EGOS AND ETHICS ASIDE, CBS WANTS CHARLIE BACK UNDER HIS TERMS
The Charlie Sheen story took the biggest twist of all today. After Charlie filed suit against CBS for firing him, it LOOKED LIKE producers were thinking of recasting the show. But Charlie’s enduring popularity and ability to sell out concerts must have gotten them thinking they were fools to reject a cash cow – even a mad one. The only easy solution for all the bad press and lawsuits was to kiss and make up. Two and a half million dollars an episode for “Two and a Half Men” will certainly get Charlie’s attention. Chuck Lorre – the target of Charlie’s insults- will have to put his ego aside in the name of profits. Time to forget about taking the high road.
