It's been awhile since we last watched Miley Cyrus on the small screen, but the 19-year-old actress looked right at home in her guest appearance on "Two and a Half Men" Thursday night.
Cyrus portrays Missi, the daughter of one of Walden's (Ashton Kutcher) friends who briefly stays with the guys as a house guest.
The former "Hannah Montana" star described her outspoken (and lightly clothed) character as "in your face and blunt" when talking about the gig on Ryan Seacrest's radio show Thursday. "It's really fun and they've never really had a girl character come on like that," she said.
Cyrus added that she's wanted "to work with Ashton forever, and I couldn’t really take time away to do a movie from my record right now. So, we wanted to work together, then we thought ‘Two and a Half Men’ would be the quick and easy way to do it. It turned out to be something that I loved so much I came back for a second episode."
One critic thought the star brought "sexy back" to the CBS sitcom, while another thought she looked like "a bombshell Tinkerbell." But one thing that isn't subjective is her ability to draw an audience, as "Men's" ratings were at a season high Thursday. The episode was watched by 13.6 million viewers and had a 4.0 rating in the 18-49 adult demographic.
If you missed the episode, check out a few of the clips below - what do you think of Cyrus' performance?
Trailer Trash Tinker Belle! LOL, I love it!
she is basically a disturbance in her performance...
It was a decent episode. She basically played herself (talking a mile-a-minute). But it was funny.
we talked boo
I turned it off soon as I seen her.... If I'd known she was gonna be on I'd have never turned it on....
i love the way miley is wired , who she is and i love it what a free person and that scares people who are a scared of freemom
In high school I knew a girl who could put a whole beer can in her mouth. She was very popular
talks too much
Isn't she from the Deep South like Honey Boo Boo? I wonder if she has twelve or fifteen fingers on each hand like people do in Georgia?
Hey ignorant Stan I wonder if you have a tiny dick like people in the north.
I believe Barry is right about you Stan.... You probably just tickle women to death with that little thing.
Miley talks too much
Well that just makes her normal.Most young women her age talk a lot,I like it.
Miley was so funny on Two And A Half Men she sounded like Hony Boo Boo.
i do need my charlie sheen fix...hope to see him on television soon.
Catch Charlie on Anger Management on FX. Show is great.
Miley does not work it that well.
Miley is so freaking beautiful and I just love her,she's funny and sweet.
Miley talks too much.

In the file.
is highly regarded in the industry and people will always be behind her.
When she talks it scares my children. They think she is Ike from SouthPark.
I bet she could fit a softball in it if she wanted. Or two Big Macs plus fries.
I heard people down south all have big giant mouths like that. Years ago there wasn't lots of food in the south. They used their big mouths to store food for the winter. Kind of like chipmunks.
I agree. Strangest looking mouth in the planet. Almost deformed. Maybe it was a birth defect.
It's a natural thing for storing food. All people down south have huge mouth holes.
Queen of the trailer park. Plus has a tar ded looking mouth.
She has the oddest looking mouth on the planet. Is she an alien or part hippopotamus?
Daaamn,I'd do her in a Burger King bathroom,this chick looks hot as h*ll with that short blond hair.
I still cant get over that bottle blonde hair..does not look good on Miley! The short hair is bad enuf the color is over the top!
I'll say it anyway... I'd be on her like a fat kid on a cupcake.
She was great!
IMT IMT...i like this kid...she's ok
I thought she did a great job. It was one the funniest shows in a long time
Do I even have to say it?
I thought Miley was GREAT!! I like 2 1/2 men but she mad it so much funnier!!!
She was actually hilarious. I hope she would become a regular on the show, it was getting boring until she showed up.
I think Miley did a fine job,never watched her before but she MADE the show. Will we hate on all little girls with good job and talent,or is it personal? How sad.
Miley is an adorable child and mentions to everyone in her town the good and the bad.
awsome young lady..the young teens still love her!
on a hacker–we do
I can hardly even look at her. Her mouth just seems too large for her face. When she talks I'm afraid the top part of her face/head might fall off. It's like her mouth goes all the way around her head.
I love the amount of people that has their head up their ass, talking about someone's mouth being too big.
Hannah Montana looks great,I would love her big mouth to be around my head.
I think she has the funniest looking huge mouth in the whole world. It looks abnormally large to me.
Except for the freakishly cropped bleached hair, the smoking, and the tattoos, Miley Cyrus is a very attractive young woman. I hate it when girls who are exceptionally cute do their best to try to look scary. Penguins don't do that.
Please don't ever bring Charlie back. The man is a real life pig and many people would not watch if you brought him back, it would just show bad taste. Ashton is not supposed to be Charlie and he is doing a good job, considering no one would ever replace the previous character. I flipped past it the other night, but couldn't handle Miley's voice – she looks like a teenager with man-cougars after her – sickening.... and I think she kind of looks like a man with that hair, but if she likes it – good for her.
I agree with thecat61. It's called acting people, and she did a great job. She made the show. I loved it and I don't usually watch it.
