"Two and a Half Men" might be more like "Two Men and a guest star" when it returns to CBS in the fall.
The network has renewed the comedy for another season with both Jon Cryer and Ashton Kutcher signed on to return.
But longtime series star Angus T. Jones, who's played Jake Harper since 2003, isn't expected to return full-time.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the 19-year-old actor who famously criticized the show last year is in talks with Warner Bros. about a potential recurring role rather than a regular slot.
Last November, Jones called "Two and a Half Men" "filth" in a YouTube clip that shows him discussing the ways the show conflicts with his Christian faith.
"I'm on 'Two and a Half Men,' and I don't want to be on it," Jones told viewers. "Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth."
Jones apologized for his remarks, and EW notes that CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler said in January that the series had moved on from his controversial statements.
“The kid’s 19,” Tassler said. "I’ve got a 24-year-old. Between the ages of 19 and 24 there’s been plenty of things my kid has come out and said that I wish he hadn’t, but the bottom line is cooler heads prevailed. [Jones has] been a beloved member of that cast for years and years and he issued a public apology. At the end of the day, they want him back and he wants to come back and that’s it.”
It's called the internet you download your tv shows now because whats on the box sucks why waste your time with crap

I LIKED THE SHOW WHEN CHARLIE WAS ON IT BUT I THINK IT IS BETTER WITH ASHTON. ME AND MY WHOLE FAMILY LIKE THIS SHOW AND LAUGH ALL THE WAY THRU IT...
Angus is just another ridiculous christian hypocrite.
I haven't watched it since Charlie left. Kucher (sp?) isn't even in the same stratosphere as Sheen as far as acting is concerned.
You said it. That Ashton guy makes me gag and I have to turn the channel. Even his ommercials suck.
I totally agree – I can't understand why this show is still on the air! I still continue to watch the OLD Two and a Half Men with Charlie.
jon is loaded with job offers.
Again, you are right that Jon is a terrific talent and funny as hell. So wasted in the new series but I guess everyone needs to get paid but I can't bear to watch it. Wish Jon had his own show.
Jon Cryer's Alan character is completely annoying and past its prime. Please limit his mooching story line or give him a job or better off...write him off!
I agree with you. Jon Cryer's character was funny as the mooching brother to Charlie Sheen's character (which really wasn't a character at all, but more a self portrait, which made it all the more humorous). Having Jon still desperate and broke and mooching off of a billionaire geek character isn't believable or funny, it's pathetic. Once Angus was past the gawky teen stage, the show should have wound down and ended with or without Charlie Sheen's meltdown.
I haven't watched two and a half men since Charlie Sheen left. Surprised they are still going...
i'm getting a period pimple on my forehead.
Angus T. Jones you sold your soul! You quit this show because it was so immoral but you're still there, taking the money!!
Charlie Sheen plays the human equivalent of the cartoon character Quagmire from Family Guy, a womanizer with lame pick-up lines. A perfect role for Charlie Sheen, Ashton Kutcher just can't hold a candle to it and shouldn't be on the show.
I never really cared for the show, only watched a few episodes here and there when nothing else was on. My favorite sitcoms are Everybody Loves Raymond and Big Bang Theory. I don't care if it's reruns, I probably missed a bunch of them anyways. I don't know if Two And A Half Men is any more filthy than some of the other shows but the same thing was said about Married With Children and Roseanne back in the day. If you don't like it, don't watch it, simple as that. I don't like The Office or Two Broke Girls, so Ii don't watch those shows. My tv is equipped with channel changing and off buttons, like I imagine everyone else's tv is too, USE THEM and stop complaining!
sh=t cast 3
i think ever since they got rid of the show it sucks , i mean ok ashton kutcher good and funny but just isnt his show and never has and never will be, when charlie sheen wasnt able come back to the show which he help create the whole show went with him , pretty soon they'll even replace jon cryer and for sure when they do that, the show will probably end and the network will have a once very great and funny show no longer a great show instead a crap show which i still only just watch the ones with charlie sheen in two and half men still, best ever and will ever be! I thank Charlie Sheen for all his good comedy and always im sure putting smiles on millions peoples faces and making millions laugh

ever since the got rid of the show????
