Three more days will see Charlie Sheen once again unleashed on all our television screens, with the debut of Sheen's post 'Two and a Half Men' vehicle 'Anger Management.' Ever since FX picked up the project, very loosely adapted from the 2003 film of the same name, eyes and ears have been on Sheen to see how he'd handle his first gig after exiting CBS' powerhouse sitcom. Still, who needs hard feelings? The Ma-Sheen wants you to see the very best of 'Men' first!
Two and a Half Men
Being Upfront week, CBS is hard at work announcing and promoting its new series, as well as plotting out ways to incorporate them into the current schedule. Today a big move for the network's flagship comedy 'Two and a Half Men' is in the works, but what does it mean for its other comedies? Who's getting a big promotion, and who will be joining the 'Men' trio on their new night?
Every series is bound to have a bit of turnover through the years, particularly shows like 'Two and a Half Men' that juggle a wealth of talented creative minds over nine seasons, not even counting it's most obvious shake-up from Charlie Sheen. But on the precipice of locking down its cast and crew for a tenth, possibly final season, who's about to jump ship?
Though the negotiation efforts were far tamer than last year's mad dash scramble to replace Charlie Sheen in CBS' most popular sitcom, now 'Two and a Half Men' fans can rest easy that Walden, Alan and Jake will return for a tenth season of the long-running series. Whether or not they secured the lucrative pay hikes sought, is another matter.
We're definitely at that time of the season where all the network shows have started barreling toward their season finales, but still not quite far enough along that we don't have time to wait. But why toll in uncertainty over the season finales' of 'Two and a Half Men,' How I Met Your Mother, and 'The Big Bang Theory,' when we've got the scoop right here?
Fear not, 'Two and a Half Men' fans. Where one year ago it seemed the long-running CBS sitcom was desperate to put a lead actor in place after Charlie Sheen's famous departure, the current incarnation of Chuck Lorre's prize-winning sitcom will soon secure its future for a historic tenth, and by no means final season.
Juicing toddlers with sugar, paying for a dead woman's underwear, remaking a film before it's even hit theaters? That's just the tip of the iceberg (our hearts will go on). Last week just got ridiculous, and not in the good way.
You're all familiar with 'Two and a Half Men,' the head-scratchingly popular show that used to star Charlie Sheen, abuser of women, and now stars Ashton Kutcher, abuser of fame. The show's co-creator, Lee Aronsohn, recently had some despicable things to say about female-centric television from his throne of male righteousness.
And it seems like only yesterday we were reporting about the exorbitant amount of money the cast of 'Modern Family' sought to gain in their contract re-negotiations. What? It was? So that must mean that TV's other sitcom behemoth 'Two and a Half Men' must be due for some serious...really? No? Hmm.