How are the ratings so high when everyone wants Charlie back? If they didnt make Aston so goofy and gullable to John C. it wouldnt be so bad...the maid was funner then John C. Miley would make it more exciting.
I thought Miley added something to a really bad mix since the demise of Charley Harper and several other cast members. Ashton I hear is making really big bucks for his roll. I guess CBS has money to waste. Ashton is no Charley. Ashton is no different than playing Michael on the 70s show becasue thats the only game he's got. Although Miley added something, it was like watching Gomer Pyle.....I'm not feeling it!
I agree with George. The maid is funnier than John C. She deserves more credit than she gets.
I thought Miley was great....I would watch it if she came back...the show has been quite booring with John being such a huge moocher...how many ways can you make him a looser....he needs to go and bring Miley and the maid as the new show.
Am I the only honest american male in the country. This episode made me want to yank her clothes off with my teeth, tie her down & make her see GOD non-stop for a week. Miley has the best legs in hollyweird.
The new 'Men' sucks. I love Ashton but he just doesn't take the place of Charlie Sheen. But Miley's appearance was amazing. I just hated the accent. I'm a die-hard Cyrus fan so I love it anyways, haha. But my mother and I both agree that she should become a series regular(:
... Miley was the best part of the show. And, bring back Charlie!
Charlie is in jail. They say he die on the show so to put it back it will be weird and also difficult because he was put to jail. Just saying
I don't watch 2 1/2 men much except in reruns but i turned this on for some reason not knowing she was guest staring and she was a blast... I thought Miley was a breath of fresh air for the show. I never watched Montana so I never really saw her act but her character was funny... I see a reprisal down the road...
I'd do her...She is of age...And as maturity sets in, so will her beauty...LOL ok ok...I'd eat her for breakfast, lunch and dinner...Thank god she doesn't look like Billy LOL
She is not a good actor, and I find her voice annoying. Good thing for her she's smokin' hot...
Miley looks like a young Gwen Stefani,only s@xier,I want her to sit on my face all night.
Im sure the real Charlie Harper, has already bagged her a couple times.
She was about as annoying as a heard of mosquitoes swarming over your head as you're trying to sleep.
that was pretty funny. i don't really know how appropriate it was to talk about her boobs like that when shes a role model to so many young girls. especially with the way young girls are today. lol
but good episode. very funny.
I think it's pretty funny that some people are complaining on Miley's attire, but not one peep that Ashton is completely shirtless in the picture. Derp Derp
Nice job Miley!
I loved Miley in the show and thought her hair cut was darling on HER. Wouldn't do me any justice lol
Best episode since Charlie Sheen left the show. Miley was excellent, funny, quick, and totally believable, hope they bring the character back! Who care's about her hair, she is young and it grows back, the time to experiment with your looks is when your young, and she looks great!
I agree. Miley is a natural. I've always thought that since she was Hannah. She's another "young" Lucy Ball. Keep her on TV. We need her acting.
this haircut...its very modern looking and trendy. Miley looks fantastic.
For the love of god people quit hating I swear y'all just love to hate on celebrities you all are just jealous because y'all wish y'all were them.
Her hair cut is pathetic. Her hair is not even slightly attractive, and I do not know one guy who is attracted to her new style. It's funny how a couple of years ago she was saying that she knows exactly who she is. Sorry Miley, but drastically changing yourself and your look is an act of pure desperation of someone who doesn't know who they are.
Count me as one who likes it. Quit hating and move on. That girl is cute and will only get better looking as she gets older. People just love to hate and complain today. Did you notice the part about the highest ratings? Somebody must like her.
No one ever knows exactly who they are. She was obviously a different person two years ago. People change. How is she supposed to find out who they are if they don't experiment and try new things?
I AGREE WITH YOU!! Miley has gone too far with everything! The smoking, the hair, she is not cool! She needs God in her life and only GOD can change her.(At this point, save her).
she looks awsome with that haircut
I have honestly lost interest in this show but made it a point to watch last night. I seriously thought Miley did an awesome job! Her character, Missi, and Jake were the best part of the show.
The show has lost "it". Seems so contrived. poorly acted and predictable.
Congratulations , Cyrus !!!!
Her character was so obnoxious that you just wanted to smack her, but she was endearing and had that young girl sweetness. She did walk around in not a lot of clothes and she has a cute body. The hair though is so strange. It makes her ears and mouth look huge. I thought Jake was the best part of that episode.
she actually did a good job,the girl has better acting skills then i thought she did
In my day only ho-ochie mamas would show themselves in public looking like that.
Your days are numbered my friend. Times change.
All I have to say is that little missy needs to cover her bare self! Doesn't she have any modesty? Young ladies today seem to have no manners at all.
Wait, you're kidding right? She was fully clothed in both clips.
And I don't know what happens in the episode, but it's called playing a character. "Acting". You know that thing she's getting paid millions to do?
OMG!!!!!! Miley was awsome. Hey Cora, it's called acting. This is what they do for a living.
I'm not too sure. I don't ever watch this show. Never have watched a whole episode of it.
btw – I'm firsty.
