I realize his narcissism makes it impossible for him to remain out of the public eye...but, man, I wish Matt Lauer would just take his millions and go far, far away.

I quit this show very early on as it felt like torture porn to me. Apparently it was little better behind the scenes. (the stream of controversial actor departures should have tipped me off).

California's Department of Fair Employment and Housing wants to make a stand against sexual harassment in Hollywood. This past week, the agency took the bold step of filing suit against the various studios behind CBS' Criminal Minds as well as the executive producers of the series, which had its final episode in February.

 

The complaint filed in Los Angeles Superior Court discusses alleged sexual touching by Gregory St. Johns, who acted as a director of photography on the show. He's been the subject of court action already, but what makes this particular legal action so extraordinary is that California authorities have decided to go after The Walt Disney Company, ABC Signature Studios, CBS Studios and various individuals for what happened.

 

"With the aid of defendants, St. Johns created an unchecked intimidating, hostile, and offensive work environment on the set of Criminal Minds," states the complaint. "Protected by the executive production team — including showrunner Erica Messer, executive producer Harry Bring, executive producer John Breen Frazier, director Glenn Kershaw, and unit production manager Stacey Beneville — St. Johns continued his unlawful conduct for years. Defendants’ executive team not only had actual and constructive knowledge of St. Johns’ abusive conduct, they condoned it. No necessary steps to prevent sex-based harassment and discrimination were taken over the years, nor were appropriate corrective actions. Instead, the executives fired anyone who resisted or who tacitly evaded St. Johns’ advances or abuse."

I don't think you would be making that kind of comment if you had actually experienced sexual harassment.

Is Criminal Minds still on the air?!

 

I think it aired its' final episode earlier this year.

Oh okay. And what about the Law and Order of CBS, CSI? Is one of their 50 spinoffs still on?

 

They're all gone, although there was talk of a revival. Not sure if that will happen now.

I have, actually. I didn't treat it as a big deal.

It's just my personal choice. I never said anything about someone being harassed who didn't want it.
