Nashville star, Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky, Ex-Avery) has released a new music video for the new single “The Days Are Evil” along with his band Enation.

The music video features shots of Jackson in a very dark incarnation, and the track will also appear on Jackson + Enation’s upcoming album due out later this fall, Ultraviolet Empire.

Jonathan says of the new album: “Our new album, Ultraviolet Empire, is a throwback record. It’s a record we played together live in the studio. Most of the songs are one take -just letting the band play.  It was amazing playing with our co-producer Colin Linden and capturing something so raw and visceral.”

This will be the band’s follow-up to their 2017 album  Anthems for the Apocalypse and their successful 2018 tour in Europe opening for Echo & The Bunnymen,

Check out the music video featuring Jonathan released this week below.

Then, let us know, should Lucky return to Port Charles for the Nurses’ Ball with his band and play a tune off the new album next spring? Will Jonathan come home to GH for a guest appearance? Will you be checking out the new music from him in the coming months? Comment below.

TODAY: Ron Carlivati’s Dad Appears on DAYS

Be on the lookout on Friday’s October 18th episode of Days of our Lives for one of the shows “superfans” who pops in Salem.  That is when the father of DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati appears as an extra on the NBC soap opera.

Carlivati Sr., who is very proud of his son, looks to be donning a medical lab coat as a physician in a photo shared on social media along with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), one of Salem’s most busy and most respected doctors.

Ron told SOD about his dad appearing on the show that he writes: “It’s funny because I’ve been in soaps for over 20 years and my dad would watch to see my name on the credits but rarely get into the show. Somehow, I don’t know what clicked in for him, he’s obsessed with Days of our Lives. He does not miss it.”

As to how his dad became an extra for the day: “We were at the studio and Albert Alarr, our co-executive producer, comes up and meets my parents and turns to my dad and says, ‘We’re gonna be shooting some scenes in the hospital next. How would you like to be in them?’ I honestly had no idea this was coming. I also fainted.”
