Charlie Sheen is staying with 'Two and a Half Men'

After weeks of reports claiming that Charlie Sheen was ready to move on from CBS’ “Two and a Half Men" at the end of this season, it looks like the actor has had a change of heart. Sheen signed a new contract for the show yesterday.

"To put a fitting end on the two and one-half months of whirlwind speculation, I'm looking forward to returning to my CBS home on Monday nights,” Sheen's rep, Stan Rosenfield, told CNN in a statement on behalf of the actor.

The speculation began in April with reports that Sheen wanted out of the hit series, which has been on CBS for seven seasons. Rosenfield confirmed to CNN that the actor did tell friends he was ready to make an exit, adding that Sheen’s contract with Warner Bros. was up this year although CBS has contracted the show for at least two more seasons.

At the time, Rosenfield said Sheen was looking towards new horizons. "Charlie has done this for seven years,” Rosenfield said. “There are new things to do, new challenges. He wants to do more movies, and doesn't always get the opportunities during the hiatus [of the show]."

As "Two and a Half Men" approached it’s final episode of the season, more rumors began to circulate that Sheen was using the negotiation as a way to squeeze more money out of the network. But in a statement to People, Sheen denied those rumors, saying that he’d submitted his terms for an eighth season as far back as June of 2009.

“Both parties have known the score for over a year,” Sheen said in the statement.

    I am so happy Charlie is coming back I was really upset that he might leave the show – it would not be a show
    without him ! They still have lot of material they can go with – Jake still growing up and they could even
    do shows trying to "covert" Charlie and then how that would fail at times - win some and loose some ! ha ha
    I don't think he is a wife beater he picked a loser in Denise Richards and I believe he has another one –
    I am just a die hard Charlie Sheen fan – – love him – glad he will be back – and I really hope the reruns will still be
    on fox – if they have replaced them with How I met your Mother – big disappointment for me !
    I love 2 and 1/2 men !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! love Berta, Rose,Alan - all of the cast the Mom all of them they are all great !

    So why did Chuckie make a big deal out of the fact he wasn't coming back? PR? Grammar is pretty gosh darmed important in my book, especially since these peeps are getting paid to write for "America's most trusted news network"...As for those who say Chuckie's personal life doesn't matter, let's have convicted criminals as highly paid bout them apples? p.s. I saw Chuckie on Wall Street, and he was kinda cute...pps. John Hamm on Mad Men is much hotter...

    2.5 Men is still THE funniest comedy on non-cable, prime time TV...

    We enjoy the show, because it's funny and it's entertainment. And, we're not watching it to criticize or pass judgement on the lives of the actors on the show... Those who want to get off criticizing or passing commentaries should watch Oprah or something else instead and leave us in peace...

    American citizens charged with crimes, Charlie Sheen included, are presumed innocent until proven guilty. We don't banish them from their livelihood on the basis of a mere accusation, especially when the person making that accusation later retracts it.

    If you don't like the show, fine. If you don't like Sheen, fine. But please stop putting your stupidity and ignorance on display for the whole world to see.

    If this is not a clear indication that money outweighs everything, nothing is. He is a clear draw for this show, the producers of the show haven't the courage to try it without this loser, and, therefore, money wins. Television just keeps on setting great examples for our kids. Wake up Mrs. Sheen. If he battered you once or threatened to kill you, he'll do it again.

    Larry says, "We all need a job. His is beating spouses and moonlighting as a TV person."

    The sad thing is the fact that so many people "accept" this from the liberal wackos of La-La Land.

    Their "respective start" didn't mean to do it or was provoked, or was drunk or was________________(fill in the blank)!

    No responsibility for their actions. The new American way.
    God forbid we should question their actions...even at the expense of one being hurt. These "wackos" are special and we need to give them more "space" than "ordinary" people!

    My favorite show that CANNOT survive without Charlie Sheen. Some episodes are better than others – yesterday I enjoyed the surreal marijuana intoxication of poor Charlie, the farting contest on the way to Sacramento not that much...

    Well, nothing is 100%. Will Chelsea come back? We are anxious to know although Charlie the philanderer is much more fun than almost -married Charlie or Charlie in depression.

    Berta is the best. Looking forward to another season.

    Thanks Charlie. If it makes any difference, yours is the only sitcom I go out of my way to watch. The reason for this is simple, no one writes them or directs them like your gifted team on Two & a half men. Your show is the only one that actually makes me laugh out loud while watching it. Time was a lot of sitcom's would do this but not anymore. Before I go to bed each night I watch a rerun episode of your show, its important for me to end my day on a lighter note. Your shows allows me to go to bed with a smile on my face. So I hope you will stay on with the show until Jake does graduate.
    Many thanks again for saying yes to another year or so because without you and your show life will become more humorless.

