'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Should Charlie Sheen be fired?

"Showbiz Tonight" learned today that Charlie Sheen has checked out of a Los Angeles hospital after being rushed there Thursday – after reportedly partying with porn stars.

Charlie’s spokesperson says Sheen had severe abdominal pains due to a previously existing hernia condition, but will be back on the set of “Two and a Half Men” on Tuesday. But here’s the thing: how much can CBS take of Sheen’s headline-making drama? We’re asking in our "Showbiz" Flashpoint today: Should Sheen be fired from “Two and a Half Men”?

I don’t think he should be fired - Charlie seems to fare better when he’s working. His publicized problems always seem to happen when he’s on vacation or the show’s on hiatus. I hope Charlie gets the help he needs and truly wants to get well. But what do you think? Post below.

But Sheen’s not the only one making big news today - here are more stories we’ll have on "Showbiz Tonight"!

Sammi punches Ronnie on “Jersey Shore”! But is it okay for a woman to get violent with a guy like that?

And what do you think: Do the Kardashians deserve any privacy?!

See you on "Showbiz Tonight" live at 5 p.m. ET and again at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN today!

    Please, 3 and a half men isn't a real show and CBS isn't a real network. If anything, Sheen should fire them.

    He should lose his job. In any other profession if you embarrassed your employer this way, you would be fired immediately. CBS doesn't have to cancel their money-making show, but instead replace him with someone who knows how to appreciate his job! Nobody is irreplacable. Sheen has had this problem most of his adult life and eventually he is going to let those drugs kill him. Then CBS WILL have to replace him. I say better to do it now than later.

    He clearly has a problem, being fired wont solve it. CBS should take time to get him the help that he needs......

    Again I laugh at all the people that walk on this earth thinking that they are Christ and are without sin. I like CS and I like the show Two and a Half Men. I do hope he gets the help he needs before its too late.

    He'll die of an overdose and the view women will blame everyone but charlie sheen for his own actions for years to come. The Lindsay Lohan will come on the show and it will be renamed 2 and a half women till she dies and the women on the view will blame everyone but lindsay lohan for her actions. then tom sizemore will come on....

    Should he be fired? What kind of question is this? Two and a Half Men wouldn't exist without him. His character is far too important to be written out of the show. He does a great job. It's unfortunate that he's struggling with substance abuse, but everyone has their demons. I just hope he makes it through and lives a healthier lifestyle for the sake of his kids, family, and fans. We're all with you, Charlie!

    I would say put the show on hold and let him get into rehab for at least 6 months. http://www.stopoxy.com

    He keeps women in their place – basically there to keep a man entertained. He's a hero to us all.

    As long as his actions do not adversely affect the show CS should not be fired.

    If the Kardashions want privacy they should stop the "look at me! Look at me!"routine. They are media hounds.