God I hate Ashton Kutcher. Any thing he touches turns to poo.
This guy is so far up his own rear end (Kutcher, I mean) that he can't even see how pathetic his attempts at acting really are. That little ungrateful extremist christian can get lost too. Always hated this show, especially that bloody MEN MEN MEN song AARgh!
Ummm, so don't watch it.
It's the Kelso & Duckie show. The way Alan pines for Walden makes that the only possibility to keep this show going
Allan's mouching has gotten old,old,old. Paying Ashton Kutcher 7 hundred thousand dollars an episode, is just dumb. The truth is, he should be paying them.
Whats happening with it, haven't watched this season. If I watch it, its reruns on local UHF.
Hey, By the way,
I was out in Vegas a few weeks ago and was in the MGM Grand. We passed a guy at the front entrance (toward LVBLVD) and he gave us a coupon for a test screening. So we went ahead and went back to the mall area and found the Entertainment City test center. We went ahead and did the screening and what do you know, it was for en episode of 2 1/2 Men. They gave us a personal people meter to hold while the episode ran. You turned the dial up if you liked the scene and down if you didn't like it. Our group quietly suggested we torch Agus and turn it down when he spoke. So we did just that, we torched the kid by dialing down "dislike" whenever he spoke. Then they let us go. We felt a bit guilty after that and it may be what caused his write out.
i think they should drop the kid who doesn't want to be there and bring charlie sheen back as a ghost ( half Man half ghost) that only the two men can communicate with
It is a filthy show – but it is not the onl one.
Two Broke Girls is nasty too.
and there are others also...need to clean them up...leave something to the imagination.
Isn't there a christian channel for people like you?
yea charlie is cool...but it never hits charge the bullseye hits 2 people all the time....
we all of charlies problems its not going there...it keeps going too 2 main characters in the film...ds
dying too meet the cast members...it could be sooner then xpected.
and it went down hill with these 3
we be talking soon dear==all files are being cracked first.
Without Charlie Sheen, I think they can rename the show to "Half a man".
I used to watch the show with Charlie Sheen. I loved it.. Ashton just does not have it for this script.
Sheen fit his role perfect, the part was for a bad boy womanizer that everyone loved to hate... perfect role for him..
Ashton... well, just does not have that "gotta hate the guy" to make it work. He's also not very funny either...Stopped watching once they fired Charlie... gave it a try... it's just not there.
It's trash...cancel it!
I would say Ashton has the "Gotta hate the guy" thing you mentioned. He just can't act.
Star quality is what counts and aShton does not have it...
Couldn't agree more. After all these years in the spotlight working with good directors and actors, one would assume that you would learn how to act and behave in public. This Ashton Kutxcher guy is, what, 30 years old? And he still strikes me as a total amateur novice who is totally pretentious and ego maniacal! Get rid of him like Demi did!!!! He's a wannabe Steve-o!!!!
that's show business troll....some have the star quality and some don't...
Everything on this show remains the same and all are moving forward toward true happiness.
This has to be THE WORST TV SHOW ON TV!
True... I wanted to love it... I liked it with Charlie Sheen. I like Ashton K and tried to give it a chance.. It just went down hill...
Nothing is going too stop the show from goal....
I KNOW! I cant believe it is still on the air at all! WHO IS WATCHING THIS?!?! It really REALLY annoys me to see the ads come on for it during commercial breaks GOD IT IS JUST NOT FUNNY!!!!!!! And than FCKNG song "Men men men ,men" makes me wanna stab!
let it rip? BB this is gonna be great....
Reminders of the past are over and frankly what has happened to the 3 in the last 8 months will required a total revamp of cast. thanks
best thing for the show.
all 3 need too go the show needs a whole new makeover..
all 3 need too go the show needs a whole new makeover...
With Ashton Kutcher on the show replacing Charlie Sheen it sucks – I'll never watch it again. He looks stupid and he doesn't know how to act. With Charlie Sheen (and I am not a fan) it was fun with Kutcher it's a pain in the neck. Sorry!