    I love 2 1/2 Men, and am so glad that Charlie is returning to the show. But since Jake has grown up, Alan has taken over the 1/2-man role. Seems like the older Jake gets, the more childish Alan gets. I don't like his character, and would not miss him if he left.

    Yeah! Charlie and his show are the funniest thing on tv and has been for years. He is a natural. Not some slap stick crap of sit-coms of years gone by. It all comes off like we are peeking in on their lives rather than being asked to believe the garbage they used to write for other big name comics. No hesitation in the script, waiting for the reaction to anything. Just rolls along with its own cadance. Good for Charlie.....I would hate Monday nights without "Two & a Half Men. Am also enjoying the nightly reruns. I could watch them 24/7.

    Love your impersonation of Jack in "The Shining!" You should seek professional help. "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy!"

    What Charlie Sheen does in his personal life is between him, his soon to be ex-wife, his lawyer, the judge and/or a jury of his peers. His acting is another thing, and I give him a big thumbs up!

    I've loved this show for years and I've seen every episode. I'm glad that he's returning. I just wish that they'd work on the writing now. The show has been going downhill lately in my opinion. I'm not a big fan of watching Charlie sulk in "after Chelsea" blues. Bring Mia back, or better yet, bring back the string of hot one night stands. If he's going to settle down, let it happen in the series finale two years from now.

    I could not get into the show, but after the first time, I have continued to watch it and even watch the re-runs. It gets better each time.
    I faithfully watch it every night. In regards to his personal life, that
    is just it, it is personal and the news media takes everything out of
    preportion. How many stars don't do what they said he did. Not too many I am sure. You can't let that kind of thing cloud your judgement

    The apostrophe in "it's" is grammatically correct because "it's" while usually referring to the contraction of "it is" is also a possessive-which it is in this case. The "it's" refers to the final episode, which belongs to "Two and a Half Men"

    I may the only person alive who cannot stand Charlie Sheen. I find him not funny and frankly disgusting. I stopped watching "Two and Half Men" because of him. What I find most interesting about this show is the fact that with all the problems that he has had with women and alcohol in his personal life that they almost always show him with a different woman and a beer in his hand. He is condensing to all around him, which only mirrors his personal life. Oh well, that is just my opinion and I do not watch the show anyway.

    The personal lives of Charlie, Tiger or David are just that.. thier own personal lives. The decisions of the the networks to continue them on television or the companies to continue them as endorsements are based on public demand and profit. It may be a double standard of sorts but the people speak and dictate the decisions that are made.

    I love the show, always have and watch reruns everyday. The whole Monday night line up is good and most especially the Big Bang Theory. We need a little korn and laughter to give us a boost before the late news comes on...

    CBS has the best comedies on tv and Two and a Half Men is one of the funniest. Charlie Sheen does a good job on the show and he is a funny man. Having said that, Charlie Sheen the man is an idiot who should keep his mouth shut and his hands off of his women.

Seriously, with all this harshness about a tv show, that some of us love and obviously some of you hate, even though perhaps you have never watched it before (?)

    Sheen is lucky to have a job, considering all the negativity that has gone on in his life. 30 years ago, if he displayed any of that type of behavior, he'd have been fired because the audience had morals. Thanks to the decline in church membership and poor parenting, Charlie has a job.

    This is the most disgusting, filthy, degenerate show ever aired and I will continue to watch it to the bitter end. I love it. Big Bang is also hilarious and what makes both shows is the perfect melding of the cast much like Mash 4077 was. I have the most admiration for Alan on 2 1.2 men because he has a greater range of acting ability than Charlie. Yes, bring back Kandi. Brian, your shorts are too tight.

    Totally aside from whether this is news or not, CNN, PLEASE hire some competent copy editors! Inexcusable for you to be posting third-grade level mistakes on what is supposedly a professional jourrnalistic website. The posessive form of "it," meaning, "belonging to it," does NOT have an apostrophe in it. Spelling the word with an apostrophe makes it into a contraction of "it is," rather than "belonging to it." This is such a low-level mistake you ought to be ashamed of yourselves.

    @Brian – Wow, if you're not watching CBS you're basically not watching 3/4 of actually interesting TV on any more. Other than Castle ABC has nothing(Grey's is terrible now and Private Practice is watchable but not recordable) and while NBC has Trauma, Chuck and Community their lineup pales in comparison to what CBS has to offer – USA and TNT are both creating shows better than most of what ABC and NBC are putting out so maybe you don't need any more filler but Fox only provides so much with Bones so I'd think you're wasting time on Bravo/MTV/Lifetime if you've completely forsaken CBS.

