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.

    What a bafoon, I use to like this guy but his arrogance is too much to bare, to berate the executive and writers isn’t bad enough he insults the fans who watch his show. The best thing the creators and executives of this show could do is severe ties with this imbecile and bring in another star to fill Charlie Sheen’s role. How about Sean Penn, or Matthew Broderick show this idiot no one is irreplaceable especially this arrogant ass. Maybe he needs some tough love, he needs to be ignored by his show, by Hollywood and by fans who at one time adored him but should know now his true colors have been shown and he needs to be put in his place, see how he likes then not being in the spot light anymore and another actor stepping in and seeing them carrying on without him. I feel bad for his fellow cast mates and talented writers and creators who have to put up with this most childish and selfabsorbed spoiled Hollywood brat.
