So he'll be in 5 out of 13 episodes. He couldn't work another 8 weeks (2 months) to finish off the season?
That's what I was thinking. An episode takes about a week. There are only 13 of them. He can't put his music on hold for a couple months then work on other projects the other 38 weeks a year?
Plus he is under contract so if they wanted they could force him to, which I would, but the conspiracy theory is that they said OK because of budget cuts.
Should have canceled it after three seasons.
