Although Charlie Sheen has said he would return to CBS’ “Two and a Half Men,” reports are flying that show creator Chuck Lorre is planning to proceed without him.
According to the New York Times, Lorre is working on restructuring the show around a fresh face – and while Woody Harrelson, Jeremy Piven and Bob Saget have all been rumored to be replacement options, it doesn’t appear that any of the actors will become “Men’s” new star.
An exec for the show's studio, Warner Bros. (which is owned by the same parent company as CNN) did say that one thing’s certain: “We are not bringing the show back with Charlie.”
Sheen, who was fired from his "Men" gig in March and has since brought a $100 million lawsuit against Lorre and Warner Bros., expressed his views on the matter in a letter to Lorre given to TMZ.
“My fans may tune in for a minute, but at the end of the day, no one cares about your feeble show without me,” Sheen writes. “Shame on you. Not even a phone call to the man that put you on the map. The man that put 500 million dollars in your pockets… I busted my ass for 8 years to support your vision.”
The embattled actor, currently on his “Violent Torpedo of Truth” tour, went on to hurl a number of foul names at his former boss, adding that the “message is crystal clear: NO CHARLIE SHEEN. NO SHOW."
"Two and a Half Men" has not been confirmed to return next season, but the Times reports that CBS is scheduled to announce their fall line-up on May 18. The Warner Bros. exec said that "there is a scenario where the show doesn't come back," but that everyone involved is working to make sure that it does.
Warner Bros. and Chuck Lorre declined to comment.
Considerably well written article!!!

Osaaama??? You alive.....? DID THE BIG BAD USA SMOKE YOU....? Oh im soooo sorry!
I think that a HUGE mistake would be made if the show attempted to go on without Charlie Sheen. So the guy has been going through a rough patch. If the media would him alone, he would not be feeding off the publicity like he is. He would be able to get the help he needs and return in better form. Sometimes the public is a celebrity's worse nightmare.
Charlie, you dumb butt, you didn't make the show the show made you, and yes they will find a replacement.
Sheen says the show can't live without him ? yeah, right !
The show CAN live on without him because of a very, good cast right there on "Two and a Half Men" and Sheen's character can be killed off or better yet, replaced by a lookalike (Charlie Harper gets into an accident and has plastic surgery to fix his face and comes back home to Malibu to his family...), remember "Bewitched" ? The Two Darrins, anyone ? Or "Roseanne" where the daughter of the Connors was played by two actresses for a while...they even made a joke about it on the show....It's a funny show but not to the point where it can't survive without one of them...
Very very funny dude!!!
Unfortunately Charlie is correct. The show will be LOSING without him. Charlie..stick it to the them cause you sir are always WINNING!!!! At least you still have the models.
Time for a reality check, people. One of the reasons the man was hired was because he is one of the larger than life types with a bad boy side that looked good doing it. He was doing stupid things long before they hired him, and the execs knew it. To get bent out of share about it after 8 years is just foolish. Charlie does have a lot of fans who will likely not watch the show without him on it. How often do shows get canned because one of the stars hired had issues and left for whatever reason. In nearly every case, the bosses knew the problems at the outset, but chose to ignore them, hoping they could change the behavior down the road. That never works, and still they do it. He the show cancels because they dont get it, then they deserve to lord viewers and money.
How about Norm McDonald? Charlie gets in an accident from being drunk and dies. Evelyn announces that there is another son. Allan invites the other son to come live with Jake and him, only to find out that he's just like Charlie. Just an idea.
@B lo me lets eat dinner and then have $@*!!
its going to be interesting what happens with 2 and 1/2 men. used to watch all the reruns not anymore. will watch the first new show and go from there. now watching middle, modern family and the big bang theory and like them, so even if 2 and 1/2 doesn't come no big deal in my book. of the three listed in article, i like woody harrelson.
@Fan of show "Three's Company" didn't have any problems with John Ritter – it was SUZANNE SOMERS that caused all of the problems on the set, and she eventually got fired for them! The show also went on for three more successful seasons with Priscilla Barnes taking her place, so get your facts straight, as everyone LOVED John Ritter – it's Charlie Sheen people can't stand!
Speak for yourself. I love Charlie Sheen, the actor.
omg... don't pick Bob Saget... he's not funny...he's just plain filthy...seemingly no regard or respect for anybody or anything.
what a disappointment from Full House. a true fake. but it looks like his stand-up is real, and that's just plain dirty.
put james spader and william shatner on the show!
Wow unbelievable you people are phucked up
Ur all dumb charlie sheen is what makes this show if they want to do this with someone else they should have done the 8 years ago when it started
The show sucked from the very beginning our standards are quite low or the majority of Americans are mindless idiots.
Whoever keeps hacking my account please stop. You are ruining my reputation.
To my fans. Thank you for the support. We are all here to win! For the critics on the board, F off! You all can follow my battle on twitter.
Don't give up Charlie!
@beautiful vixon i dont mind sunshine girl* she is honest & herself.b lo me not really & the hacker who gets to my account not at all.
Marc. You're an idiot. Marc in portland?
And there wouldn't be a show without the other 1 1/2 men either. What an ass.
Robert Downey Jr. would be perfect, but I think he only does movies. Other than him, I don't think may actors can pull off Charlie. I don't care for Sheen personally, but it wouldn't be the same with anyone else.
Thanks Vixen. I'm nor sure if B lo me would call. Anyway, I'm going to give Bret a call since his number is posted.
Have we all lost our fuc*ings minds? @N why on earth are you fighting with b lo me and sunshine girl? Seriously .i would love for B lo me and Sunshine Girl to get their email addresses. I had that connection with someone a blog..short and simple. Jeezes give the two a shot. From a heatless c- nt ..give these two s chance :)

@graham you write like someone at the show is reading your comments. Your efforts are for nothing.
Where is Sunshine Girl? Yum, I like fattys.
Every weeknight my wife and I tune into the syndication runs of Two and a Half Men. Charile is the show. It all revolves around his drunk uncle character. The others do well in their parts but in our opinion none of it works without Charlie. His lines, his delivery, his satisfied smiles after saying something that annoy's Cryer's character. Who can possibly replace Charlie? We're not interested in a Two and a Half Men show without the main character. Damn.... Two and a Half Men is by far the funniest show I've ever seen and I only started watching a year ago. Now making up for lost time with syndication Funnier than Taxi, Cheers, Seinfeld, Friends and our opinion. Come on, bring him back. Make more money off him.
Yes. I dated Ryan Seacrest for a while. He has a little pickle but I enjoyed that little nubbin a ton.
@N is a gay wad and takes the chubby pickle
Take a little time from the blog and my name goes through mud
Sunshine Girl* will you marry me and my fat a$$?I am a n!gger who eats fried chicken all day on the couch would you like to do that with me forever?Our a$$es can make a world record!!
@b lo me look at u callin people dum!!!wat a b!otch u r!!!
I love Charlie the whole reason me and my man watch 2 n half man were because of Charlie.If it wasn`t for Charlie I wouldn`t be watching it. So what if he was all ways drinking on the show that is what made the show that n the girls. I don`t blame Charlie for doing what he did if it was me I would have made u pay more so u are lucky that he took it easy on u.
@b lo me none of ur opinions r important!!look at u desperate for a girl so u go crawlin up to sunshine girl!!maybe u could become g@y & hav superhiro!!from his comments he sounds lik a happy g@y!!
Chuck let me audition we can call it two and half men Miami
I can be twice the actor sheen can without trying just ask my wife. You go chuck and wb
Charlie Sheen is the man. Its not all his fault. He just turned into his character.
Dulcimer172 is dum
Oh – NOW he's funny. He sucked in that TV show he was in.
That's original rob.
@N. Yes you!
@N. You opinion does not matter. Loser!
Man....wake up people,,its a TV show, that;s all!!!. A mindless sit-com.
charlie sheen aint funny or cool!!!!he is justa phoney b!otch!!!
Woody or Bob Saget? NOT! Neither is funny, Bob Saget really sucks. Never liked any show with him. The show CAN survive without Charlie. First, give Berta a story and a life....shes hilarious. Her and Alan are a riot, love when she calls him Zippy. They can involve Judith and Herb (who is also a riot). What about the baby girl and that whole thing, theres comdey there. Jake could actually do more than just pass thru the house on his way out the door.....Keep Rose, give her a new love interest, Evelyn could move in to the house..So much that could be done on that show. All Charlie did was sit on the couch and drink lately anyway. AND really glad I don't have to see the stupid bowling shirt and tan shorts anymore. OMG nice to have a signature style but EVERY episode? Not going to miss that.
I stopped watching the show months ago and it was because I was sick of Charlie – because of his personal life, he just wasn't funny in the show anymore (more like sad and pathetic). I won't watch the show if Charlie returns – I will give it a try if they go on without him. The show was starting to get a bit stale, this could really send it in a new direction. The rest of the cast is excellent – there is so much they could do with them.
