Miley Cyrus brings 'Two and a Half Men' season high ratings

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?

    It was a decent episode. She basically played herself (talking a mile-a-minute). But it was funny.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    • Charleyfan310

      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!

    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.

    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.