Couldn't agree more. Jones stopped being funny years ago and the whole show was lost when Sheen left. I always thought the only hope after Sheen would have been for Judith divorce Herb and for Herb to move into The Boo with Alan.
only way too start a show fresh is too wipe out cast members and start fresh.
100% agree. This pathetic excuse for an actor shouldve dropped off after that abysmal 70's show, which also wasn't funny in the slightest. The man has simply got no talent and obviously relies on this looks to get his jobs. If Demi hadn't married him it would've been a much different story. We probably wouldn't have to suffer through his terrible acting right now.
This is very simple. Angus T. Jones distroyed his acting career by making the comments he made about the show that was paying him quite well, even if he had tired of it. No network is going to employ someome who calls their show "filth" and asks viewers to not watch. Angus is being written out of the show as he is unwelcome and it's no wonder. Why would anyone want him on the payroll? Now, let's fast forward 5 years and see how much acting work Angus T. Jones gets moving forward. Not much, I'm sure.
your should read what charlies wife said about him right on this very blog....
Now that's what you need to focus on or divorce relationships expert 1111
not a big deal...i look fabulous when i go out and i am in my home which i cannot figure how you know i have rollers in my hair...clearly in front of man i would not do this...worry about your gay problems...thanks.
he didn't ruin the ratings because he's gay....he ruined the ratings because he has a big mouth
where is that movie from relationships expert 1111
AnguSS can't bring in the ratings because he has big mouth
It seems like anguSS has worse problems then the ArmPit and Toe Movie....My toes are red by the way...
Please review the proper use of "then" vs "than"
when forming sentences, your's makes no sense.
Rider: Why did you put an apostrophe in "yours"?
I'm thinking it's pretty funny someone named "KooKooByrd" is correcting anyone's spelling of words.
a boyfirend who likes toys up the wazoo....its not that serious...
its too bad he he haSS a big mouth or he would get better support on the gay thing
didn't think is was that bad....
he had a huge amount of issues which he was not addressing....now he's much better and is back too being the whole show again....charlie finally looked in a mirror and realized hey i have iSSues too.
we need too support that.
he needed to get on is own and find a new show which now is working out for him.....all the best charlie
because i'm not a nag.
as long as the other party accepts it that's all that matter
Your see all that matter is the loyalty not the wazoo...do you understand..its the loyalty...who cares if angus
experiements its not what holds it together......i again have never had these issues and won't have them int
the future and why because the man i finally chose will know he won't get pressure from me ...
this is all that matters ...i never had loyalty problems and do not see them going forward however if you have these problems talk too your partner about it....
Angus i'm sure is a good man.
we have the armpit movie...i didn't see it that terrible did you?
does it really matter? no it does not.
al likes her armpt and everything else i may add.....but in your situation help the gay don't shut them away...
as long as he does not go with other men....its ok
it does not matter if he is gay or straight...
if he needs it up there..then he's thinking about it doing it or has possibly done it.......not that it matters cuz i could care less....preference is not what makes a person.... i'm boring i look at the heart...
are you worried he could be gay?
doeS not mattter at this point.
The kid looks (q)ueer anyway and they shoudl incorporate that into the show. One episode Ashton could walk in and catch them doing the tube steak bogey on the couch. Another week the kid has a gay sleepover party, The possibilities are endless.
This show, without Sheen, is a real snoozefest.
Kutcher just doesn't cut the mustard, he never did. He's not funny. Not like Sheen.
Yea Sheen was a bit of an oddball, but he made the show. Now the show just stinks like an old armpit.
Straight men like it there also....no biggie
Kutcher is not funny, PERIOD! No need to compare him to anyone. Martha Steward and Kathy Giffords are funnier than Kutcher. A potato is funnier than Ashton Kutcher. Hey, remake the show as "One man, a potato and some right wing extremist kid". I might actually watch then.
without Charlie Sheen, this show is not worth watching
Charlie was the whole show.
The show collapsed after Charlie left; not worth watching. As for this young man, isn't it wonderful how he no longer approves of the show, now that it's made him $millions? Talk about biting the hand that feeds you!!
if he needs it up there....then he's thinking about it doing it or has possibly done it.......not that it matters cuz i could care less....preference is not what makes a person.... i'm boring i look at the heart...