Why is anyone still talking about Charlie Sheen?
Give charlie and gender re-assignment and have jennifer grey play the new charli.(maybe ally sheedy)
kind of young(ish);
kind of wow(zers);
Please don't bring Charlie. It was getting harder and harder to watch Charlie as a drunk. I don't believe that he was what kept the show interesting. Love the show with Rose and Charlie but also liked the chemistry with Rose and Alan. But again please no more charlie. Like the idea of a long lost brother and killing off Charlie.
I have never seen the show, but due to CNN's coverage, I think I get the premise. I widower is raising his young son with the help of wacky old uncle charlie, and this show has been on the air eight years? The kid is probably not a cute kid anymore, he is probably getting old.
Look to My Three Sons for a hint. My 3 sons had to cycle old ones out a replace them with new ones.
Bring in Pat Benatar or someone who was once edgy, make her an aunt or some other relative who lost all her money in a Ponzi scheme and the housing bust and a crooked stockbroker and other things, who moves in after Charlie runs off with a circus performer and helps jon raise the boy and ease him through adolescence.
TV shows have replaced uncle charlies before.
Wait is sebastian cabot still alive? How about shirley partridge?
You could really do wacky things with an old icom without the boy ending up in detox.
Bob Saget?!?! Let him run with the ball and he could add SOOOO much more to the show!! Don't f8ck with Saget!!
Hire writers and write your own show. Charlie that's the only way you are going to get work.
Charlie ~ why don't you hire writers to script another show around you. Otherwise I think you're going to find it hard to find someone to hire you after what you are doing w/ your current bosses.
Hate to tell you this Charlie since I've always loved you but I would defintely watch Two and a Half Men without you. I am so curious to see who they will bring in. All the actors mentioned would do an excellent job and it's time that the show got some new life and new tiger blood anyway! Sorry Charlie but the world does not revolve around you especially since the drugs have stolen your teeth and good looks.
Best of luck in whatever you do next.
.... and therein lies Charlie Sheen's biggest life mistake. EVERYBODY is expendable and replaceable.
Of course it'd be ideal if Lorre and Sheen could work out the problems to have one more season, but that ship has sailed. Lorre's The Big Bang Theory became a hit and Sheen lost his remaining clout as a result.
Just goes to show that if you are a celebrity, some fans will overlook anything! Kinda reminds me of politics...
I REALLY LIKE THIS SHOW ! The only person on it that rubs me wrong from time to time is his mother – obviously because of my real-Life experiences with someone similar ! They need to continue the show WITH Charlie as he is an integral part of the whole thing ! It is NOT a one-man show because all the others provide the interaction required creating the substance that makes it a hit , BUT without Charlie in the mix , it will just stumble and fall ! You would have the same problem if you left out ANY of the four key characters ( Charlie Berta Jon Angus ) ! They ALL belong together to make this show successful ! ! !
the show has probably run it's course anyway as most do when a child actor starts growing up. the show was scratching for new ideas that weren't working even before charlie went off the rails. great ensemble cast...mr. sheen did not do the show by himself regardless of what he thinks. enjoyed it for many years but mr. lorre might do well to move on to something else.
A solution is fairly easy peasy, although of course it's still a gamble, but one that will allow for at least a couple of more seasons: Next season starts of with Charlie HarperKs funeraland Jenna Elfman comes back. Her character and Jon Cryer's Alan get back together and live in the Malibu Beach House. Then, Jenna's ex shows up and ends up staying with them and he's just like Charlie Harper.
What I think is funny is that apparently sheen has been doin drugs for a while and nobody knew about it and everybody loved the show but wen the public finally finds out about it everybody is so against him who really cares everybody makes mistakes two and a half will never make it or be as popular as it was I won't be a viewer of the show without sheen just won't be the same
They can't really put emelio on that show. He has already been on and died on the episode he was on as a longtime friend of charlies.
With everything going on in America who cares about an over paid actor that is going to be dead in a few years from over indulgence. If we ignore him he will go away,stop feeding his ego.
WHY DOES SHEEN PERSIST ON HIS FOOLISH PUBLIC FUNERAL. HE HAS GONE BEYOND MAKING A FOOL OF HIMSELF OR EVEN TRYING TO GAIN AN AUDIENCE OF VIEWERS THAT WILL TAKE HIM SERIOUSLY ANY LONGER. USING FOUL LANGUAGE AND SHOWING THAT US THAT HE IS ABLE TO HAVE A FIT WITH THE MONEY HE HAS MADE.. AS WELL AS SHOWING THE VIEWERS THAT HE HAS EARNED THOUSANDS FROM HIS SCRIPTS OF SOMETIMES QUESTIONABLE HUMOR. WITH ALL THAT MONEY HE CLAIMS TO HAVE MADE MAYBE HE CAN BRING FREUD BACK FROM THE DEAD TO CURE THE "LITTLE WARLOCK" HE NEEDS TO UNDERSTAND THAT HE IS OVER, OVER, OVER! THE SHOW STILL HAS LIFE AND CAN CONTINUE WITHOUT HIS JEALOUSY AND ANIMOSITY. HE IS NO LONGER NUMBER ONE AT ANYTHING, THE PUBLIC DOESN'T WANT HIM . TIME FOR SHEEN TO GO AWAY, ENTERTAIN THE TERRORISTS OVERSEAS (GREAT SECRET WEAPON)!
The public does want him! Idiot
I saw the show more than one time on tv and did not last more than 5 minutes Watching
There you have this movie star on screen of course it gets your attention but when you see Sheen being himself its just not entertainable
He lacks of character carisma his not even funny
I think that the show with or with out him will just go onto history
And will be famous for Sheens issue
The show was dying anyway. Even if Sheen stayed it was OVER! He is to old to be a player. Its like date grampa. Alan is whiney, annoying and cheap. jake is too stupid , self absorbed and waste of air. Its storied out. Its over, fineto, nothing to see here the end!
Guess I should have wasted some of my time watching this show in order to "get" the whole fuss going on here. Are people so desperate for entertainment that they need to follow this crap?
Charlie Sheen is a legend in his own tiny mind.
Sheen you are looseing you crack head mental case!....go ff your self and dose gold diging tramps you call godesses, they look like crak hooooosss to me...lol
Poor Charlie! If only his talent were 10% as large as his overblown ego!
He was on the show for 8 years and was the highest paid actor! So he was doing something right!
I watched the show occasionally however NEVER watch it now because just seeing Sheen gets me annoyed. Maybe the show will flop without him, maybe not. They should give it a shot and no way bring him back. Just because he is an actor does not give him the right to behave the way he does. If he was a working Joe just like the rest of us, failed a drug test, bad mouthed his company and "the boss" he would be fired, just like the rest of us. No company out there would bring back an employee after the type of behavior he displayed, no matter how good a salesman they where. Sheen needs help and it is clear to see he still doesn't get that point. I feel sorry for his family and especially his children.
am i the only person on the planet who has noticed that THIS SHOW SUCKS DONKEY BALLS?! Thank you Charlie Sheen, you freakin nutbar! I seriously hope you're right about your idiotic fans loyalty, and this show goes swirling once and for all.
Many of us have heard all about him we ever want to. I have no patience for someone who acts like he does with no appreciation that he made more in a week than some do in a hard working lifetime!
The show will tank without Charlie – he was great in it. But Charlie is nothing without the show. He was just Martin's son/Emilio's brother before the show started, and now he's just another messed-up D-list celebrity, kind of like Lindsay Lohan.
I love it when "they" report that all these various actors are rumored to be taking the part when they are the ones who start/spread the rumors.
I liked the show b/c of mother and maid..killer punch lines... kid is cute but is at point now..either to be stupid and fade out of show or will change to be more substantial...
Stopped watching the past 2 years...got turned off with Jon dryer burning girlfriends home...downward spiral..embezzling money from family....noticed sheen acting different..look different....I lost interest in two guys being silly and juvenile. I liked it when sheen matured and tried to have a committed two with the lady that had a gay dad...lovers with john amos. I loved the gay dads. Real...committed...loved the maid. Hated Jon the last two seasons. Spineless, whiny and selfish. Ever since burning house...I left the show. Wished sheen married girl with gay dads... let dads carry load off whiny Jon...let dumb son move out be in a rock band. Be in music b/c uncle Charlie is in music...could help dumb kid be genius musically...later on..new wife with gay dad can ground and stabilize sheen. Could be a good direction here. If............Charlie can see the potential...doubt it....I left show awhile ago. Need positive male roles....too bad.
Charlie Sheen for President!
There is no Two and a Half Men without Charlie Sheen. The show will never be the same. Charlie made the whole show. And if i had to pick the next person to take over the PlayBoy mansion it would have to be my man Charlie Sheen!
What a guy!
What an ego.
Get a life, Charlie. It's just a TV show.
He's an idiot! Anyone who gives in to his b.s and threats is just as weak as he is. What a turd! Go loyal viewers go! Tools.
