Kirsten Vangsness and A.J. Cook of Criminal Minds” are fighting for equal pay. The duo are seeking parity with co-stars Joe Mantegna and Matthew Gray Gubler for the CBS procedural’s 13th season and are currently at an “impasse” in contract negotiations. Deadline broke the story.
The source reports that the actresses are “willing to walk” if they do not receive the pay they deserve. This is completely understandable, especially since this is not the first time the duo have had this battle. Vangsness and Cook were in a similar situation in 2013. They were earning less than half of co-stars Gubler and Shemar Moore’s paychecks and held out for better agreements with ABC Studios, CBS TV Studios, and CBS.
It’s only right that Vangsness and Cook fight for what they deserve, but it’s sickening that this is the second time in four years they’ve had to do so. Also, CBS just went through a similar situation with Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch, who were earning significantly less than their co-stars on “The Big Bang Theory.”
Vangsness and Cook have appeared on “Criminal Minds” since its first season in 2005. Cook has been a series regular during its entire run, with the exception of Season 6. That was the year CBS dropped Cook and co-star Paget Brewster, leaving Vangsness as the only regular female character. Vangsness started as a recurring character in Season 1 and became a series regular soon after.
Unfortunately, pay parity is anything but a given for actresses. The aforementioned “Big Bang Theory” situation saw stars Bialik and Rauch hold out for equal pay before re-upping their contracts for two more seasons. The actresses were earning about $200,000 per episode, as compared to the $1 million their co-stars were making. Natalie Portman told Marie Claire UK that she made a third of Ashton Kutcher’s pay on “No Strings Attached.” Emmy Rossum, the main character of “Shameless,” demanded a raise in December. She and the rest of the cast had been paid less than co-star William H. Macy from the get-go. In May 2016 Robin Wright revealed her fight for better pay on “House of Cards.” “Claire Underwood’s character was more popular than [Frank’s] for a period of time,” she said. “So I capitalized on it. I was like, ‘You better pay me or I’m going to go public.’ And they did.”
In Hollywood women are often hesitant to go forward when they are paid less than men. In an industry this sexist, actresses may develop a bad reputation simply for demanding what they are entitled to. Plus, they are already making more money than some people will ever see in a lifetime, so actresses may fear that their concerns won’t be taken seriously, or they’ll be dismissed as being overpaid in the first place. But this isn’t about a certain profession’s pay grade; it’s about gender equality within the profession. As Jessica Chastain recently told Variety, “What I do now, when I’m taking on a film, I always ask about the fairness of the pay. I ask what they’re offering me in comparison to the guy. I don’t care about how much I get paid; I’m in an industry where we’re overcompensated for the work we do.” The “Zookeeper’s Wife” star added, “But I don’t want to be on a set where I’m doing the same work as someone else and they’re getting five times what I’m getting.”

Here’s what seven major studios have on tap during the annual TV market.
CBS Studios Intl.
Big bets are being placed on military dramas “Seal Team,” starring David Boreanaz, and “Valor,” featuring a fresh-faced cast. Summer series “Salvation” also has a military angle (albeit crossed with sci-fi), while both Jeremy Piven’s “Wisdom of the Crowd” and Alan Cumming’s “Instinct” mix crime solving and modern technology. The studio is light on laughs this year, with just one solo-produced comedy: “9Jkl,” based on the life of creator and star Mark Feuerstein.

Not just one but four new Marvel series will be on display, including the much anticipated “Inhumans” and the youth-skewing “Cloak & Dagger,” “New Warriors” and “Runaways.” And although it’s not based on a comic book, “Grey’s Anatomy” officially becomes a franchise, launching a new as-yet-untitled spinoff. Shonda Rhimes also makes her case with legal drama “For the People,” while »

Exclusive: Criminal Minds veterans Joe Mantegna and Matthew Gray Gubler have closed new deals to continue on the long-running CBS drama series, recently renewed for a 13th season. However, I hear Kirsten Vangsness and A.J. Cook are currently at an impasse in their negotiations as the actresses are seeking parity with their male co-stars. The duo, who are negotiating together, took a similar stand during the 2013 negotiations as the two at the time consistently had been… »
Criminal Minds is continuing into season 13 after a year that saw quite the cast shake-up. Season 13 might not quite right the ship when it comes to the cast, however. Deadline is reporting that Kirsten Vangsness and A.J. Cook's future with the show is a little uncertain. The reason for the hold-up is that the two actresses are looking for similar payment to their male counterparts. It's matter that has been in dispute for a quite a long time.

The marathon week of broadcast Upfronts is officially over. Though the week was jam-packed, per usual, if this year’s presentations seemed slightly less crowded — that’s because they were.
Overall, the networks had less new shows to present to the rooms of advertisers because series orders are down this year, as previously reported by Variety. Across the Big Four and the CW, just 38 new scripted shows were ordered for the 2017-2018 television season — vs. 42 series that were greenlit last year. In fact, this year’s orders marks the lowest tally in five years.
Here’s a look at the breakdown for each network’s 2017 vs. 2016 series orders.
Even with their big bet on the “American Idol” reboot, which will fill up time on their midseason schedule, the Alphabet was the only Big Four network to order more series than last year. The “Roseanne” revival is certain to get attention — despite the awkward banter among the »

Shemar Moore is back on CBS!
The 47-year-old star returns to the small screen in S.W.A.T., a one-hour drama inspired by the 1970s television series and 2003 film, as S.W.A.T. Sergeant Daniel “Hondo” Harrelson, who is tasked to run a specialized tactical unit in Los Angeles.
Moore, who played fan-favorite Derek Morgan on Criminal Minds from 2005 to 2016, spoke to Et’s Leanne Aguilera on the red carpet ahead of CBS’ Upfront presentation at Carnegie Hall in New York City on Wednesday, and opened up about his return to the network.
“CBS has been so good to me,” the actor said. “I started out as a baby daddy on Young and the Restless and then I got my baby girls on Criminal Minds, and now -- I just got a really good group of people. This is a team »
CBS packed Carnegie Hall on Wednesday afternoon with an upfront that played like one of its Tuesday action-dramas. It was slick, well-paced, a little hokey in parts, and the hero — broadcast television — won in the end.
By now, Leslie Moonves and Co. are a well-oiled machine when it comes to putting on the razzle-dazzle at the upfront. Kelly Kahl, the network’s longtime scheduling guru, did an able job filling in for CBS Entertainment president Glenn Geller, who is on medical leave. There is no media CEO who likes playing to a big crowd more than CBS Corp. chairman-ceo Moonves, and it shows every year. It didn’t hurt that this year CBS has some notable successes to show off, from the surge for Stephen Colbert’s “The Late Show” to the steady progress of “CBS This Morning” in chipping away “Today” and “Good Morning America’s” longtime advantage.

“Hello and welcome. I'm your host, Stephen Colbert,” the CBS late-night show, in top hat and tails, said at the top of CBS’s Upfront presentation, after executing one of those kitchy song-and-dance numbers that earned him rave reviews during election season political convention nights. “I want to welcome the whole CBS family,” Colbert said, especially naming the network’s “incredible affiliates and, of course, a special welcome to the hot new star of Criminal Minds, James… »
