This is the type of news that reinforces the adage, "all publicity is good publicity."
Since actor Charlie Sheen had a headline-making stay at the Plaza in New York and confirming that he's heading back to divorce court, ratings for Sheen's CBS hit "Two and a Half Men" have gone up.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the show saw a 7 percent increase for Monday's episode, with 13.6 million tuning in.
Sheen was back on the "Two and a Half Men" set Tuesday.
Aston just doesn't have what it takes....he is awful....the show isn't funny at all.....And I think Chuck needs to admit this one is a flop....BIG TIME.....I want Charlie....I want Charlie.....He might be a little crazy but what an actor....
It's the most hilarious show on TV.
He is an actor not a senator or judge. His personal demons are his alone and have nothing to do with his job. We all have our problems, his are just on display for the world to see. Try living with that pressure.
500,000 "battered" women and I'm still eating mine plan?
It;s a TV show people and it's funny! Who cares what Charlie does in his real life? Plus, Charlie doesn't go around acting all saintly like that tramp Angelina who's a goody two shoes one minute and a homewrecker the next! Charlie is who he is and he's probably a lot like his character. I have zero sympathy for the women who get involved with him – he's had the same rep for years so they know what they're getting into. I do think maybe Charlie should stay away from tall, thin blondes and look for real women...he'd probably be happier...
I really don't care about his personal life or any celebrities for that matter. All I know is that this has been the funniest season of Two and a Half men so far. People that think the show is terrible have no sense of humor what so ever!
WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?? THAT SHOW IS SO TERRIBLE!!
Charlie may be a terrific actor, and I'm sure his show is funny. However, domestic violence is no laughing matter. I sincerely hope nobody else gets injured in this situation. Yes, we all have our faults, but domestic violence is a serious crime that does not need to be excused any longer.
Of course the ratings have gone up! He has made a career out of playing the loveable drunken womanizer. Take a look at his credits: Hot Shots, Major League, Spin City, Two And A Half Men. In Major League he went straight from prison to the Cleveland Indians' starting rotation. Nobody feels betrayed by his off camera actions, because that's the character he plays. This isn't Mr. Rogers. I don't drink, smoke or gamble but I enjoy this character. He's not a great actor, but his writers do good work with what he has to offer.
He's my freakin' hero – dont like him or my opinion? oh well
I love the show how ever Mr. Sheen is my least favorite person on the show to me is is his supporting cast who makes the show....Not Charlie.
THIS PROGRAM IS THE BEST FUNNY AND REFRESHING THEY DESIRVE ALL THE GREAT RATING S THEY GET I LOVE TO WATCH THEM . JUST KEEP GOING ON.
Two and a Half Men is such a terribly predictable and unfunny show. I can't see why so many people watch it. At all.
Ok so there is something I'm not quite understanding here. Everyone seems to be posting that we should "leave him alone" with his problems, because it isn't our business. I agree, we should stay out of personal lives. But why does that make it ok to break the law? The guy comes out and admits publicly to breaking the law, but its ok because he admitted it?
So few sitcoms are actually funny. I have never seen a TWO AND A HALF MEN without some serious laughter. Keep up the good work! You are head and shoulders above most sitcoms.
I think one reason–maybe THE reason–Charlie's publicity appears to have even helped his carrer is because the public behavior is actually consistent with the character he portrays. Viewers don't feel deceived by his real life escapades. And it is respectable that he is unapologetic. He is who he is, love it or leave it. The real stupidity is the fact than women keep hooking up with him. What idiots. (Incidently readers, I am a woman and I have really good self-esteem). It's another example of how women seek out the "bad boys" , but he's the reality of what a bad boy is in the real world. I say go Charlie. You're genuine. And I DO think Two and Half Men is a terrific show. It's one of the few that has stayed funny over the years of it's run, and it would go down the tubes without Charlie. The women who subject themselves to his rotten behavior need to take responsibilty for their actions they freely chose. They are not going to change him and are foolish to even try. Believe it or not I used to work to help battered women. Yes, women will go back to their abusers. Most of them have no other resources or skills and fear trying to go it alone and will even choose to go back to abuse rather than be terrified by alternatives. But these Hollywood women have wonderful options and should make better choices.
Go Charlie! :)
This will continue to be a tougher period than normal (venus rx and jupiter rx). November 18th should be a return to more normalcy for him.
i'm scratching my head; Tiger Woods cheats on his wife and is treated like a criminal. Kanye West interrupts an acceptance speech and people want to kill him. Charlie Sheen has a long history of abuse and substance abuse BUT people make excuses for him. Hmmmmm, I see a pattern here.