So he likes it up the wazoo....he's still a human being....that has nothing too do him being a human being.
who cares...i never did...
You say no, LOL. How do you know? I think he is gay. I'd like to help him be gay; give me a part on the show and we will really make it funny. Angus, you know you would love to play a gay due, don't you? Some say you like to bed up with some good looking gay celebs.
there many things too consider about this topic...i know a man who is bi....it happens...he is my friend and i love him dearly but once in awhile he needs a guy....hey its the truth folks...
Angus should continue to play on the show and be a young gay man who brings young gay men to the beach house and sleeps with them. I think that would add to the show and make it really funny. Angus would probably enjoy it and who knows, he might take a second look at cute men, if heasn't already. His future in actingis over. If he finds a gay boyfriend, he is likely to go the gay way. He is cute enough to squeeze and do more.
keep going dear so we get closer
deal with the outside glorification.
This show needed to be cancelled after they killed Charlie. Ashton was ok on 70"s, but after the first episode, I ditched this show. I actually think they would have had a better show with Herb living in the house with Alan.
2 and a half men is filth. The kid has guts ! I guess the money was too good to spit on. Just about all they do is glorify relations outside marriage ! A gutter show.
I don't understand – he's barely on it now. This season he has only appeared briefly in a handful of episodes – how will this be any different?
Relations outside marriage are the best. Go back to Church, or better still – HEAVEN!
The only good thing about this talent free piece of **** show is that it has seriously damaged Ashton Kutchers A-Class celebrity standing. After being on such a porrly written show for so long, noone gives two craips about Kutcher now and he will never get a serious role in a film again! YAY!
I don't see anything wrong with this comment. It's true!
Talk about poorly written. Our education system needs a lot of work.
keep talkin about the music
Ashton Kutcher does have talent, he was so good in The Butterfly Effect, I think it is called, it is one of my favorite movies. He should have known that no one can replace Charlies Sheen on that show.
Wow, so you can name ONE movie you thought he was good in. Don't you think the writers might have had something to do with that? Kutcher is too concerned about his good looks to concerntrate on acting. And @Dr MAtrix, I'm posting on a god dam message board in the entertainment section – do you think you're some kind of intellect for correcting peoples spelling? Get a Life!
The kid is right. The show is pure filth and it's only being peddled to make the persons of a certain "religious-ethnic" background richer.
Wow, Lou, really? Antisemitism? What a swell guy you must be.
Problem #1 – this kid's name is Angus.
His burgers cost like $6 at Hardees!
What is this show about anyways?
It's about a potato that just doesn't know when the world has had enough of him and won't go AWAY! That and a Christian Taliban Extremist kid.
the show stinks once Charlie was gone that was it
better now without sheen"dopehead"
the gap will break and we are moving forward if you can't handle it..then hit the off switch...sorry.
I'm an atheist and even I recognize this show as filth.
But, in a good way, or a bad way?
get rid of the 3 - charlie sheen was the whole show.
The show should have ended with Charlie Harper's death. It was truly crap a long time before, the writing relies on filth to make "laughs." Angus has already been a "guest." Just the fact the Ashton is in a sitcom doesn't mean it will succeed, this is NOT The 70s Show.
hes right, horrible show with horrible producers. easy to see.
Anus T Jones needs that money!
has access too cred rpts, med reports everything...check crd(outdated)
i love this show....so many memories when its cancelled.
the show will end soon.
What do you mean? The show's been over since Ashton stepped on the set. The show stinks now. Just cancel it and get it over with already.
She is heading back to the most famous firm of all time....and you? Oh yea....NUTTIN
does not matter...i'm going back to the most famous law firm of all time....what are you doing today...oh yea...this
Well An(g)us, enjoy the LAST acting job you will most likely ever get. I hope you invested your money wisely.
