Charlie Sheen may be having his ups and downs on his concert tour, but he is sorely missed at CBS. This week “Mike & Molly,” which is also produced by Chuck Lorre, moved into the Monday time slot formerly occupied by “Two and a Half Men.” The show did okay, but viewership was DOWN 42% from what “Two and a Half Men” did at that time last year. So the network is not happy – it was, in fact, Warner Brothers who fired Charlie, not CBS. His fans want Charlie’s show back on the air (Above, his bodyguard Chuck Zito is keeping an eye on Charlie)

    I’ve said it from the beginning. Sheen WILL return to 2.5 Men. As George W. Bush would say, ‘You can write that down…”

    I’ve just watched bits and snippets of Two and half men, and every time Charlie was in the sack with some slut, so I never watched it. Which proves that the most low-class infamous ‘actors’ get more money than ones on family programs. Does anyone think this is the case and thus the continuing downfall of America?

    Ah, I had my cable TV disconnected 2 years ago. I order BBC, and HBO from Amazon. Watched about 15 mim. of 2.5 Men on my daughters TV, and am so happy that I cut the cord. ( I have a much larger rant, but this is not the place). I can not figure , for the life of me , what people see in this show ? This truly is the ‘DUMBING DOWN “Of America.

    For God sakes bring the Warlock back to the show! All the stars act like he does when off set with the parties, drugs and alcohol and never get caught!

    Although I am not a huge fan of 2-1/2 men(I prefer reality TV), I do have to admit that the bits and pieces that I have seen, are really very funny. It is the combination of characters that make it work. Charlie, the brother, nephew, housekeeper and the various “sluts” and the way they natter back and forth is what makes it all work. It’s not all Sheen, but he is or was a BIG part of it.

    The way that Charlie has been backtracking in his stand up shows regarding Cryer & Lorre, I do think he will probably be back. It won’t work though, people’s image of Sheen is forever shattered. The show is tainted by all the scandal and drama that has played out over the last few months. They had a good thing going.

    Tv is pure garbage. Name one show other than Mad Men worth watching. I wish networks would bring back real dramas with real actors who have real talent.

    CBS got what they deserved for supporting a woman beater and drug addict all this time.

    @Muffin Top!! ” I do think he will probably be back. It won’t work though, people’s image of Sheen is forever shattered. ”

    Oh, quite the contrary. This is America, and two things you must remember about us. 1) We LOVE a comeback. And 2) We have a VERY short memory. Outside of killing someone, this guy has got one of the most obvious opportunities to heal his image. I’m not saying it will last. That’s up to him. But it can definitely work again…

    I thought they were searching for another actor to take Charlie’s place on the show, or has that changed?

    If CBS takes Charlie back, they deserve all the trouble he’s already caused them and will cause them in the future.

    It may not be entirely up to CBS in the long run though. Will they be able to reassemble a production crew willing to subject their income and livelihood to Charlie’s whims again? That potential crew will be in a position to bargain worthy of the Jersey Shore cast.

    @Rick “It may not be entirely up to CBS in the long run though.”

    It’s not. It’s a WB move. But more than that, it’s Chuck L. And there’s too much money on the table. That’s all that matters…

    @Rick “That potential crew will be in a position to bargain worthy of the Jersey Shore cast.”

    Nah. Crew is easy to find/assemble in Hollyweird. And on a big show? You don’t wanna come back, we’ll pay him…

    He was in Boston last night. Local news reported he tried to call Jon Cryer from the stage. Too bad about that caller ID.

    The difference between Chuck Lorre and Charlie Sheen is that Chuck hasn’t thrown away every dollar he’s made on cheap-looking whores and crack cocaine. So while Charlie is scrambling to keep the dope money rolling in with his stage “show,” Chuck has got more than enough money to live in high style without ever doing another day’s work.
    Oh, and Two and a Half Men became unwatchable right around season 3.

    It will be interesting to see how long Charlie can continue to sustain interest in at least a few of his road show venues. I predict not much longer.

    I also don’t see him returning to the show, because they’d be out of their minds not to insist it be contingent on Charlie signing a new contract which makes him financially liable in the event he compromises production again. Not gonna happen.

    I am sure there is a Kardashian angling to get that time slot..then a white slut could end up in bed w/ a black rapper or athlete!

    I have to mention the steroid, bodyguard, goon ushering Sheen along.
    Ridiculous looking thug. And not really that tough looking.

    2.5 Men was a guilty pleasure of mine. I started watching it a few months ago. There are some episodes that really good but there are some that are brilliantly funny and laugh out loud hysterical.

    I have never been a Sheen fan but I enjoyed him in the 2.5 show. I think Jon Cryer makes the show. Cryer is a good guy and always seems sincerely thankful that he has a job. There were lots of rumors about Sheen being jealous of Cryer’s fans and comedic talent. I think that is one reason that the writers ended up making Cryer’s character, Alan, an obsessive penny pincher (so that he wouldn’t be as appealing to the public).

    The Charlie Sheens of the world will always get paid. Yes CBS is mi$$ing their cracked out cash cow. I predict the pigs will throw slop to entice their favorite warlock.