What a joke! To reward such bad behavior with ratings. I just cant believe how many people are stupidly supporting this man!
truth is no one knows what ACTUALLY happened except charlie. Everything you all are talking about is stuff you THINK you know. Its a show that is funnny, lets not be too dramatic.
reward his bad behavior with higher rattings? what idiots.
Love ya Charlie!
I will to continue to watch the show, because it's very funny and because the more money he makes the more money can go to the ex-wives he abused!
Do you believe everything you read? Hmmmmm, until he comes out and addresses his issue in public i stand to think he is living his life accordingly. Quite pointing fingers until the truth comes out. If you dont like the tv show dont watch it, if you dont like him dont discuss him. As for me,, the tv show can be a bit much,, but I like his brother he is the one who makes the show...alone with the son. Charlie is added flavor to the show. Then there is the housekeeper she is a riot. So Mr. Sheen do what you have to do. I will watch "One Tree Hill"
Just goes to show you.......Be the party of NO for 2 years and absolutely contribute nothing to the running of our nation and get a great big fat reward.......pulll a Charlie Sheen and get a huge increase in ratings. Isn't it starting to scare anyone other than me that our country has lost every bit of sense that I thought we might have had. Why would we be voting in and watching these people who are obviously into their own agendas.
Ouch. Stop it. You are murdering me.
Why do you people abuse me? Are most of you slow or lazy? Love the show.
this man probably will never change. he been wild for years. remember he was heidi fliess. best customer. lol hope spelled her name right.
Sheen is my pick me up i watch his show every night i know im in for a good laugh the whole cast is very funny no one is perfect we all have flaws so dont judge let sheen be sheen he is my guy and i love him keep up the work sheen be who you are dont cahnge for no one ( but yourself)
What if Jon Crier was busted doing the same things Sheen did? Would you Sheen supporters have the same reaction?
Give 'em hell Charlie!
Despite his issues n his personal life I don't think it reflects his show at all I think its one of best man shows on television. it's some of the best writing I have seen .
The man has been battling his own demonds for years. If those women chose to be with him then it is their responsibility to deal with him. The women know his behavior-he has not changed in 30 years- so stay away girls if you know hwat is good for you. He is talented and funny and sad at the same time. Be grateful you are not in his shoes- no need to bash and judge. Charlie is good at being human and making mistakes- he is paying- he is battling everyday. If he would stop trying to conform to society- stop getting married, stop having kids, stop pretending, he may just be better off.
Totally 100% agree with everything you wrote, Karen.
Charlie Haper!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love You, Charlie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What the heck is wrong with people? Anything Sheen does should be boycotted. It seems he is truly invincible, that is, until he ends up killing some woman.
The thing about Charlie and why we still love him is because he admits he is a screw up. Doesn't blame others. He is just who he is. Its hard to hate a guy who agrees with all the bad things you point out about him.
that show is hilarous! Watch it every night. It makes you laugh and gets rid of the dreary day. He is a good actor. His private life is his private life. We don't know all the behind the scene information and wayyyyyyyyyyyy too many people always looking to condemn others. Perhaps it just makes them feel superior.
Gotta love him. Allways watched this show. Amazing to see Jake growing. Lol
Its a shame when "celebrities" have it so good they F it up like him. Geez, I'll trade (w/no drugs though!)
Wait til the fat kid gets busted with weed, ratings will go thru the roof
I love the show, and I don't think his personal life should take away from his professional life.
Tom Cruise needs to be fired from the shop. Maybe Tom Bosley could replace him.
Yea, the show is funny but not like it used to be. Charlie retains the character that makes the show what it is. The character Allen has become boring. Some moments of laughter but not as much. For me Jake has become more enjoyable than Sheen or Cryer. As for Charlie's personal life it is our business to some extent. Public figures are role models regardless. For his sake + his kids, Charie needs to get his sh** together. It stinks! And I don't care what anyone says. Domestic violence IS NOT OK!
Whatever or whoever Charlie Sheen is in 'real life,' Two and a Half Men is ridiculously hysterical. The supporting cast is a big part of the humor. I try not to miss a single episode.
Good actor and love the show but he needs to get help for whetever is going on before things get worse.
Leave the guy alone, Charlie has issues like we all do, he just got caught. Charlie your a great actor! Keep up the good work!
I've never tried killing two people. He's fair game.
Never wasted my time on this sitcom, but seeing his fall from humanity makes me think of his reputable father and brother. Makes me think this guys self destructive.