When Bush was in office gas prices were up as much as they are now then went back down when is greed azz got out of office. Republicans won the house in November and then the price of gas started going up again. Republicans are greedy pigs and care not for the American people but only care about stealing from us. Their goal is greed and to see how much money they can pump out of the tax payers pockets into theirs.
Charlie sheen is radically winning!
No Charlie, No show. Period. Things are more deep here, than just Charlie in the show. It is the relationship between the one, who work and earns moneys and the other one who makes money. And the other one says, I can still make money without you (there are hundreds of others actors out there waiting for their moments). The owners of the channel are always right, they own the vehicle, they can give a ride to anyone they choose. No doubt. But, the reason for them to make money is that I, the watcher, watch their channel and therefore allow them to put their ads during that show: the only way they can make money. The more people watch the show show, the more bucks they make on ads. Guess what, I am not switching on your channel without Charlie. This is the only way I can protest and therefore you will make less money. Period. And if I am not the only one, then....you will be #LOOSING. There a lot of other channels to watch, where the owners of the channels are smart enough not to wage wars against the actors.Charlie is not perfect. Show me the perfect. Nobody's perfect.
Why does CNN offer a comments section on entertainment but not on their other articles? It's like you are all so passionate about tv and the fantasy world of make believe, but then in the real world the "news anchors" will decide what is news and how society should react. I don't see a comments section on $4/gal of gas but everyone has an opinion on Charlie sheen. And to the idiot who compared him to Sarah palin? I don't see why we can't responsibly run a little oil out of Alaska while we develop more green technology. Or run a natural gas line alongside the existing oil line. You all want your suv's and guzzle guzzle but you ridicule Sarah and bush who wanted to produce. And after Islam takes over and women are forced to wear burkas while your husbands beat you with a stick I may very well be up in Alaska celebrating Christmas with the palins. Now carry on ppl. Go back and argue about Charlie.
You know what Charlie? The violent torpedo of truth is there will be a show without you. And it will be good. Better perhaps. You didn't make the show, the show made you.
Grow up sheen!!
Please bring back the show Intact...with Charlie Sheen, warts and all. Bring back "[Bleep] My Dad Says," "Old Christine," and "Medium" too, while you're at it!
Simply put Mr. Lorre, I never watched 2 and a half men...and changed the channel when the advertisment on FX is played. I will watch this show "ONLY" when Sheen is never mention, shown, or even thought about...you can call it "2 men and a teen", just to make a fresh start.
Come on now, all things must come to an end. Let's focus on the other good shows and lay MEN to rest! Big bang and mike & Molly rock!
The other shows are not that smart and their audiences are not numerous. "2 and a hafl men" audience is all ages audience, everyone, most of Americans watch it. "Big bang", for teens, who are busy doing other stuff, rather than watching TV in the evening. "Molly" is is having even less public than Big Bang. Charlie is fun for everyone. Bring the show back!
Charlie has made the show for 8 years. That is an accomplishment! He became the highest paid actor for a reason. He has made some mistakes obviously, but who hasn't? Bring him back. We all need our laughing therapy.
The show wil lose me as a viewer cause no one can play the part like Charlie. Suck it up producers and put Mr. SHEEN back 2 work and keep americans laughing. U take him out and that would be like takeing Lucille Ball out of I Love Lucy.
Show needs sheen. If not what happens to Rose and Berta??
We need Charlie sheen now!
@Master of Trolls..you made a good point regarding John. John is funny and made the show. They just might be able to pull it off without Charlie. On another note..I hope Charlie will get the help he needs and clean himself up.
No Charlie, no show. Well, in my opinion, that hits the nail on the head. It will never be the same without him.
Sorry Chuck, but it's the truth and you know it.
Flavor flav is available. . . If they change the name to "Two men and a BOiiiie"
Two and a half men will be a failure without charlie sheen and everyone knows it even if they don't wanna admit it......
Bog Saget. Not Full House Bob, but the *real* Bob Saget. Please. I don't even like the show, but I'd watch it if you brought on Bog Saget.
Charlie is looking like a old man chasing after young girls. The show has jumped the shark. Its all been done. Jake is too stupid to survive. His character is a load. Time to go. It wouldnt of lasted another year. Bye bye
Everyone's replaceable, numbnutz. Get over it.
your a muckhole, JJ
Two and a half men is my favorite show there is no way someone else could play Charlie's role, that role fits him, I will agree "no Charlie, no show"!
Cheers is a show that went on successfully without the character "Diane"; therefore shows can continue on without the same main characters. Sheen will not realize this as he is so self-absorbed.
hola.yo si creo que el show debe continuar! lol.we just need to fine other ruts in the show the nane it is don't mend the a have to hase two 1/2 ,men.men!!!
I stopped watching that show because I was sick of looking at his nasty a**ed haggard druggy face. The show can only improve without him.
charlie needs to get off the cr@ck & get real!!!i c pics of him all the time comin out of crappy motels with girls holdin achool!!!he aint adonis blood!!!
Bob saget!!!!! Yes!!! Bob saget would be the only way id watch that show again!!! Pick bob!!! Who you rollin with!! Bob! Bob saget!!
Everybody makes mistakes, can't they all just get over it and give us our show back? Tired of fingers being pointed, the show was great, why mess with such a winning combination of actors? It would not be the same if they replaced anyone, especially Charlie. And to those of you who are so down on him, I guess you have never done anything wrong so cast the first stone.
They should continue the show with those two big gay guys, they're entertaining.
Hey! What a minute! Didn't Charlie just say a couple of weeks ago that Rob Lowe would be a great replacement? I think Sheen sees the media interest in him waning and he's feeling a little nervous.
Charli is the show but evryone's replaceable.I hope they bring it back.
Sorry Charlie the SHOW WILL GO ON WITHOUT YOU! Can't wait for the new season to start "Two and a half men minus one". The supporting cast has made the show the success it is today, not Charlie Sheen! Glad he's gone hope to see more of Jon Cryer who is without a doubt a real funny man!
No one needs Sheen,he is a typical Hollywood LOSER.
I think Charley needs a bigger ego. If I were the shows producers I would definitely put out the show again without Charlie. I have never watched the show, but I would just to knock Charley down a peg or two just to see him Lose.
Knock him down a peg or two? He is already there. Why so
much hate. Why isn't everyone rallying to get him help? He clearly needs it.
Because "It's not show friends, it's show business." And if you're so worried you should call Dr.Drew.
Just get rid of the show already !! I'm sick of the tjhe show reruns and just want to see something new for a sitcom. If I never see Sheen, Cryer or Agnes again I won't be unhappy.
CHARLIE GET 0VER YOURSELF !!! youir on and off-sceen personas MATCH perfectly, so where's the so-called "acting talent".
I would love to see Alan room with Herb after Judith is done with him. I love the chemistry between the two men.
No charlie,no show.get it together and act like grownups.compromise and stop ruining my show.
Used to watch the show and loved it, but not only for Charlie. Jon Cryer is funny as heck. The entire cast is funny. I think Charlie has a much too inflated ego. That being said, I also think the show is done. Not because it's losing him, but because chucking out one character and bringing in another rarely works, especially on sitcoms.
having emilio take over won't work because true fans of the show know that he has already been on the show as his best friend that died.
Thank goodness I never wasted my time watching the show in the 1st. This spoiled junkie needs to be in rehab.
Get real,Charlie the gig is up.Your are a sore loser.Your are a sore loser.Forget,about suing anyone.Who,you need is God in your life.
Replace him with Judd Nelson. Back in the 80s we had to check the credits to tell them apart.
230 people...real people....really!!!!
People its just gonna be like in that 70s show when topher grace and ashton left u cant replace them with randy?? thats insanity theres a reason why when u hire actors in the begining of a show that there that good ratings will go down its not the same without the original r.i.p charflie
Oh ya charlie might want 2 put a pinch between your cheek and gums it helps obama lol
Show was good with charlie but can be great moving in a different direction getting to that point about charlie acting he cant act got bood off stage in deeetroit only way charlie can do anything on stage is if he has it written rite in front of him just like king obama
Charlie Sheen is right: it's not much of a show without him.
Woody harrelson would be an awesome replacement!!!
Winner winner chicken dinner, don't think so. Winner winner sheen dinner!!!
To tell ya the truth Charlie Sheen was the reason I didn't watch. I just didn't get how he was a ladies man. We all know what he looks like. I think if they got someone else they would bring something different. Maybe they wouldn't try to fill those exact shoes. I think if the guy was going to be a ladykiller John Stamos would be perfect and Woody is a great comedic actor and would be great. I don't think Charlie will be missed because there are so many directions the show could take now.
Charlie is the shiit!! He should do stand up. Can act and tell a good joke. He doesn't need those WRITERS! Shoot!
I've never followed this show at all-seen some episodes in syndication. And yes, Sheen was good-because he has good writers! But I think I'll actually watch the show without him just out of spite. He's a pompous ass. Being a conceited tool should in NO way be rewarded. I hope Cryer wins an Emmy!
