Probably For The Best.

Janet Hubert - The original Aunt Viv in the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air was fired from the show after violating her contract by getting pregnant. She wasn't written off but she was replaced by Daphene Maxwell Reed in the last 3 seasons. Also because she hated Will Smith (actor) and they would frequently disagree with each other. Will Smith would make a lot of jokes on the color of her skin. Like. 'No one's going to believe you're the mother to these kids, you're too dark.' (Source)

Jail Break.

Tommy Chong left "That 70's Show" because he went to jail for 9 months for selling bongs. In jail he was cell mates with Jordan Belfort (as portrayed by Leo DiCaprio in "Wolf of Wall Street"), and Chong was one of the major influences convincing Jordan to write his book. Tommy Chong would later reprise his role as Leo on "That 70's Show" after getting out of jail. (Source)

"Did I Do That?"

When Family Matters first aired, it was a spin-off of the show Perfect Strangers, following Harriett Winslow and her husband Carl- a typical middle-class black family, having the kinds of difficulties that normal middle-class black families face. Then, a few episodes in, they introduce the nerdy, obnoxious neighbor Steve Urkel. Before long Urkel was such a hit that the show eventually became all about Steve and his wacky adventures. Gone was the down-to-earth show about a typical black family doing typical black family things, and in its place was a show about a man-boy genius creating wacky inventions and traveling through time, cloning himself, and having other crazy adventures. In the end, the woman that played Harriett (the entire reason the show existed, remember) quit because she couldn't stand what the show had become. (Source)

William Hartnell left Doctor Who because he had arteriosclerosis and his health was declining to the point where he couldn't keep up with a TV acting schedule. The producers came up with the idea that the Doctor could regenerate into a new body, because the show was doing well and they wanted to keep it going. Hartnell was apparently the one who suggested Patrick Troughton should take over the role. So ultimately Hartnell's illness inspired the premise gimmick that would make the show (and its hero) effectively immortal. (Source)

Michael O'Hare, who played Jeffrey Sinclair in Babylon 5, left the show due to suffering from psychological issues (paranoia, hallucinations, etc). They wanted to put the show on hiatus while he sought treatment, but he insisted be written out so the show could go on without him while he got help. The shows creator agreed to keep his condition a secret till after O'Hare's death (at his request). (Source)

Don't Get On Their Bad Side.

On 'Sliders', John Rhys-Davies (The Professor) was killed off due to insulting a newer Fox Executive at a party years before, or around the time the show first started. That same Fox Executive later was given control of a segment of Fox's programming that 'Sliders' was under. He saw that John was acting in the show, and was able to convince Fox and Universal to fire him. He was fired most unceremoniously in front of the cast and crew. To kill off his character, they drained him of brain matter, shot him in the heart, and left his body on an exploding planet. (Source)

Paz De La Huerta was fired from Boardwalk Empire because during a nude scene her tampon string was showing. She was told to hide it or get rid of it, she pulled it out in front of the crew and threw it on the floor, then told a PA to pick it up, which was the end of her. (Source)

The saddest for me was John Ritter being written out of 8 Simple Rules when he died. Scrubs too. I thought it was sweet that they addressed it even though it would have been just as easy to just not have JD's dad visit again. (Source)

The original owner of the store on Sesame Street was a wonderful, kind old man named Mr Hooper. The actor who played him died, and rather than quietly write him out, Sesame Street had a whole show explaining he died. I cried. Saddest TV moment of my young life. (Source)

Billy the Blue Ranger (David Yost) wasn't fired from The Power Rangers, but he randomly walked off the set during his lunch break one day and never came back. Turns out, the crew had been harassing him for years about his sexual orientation and he'd been contemplating suicide. After he left the show, he put himself in conversion therapy for two years, then finally accepted his sexual orientation after a psychological breakdown. (Source)

A Bit Too Developed.

One of the many reasons that Punky Brewster was cancelled is because the star of the show, Soleil Moon Frye suffered from a condition called gigantomastia, literally giant breasts, and had a breast reduction surgery prior to her 16th birthday to reduce her 38DD to a more manageable size. The actress developed so quickly and so large that the producers felt there was no way they could reasonably portray her character age-appropriately. (Source)

They told us Steve left to go to college. He really left because the actor was going bald. (He also had some musical interests he wanted to explore, but the actor said, "Mostly because I refused to lose my hair on a kid's TV show, and it was happening fast.") I missed Steve so much. Blue's Clues wasn't the same after that. (Source)