People will only see what they want to see in people. So what if he has an addiction he is still doing his job,well I might add. This is the problem with gossip websites I am sure all of you have moments you wouldn't want everybody to know about
The addiction contributes to abusing the women in his life. Oh wait that's ok because it's Charlie Sheen and he's sooooo funny. (sarcasm)
Could care less about his personal life as long as I get to keep watching one of the funniest shows on television.
Charlie is being himself in real life as he is in his acting. love the character and show.
The show is a disgusting piece of filth and so is he. Those of you who love this guy are truly sick individuals.
I agree with ankho but bentley4 u need help its not ok to hit or cheat people take life for granted live a safe and healthy life remember there will be a judgement day! what will u tell god about ur life what a shame.
I love Sheen and the show. However, it is clear that he is going downhill. It is only a matter of time.
And yes the media are not being fair, considering how the 'others' were portrayed.. as " crazy, evil, mental, and racist".
I love Camilla Sophia!!!
Typical viewers....everyone loves a train wreck & Charlie Sheen surpasses Lindsay Lohan & Mel Gibson to name a few. I wouldn't call Charlie Sheen's behavior "a few mistakes".....he's an alcoholic & drug addict who needs help badly before he kills himself or worse yet someone else.
Our legal system has totally failed Charlie Sheen. I fully expect to see him to end up like Elvis, Michael Jackson & Heath Ledger....dead!
Good call sara, so if you "hit a woman" then everyone in america should stop watching his show and put the other actors out of jobs. Bravo Bravo
I try & place myself in any indivduals shoes before i judge them? Charlie Sheen is talented actor who's made some mistakes.. Would we want people trashing us or putting our mistakes under a microscope? Think not.
He should be in jail for abusing women. Do that many people love this guy or is Charlie using those millions to have people write comments supporting him?
so you crucify Miley for growing up....but continue to support this wife beater ?? because his show is funny? he would not have a show if you'd stop watching and let him know his behavior is unacceptable . And Chris Brown, he had one altercation with Rhinna and he was crucified and shut out buy the public and media..but hey let's support Charlie ...
Well, he acts like his character in real life, so we all laugh because we know it's probably based on something he did in real life! Keep it up!! We love it!!
Here's the deal. If everyone could get paid 2 million bucks and episode to be themselves and have 13 million people watch it, we'd all do it in a heartbeat! Leave the man alone. Charlie, handle your business.
Yes, he handles his business all right! This man is doomed at his own hands.
So when does he attempt to kill someone on his show then? Ya know since he plays himself.
Charlie Sheen is definitely a talented comedian. He's also a very arrogant and self centered individual who places his co-stars thru the ringer. I can't imagine working along side such an individual who has such disregard for others. If Charlie goes down the toilet, so goes the show and the other members of the cast.
You people are sick. He tried to kill two women. His soon to be ex wife and Kelly Preston. But because he's funny right now, he gets a pass. You make me sick.
Still looking for information on the cartoon " wait till your fathe gets home " Tom Bosley is involved.
check IMDB , season1 24 eps $18 at Amazon, season 2 coming out soon also 24 eps, only two seasons before it was axed
Love the show, love Charlie Sheen, he has made me laugh for years!! So he has some problems-don't we ALL??!? God bless you Charlie.
Can we get this guy on the CNN heroes list. He's one of America's coolest celebrities.
Ratings up because Liz Vassey was on that episode!
maybe because rose is back?
This is, quite possibly, the unfunniest show in the history of tv. Seriously.
13.6 million people disagree with you.
CHARLIE! THAT'S THE SECRET!
Be. More. Crazy?
Is Charlie Sheen a creep? You betcha. Should he be made to account for his actions? Well, duh. Still, he's funny and his show is funny. We all have that friend – the one who makes us embarrassed to know him but we like him anyway.
The show is great. Just leave the man alone he not hurting nobody but him self that's his business. We all love the show. Keep up the good work
He allegedly tried to kill his ex wife by strangling her and shot Kelly Preston. Yeah.....he would be crucified if not for this show.
He's not hurting anybody but himself? He held a knife to his wife and shot a woman....
Sheen is celebrated and Mel Gibson is despised? They are both obviously mentally Ill and both have substance abuse issues but I guess this proves that you can beat the sh!t out of women and be a big time POS but make sure not to say anything bad about blacks or the Jews. I'd laugh if it wasn't so disgusting.
I wanted to say the same thing but in reverse, it's not up to me to judge the individual that's for the courts and their families. I enjoy Sheen and Gibson's acting abilities. I could care less what they do when they aren't in front of a camera.