GUESS WHAT! LET HIM BACK ON HIS SHOW. THERE ARE WORSE THINGS GOING ON IN THE WORLD. CHARLIE SHEEN DIDNT HURT NO ONE.
Charlie a word of advice stay away from the black-arts.Never be too proud to call yourself a warlock!
All that hand-wringing is a waste of time. Most shows do the exact same thing whenever the major star of the thing quits or croaks – it tries to come back for another season, stumbles along for a year or so, and collapses like a weighted down pack mule in the desert. All the "great" writing in the world for Sheen's character means nothing if it isn't spoken by Sheen. Viewers don't give a rat's rump about some actor's off screen personality – all they want is great results when those cruel unforgiving cameras roll. And for 8 long years, the Sheeninator has delivered, baby! OH, ya!
charlie i raised you better than that-why dont you realize that its you the main problem and stop passing the buck and become a responsible person for yourself foremost before others. Stop tweaking your life away! humble pie time.Your twins need a loving responsible DAD! One not blaming the world for his incignificants that never existed.
The More Charlie rants the more i want to see how the show works without him and if you can keep me watching after the first 5 minutes then the show will work without Charlie. So keep flapping them gums Charlie its free publicity and the show will payoff that 20 million settlement your gonna get with the first airings sponsors...idiot!
I don't really care about the show or Sheen.
Charlie Sheen "busted his ass?" How hard is it to film a TV show? For the actors, there is no ass-busting involved. They learn their lines and their blocking and show up, then rake in all the money. The crew is the group that busts their asses. Charlie Sheen is (was) nothing more than I highly overpaid trained monkey. Which is probably why Lorre had that vanity card at the end of Big Bang Theory last week. Come to think of it, a smoking monkey? Ha ha ha ha!
Get over yourself, Sheen!
If Chuck Lorre is so talented he should probably just start from scratch.
having been married to an adictive personality...and recovered through many years of Jungian and Buddha energy/therapy...move on. Charlie Sheen must touch the deepest depths of the ocean so that he can swim his way back to the surface of the ocean.Need we follow him? NO,that is his Journey between himself and his mother.
I meditate for you Char.
Sheen sucks as an actor!! Maybe now that he's gone is gonna have more ratings, I know I will start to watch it :) Just saying!!!
So charlie just remember that the drug will always be there lon after you are gone and forgotten about.So humble-pie time Charlie and remember its not only you but everything you in life affects others-to a lesser or greater power. But its always the greater power that does it to us. Charlie use your higher power and humble your existence. One day at a time.
He must be insane, no sane person with as little talent and innate worth as he has could possible sustain that enormous ego!
It doesn't make any difference who plays the part as long as they keep the laugh track to tell viewers when it's funny! This show, more than most others, shows clearly that Americans will watch ANYTHING as long as it doesn't require more than five neurons at the same time!
Charlie is a self-centered drug addict who needs medical help before he is nothing more than mere memory-past tense,charlie but put aside the money and listen to your dear mom who went through the rants and raves of dad-like father like son. So charlie stop your tweaking on stage and come to the sad realization that the drug will always be there long after you are gone.
....guess CNN did not agree with my previous comment. oh well. shortly said, let the man live his life, WB and Lorre need to get their heads out of their asses and realize it a business, not a social gathering. what he wants to do in his free time is up to him, let him drink, party, kick it with young women, who cares? He's a grown man, stop being his parents and give the viewers what they have been tuning into for the past 8 years. nuff said
HAHAHAHA not young girls, young WOMEN. my bad CNN lmao
Hey Charlie, are all those movie offers pouring in yet?
The show doesn't work without sheen..... its simple.... he makes the show go.... the only person you can subtract without question is the mother who can be written off....
Bob Saget is one of the least funny people I know. He sucks to be honest and sorry for being so straight forward.
Owen Wilson!!! He has the heart and the charm.
Charlie Sheen crashed and burned.
Just cast anyone else in his spot and the show will do fine. Charlie has shown himself enough that there are plenty of us that would watch the show without him just to prove to him that he isn't the one man army that he thinks he is.
I like the show but Charlie needs to stop w all the name calling & negative comments. It's getting old, is not necessary and not the way to get his job back. If the show has to end he would be as much to blame as they are. How is that being loyal to his fan?
CARLOS! COME HOME TO YOUR LATIN FANS! WE LOVE YOU AND ALWAYS HAVE! YOU'RE FUNNY AND YOU HAVE IT GOING ON MY LATIN BROTHER! TWO AND A HALF MEN IS NOTHING WITHOUT YOU! THEY NEED YOU! THAT'S THE THANKS YOU GET FOR PUTTING THEIR SHOW ON TOP. COME BACK TO YOUR LATIN ROOTS BROTHER! STAY STRONG! And REMEMBER, WE SUPPORT OUR OWN! GOD BLESS
the show.could bring Candy back and focus on her. Allan and Jake move in with Candy and keep Jydith and Berta cleaning for Candy and Allen. There could be a wacky drunk neighbor to make up for Charlie. Herb could also provide comic releaf. The show could totally move forward without Charlie.
The show has jumped the shark. They had a great run and it's time to pull the plug. Sheen has becone such a putz, that I can't eveb watch the reruns any longer. If they do go to the well to save the show, they have to kill off the character of Charlie. Give him a comical death, In the will he leaves everything to Alan but then learns that there is nothing but debt. Alan must take in a border to help pay the bills so there is your new character. You can mail me a check for the idea Mr Lorre
I completely agree, with no Uncle Charlie, what is the point? Would you tune in just for Alan, Jake and Evelyn? Not to say they aren't great actors or funny themselves but the whole show revolves around "Charlie "
Ive starting posting from the perspective of charlie sheen on tumblr:
Have never seen a single episode but if it comes back without moronic Charlie, I think I might become a loyal viewer!
This just in....................
Charlie Sheen found dead in Nevada brothel.
A white powder was found on a mirror on a table
next to a bottle of tequila and a vial of pills.
Several scantilly clad females seen running down the hall
with cash in hand.
Vegas police have secured the site.
An autopsy will be performed.
I don't understand the joy of kicking someone when they are down. Sick
I will purposely start watching this show when it's back without Charlie. I never watched it with him so it'll be a great introduction to the show for me when it's back.
The more Charlie rants the more nails CBS and Warner Bros is putting more nails in Charles coffin. Charlie doesn't get it. It hasn't sunk in that he is finished on Two and Half Men. He has lost millions dollars for all the publicity stunts he pulled he is suing CBS and Warner Bros. for 100 mil. I don't think they will be answering any of Charlies of phone calls or email. The more Charlie rants the more nails everyone in Hollywood is putting in Charlie's coffin. Not even daddy is going to be able to help him. Charlie is going to be another actor who thought he could out smart everyone but in reality he out smarted himself.
They cannot find another "half"?
I can't believe there was a show WITH him – dumbest show on earth – was always shocked by its success.
Pick John Stamos...
I cornholed Charlie last night.
And in the blink of an eye they passed him by. Sorry, Charlie...
I think NOT.... it will be funny to see the show BOMB without Charlie!
Replace this ungrateful TURD with Jim Carey.
Sorry, Jim Carey isn't interested in Lorre's job... I'm assuming he's the TURD you're speaking of. lol.
I just wish Charlie would get the help he needs and stop fighting with everyone. I was thinking that if his brother would take over, then maybe he would be alright with that,but then he probably would fight that as well.
Chuck Lorre couldn't care less if Charlie Sheen comes back.He will still wipe his butt with one hundred dollar bills everyday while Charlie urinates rusty old pennies.
It will be a good day when the POMPASS Chuck Lorre chokes and dies on a bagel!
i just love looking at two and a half men
ya right... this show without Charlie Sheen? WHAT is Lorre smoking????
I watched the show at first but then the Charlie character got to grating on my nerves. He was so crass and gross. I would sure watch it if the show came back without Charlie. Although the other characters were somewhat irritating too. The kid was kind of nasty sometimes and Alan was whiney and obnoxious. The whole thing can use an overhaul. Love Chuck Lorre shows, Big Bang, Mike and Molly so if there were some changes this may be worth watching. Do love Berta and the mom. Some of the guest stars were good too...
Lorre is a USER. Obviously money can't purchase class. lol.
Charley was the EXACT character that Lorre created and wanted... why blame the actor – place the blame where it belongs – on the creator!
The fact is CBS andchuck get one chance at this, they have to bring the show back even if its just for one more season, because of all the publicity on this they are so many on both sides of the fence who are curious about the next step so he for nothing else but the ratings they will garner for those first couple of weeks, by my guess might just be record breaking...
