Life and work can get so ugly at the times when you just can’t stand your colleague or co-worker. Whether it is just extra large egos clashing or just a pure and simple dislike, working together gets that much harder when the person you’re working with is just too difficult to tolerate. Well, as you might imagine, same is the case with celebrities. There have been several instances where leading television series actors, who have delivered hit performances, have had to quit (or some were fired) their pet shows simply because working with one particular co-star, producer or writer, was just too much for them to handle. While many of these cases have been much publicized and talked about, some you may not be so familiar with. That said, here are 11 hit series television actors who quit shows due to intolerable feuds with co-stars.

1 Mark Harmon with Creator Don Bellisario - NCIS
CBS’s NCIS was a high-flying show once, voted the biggest television show by 2007. The show seemed destined for even greater heights; at least till the lead actor Mark Harmon started a feud with the show’s creator Don Bellisario. Though many of the details were strictly kept hush hush, it was pretty clear that both the actor and the creator were no longer on the same page. An epic behind the scenes stand off ensued and it all culminated into CBS choosing the actor over the creator, and fired Bellisario in an unprecedented move. It sure was good luck that the show didn’t crash and burn once that happened, but almost everyone agrees that it was Don’s early creative genius that kept the show alive, despite the backstage feuds and firings.