This show is absurdly unfunny, and its baffling how he earns $2mil per episode. Its only more absurd and ridiculous that ppl are rewarding his awful behavior with higher ratings. Shameful.
I agree. The show if AWFUL and he is messed up in the head. He should be far from the limelight and in rehab so he can figre out why he can't stay married or sober......
the thing is that he makes in one episode what your whole family will make in a lifetime, now that's funny
This is all about money. If Charlie Sheen wasn't on a hit show, then we would all be very critical of him. In my opinion, he is worse than Chris Brown. His abusive behavior has been going on for at least twenty years. I remember the incident when he shot Kelly Preston(who later married John Travolta) in the arm. Thought it was weird there were no charges.
The man is a menace and a thug. Whoever is clearing things for him to act is doing a hell of a job. Maybe they should help out Mel Gibson(BTW, I'm being sarcastic).
NOOOO it's not because he's a celeb.... it's because he's on a HIT TV SHOW! As soon as that show goes away, so does he.
The most disturbing thing about this whole situation is the domestic violence. If he wasn't a celebrity he would have lost his job with all the run -ins his had with the law lately.
typical all celebs get off easy while the normal hardworking people get the low end of the stick if they mess up one good time
Unreal. So because he is a celebrity he can get away with criminal behaviour! You should be ashamed of yourselves people – especially the women amongst you! Domestic violence, children in the middle – I mean people get some help!
Only in America we idolize tools.
Charlie Sheen has never been in a movie I didnt like. Thougfh I have never seen a single episode of Charlie Sheen on his TV series, his success in it proves that hes a versatile actor in the Alist category. Who watches TV series now when you have dozens of 24 hour movie channels ? What he does with his lovers in the privacy of his bedroom is nobodys business, but Charlie Sheen's. If I had Charlie's cash I would do the same as he does-have a drop dead gorgeous blonde on my arm all the time in public, and 3 at home . Who needs marriage, and the same woman till the day you die? Man by nature, is not monogamous. Charlie Sheen just is living proof of that. Watching Charlie Sheen's incredible flick " Under Pressure " once a week, should be required viewing for us all. You are an inspiration Charlie, and much loved ALWAYS and UNCONDITIONALLY !!!!
Funny show, even funnier guy. I love Charlie Sheen. So what, he fkd up. S**T happens! Get over it, since when is his personal life OUR BUISNESS?
LOVE CHARLIE SHEEN! No matter what! Love this show, and sooooo sad it's leaving after this season. The draw is definitely the fact that HE IS "CHARLIE" in real life! People like "REAL"!
he isn't leaving after this season, he just signed for two more years.
Great writing hot chicks great supporting cast funny show
The show is very funny. But let's not forget how he spent last christmas with his family. This man has severe issues.
do you worry about the personal life of someone serving you food at a restaraunt? Dont worry about his personal life. he is funny as hell.
What does his being a druggie, alcoholic or whatever, have to do with his acting? The show is funny.
I love Charlie, & will continue to watch until the show goes off the air! Then I will watch his reruns! Watching it now FX
Say man...so what of ur addiction drugs are drugs alcohol is a drug...we all know u like others...lol...its cool...people just think they can dump on the ones caught when they more of a problem than us...love ya charlie
I wish the media would leave charley alone !!!!!!
You're clearly a huge fan (you spelled his name Charley instead of Charlie)
It doesn't matter how you feel about Charlie Sheen. The program is hysterical.
Everyone makes mistakes and rather than seeing Charlie as what he is a normal human being with problems and addiction like so many others so he got drunk or had an adverse reactions whatever the case may be he isnt a superhero he a man with weaknesses like anyone else he brings great skill to his career hes made people laugh and been an excellent actor so he got drunk and made a scene it doesnt deminish the fact that hes a wonderful actor comedian and person God bless you Charlie we love you
You might want to get a keyboard that actually has punctuation marks.
Charlie's main problem is that he can't understand that even a fantasy real life like he is living, has certain limitations.
MY MOM MAKES ME WATCH THIS EVERY WEEK AND IT IS OCCASIONALLY FUNNY
two and a hald men is the funniest comedy on right now and I love Charlie. Hang in there Charlie.
Agree. Script is witty which is a rarity in most sit coms of today. It is purely entertainment folks. Loosen up.
He is a good actor and if people continue to love him, why not love him more...
Why do people waste time watching this deviant? The only way I would tune in is if he was having his Johnson chain sawed off.
@nathalie why would they? you're sounding pretty racist
The new series is not as good!.....Now that Charlie is getting married.. I liked the funny antics of the carefree bachelor! Anne