I am curious how all these people who haven't seen the show or only watched 2 episodes can say the ratings will skyrocket? That is like watching the 1st 2 episodes of an American Idol season and picking the winner. Yes the other characters in the show are funny, but Sheen does get the spotlight more often than not. Hell, half of the show happens in his house, how can you change that and keep the show on track? I don't approve of sheen's hobbies off-set, but I don't see anyone doing a better job on-set for this show. It just won't be the same without him. And for those of you thinking "yeah, it'll be better", atleast have watched the show a few more times before you open our mouth just because you can. Its better for people to think you're stupid than to open your mouth and prove it.
Obviously Lorre is so self absorbed and big-headed that he thinks he can replace the ONE person that made this show. Ya, let's see it. LMAO.
Charlie's over the edge. I pray this experience brings him to himself. Making millions acting is not the toughest assignment on the planet. Get over yourself Mr. Sheen.
Get over yourself Sheen. You'd be a 'has-been' if it weren't for the fact that you're a 'never-were'.
This low life forced fellow cast matesto cover for his hangovers. They had to prop him up with things on set so he wouldn't fall over. Why should they keep having to cover his lying addicted ass? He's PAST being worth $5.00/ hour, so just shut up and go away. He'll be dead from booze and drugs soon anyway so who cares? I just feeL sorry for his kids. Money will not replace a loser father no matter what you think
Charlie needs help, not hatred.
Kill Charlie off some way and have Alan's mother Evelyn, move in with him, Jake and Berta. She delivers the same kind of insulting, stinging, self-centered remarks that Charlie did. She also doesn't get along with Alan's ex-wife.
Some day, Charlie will realize he ain't the only pebble on the beach. God, save us from people like him.
charlie made a lot of mistake, but i would love to see him back, for everybody deserves a second changes,BUT if this is not the case i would love to see my Man WOODY, I LOVE THE KID. i would love to see him. GET CHEEN BACK, OR PICK WOODY, NOTHING BUT WOODY..
Apology, THEN forgiveness. There is nothing Lorre can do as long as Chuckles keeps talking.
The Show has always centered on Charlie and his shenanigans. It won't work without him since the characters Alan & Jake were more of a punch line for Charlie as Berta played their mother figure with many of her punch lines, and their mom was a breeze in Charlie's wind. Besides all of Charlie's shenanigans on and off the show, we do admire his talents that he has brought unto the small screen, especially the chemistry that he has formed with his girlfriend-soon was supposed to be his wife on the show- Jennifer Taylor!
The bottom line is that Charlie is the catalyst of this chemical reaction that we call, "Two & a 1/2 Men"! Should the Parent Company and all the major participants proceed without Charlie, they would be better off creating a new show that has a new name since the current name will always stands for Charlie and his on-going shenanigans because of what he does and say on the show are actually the most inner feelings of most men that are his age; he actually connected with viewers big time; he knows it, and why not?
This show will be NOTHING without Charlie. Hate him or love him, HE made it work! Funny to see ugly little men like Lorre who think that they can perform miracles on their own.

I can't believe people are still grumbling about Charlie Sheen. He got exactly what he deserved. I've never been a Charlie Sheen fan therefore have never even watched the show. He may have lots of money but he's so over thank goodness. Once his stupid tour is over he's done. I don't think anyone is stupid enough to work with him again. Why on earth would Chuck Lorre want him back? Charlie bragged about how much money that he has put in Lorre's pockets, well Lorre put probably almost as much of that money back in Charlie's pocket even though he didn't deserve it. He's been overpaid for way too long. As far as Lorre, he has all the money he needs or will ever spend probably so he sure don't need Charlie anymore even though it's a top rated show. Shows come and go and it's time for the show to go. Or hopefully Charlie will be replaced with someone who can make the show a bigger success than it already was. That would really whiz Charlie off!! LMAO!
People that think the show would be better without him don't watch the show. The only one the show can do without is the kid. Sheen is the main focus if the show without him its not two and a half men. A spin off with the brother and his girlfriend maybe. But not two and a half men. Sheen and Jon make the show can't do it without either one of them. I won't watch the show without him. It was a great show and one of my favorites and really funny
I will poke my eyes out with a stick if Bob Saget is a replacement.
I believe the show will bomb without Charlie, the actors all have a repore, they work well together. Also we would not be human if we did not make mistakes. I believe the producer/creator needs to rethink the situation.
Charlie Sheen is two and a half men! without him it would be a different show, a crappy one ! just give him some coke or something he is funny even when his not trying to be :P GO SHEEN!!!!http://bit.ly/jXCsUb
I'll bet if you ask him, his guest spot on Friends is the only reason Jennifer Aniston has a career. Let's just look at it by the numbers... Charlie has starred in two sitcoms.. one of them, the ratings went from 30something place to 50something place the second he joined the cast (though he did get a gimme Globe just for showing up). Men hasn't done bad, (and he even won an ALMA for it). So Chuckles is 1 for 2.
Lorre has created or produced on "Rosanne" (#1, 17 Emmys, 14 Globes), "Cybill" (Emmy, 2 Globes in 4 seasons), "Dharma & Greg" (1 Globe, 8 noms, 6 Emmy noms), "Grace Under Fire" (#1, multiple noms), "Big Bang Theory" (1 Emmy, 1 Globe, multiple noms, ratings better every year), and a brand new show called "Mike & Molly" (too soon to tell). I don't like that Butler chick, and I think the best episode of Dharma and Greg was on Family Guy, so let's call it 4 for 5 with one still in play.
I think if they decide to bring back Men, it will do ok. And if not, well there's still an easy way to figure out who wins. Who has a steady job and a new show on television? Who has a one-man show that's "sold-out" with tickets going for less than face value on the secondary market?
Forgot to mention... Lorre did all that while going up against the likes of "Frasier" "Friends" and "Seinfeld" ... Chuckles has been protected by being the best show on the worst night.
Charlie guest-starred on Friends? I don't even remember that LOL.
Seriously though, I like the idea of Scott Baio filling in, but I think it would make more sense that they have a half brother from their father's side rather than mother's. Megan Mullaly is also a good idea.
How about Dave Coulier? I don't think he's doing anything right now.
And someone suggested Christian Slater, but he is currently doing a show on Fox "Breaking In".
Bring back Charlie!!!
I agreed, cause charlie is the show and without him it would never be the same.. but i would love to see woody try.. respect
The show has run its course. Even if he had stayed ht only had a yr or so. The writing predictable, Charlie too old, Alan to annoying Jake too STUPID to live. Say goodnight Gracie. R.i.p.
Just run it without Charlie and call it "Two Men"
that was hilarious!
I dont care about charlie! what i care about is that the gas prices are too damn high! the baby boomers f*c*ed up this country with they greed!! I hate the babt boomers!
Bob Saget?! How did he get an audition?
I like the Megan Mulally suggestion,I don't think you can go with another male.
It's she on Parks & Recreation though?
It wont be the same without charlie i wont watch it give him his show back
SCOTT BAIO IS YOUR ANSWER CHUCK. HAVE THE MOTHER HAVE ANOTHER SON. YOU CAN MAKE IT REALLY FUNNY TOO BY WRITING IN THAT EVERYONE KNEW ABOUT HIM EXCEPT FOR ALLAN EVEN JAKE THE SON KNEW HE HAD ANOTHER UNCLE. HAVE PICTURES ALL AROUND THE HOUSE OF HIM WITH ALL THE OTHER CAST MEMBERS. YOU CAN MAKE IT REALLY HILARIOS.( SORRY DR SHOW DIDNT LIKE YOUR IDEA) CHUCKDON'T FORGET TO CALL ME!
That`s not a good idea. Not at all.
Howard from Big Bang Theory counts cards in Vegas, wins everything the disappeared Charlie has plus the Casino making himself mega-rich.
He proceeds to try to become the playboy he imagines Charlie to have been and hires Jon Cryer and Angus as consultants.
I only watched the show 2 times and didn't find Charlie funny at all. Only a pathetic self indulged self centered loser who got paid to be a loser and take advantage of any woman he could. What a poor example of a man-losers want to emulate losers!!!
I have stop watching cbs thy should of made stand when he was abusing his wife not because the guy has been doing what he always does hire him back just make sure he knows its a work place respect the job charlie I love u the best actor ever noones perfect
He may be a crazy wacko but he's right. He made that show what it is and he made those people their money. Nobody watched that stupid show for the nerd or the fat kid.
Warlock ring a bell?? Charlie is mentally ill and needs help. Two n half men was great series and it won't be worth watching.
Y can't it b herb to replace charlie? Judth kicks him to the curb to! Make a story of it, herbs caricture is funny. At least give it a go.
Sheen is the show u dips
He must be doing something right cause even the ones who don't seem to care for him are takeing the time to write about him. Charlie is a awesome person and I wish more people in this world were as real as he is. More power to him.
WHERE WAS HIS PUBLICIST AND AGENT? HE WAS THE HOTTEST ACTOR IN THE US!
I think his publicist quit. Not easy to make a turd smell good.
