Looks like Rob Lowe will be departing the West Wing at the end of the next season because of a salary dispute. Hopefully NBC will realize the error of their ways before this happens and give him a raise. Heck, if those stupid Friends can get $100,000+ per episode, Rob Lowe should be able to. Lowe is great on that show and Sam Seaborn is a wonderful character. I'll be sad to see him go, West Wing is far and away my favorite program on TV these days and I can't get enough of it.