    "As 'Two and a Half Men' approached it’s final episode..." should be "its."

    Actually "it's" is correct as the use of the word "it" is as a possesive reference of the "final episode" for 'Two and a Half Men' thus justifying the apostrophe."

    ACTUALLY Lee, the possessive word "its" never has an apostrophe (this is one of the all too common exceptions to the rule in english) however the contraction form "it's" formed from "it is" is proper.

    But, when will Allen finally come out of that closet he's been in for the last seven years? The change in character could surely breathe new life into the fabric of the show.

    I think the difference between Charlie and Tiger is Charlie admits to his faults and doesn't hide from them. You know what you are getting with Charlie. With Tiger, he portrayed himself as something he is not.

    Jeff ~ if you don't like the show, fine. That doesn't give you any right to put down those that do watch. Turn on your favorite show on PBS and leave us alone while we are laughing out loud.

    Jay Howard ~ keep your political statements to yourself, this is the "Entertainment" page. And while I find pretty much anything that GWB did hilarious, many don't, and this isn't the forum for it.

    Honestly, did anyone really expect Charlie to walk from a bizzilion dollars an episode? He has an ex-wife (probably 2 now) and 18 kids to support now! He can't do that on unemployement. He needs to work, keep his name on a show (and out of the tabloids), and make nice with the other people. I LOVE this show and I'm glad to see him come back.

I have seen politicians resign because they had one indescretion or stole money and they loss their jobs!!! we persecute the wrong people. Charlie Sheen is funny its true but that shouldnt excuse the fact that he has no respect for his wife or even his own children when he behaves like the way he does in front of them.

    OK so lump him in with the rest of the degenerates who have major flaws in their personal lives. But, when it comes to his WORK, he's a real genius. He's no different than you or I. We have our professional persona and our personal life persona. Should we be fired from our jobs because we make really poor choices in our personal lives? If so, the unemployment rate would probably hover right around 100%. His behavior in his personal life is ridiculously shameful and cowardous if true. Just because celebrities are public figures, many of them are just like many of us; screwed up people. The only difference is they happen to have lots of money. Charlie Sheen is no different. He's a screwed up individual who just happens to have money and fame.

    To Lee "Actually "it's" is correct as the use of the word "it" is as a possesive reference of the "final episode" for 'Two and a Half Men' thus justifying the apostrophe.

    Actually, Steve is right. Only the contraction of "it is" uses the apostrophe. This is one case where the possessive does not.

    Just goes to show you that the endorsement contract requirements are generally not the same as the TV series contract requirements. Simple as that. A little like the behavior requirements for pro athletes.

    I always found myself just watching the reruns around 7pm. I thought it was hilarious, but that was mostly becuase of the jokes that went over Jake's head. The writers were masterful at coming up with those types of jokes/situations and Charlie was brilliant at pulling it off. However, I have avoided watching the episodes where Jake has "grown up" because I just can't imagine they can produce the same chemistry. And the stalker girlfriend(forget name) was one of the best parts of the show for the first few years, but then started to get a little tiring.

    I am sooooo happy that there is another season coming up!!! There would have been nothing on television to watch. This show is so funny and the antics of Alan make it worth watching. I could not imagine fall coming without "Men".

    Anyone else ever notice how they tout this show as being the number one comedy on TV but the general consensus is that it is rarely watched? Its ratings trickery at the expense of the far superior Big Bang Theory. By extending the air time slot on Two and a Half Men by two minutes (more commercials, not more show), it runs past the half hour mark and into the first minute of Big Bang Theory, capturing the ratings data for those folks that are tuning in for that show.

    Mr. Sheen ain't that popular. Oh, and can two people not look any more like brothers? I'd bet Emilio Estevez is available.

    "As 'Two and a Half Men' approached it’s final episode..." should be "its."

    Very good that Sheen is sticking around. Just got into the show and find it to be outlandish and that was what made it so entertaining. Charlie's lifestyle is what I want to aspire to!

    That's great. I really like that show and I have enjoyed watching Jake grow up. What about Charlie's hair? He shaved his head.

    This is B.S. This guy can beat his wife and still get this kind of work???? But Tiger cheats on his wife and lose endorsements. Even that SOB late night host can get work even after his cheating scandal. this seems like a double standard to me.

    Then why did you read the article Brian?

    I'm glad he's staying. This show is hilarious, I don't know how many more seasons they can keep it going without ruining it though.

    Who cares. I've never watched this show and still won't. CBS usually has all the boring shows anyway.