Judging by the scant number of 'No Sheen, No Show' postings, Sheen must still be looking for an intern and moved into the writing sample portion of the screening process. There is no job in America that allows you to disrespect your boss, come to work wholly unprepared (when and if you come to work) and publicly disparage your co-workers, only to go on without any consequence. The show will likely do great without him. People will watch out of curiosity and, as Lorre's words have won awards for other actors, he will continue to deliver. Down South, we have a saying 'one monkey don't stop no show!' Charlie Sheen is about to be that monkey.
unfortunately looks like charlie sheen's addictions have got the best of him so far. The words coming out of his mouth are probably 'crack talk.' crack can make u feel and act or talk aggressive. Charlie got mad and said some stuff about the show's producers. Now he got fired and realizes he needs more crack money and that he made a mistake but he still on crack with whatevr money he got left. So to get crack $ any way possible he now stays high and does interviews where everyone laughs and wonders at all he says (more crack talk). Now he is doing anything he can to make crack $. He gets high on crack and goes out on stage on tour. I believe if u attend these shows u r putting crack $ directly in his pockets. i have known people who have done this drug and seen how crazy they can be. Sad but true. Charlie needs to wake up before it is too late for him. Sad that producers enabled/encouraged and profited off his drug habit. Shame on hollywood for most of the thoughtless trash it sells4realcheap:(
Two and half men just would not be the same with out Charlie. ... Charlie made the show What it is!
So true and all his antics have given the show a ton of publicity. Good or bad publicity is publicity. If they hired him back I think the show would be even more popular! Say you are sorry Charlie and go get help to show them you are serious!
Get over it!!!.. Poor Charlie without this stupid show.. What does he have left?.. Tons of money and women.. Must suck to be Charlie.. Shut up and grow up!!.. Your BS is really getting boring...
sheen is a drunk man doin nothin cool!!!!hes a no good b!otch!!!
Yup, I am totally certain.
So Charlie is still alive? Are you sure? -Art
He's got legs, and he knows how to use them. . .
I might actually watch the show if Sheen's not in it. Bob Saget??? Oh please NO!
The difference between seeing Charlie Sheen live and Bob Saget Live: There is less swearing and cleaner material in a Charlie Sheen Show. You only feel like you need a shower after a Charlie Sheen Show. Bob Saget you feel like you need a Bleach Shower.
What the he'll is a bleach shower?
The Honest Truth – I think getting out at the right time, while exploiting Sheen's growing problem, is exactly what Lorre had in mind. Sheen's rep is bad, Lorre's is good. Lorre has leverage to get more out of his next deal while Sheen may have to take a break. Our actors need some help in dealing with their show's creators.
The only things that have ever made that show funny was the antics of Alan, Jake & Rose. I've always found Charlie's character both offensive & repulsive. It's unfortunate that the man is so psychotic that he insults his own family & refuses help. Move on without him. If the show is well written, has a strong storyline, & the rest of the cast continues to deliver the quality performances that they have come to be known for, I think the show will do just fine. Maybe nnw the show can show a little class!
The Honest Truth – your post isn't very honest, and it isn't truthful either. Lorre did not create Will and Grace, he helped make Grace Under Fire. He may be accomplished but he still owes that particular televÍsio n show's fans, investors, and employees a duty to keep the show going and profitable, esp when it is breaking records. Sounds like he wanted to get out at the right time and screw over the show's best actors.
I really don't think that he was out to screw any actors, nor screw over the biggest money making show currently on the air. This was an eight year run of a television series, very well close to other more popular shows that ran as long or as close.
If you want to get really honest? Both of these men (Sheen and Lorre) have things going on that we have been very unfortunate to view from a fish eye perspective. Yes. He let Sheen do this show completely wasted for eight years, but Sheen was wasted for eight years and that started to effect not only how he acted? But it also affected *how he looks* That among anything is a major commodity in Hollywood.
What it boils down to in simple terms is sort of simple: Your top money maker becomes out of control and its time to do something. None of us really know what the *Something is going to be* but whatever it is...The show staying on the air and succeding, or failing...the show completely yanked? Charlie Sheen is just not going to be asked back.
The money train has stopped for both of these men. One is going to fair better than the other. And in the scheme of things it is going to be Lorre. He'll write anecdotal vanity cards on semi so so Comedy Shows while Sheen gets heckled on tour and shoots off letters like this to TMZ trying to look for a replacement goddess. Someone is currently not fairing well in this. And that is probably Mr. Sheen. Just saying.
Meanwhile everyone on the crew is being moved about to other projects and the supporting actors are using their time to pursue other things (Cryer and his first love of "Legitimate Theater" and the young 1/2 man dropping an amazing amount of weight for other projects) The world is moving on for them. The way the world should be when things come to a natural (or unnatural) end.
This in the scheme of things is an oddity footnote in the annals of Hollywood and Television. The year a major television show went off the air because of Tiger Blood and Vanity Cards. Sheen and Lorre will becomes 24 Down and 32 Across respectively in the online crossword puzzle of TV Guide in three years while the new show "The Grotowsky's" the hit series on NBC pulls in massive ratings.
You guys just have to find someone else to fill Charlie Sheens shoes. How about Scott Baio? I can definitely see him playing that role. All you have to do is have their mother find out that she had another son. I think he would be great and he would really appreciate this opportunity of a lifetime unlike Charlie Sheen. Chuck call me if you want more brilliant ideas lol
(Opening of Season Nine of Two and a Half Men)
Cut to: Outside of woods of of highway night. An overturned car has a man with a bowling shirt on. He is upside down and you cannot see his face. A fith of Jack Daniels is in his hand. Police and fire trucks are pulled away. The car is smoking. Two cops stand by a police car
Cop 1: We have to do something! We have to get that guy out of there!
Cop 2: I think he's dead. (Pause) Oh wait! I think I saw him move!
Cops start to move a step foward. The car explodes
Cop 2: Nope. He's dead. We should probably call the place where he lives.
Cop 1: Yea. So anyway, I'm still looking for a place to live is your couch open?
Cop 2: No.
Cop number one is Scott Baio! If you want to teleconference this with Lorre, Trixie...I'm all over it. :)
First, there`s no way a mother can not know she had a child. That`s ridiculous. Second, the introduction of Scott Baio was shallow. Even an idiot-magnet show like Two and a Half Men needs a sliver of depth in the storytelling.
Why can't they do like Good Times or MASH did, have the person's character get killed off the show? One and A Half Man.
The last time I looked, the show is called 2 1/2 men not the charlie sheen show. If the show doesn't continue to be the same without charlie then cancel it find something different to replace it, t.v. shows don't last forever. Get over it and move on with something better.
"I busted my ass for 8 years to support your vision" The most honest thing to come out of that rant. He spent eight years supporting "Chuck Lorre's vision" Not his. Lorre's. The show made Charlie Sheen richer than he would ever thought he would be. Mr. Lorre was already doing pretty dang with with Will and Grace under his belt all of those years. Just like you can always be replaced at your office job calling your boss a p***y and you might have support from your friends and some co-worker? That boss is not going to give your job back, and there are others willing to take your job.
For those with ADD Mr. Sheen started his crazy rant like this "When he was still employed" This letter is the reason why he got fired. The man who "Created The Vision" no longer needs this sort of nuts.
As for me? In the eight years of Two and a Half Men I have watched "One Episode" That was around the time Sheen got bounced. None of my patronage went to this show, and I'm glad that it didn't. Gosh guys. This show is just plain bad and can only be compared to shows in other prime slots on the schedule like Family Matters, which was god awful too. The show was watched because in the scheme of television lately? It was this sitcom or another crappy reality show. This was less crappy. Be it as it may. This letter shows me why he got fired in the first place, and why in the real world of non television we are all reminded of this:
"If you call your boss a P***y, you better have a box ready to pack up your desk, because that is your last day.
No Sheen, NO SHOW , He made the show . Can't replace him ever...........
Charlie Sheen is obsolete. NEXT!
Check and mate!
Love or hate Charlie, he makes the show. Lorre/Sheen – come to an agreement with each other and continue the show.
No Charlie, no show. Even though I agree with this, I do think kicking Charlie out was right. He was my least favorite character. the show will definitely suffer but i think will still watch because even though there is no sheen, there still is hilarious writers who make the funny, not sheen.
Homeboy needs to get over himself. Warner Bros and CBS were around long before him and I'm sure there not going bankrupt without Sheen. The tiger blood, winning and "the goddesses" were fun for a week. Now it's getting old and pathetic. And now the shows moving on and he's F'd.
Seriously, folks... it's a sitcom. You deliver lines written by a writer. Sheen's performance is far from monumental or even memorable. The only reason the show wouldn't succeed without him is because some might find it hard to deal with change, not because Sheen is the only one who could play that role. His mental state aside, it's just as insane for anyone to think that his acting (post Hot Shots: Part Deux!, Major League 2 and... well, other things) is exceptional in any way. There are a lot more people who have contributed to the show's success... mostly the ones who showed up for 'practice.'
Mentioning Sharon Tate wasn't even close to funny. Very tacky!
