    Because he wanted a show of his own.

    It was regrettable that Michael Weatherly, whose original name was James James Morrison Morrison Weatherby George DuPree, was rumoured to have been having an affair with Jethro, played by Marc Harmon, while starring as Tony Di Nozzo on the set of television's NCIS. The story goes that Jethro was finishing a take by saying, "Wheels up in 1 hour" then, as the director yelled, "Cut!" Marc Harmon leaned over and whispered in Michael Weatherly's ear, ""Boots up in five" and somehow the audio wasn't off yet and the sound byte picked it up. Supposedly, when confronted with this, Weatherly yelled, "Bull!" so, instead of simply firing him from NCIS, they created a new show for him called Bull. And that's a Bull story.
