IT’S an epi­demic. Never be­fore have tele­vi­sion net­works had to con­front so many of their key stars quit­ting hit shows. The US ver­sion of The Of­fice is set to lose Steve Car­rell, House will be with­out Lisa Edel­stein (Cuddy), Lau­rence Fish­burne has just an­nounced he will quit CSI and Marg Hel­gen­berger has in­di­cated she will leave be­fore the next sea­son ends.

In April, it was re­ported that Matthew Mor­ri­son wants to dump Glee to pur­sue his singing ca­reer.

Med­i­cal drama Grey’s Anatomy has al­ready en­dured the de­par­ture of Kather­ine Heigl.

Now there are re­ports Pa­trick Dempsey is set to aban­don the show. Dempsey has re­vealed he has been in ro­bust dis­cus­sions with Grey’s Anatomy ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer Shonda Rhimes about his fu­ture on the show.

Go­ing, gone: From bot­tom left clock­wise — Steve Carell, Matthew Mor­ri­son, Marg Hel­gen­berger, Lau­rence Fish­burne, Lisa Edel­stein and, (cen­tre) Pa­trick Dempsey.