It's OK, Jon Cryer can take over the role of the half a man. Nothing against Kutcher, he's OK, but immediately after Sheen left, the writing elevated 100-fold on the crass and vulgar scale, with Cryer's character talking nothing about his lack of junk, his bowel movements, and all sorts of related topics. It's as if the show hired 13-year olds for the writing staff, but frankly I can't see how 13 year olds would find this funny. We watch Anger Management and have some laughs with good material. Two and a Half Men became real garbage when Sheen left, and it was already well on the way to the base vulgarity with the Alan Harper character prior to that.
He's barely on the show now, maybe once every three or four weeks. I'd call that recurring.
It's funny how he hates the show...but he's got no problem keeping the money the show pays him. Hypocrite, much?
Why is he a hypocrite for earning a paycheck? You like your job and love everything your leaders say and do? Or you work because you need the paycheck and there's no better grass on the other side? If you want to see a hypocrite, look in the mirror, and then also G00gle Envy + Ayn Rand for a nice short read on the hatred of good for being good.
@Bluedestiny He's a hypocrite, because he told his fans that it was a terrible show, filled with filth, and not to watch it. Not only that, he said how it conflicted with his Christian beliefs. The kid should be kicked in the azz. My next question would be, who the heII made you so high and mighty? You can take that Ayn Rand garbage and shove it where the sun don't shine.
Bluedestiny, you sound increadibly arrogant and ignorant. It is hypocritical to receive a paycheck for making a TV show and then telling everybody it is filth that should not be watched. He is not working at Mcdonalds making ends meet, it is not his only opportunity to make money – eg. he could work for a dumb christian channel or something – might not be the millions he gets now but it would be enough pocket money for a good christian boy to stay home n drink milk as he reads the bible.
I could have gotten used to the show without Charley Sheen but I liked it much better when Jake was younger. I tried to like it but It's just gotten too filthy to enjoy since Jake is "grown up" and they can say anything. I miss "mom" too...she's not on much.
This show took a huge crap when Charlie Sheen left. It should have been cancelled long ago.
And I was just thinking that I'm FIRST!
As in the above reply, here, you don't have to search for it, here it is... Ayn Rand's brief on Envy... be ready for your mind to be blown:
"Today, we live in the Age of Envy.
“Envy” is not the emotion I have in mind, but it is the clearest manifestation of an emotion that has remained nameless; it is the only element of a complex emotional sum that men have permitted themselves to identify.
Envy is regarded by most people as a petty, superficial emotion and, therefore, it serves as a semihuman cover for so inhuman an emotion that those who feel it seldom dare admit it even to themselves. . . . That emotion is: hatred of the good for being the good.
This hatred is not resentment against some prescribed view of the good with which one does not agree. . . . Hatred of the good for being the good means hatred of that which one regards as good by one’s own (conscious or subconscious) judgment. It means hatred of a person for possessing a value or virtue one regards as desirable.
If a child wants to get good grades in school, but is unable or unwilling to achieve them and begins to hate the children who do, that is hatred of the good. If a man regards intelligence as a value, but is troubled by self-doubt and begins to hate the men he judges to be intelligent, that is hatred of the good.
The nature of the particular values a man chooses to hold is not the primary factor in this issue (although irrational values may contribute a great deal to the formation of that emotion). The primary factor and distinguishing characteristic is an emotional mechanism set in reverse: a response of hatred, not toward human vices, but toward human virtues.
To be exact, the emotional mechanism is not set in reverse, but is set one way: its exponents do not experience love for evil men; their emotional range is limited to hatred or indifference. It is impossible to experience love, which is a response to values, when one’s automatized response to values is hatred."
I envy anyone who took the time to read that drivel. Wait, no I'm not. Just knowing that was Paul Ryan's hero, was enough for me not to waste those couple of valuable minutes to read that crap.
That Ayn Rand crap was lame. My mind was definitely NOT blown. She was a lousy writer and a muddled thinker.
Wow, how lame. You think you're so deep and political because you found that horrible womans book. NEWS FLASH – noone can be f****d reading that junk and you just sound pathetic if you cant post your own post, would you read an excerpt from a radical left wing ideaologist? No, I didnt think so.
Blown, but no happy ending....enjoy your paperback 'Fountainhead'
Two Broke Girls. Same garbage writing.
Charlie is hot...he's probably fun too