Sorry, Charlie. Starkist wants .....
You trying to scare the warlock with mysterious gynaecological disorder excuses ?
Charlie really messed up a good thing. He needs help, but he has to want it first. He must hit rock bottom...unfortunately, his rock bottom will most likely be drug overdose and death. I feel for his family and friends.
No charlie no show! it wouldnt be a show without him! hes the reason why people watch the show! he plays the role best! if u replace charlie with someone else ull lose alot of watchers! its charlies show! he makes the show! just give him his raise and continue the show WITH HIM(CHARLIE)
I can be the new uncle Charlie... Im a pot smokin womanizing alcoholic... ;;)
Gonna be at Sharon Tate's house if anyone needs me...
Move on. The show's had its time. Charlie's a sick, mentally ill narcissistic ass who has burned his bridges.
Replace him with Alec Baldwin.....show won't miss a beat.
The APA (American Psych Assoc) has been after our right to party like wild rockstars and do things that you couldn't even dream about by fabricating mental illnesses and using wierd ugly psycho drugs to make Americans obese and ugly (sorry). The APA needs to loosen up and realize that partiers are some of the most accepting, liberal, and fun people in the world.
Your comment just reaffirms my thought that people should need a license to breed.
Also, people who cannot spell five-letter words should keep their thoughts to themselves.
New Charlie-less show premise: New season begins with everyone wondering where Charlie is, after he didn't return from a trip to Las Vegas as scheduled. Guy shows up with the keys to the house. Seems he won the house and it's contents from Charlie gambling. Charlie was whacked out on coke at the time. Charlie is now somewhere in rehab. (That leaves room for him to come back if he ever makes nice.) New guy lets Alan and Jake live there - maybe because he promised Charlie, maybe because he's a "hey, whatever" kind of guy. New guy essentially fills Charlie's role without being Charlie.
Sheen is by far one of the coolest partiers in the world! If he is 46 and still partying, in NYC with the most beautiful women in the world, and willing to put his career at risk, then maybe just maybe he might enjoy it. He did need to chill out a little.
Was Sheen invited to the royal wedding? Just wondering....
There is no two and a half men without charlie sheen! i for one wont watch it if they try! you rock charlie!
Is this really so hard ? Thew new star should be Denise Richards. Its a fresh start to have a woman as whatever the opposite word for womanizer is. This character would cause Allen fits.
I think charlie made the show. but the rest of the cast were awesome as well. if sheen goes the show will not have that same chemistry with anyone else. kinda like when phil hartmann tragically died and they replaced him with jon lovitz. hey lovitz is great but wasn't great enough to save newsradio. (one of the best sitcoms ever!)
Oh....and Hot Shots Part Deux
Well, I like Charlie and even tho he seems to have gone off the deep end, I am sure we are only hearing one side of the story.. Lorre has issues too... Together they made a great show, but I am afraid this show will never be the same since Charlie's gone. RIP Two and a half Men...
Its been all downhill since Hot Shots
Without Sheen, the show makes absolutely no sense. What r u gonna call it? One and a half men? Just ask ER how well it worked out for them replacing cast members. As more and more of the original cast left, the ratings got lower and lower.
Note to Chuck Lorre...if you're serious about replacing him, don't go with Jeremy Piven. You'll just have the same problems again.
Platoon and Wall Street were the only good movies "Carlos Estevez" ever did and that was like 100 years ago. I hope his enablers, enable him enough to reach Tom Sizemore status into obscurity. Charlie Sheen is a total zero! Tiger blood!? Warlock!? Ha! 46-year old (who looks 56) druggie loser – way to set an example for your children you pompous has been ass hat!! I pray this anal fissure of a man does himself in sooner than later...
Do you have anything better to do? I don't so I'm replying to your massively ignorant comment. The total zero is you buddy. What is your profession? Fry cook at micky Ds? Haha
He needs help, but he has made the show! Bring him back and get him
the help he needs-
Actually the massive zero is YOU and you state it so clearly in your post. Now go wipe your ass and brush your teeth! The only poop I want to smell in the room while you're filming me backdoor your mother, is her's on my shnutz. 'Haterz' your spelling of the word
says volumes about you, it's almost too easy.
Everytime this "thing" opens its mouth it loses more of the precious few brain cells it has left. I would have enjoyed "Men" had someone else been cast in the part, maybe Rob Lowe. I watched two episodes with Sheen and wondered who could keep down dinner. Bugger off...you're a has been who's used and been used up.
Why does everyone hate Sheen? Why ? He's freaking awesome. He may be a has been, but your a never been Lisa.
I think they should hire Megan Malolly from "Will and Grace" to play the female version of Sheen's character...she'd bring that show right back to the top!
Sorry, that's "Mullally."
OH GOD YES !!! I'd watch that in heartbeat. That woman is fantastic.
seriously? Bob Saget? he's the anti-Charlie! never got drunk in his life! ugottabekiddinme!!
Bob Saget ?? you apparently have never seen Bob on stage for his comedy routine. He makes Sheen look like Shirley Temple. Bob kinda has that leftover image from "Full House" in real life...OMG !! one of the dirtyest comedy shows I'd seen in awhile.
Wake up people! This country watches the show because Charlie Sheen plays HIMSELF! Hes the male Snooky! Everyone likes to watch train wrecks and then say "omg, what a shame!". All these actors and doctors and professionals that have an opponion all just want to capitalize on the limelight! What kind of ratings would Snooky hitting a telephone pole drunk get?? And everyone would say we should have done this or done that? the sick part is all the kids that want to be like these losers!
love the comment about sheen maybe being called to be on dancing with the stars in ten years or so.
unfortunately, he will probably be long dead by then.
Are they also cancelling Dos Hombres y Medio, the Spanish version?
lol thats so funny..
like him or not with out charlie the show will die. it is what it is.
I tired of Charlie Sheen long ago. He basically just plays himself on the show. I really like Berta and Jake and the rest of the cast. I think the show can make it without Charlie. He is too arragant and, like my parents used to say, he got too big for his britches. What a shame for him. Plus, his antics affect other people.
do any of you Charlie supporters realize he did NOT write the show? Actors help with a character but if Chuck didn't put those words in front of Charlie his character would his crazy rantings from his tour? Lorre has written the network several very successful TV shows. Charlie did make Chuck, Chuck put his career back on the map.
correction. Charlie DID NOT make Chuck.
Sheen's dog and pony show will be over soon. For many folks, his show was retarded and boring, but for some it was just mildly entertaining. I had to laugh out loud after reading " I busted my a** for 8 years! " LMAO, Do you guys know what he did in the 2 1/2 men sitcom? He read someone else's funny scripts. This is too funny! Wow how tiring. The 2 1/2 men show is nothing without John Cryer. He is the one who made the show funny, not sheen. As usual sheen sat on a couch, legs effeminately crossed and "read" his lines. THAT'S IT. Were the line's funny? Yes, because they were WRITTEN for him. John is the reason 2 1/2 men sitcom is a hit. Now everyone that worked on 2 1/2 men should be put out of misery now that sheen is out of the picture.
Chuck has work to do, and that is with John Cryer.
@master, nobody is perfect and he did showed up to read his line and made us laught the show would never be the same without him, and no co-worker can replace him.. but most important you need to understand no one is perfect.. WINNING...
No Sheen, No show. Pure and simple...its the BEST reality show on the air. NOBODY CARES about ANY of the supporting cast; any of them can be replaced and we would STILL watch because ALL MEN live vicariously through Charlie Harper.
That's really sad. I believe there are beautiful, deep, cool men out there who don't live vicariously thru a shallow, drug addict, bad father loser like Charlie. Men who "live" vicariously thru Charlie are lonely and damaged souls:(
Really Silverado?!?! You wouldn't bang two chucks at once if you had the chance? Pansy!
Hey, "Bewitched" got a new Darren, nobody noticed, and the show continued to be a success.
That was back in the 1900's; when there was three channels and two shows. People had to keep watching.
Exactly, there weren't a whole lot of choices and Darrin wasn't the main character. Sheen is a main character in this show.
Personally, I don't think that the show will be the same with a replacement, Sheen made his character. However, who the heck would want to work with all these other people after knowing you aren't welcomed back. That would be awkward and quite frankly, this whole thing is basically beating a dead horse.
Also switched characters and storyline emphasis on MASH and Cheers. 2 1/2 Men has a strong ensemble. They can pick up the pieces and move on. I'm hoping for Jeremy Piven. They can transition and focus a bit more on the Alan and/or Evelyn and/or Berta characters. I'm totally disgusted with the way Charlie Sheen has caused this fiasco and continues to only think of himself. I can't wait to see the show without him and will definitely give it a chance when it comes back!
Sorry folks. No matter what you say or think. The show will attract attention for a short time but it will just never be as good or as watched. Yes he's got lots of issues, but CBS will be losing a lot of money over this. No other way to look at it.
