Agreed on everything here.

Pierce certainly has his moments of greatness, but he's the most inconsistent character on the show.



I had no hopes for Season 5 to begin with, so this doesn't really change that. His departure may bring the cost down enough for it to be a consideration, though...NBC is going to have a lot of shows to replace next year so sticking with it (at an even further reduced budget) may be in the cards just out of convenience...but I'm not holding my breath.
