CBS kills “Two and a Half Men” after Charlie Sheen rants
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Charlie Sheen finally slaughtered his cash cow.
After the actor ranted and raved on Alex Jones’ radio program, CBS pulled the plug on “Two and a Half Men,” citing the “totality of Charlie Sheen’s statements, conduct and condition,” TIME reports.
Sheen jumped from topic to topic with Jones, talking about trying to watch “Jaws” while on a yacht and eventually going after some easy targets like Alcoholics Anonymous and his “Men” executive producer, Chuck Lorre.
“There’s something this side of deplorable that a certain Chaim Levine — yeah, that’s Chuck’s real name — mistook this rock star for his own selfish exit strategy, bro. Check it, Alex: I embarrassed him in front of his children and the world by healing at a pace that his unevolved mind cannot process.
“Last I checked, Chaim, I spent close to the last decade effortlessly and magically converting your tin cans into pure gold,” Sheen continued. “And the gratitude I get is this charlatan chose not to do his job, which is to write.”
What do you think? Is the show completely dead? Can the network bring it back without Sheen? Should they just cut their losses and call it a run? It’s going to be an interesting weekend for all involved … most notably, Sheen.