Charlie is just a being himself. for all haters why bother reading, let alone replying? Are your lives that boring you have nothing better to do then run others down? or maybe you are just a bored kid that`s a fail in life.
money,money,money,money NO money, money,money
Get a different show. Maybe a cleaner one.
I can't get over how much people get into tv shows! They're f~ing retarded.
When let see what happen, people like the show because of sheen, he wasn't acting he was being himself. Anybody except chalie we be fake and you no how much people hate sake.
OMG did you spend the afternoon with LoserSheen getting stoned? Oh, here... let me phrase it in a way you'll understand....
Chalie are no gun to get bark in that shoe!
I no like sake either.
Be nice you two ge'ez maybe English is not the persons first language. Mean people suck!!
Enough of him surreal life is waiting for him along with all the other washed up stars. If he sobers up maybe he will get a call from dancing with the stars in ten years.
Love him or hate him the show will not survive without him. These actors just all fit together, and with the story line with Rose they will not be able to replace him. I for one will not watch. He showed up for work without fail and his co workers had not problem with his work ABC has made yet another blunder with their shows and they will pay dearly.
You mean CBS, not ABC. ABC has more respect than to hire good old Charlie
Idol survived without simon or paula, and it thought to fair out differently but look at it now. A new and better star will emerge to replace the 'LOSER' that is charlie
Did you seriously say american idol? A reality show? A reality show based on other peoples talents, judged by washed out performers with no other career path? Wow u are not that smart!!!
So your saying Charlie should be a judge on American Idol?
Charlie Sheen is totally winning and he has a valid point. Two and a half men will succk without him
IT SUCKED WITH HIM!!!! SERIOUSLY....WHO IS STILL WATCHING THIS SHOW??? IT'S NO LONGER 2 1/2 MEN...THE KID LOOKS OLDER THAN THE 2 OF THEM PUT TOGETHER AND IS TWICE AS TALL AS BOTH PUT TOGETHER.
Charlie is the show!
I suspect he would drop the lawsuit if they took him back.
No one wins if he isn't acting on Men...
He did help make Men the #1 show on TV.
Lorre and Warner Bros crated or fed Charle's ego and drug problems. What's different ...? Chuck Lirre had his ego bruised.
Bring Charlie back!
I won't watch it without him...
right, the kid is just doing what everybody do, party hard when you have money.. i hope people understand there wont be no show without charlie.. respect
If the show fails, it fails. They no longer can work with Sheen. He's dangerous & unstable. He made more money than the annual bugets of cities. He's finished.
I've never enjoyed the show and just did not get it? One guy is a geek the other is a freak and the kid seemed overweitht and lazy. Only one I feel for is the the heavy set woman with all the wize cracks. Seriously, the one who plays the dad was a whimp, in his chacter, can't get/keep a woman. And Charlie, is totally disgusting. Cancel the show, put something else on. I wouldn't want my kid watching this crap.
The issue with "Men" is that the "star" may well be mentally ill. The show would be just as good without him or with a stable replacement, The cast is excellent and can carry the show. Set an example for kids of today that you can't behave badly and profit from it!
What a loser. I guess reality set in when he realized his phone hasn't rung once for a new gig. Tom Cruise has got to smiling like there's no tomorrow. Loser Loser Chicken Whiner
Charlie this has been done before , quite recently actually. Can't remember the actor however he did a stupid interview on late night TV.
Who cares what the spoiled coked up manchild thinks now that he says he's sober.
Apparently no one gives a crap anymore, look at how few comments now compared to months ago.
Personally I'm fine with my CBS stock, tv production studios deal with massive egos regularly. You can't just hand over the keys to the daycare center and let the kids do whatever they want, in the end it's not good for business and anyone who claims otherwise is being short sighted.
They say that no man is an island but charlie sheen is. problem is thats its an island of one.
Face it, if you don't make a deal with Mr. Sheen then the show will lose money. By taking Sheen's stunts personally, Lorre (the show's creator) is defrauding investors because he is letting personal issues get in the way of the programs financial and artistic performance. I would not inve
st in Lorre again if the show gets cancelled or if he can't bring back one of the hottest shows on TV. Give Mr. Sheen his raise and get those ratings back up!
Nope.com Sheen is over, and the show will go on. Charlie could be replaced by a smoking monkey, and the ratings would skyrocket.
Lol.. Yeah a smoking monkey. I love them.
DO IT !
Charlie Harper is a womanizer, any of the proposed future Charlies do not have "enough" characters to fill this role. Easy to replace an actor but not that easy to replace something in people minds for 8 years.
If someone was suing me for 100 million, I wouldn't hire them back. It sounds like Charlie has sobered up and realized that he made a big stupid mistake.
too little too late – charlie has burned his bridges. he's an arrogant SOB and nobody wants him back. i would watch the show with someone new taking his place.
Please pick woody,it would be a whole new show. I love watching him.
Sheen is a loser. ..put his brother on juuust to wizz on chuckles
What is it with these people? From Trump to Palin to Sheen they are so full of themselves its amazing. None of these people are as good as they think. I cannot watch any of them, I've never see the show Sheen is talking about but reading his rants I'm glad I never did. Do these people really think the world revolves around them or what?
Interesting, Emilio Estevez is pretty funny without Charlie's emotional baggage. You could start with a funeral after charlie's sudeden death (therby writing him completely out of the series0 where a long lost brother or half-brother (played by Emelio Estevez) meets family for the first time. the caharcter played by Emelio could move in, meet family and friends. Every week there could be a joke (at charlie's expense) where people comment the Emelio character is 10X the person (man) that Charlie ever was...
Trash with money , is still just trash.
Sheen has that backwards, there's no show WITH him. Lorre if you take that freak back you'll lose this viewer.
I would love to see Woody Harrelson. I love that guy. Pick him!! Pick Him!!
Didn't look like they had any concern framing Sheen as a incompetant actor and druggie in the media for their pleasure .
Estevez already played Charlie's best friend on the show and died. Don't think that would work.
Personally, Sheen is Charlie Harper and Charlie is Sheen. He's the character we enjoyed all these years, so I don't completely understand why fans would be against him coming back once he could reconcile (rehab) himself.
CHARLIE SHEEN IS THE MAN, HE IS JUST NOT PERFECT JUST LIKE ANYBODY ELSE, BUT I WOULD LOVE TO SEE WOODY COME UP ON THAT SHOW. RESPECT
It was a cute and funny show that was based on men's egotistical nature and the persona Sheen played fed into his ego. He saw himself as THAT character 100% – all that and a bag of chips. Writing in a new character will be hard but not impossible. I believe Emilio made appearance in show so did several other actors over the years so it will be difficult to use any of them. However I am interested to see what Lorre does with this and wish him success. A good comedy is welcome compared to the reality shows and crime dramas.
Some stars forget the great writers that made them. Watching Sheen go totally insane must bring his family alot of pain. I really wish he was just joking.
WIN WIN WIN....YES......WE WON!!! No Charlie Sheen AND no show....no that's the TRUE "WIN " combination!!!!
I won't watch the show without Charlie. For all you trolls that are trying to convince the public that this show will make without sheen, good luck. Would threes company make it without Ritter? Married with children with out Ed oniel? Sienfeld without Jerry? I think not. This show would be lucky to make a full season without sheen. The show won't work. Sheen will disappear for 5 or 10 years then come back big time like he always does. I don't even care about sheen but talent is talent. So go ahead and try to convince yourselves and the public that this show will make it. I won't hold my breath. LoL
Wrong wrog wrong Charlie....2 1/2 men has one of the best supporting casts on tv. Jon Cryer actually runs circles around you as does Conchatta Farrell and even Angus. Yeah Sheen is funny but his character is basically him and to tell you the truth it's getting old. I say give it another season without him and I think the show ill at least hold it's own.
No, they shouldn't bring Sheen back. They can figure out a way,to write him out of the show. I enjoyed all the other actors in the show. Sheen is a broken down old druggie, that will continue to ruin it for everyone else on the show.
That show is so pathetic with or with sheen, and if your the type of brainless moron that watches that kind of crap get off the couch fatty and get a hobby. Sheen, if your reading this, you suck-but dude, your funny as hell and please keep your dosage up.
as i stated many weeks ago. no charlie, no show no charlie, no show. just do a spin off and be done with the series. been on long time and the actors did their time. kid is getting too grow up anyway. just cancel and let the "others" move on with their careers.......... no charlie, no show!!!!!
its true. he plays himself in the show. there is no 2 an half men without him. sagot? kidding right? i wont watch any new ones. its to bad. but theres 4-5 seasons worth of reruns to watch.
sheen will be disappointed to see that he isnt so great of an actor...he is no comic genius, no john ritter or whatever...the shows existence is due to the writers, and there are a hundred guys who can do just as good as him
I wish this clown just O/D and get it over with. I'm so sick of hearing about this jerk. Hey Charlie, your 15 minutes of fame are up so why don't you just snort yourself into oblivion
